You probably have a broken motor coupler.
Pop off the trim pieces on the front edges of the console.
Remove the two screws that hold the console to the cabinet and flip the console back.
Remove the two clips that hold the cabinet to the rear panel of the washer and unplug the lid switch harness. The cabinet will tilt forward and slide off.
Remove the clips holding the water pump and move it to the side.
Unplug the wires from the motor and remove the clips holding it.
You will see the motor coupler.
Make sure you can turn the gearcase shaft with a pair of pliers so it is not locked up.
You can get a coupler for about $10.
If it breaks again in a few months, then there probably is a problem somewhere in the transmission or basket drive.
Post back if you have any questions.
Thanks/Mike

I'VE HEARD THIS SONG BEFORE FILL, NO AGITATE, DRAIN, AND NO SPIN. YOU HAVE A STRIPPED DRY COUPLING, WHICH IS A PLASTIC RUBBER COMBINATION THAT CONNECTS THE MOTOR TO THE TRANSMISSION. REMOVE SCREWS AND FLIP TOP CONSOLE UP. FLAT HEAD SCREW DRIVER REMOVE CLIPS AT CORNERS, DISCONNECT 2 WIRE PLUG. PULL WHOLE OUTER CABINET TOWARDS YOU AND PULL AWAY FROM MACHINE. LOOKING AT THE BOTTOM CENTER, REMOVE SCREWS HOLDING MOTOR CLIPS, DISCONNECT ALL PLUGS (HARNESSES) AND REMOVE MOTOR. COUPLING WILL BE VISIBLE AND PEGS/RUBBER WILL BE WORN, REPLACE AND REASSEMBLE

Model lsr5132pq0. Why won't it agitate?


I have an older model (about 15 yrs old) that a similar problem. I turned it on its side thinking it was a broken drive belt. There was no belt because it was a direct drive. I removed the motor and found a white plastic coupling (285753A) that had its teeth broken off. I found the part at a local parts store for about $10.

I have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washing machine (model LSN1000JQ0). The washer will fill with water and begin to agitate. Shortly after it will stop and will not drain. I've cleaned all hoses


see the next steps and use the common sense: God bless you
It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably 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--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port. Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job. If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump. It doesn't spin or pump If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. It pumps, but the water returns If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems: If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

Whirlpool Washer model # LSN1000KQ0 overfilling


did you plug the hose back into the water level switch, double check to see if it is plugged, if it is your water level switch might be defective. trouble shoot by taking the front panel off... turn on the washer by using the timer, set water level to small...on the bottom of the tub housing there should be a nipple where the clear hose connects onto.....follow the clear hose from the switch down to the bottom of the tub.........disconnect the clear hose on the bottom of the tub.....plugg the nipple with your finger.........gently blow into the hose with your mouth.......but make sure the water level in the tub is at least at half way full...and the washer is on and filling up with water ...after you blow into the hose the washer should agitate.......if it does agitate your water level switch is defective...connect hose back........get your model number and source for the switch.........

GE WASHER WJSR4160GWW Won't Agitate


Sounds like tub belt failure. Check online for model layout. If unit is belt driven, remove back panel to access internal works. Look for broken belt. Depending on setup, control system stuck on water pump. Else possible control panel failure or motor (if water pump separate).

Whirlpool Ultimate Care HD Plus Model #LSR8233EQ0 won't agitate or spin


It sounds like the coupling between the motor and gearbox has worn out. It should cost around $15 plus shipping and handling.
