Question about Whirlpool LSR5132PQ Top Load Washer

Whirlpool topload filss, will not agitate, spin or drain.

Hi,
I have a top load whirlpool which fills but will not agitate, spin, or drain. Switch seems to work. When you turn it on, the motor sounds strained. If you try to operate the agitator by hand, the top part will spin freely, but the bottom will not move.

WASHER FILL, NO PROBLEMS AGITATING, WHEN TIME


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

The Kenmore / Whirlpool top load uses a reversing motor to initiate the pump for draining and the transmission to spin.

If you cannot hear the motor trying to turn the pump, (but the washer will agitate) the problem points to the Timer, or the Lid Switch.

Try to bypass the Lid Switch by removing the Console and jumping the two outermost pins on the switch.

This is the Whirlpool PDF on installation and maintenance of direct drive washers. See the section on how to bypass the lid switch and on the transmission.

WHIRLPOOL INST AND MAINTENANCE INCLUDING HOW TRANSMISSION WORKS

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

Following is an illustrated description of how to remove the cabinet on Kenmore / Whirlpool top load direct drive washers.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

Since it won't drain, the problem points to the lid switch. You already have the cabinet off so replacing the switch isn't too difficult.
The Sears site has the Sears (and probably Whirlpool) part number.

My washer is not draining or spinning. It fills & agitates. whirlpool LLR8245DQ0 . i LOWERED THE DRAIN HOSE AND DRAINED IT BUT IT STILL DIDN'T SPIN


It may be the wire from pressure switch is either not receiving power through the switch or it may be broken? If that is ok then check timer.

My Whirlpool washer won't agitate or spin . But it does drain the water.


i also had the same problem, and it ended up being the coupler. It was not hard to replace, it cost me about 19.00. I didn't follow full recomende instructions. I tipped the washer backwards. Removed the drain pump and the motor itself. Then I removed the old coupling and placed the new one. The washer is working like new...
