Question about Whirlpool LSR5132PQ Top Load Washer
At first my washing machine just started out by making a very loud "thumping" noise at the end of every spin cycle, and it just go progressively louder. Now, the noise isnt quite as bad, however, the water is not completely draining from my machine, and there is a slight burning smell at the end of the spin cycle. it seems to me that the spin cycle it self isnt causing the noise, but when the cycle has ended and the machine's drive has disengaged; thats when the noise really gets bad.
Please help!! I am enlisted Navy, so $ is always tight, so just buying a new machine is out of the question...Im really hoping this is just something I can repair on my own.
Thanks very much for your time,
Tony I have a whirlpool washer, less than a year old. I am not sure if it is normal or if there is a problem. When the machine is turned on, for the first few minutes, the cycle makes a loud noise and than the noise level goes down. Is it normal?
The smell is your clutch and the lack of draining is a clogged washer drain protector. see these at www.repairclinic.com drain protector is part 541811 and clutch is 2670. go there enter model number and scroll down to the red 100 click it and look for these part numbers.

The basket drive and the drive block will need replacing. The nut that holds the basket to the drive block may have come loose causing the drive block to 'jump' over and damage the tabs on the basket drive that causes the thumping as the spin cycle ends. To repair, you will need to purchase a basket drive and drive block. The agitator, balance ring, basket and transmission, will have to be removed in order to replace the basket drive. If less than 3ys old, consider contacting whirlpool for possible warranty concession.
