Question about Whirlpool LSQ8243H

2 Answers

Whirlpool Lsq8243h After loading the Wahser, the water comes, and then the motor starts, but it wouldn't spin. It tries, but then start making noise. It only happened tonight when I think I loaded the washer with more than I should have. I have done this in the past and don't think that it would break the motor. Seems like that something stuck inside, but I don't have to remove the part that spins and moves the clothes around inside the wahser.

    Sorry for the late reply as I was out. Actually, I did that but didn't
    find any belt at all. Is the belt supposed to be all the way down
    near the edge. I couldn't get underneath the round plate. Any other
    suggestions will be appreciated.

    My Whirlpool washer, LSQ8243H, makes a clicking noise, but will not agitate or spin. It still fills with water and the pump still drains the washer.

    There is no belt on this machine that I can find. The motor housing appears to be connected directly to the spinning drum.

    The drum will not move when I try to move it with my hand. Perhaps there is something stuck inside, but I THINK that the drum doesn't move manually even when the machine is working properly.

    Any ideas?

You are correct, there is no belt on this model. it is a direct drive. The motor drives a gearbox that attaches directly to the drum. Mine is having the same problem and I'm lean toward the gear box being bad.

If it doesn't agitate but will spin it is probably the agitator cams.

If it doesn't spin it is probably the motor drive coupling

Here is a link to the part and a video on how to replace it.
I would suggest watchine the Video before you order the part then you can check if this is the problem.

If you have a direct drive washer made by Whirlpool, your washer transmission has what is called a neutral drain built into it. It is designed to pump water out before it starts to spin. After water has drained out, the timer has a pause in it where motor shuts off for about 5 seconds. When motor comes back on, transmission is then in gear to spin. If timer never pauses, then washer never goes in gear to spin. Timer is most likely defective.

LSQ8243H does not agitate and spin after water was filled, but pump the water out. What is wrong?

If you hear motor running, then probably bad coupler. Lately I have been seeing more and more bad transmissions in these.

Water refills after a complete cyle. GHw9100L

Had similar problem and ended up being the valve. Try shutting the water off to the wahser during the spin cycle. If the water doesn't refill, that is the issue.
