Question about Whirlpool LTE5243D Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer
The motor is reversible. One direction it washes.The other direction she pumps and she spins. When it goes into spin the spin pawl is tucked in neat as a pin under the main drive gear by latch and a trip lever. The timer has a momentary pause built into it after the pump has had time to remove the water from the drum. Centrifugal force activates the neutral package and shift the spin pawl out wards. Their are 3 areas under the main drive gear that the spin pawl can grab onto called Bosses. Hay I ain't makin this up. When the spin pawl catches a boss it locks into place and brangs that puppy to life. Well what goes wrong you may ask? Over time the spin pawl gets smashed down and won't catch a boss. Their will be no spin action. If the clutch is good,no sign of oil leaking out any seals and the main drive gear has all it's splines(yes I have seen it get smooth as a baby's bvtt) Then I suspect you need to remove the tranny, remove the clutch. Put that tranny in a vice. Remove the cover and use snap ring pliers to remove the main drive gear retainer. Gently lift up the main drive gear and inspect the spin pawl. If it is bad it will look like it has been smashed down which it has. LOL
