Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
My Whirlpool washer drum has become tilted, probably the result of an uneven load. Now, when it's filling, the water splashes against the rim and flows into the outer area of the washer, eventually flowing out from underneath the base. I have to tilt the drum back into place while it's filling to make sure the water goes directly into the drum....which is impossible when it's spinning and rinsing. How do I get the drum back in place...permanently? It's a Whirlpool Heavy Duty Large Capacity Washer .. Model #LLR6144BQ1

You have likely stretched one of the side support springs or knocked it loose, you will have to open the side/back panels to see.
sometime you can just pull it out tilt the washer back and see it from underneath. disconnect power to live.

SOURCE: Washer not spinning/agitat
This problem is usually attributed to a broken motor coupling. The following link provides step-by-step instructions on how to replace one:
The motor coupling is a small 3-piece component that is installed behind the drive motor and couples it to the transmission. It is common for these small couplers to break as they wear out. The key symptom in determining the cause is the fact the washer will not agitate, but still drains. The reason is because your drain pump is mounted on the front of the drive motor and will still run as long as the drive motor is running. The part number is provided in the link I gave you. A replacement coupler can be purchased at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com or repairclinic.com. All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop all of them for the best price. Make sure you "Search by Part Number" when looking up the part. This shouldn't cost more than $20. If you do not wish to order on line, take the part number I provided and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. This is a common item they should have in their inventory.
If you have questions along the way, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

This problem is commonly attributed to a water inlet valve that has become clogged with sediment or calcium deposits over time. If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, this is a common problem. You can remove the valve and attempt to clean it by soaking it in a 50/50 solution of distilled vinegar and water, or you can simply replace it all together. If you're going to go the route of removing the valve, it makes better sense to replace it, rather possibly having to repeat the steps again if cleaning the valve doesn't work. The following link explains how to access and replace one:
Replacement parts can be purchased at any of the following web sites:
I have found these sites to be reputable and provide great service. Prices differ between them, so shop and compare. If you do not wish to order parts on line, look up the part numbers on the Sears site and check with your nearest appliance parts retailer. These is a common part that may be commonly found in their in-store inventory. The average cost is about $30 - $35.
If you DO wish to attempt to clean the valve to save some money, submerge the valve in a 50/50 solution of distilled vinegar and hot water for about 30 minutes and flush with clean water. DO NOT submerge the electrical connections.
You may also try any number of calcium, lime and scale removers on the market. CLR comes to mind as a good product, but use in a well ventilated area. It has some very strong fumes.
If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Testimonial: "Great advice. I will follow your clear and easy steps. Sounds like one or the other solution will be fine."
First you should remove the hoses and clean the screens in the ends of the hose, some hoses have screens in both ends. While the hoses are removed look inside the water inlet valve there should be a screen in there also remove and clean the screen out. Some screens will not be removable so you will need to clean in place or remove the water inlet valve. If all is clear you will need to check the solenoids on the water inlet valve for power.If the solenoid has power when put in a fill cycle and no water eneters your washer you will need to replace the water inlet valve. Most water inlet valves must be replaced as a unit, so if one solenoid fails you replace the hole valve assembly. These are inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html that will walk you thru the testing procedure. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same. If you need help disassembling there are also videos of disassembling most styles. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models will be available. All parts come with installation instructions.
