Question about Washing Machines
The tub on my whirlpool heavy duty super capacity plus washer model number lsr7233ezo fills with water and drains but won't spin. It makes a noise like something is spinning but when I looked under the washer I couldn't really see anything
I am not a appliance repair technician, but before one starts taking apart motors, and drives, it would be imparitive to simply check the lid switch I have repaired several washing machines by simply checking this part.

If the washer will fill and drain, but won't agitate or spin, this is usually a sign that the motor coupling has broken. The noise of the motor engaging, lack of agitation and ability to still drain are common symptoms. This is a common fail item with this model washer through normal wear and tear. Newer versions of the coupler are more resilient and resist breaking. The following link explains how to replace one:
The motor coupling is located between the drive motor and the transmission and takes the place of a drive belt. They do wear out and can break. The replacement part number is included in the link I provided and is an improved upgraded coupling that is more resilient. It should last longer.
A replacement coupler can be purchased on line at appliancepartspros.com for about $11. Just use the part number in the link and "Search by Part Number" for your search criteria.
If you have questions about this repair, or if you require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
