    My Whirlpool washer SM8525079 will not finish a cycle at all. Seems like the timing is ******* up? Do you have a direction to point me to.

    On the inside lid, I was not able to find any numbers on the back panel. Maybe I am looking in the right place?

    This is your model LSQ9600LW0 The part you need is 3954071 that is a timer. The model number is located below the bottom of the lid when it is in the open position. You have to bend down and look below the lid

SOURCE: My Whirlpool washer won't spin

Hi, It sounds like the coupler has broken. If the motor runs but doesn't do either of these things, here is how to Removing the cabinet. UNPLUG the washer. There are two screws holding the control panel to the cabinet. Most models the screw are in front but, some models have the screws in back. They are on each end. Now raise the control panel up and let it rest on the hinges. Unplug the lid switch harness and locate the clips on each side (bronze in color) and release them.
Now the cabinet will lift off the frame and you can set it aside.

How to replace a coupler:
Now that the cabinet is out of the way, remove the pump from the motor and set the pump off to the side. Remove the two screws holding the clips on the motor and remove the clips. Unplug the motor harness and on some models you wil need to unplug the capacitor.
Now you will need to replace all three parts to the coupler. I use a ½” socket and a small hammer to force the coupler onto the motor and transmission shafts. Put the rubber part onto the coupler half on the transmission and then line up the post on the motor shaft with the holes on the rubber part and it should go on ok. Put the clips that hold the motor in place and plug in the harnesses.
Put the pump back on and the clips to hold it in place. Set the cabinet back on the frame. Make sure the lip on the front cabinet is under the front rail of the frame. Ease the cabinet on the frame making sure the two rear sides of the cabinet set down on the tabs of the frame.
Put the two clips back on that hold the cabinet and plug the lid switch back in. Fasten the control panel down and you are all set.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

SOURCE: whirlpool model SM 8525079 fills with water but

If you have motor sounds after water fill,but no agitation or spin it could be a broken direct drive coupling. If it will not pump out water,there could be something stuck in the drain pump.

Whirlpool model SM 8525079 fills with water but will not agitate or spin


If you have motor sounds after water fill,but no agitation or spin it could be a broken direct drive coupling. If it will not pump out water,there could be something stuck in the drain pump.

My Whirlpool washer, model number WTW5521SQ0 won't spin


This problem is frequent and is usually caused by the lid switch. It wont activate the spin for safety reasons, however it will drain. You should be able to hear the clicking of the switch while you open and close your lid. If you don't hear a clicking sound it is most likely faulty and will have to be replaced, part number for the lid switch is 8318084. If the switch is okay it will most likely be a transmission problem, and will have to be diagnosed by a technician. Check for any large oil leaks around the inside of the cabinet. If so this could be an early indication of a transmission problem Hope this helps

Thanks

Washer will not spin or agitate. Pump works.


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.

First, see the following Whirlpool Kenmore installation and service manual for top load, direct drive washers.

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

If it drains and you can hear the motor trying to turn the transmission for the agitate mode, the obvious first answer is the Motor coupler. I'd replace it just to be sure.

If it's not the Coupler, the problem points to the transmission itself.

There are only two components of the gearcase that are used for both agitating and spinning.

One is the Agitator shaft which drives the agitator and holds the spin pinion that drives the clutch for spinning.

The other is the main "Bottom and pinion gearcase" itself.

Please see the following Whirlpool parts list for commercial top load direct drive washers although the consumer models use the same transmission parts.
