Question about Whirlpool LSR8433K Top Load Washer
Tried the different cycles and none of them agitate. If I manually advance timer, will spin and pump out the water. Is this a timer problem? Don't think it is lid switch since it spins out.
It is not a timer problem. This means the mechanism for the spin is still working and the agitation mechanism is not working.
The motor has 2 direction of rotations. One for agitation and the other is for spinning. Of course, there is a mechanism to assist this purpose. Your are lucky since it is easy to fix the agitaition mechanism than the spinning one.
If you take out the front pannel, you can access to the bottom of the shaft, The little white plastic is worn out. This one is the mechanism to activate the agitation. The rest you see are the brake, the clutch and the pulley to take care of the spinning mechanism, but you don't have to worry about them.
You just need to replace this white plastic part then you are good to go. Good luck.
