Question about Whirlpool LSR7333 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer motor hums....

My top load washer stopped just before spin cycle...the motor hums, but nothing else. I replaced the lid switch, start capacitor, and pulled the motor/transmission out, removed the trans. cover to find any problems there. NO OBSTRUCTIONS in the trans. case...
It SEEMS like the motor is locked up...and I'm not going to plug it in and see it smoke. Any ideas?? It's only 4 years old, minimal use-2 to 3 times per week.

    I checked the switch with an ohmmeter, and it's good, no burns, etc. This machine sounds like the motor JUST CAN'T TURN....

    I replaced the motor with a new Maytag motor and it runs like new!

Kenmore stylemaster 902202 will not spin, agitate or drain tub spins freely


Check door switch: If the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining. Release switch. Motor should stop. Press switch a second time. Washer should start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid switch is pressed, replace the switch. Or

The washer will fill up with water but it wont start washing or drain or spin you hear a humming noise then everything stops. Then in about 5 mins it will hum again then stop again


If the washer will not agitate, spin or drain it's a motor problem, capacitor or a broken motor coupler. It's either a loose wire connection on the start circuit or failed contact in the timer. When you say that the motor hums during spin, that would indicate that the motor has run voltage, but it has no start voltage. It needs both start and run voltage in order to get the motor started and running. The start voltage gets the motor started, and once started all it needs is run voltage to keep it running. The only difference between agitate and spin is that the polarity is reversed in order to start the motor in the opposite direction. The reversal of the polarity is controlled by timer contacts 7 and 14.

Most likely it's a timer or loose wire connection.

I have a Roper Washer Model RTW4340SQD that


The lid switch is on the top left side of the top cover. If it is bad the machine will fill and stop. The lid switch must be good for the machine to agitate and spin.

Washer agitates, drains OK, but spin doesn't start


Timer is defective. Your unit has a netural drain. When finished agitating, the shuts down and then starts up reversing to drain and spin. On the initial reverse start, the water drains without the transmission spinning. After a timed period 3-4 minutes, the timer is supposed to pause, stopping the motor for a few seconds. When the motor stops again, the transmission shift to the spin cycle and when the timer resumes power tothe motor it should spin. You are doing the same thing when you lift the lid...stopping the timer and then the tranny shifts and when you set the lid down, the washer spins. Replace the timer.......

Whirlpool ultimate care II will not spin


You said,washer is full of water and will not spin. You hear the lid switch clicking. When you start it on spin cycle and hear a hum, the tub moves a couple of inches and then stops...shortly after it shuts off.


Some reasons this may happen
Washer won’t drain or spin
n
1. Is the drain hose clogged, or the end of the drain hose
more than 72 inches (183 cm) above the floor?
2. Is the lid open? ............Also the lid switch can be faulty!!
The lid must be closed during operation.
3. Is there excessive sudsing?
Always measure detergent. Follow manufacturer’s directions.
4 If you have very soft water, you might need to use less
detergent.

Sounds to me like the lid switch can be faulty!!Then it acts like the lid is open.

Humming noise during spin cycle


Strangely enough, the electronics in the motor drive circuits are quite hardy. Suggest if motor does agitate but not spin, check the motor brushes and see what length and condition they are in.Have had to replace brushes on many occasion.If you have a motor that has a capacitor then check the cap. It could be defective.
