Question about Whirlpool LSQ8000 Top Load Washer

Good power, tub will not turn

Before I replaced my water pump, my tub turned just fine. When I replaced my water pump outside, I added water to the tub and used an extension cord to test my whirlpool washer before bringing back into the house. Tub would not turn. I brought the machine back inside, eliminating the extension cord, and turn would still not turn. Did I blow a fuse with the ext cord or what happened? I actually repeated this process of testing another good washer of mine that was in my garage, Kenmore, and the same thing happen, tub froze. Going crazy and feel I may have messed up 2 very good washing machines. Any help or suggestions?????????

Tub, is the lid switch plugged in? If not take a jumper wire and jump out the two ends on the harness. Timer controls recirculation and spin. The motor turns both ways. The spin cycle goes through the lid switch. Catriver..post back

Why does the bubbles come on when I turn on the heat on Intex PureSpa Hot Tub


im sorry to let you know, but water intrusion (splashing) to inside the control box and hence all sort of "gremlin" behavoiur is very common with these units
the perm fix that i have done for this is to replace control unit , have an electrician add longer wires to pump and sensor and i moved control box to other side of patio , where its not as likely to get splashed allso i added a waterproof roof to it as well to shed rain water away from it , so far so good as it's worked ok for four years that way

My jacuzzi bath tub will not shut off.I have reset the breaker, blown out the plastic line and air is coming out the other end but still wil not shut off. We have only used this tub 2 or three times. Any...


It sounds like your pump in turning on/off with an air button on the top of the tub.
The pump not turning off could be either a bad air button, not sending enough air through the tub to operate the air switch in the motor or it could be a back air switch in the motor where the air hose attaches to it.
Take a large straw and blow into the air switch and see if you can operate the air switch on/off.
If it will turn on/off then you know you have a bad air button on the tub however, if you cannot get it to turn the pump on/off then you know you have a bad air switch in the motor.

Spa thermal overheating


Turn off all power to the hot tub as soon as you realize it is overheating. The spa should have an automatic shut off when the water temperature reaches about 112 degrees fahrenheit. Call your hot tub dealer or manufacturer for service options. There are a variety of conditions that could lead to the overheating of your hot tub, but may differ in various hot tub models and brands. Check the water level of the hot tub. Low water levels could be the culprit for the over heating, so you may just need to add more water to the hot tub.
Check the shut-off valves in the hot tub. If they are closed while the hot tub heater is on, it could cause the water to reach unsafe temperatures.
Clean the hot tub filter. A dirty filter could be blocking the flow of water, causing the water to sit in the hot tub and overheat.
Turn the power back on after finding the problem and talking to the hot tub dealer. The hot tub will probably not start back up until the water reaches a safe temperature

Had turned on the jacuzzi tub and had power failure. Did not turn it off after power came back on. Pump ran without water for 6 hours. How do I test to see if this is now ruined?


Put water in as required, see if the pump leaks out. If not, turn on pump and see if it pumps water. Six hours is a long time, but I would check it before making an assumption that it is damaged.
If it is damaged, you will have to drain the water to repair/replace it.

Car overheated Iin November of 2010. Turned it off, cooled it down, added coolant - no further problems. Today, May of 2011, red warning light came on 10 minutes into drive. 50's outside temp. ...


Sounds like a bad water pump or radiator. Make sure the radiator fins arent clogged or inside of radiator, water pump not circulating the coolant properly will also cause overheating, old coolant will not properly dissipate heat efficiently and may need flushed. Also make sure the coolant has a 50% mix of water as the water does most of the cooling not the antifreeze. Hope this gives you some good places to start.

Washert not draining


If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line might be clogged.  In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump. You already have replaced the pump motor and still no operation,  so check the power voltage to the pump during the drain cycle.   Verify the problem is not pump related as much as power to the pump being the problem.

Error code 37!!!!!!!!!


I had the same problem. The machine was not draining. I drained the water tipped the machine on its face and exposed the pump. As you face the bottom of the pump there is a plastic lever on the left hand side of the pump. Depress the lever and turn the pump assembly counter clocwise to remove. In my machine I found a piece of a toothpick and a bit of cellophane. Enough to stop the pump impellor. Aside from draining the water it took me an hour to figure this out. Next time it will be 5 minutes!
Good Luck
