Question about Washing Machines

Washer not spinning

My washer washes and drains, but will not spin at all. It is a Whirlpool Model# LSQ8243HQ0. It is also making a light grinding noise. Help! We live way out in the country & it will cost too much for anyone to come & repair it! I can't exactly remember how old it is, maybe 10-12 yrs?

    The drive coupling is mounted between the motor and transmission.
    On a scale of 1 to 10 repairing this item is about 3 very easy. Basically you remove the cabinet from the base of this washer and do the repairs. The idea being to save a lot of backs by working on the unit in place in the laundry room. copy and paste any of these facinating links since my way of doing it don't seem to be working tonight:

Our washer is making a grinding noise when the washer drains and when the tub spins any ideas what it might be. Washer seems to work fine just making that noise during a drain and spin cycle.


This sounds like you may have something caught in the drain pump. One of the most common items to get stuck in there is a woman's bra wire. Check it out.
