Whirlpool LSR8010PQ0 motor hums and leaks water


Somethnig is wrong with your transmission. Since it is leaking, the seals are broken or damaged. The water leaked in your transmission. The problem with Whirlpool washing machines, the motor is directly coupled with the transmission. There is a high probability that the leaking water corroded the transmission, thereby freezing it. Your best bet is to have the transmission and the water leak fixed. Do not run the washing machine till you have this fixed, otherwise, you face the chance of losing your motor.

Washing Machine Motor Coupling Repair


How do you tell if your washer motor coupler has gone bad? Motor couplers are used on "Whirlpool" direct-drive washing machines. In some Whirlpool or Whirlpool-made washing machines, the motor coupler connects the drive motor to the transmission. It operates under extreme conditions and stress. Mostly during start-up and stopping of the motor. The main symptom of a bad motor coupler in the Whirlpool made washing machines is that there is no agitation or spinning action, along with the sound of the motor running. Since the motor is running, but there is no connection to the transmission, the machine will not agitate or spin the clothes out. The motor will simply run, but nothing else happens. In this case, the coupler is most likely cracked. To replace the coupler in the Whirlpool made washer, you must first unplug the washer, remove the top console by either removing the screws or using a putty knife to unsnap the top clips, rotate the console back, pull the washer front off by tilting back,and set the cabinet aside. Remove the clips holding the pump and motor on. Remove the bolts holding the motor on. Inspect the coupler and replace with a coupler if necessary. Re-assemble the motor and pump assembly. Re-assemble the washer in reverse order of disassembly. Plug in and test by running the washer through it's paces.Here is a video on repairing the motor coupler.

Washer will only wash.


A Clothes Washer with the complaint of "Fills, Agitates, But Does not Drain or Spin" can be:

Defective Door/Lid Switch (Very Common): The lid-switch "that clicking sound you may hear when opening/shutting the door" can become defective after constant "slamming or dropping" or the door. This switch is a relatively simple repair. The lid switch can be located on the inside top of the machine and can be typically removed by (2) screws and un-plugging the electrical from the inside. The lid-switch costs about $15 or so for the part.

Drive-Belt or Coupling (Common) - You may have either a belt or coupling that may connect to the motor, transmission (pulley) and pump (on direct-drive machines). The belt and coupling is the driving force that engages your tub to spin and drain. Typically, upon receiving power from the lid-switch at beginning of rinse cycle, the "drive-train" (motor, transmission and water-pump) is "kick into action". Belt-Drive Machines: The belt is fairly simple to replace and runs about $20 or so. The belts circles and inter-connects with the Transmission Pulley, Motor Pulley or even with the Water Pump Pulley (Metal Cylinder type with belt groove). Direct-Drive Machines: The coupling runs about $10 or so is a little more complicated to repair. The coupling is a total of (3) small - inter-locking plastic components located and attached between the motor (mounted to shaft) and transmission (mounted to shaft) and enables the transmission to spin, upon motor receiving power.

Timer Control - (Very Uncommon)

I believe this is a similar model to mine, which did the same things. This is a direct drive style (no belt). What possible happened is the coupling in between the motor and transmission has broken partially, and it "grabbing" only under a light load. It's a relatively inexpensive (under $5) part, and can be changed pretty easily.

These couplings can be found on Ebay:

If this link doesn't post correctly, just search for "whirlpool coupling". Good luck.

Samsung Washer WT1101cw will not drain. Originally had a OE error. Running "Spin" or "Rinse Spin" cycles but pump cycles on for less than 1 second and goes into spin with water in it. _Laundry loaded with a OE error and water not draining. _I manually drained the system, took apart the drain and did not find a clog or anything to prevent the motor from turning. _Pump motor reads continuity. _Ran multiple SPIN cycles and then a RINSE and SPIN cycle and actually had the pump run for a few seconds and even for a minute or so one time but could not repeat and hasn't since. _checked the Pressure Switch and see continuity between common and outside contact. Tried to increase pressure by blowing into the tube using a straw on the end of tube but saw no change. Not sure how the pressure is created inside the bowl. _There was no overfill condition originally and I have not tried to run a normal cycle because the washer is in an upstairs location and draining is difficult and messy. ___I believe that something is preventing the voltage from being sent to the pump motor but I have am not sure what logic conditions need to be satisfied for this to happen.I keep looking at the pressure switch because the drum will perform a load sense and then go into a spin cycle with water in it which sloshes around. Questions: --Shouldn't the drain pump normally be running prior to the spin? --what causes the change in the pressure switch? Does the switch only change at a "full" level? Please only answer if you have a clear understanding of the system. I am trying to avoid excessive expense in this repair and swapping parts unnecessarily. I am beginning to think that it is the control board and do not want to spend hundreds of dollars if it is not. Thanks.
