Question about Whirlpool LSR5132PQ Top Load Washer

2 Answers

Whirlpool basic top loader

My daughter was testing fuses while the washer was running, and accidentally turned off the fuse in mid-cycle. Now it doesn't react. It's full of water, and makes no sound, no sign that it's getting electricity. I've tried plugging it into another outlet but it made no difference. I need help, as it's full of water, not to mention clothes.

    She was testing fuses at the fuse box, to turn off electricity so she could hook up a lamp in another room. It had nothing to do with the washer. I wasn't home when it happened, so I'm not absolutely sure how it all came about. But my washer seems as good as dead, stopped just before the rinse cycle. How can I drain it?

    As I said in my first description, I already tried another outlet, that I know works, and there was no change. All my lighting and other appliances all work fine, and so does the outlet that my washer is currently plugged into. That was the first thing I tried.

    you need to more specif on what she was testing and how as there are no fuses in this machine and why was she testing in the first place plug a light in the out let where the washer is see if it lights then check the breaker if it don't make sure the lid is closed if all that's ok turn it back to wash like it is and tell me if it washes

Ok got ya now hon you may have a bad lid switch nothing to do with power On the control panel locate the two phillips screws at the back or front of the control panel at the bottom where the panel meets the base .Back them out far as you can .Pull the control panel forward and tilt it back(im assuming you've unplugged the washer first) you will see a connector that goes to the lid switch unplug it now on the part of the connector that goes up to the control panel put a piece of wire from one terminal to the other to jump the connection then pull the knob out if it works then replace the lid switch

Whirlpool washing machine style master #907675 just stop working in the middle of the wash cycle and won't start again.


Susan, First make sure there is still power to the outlet washer is pluged into, may have tripped the breaker/fuse. Could be something as simple as a loose wire/plug, lid switch to something worse like control board. Have a good Tech. diagnose and estimate repair. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

I pressed the pause button to add a garment to my Whirlpool frontload washer. After doing so, I pressed the hold to start button, but the washer would not restart the cycle.


Switch the power off from the power outlet for a few minutes , then switch on and reset the wash cycle . Front loaders are not designed to add clothes mid wash.

I bought the Whirlpool Duet to replace my old standard washer & dryer and I find that the wash time is longer than the old washer. Even the quick wash takes about 1 hour. Am I doing something wrong...


I assume from your comment that your old washer was a top loader. Yes, front loading machines typically have longer cycle times than top loaders. There are several contibuting factors... first of all, the wash action of a front load is to oscillate the drum back and forth as well as provide a slow tumbling motion whereas a top loader w/ agitator or impeller has a more aggressive action. The more aggressive action rolls and tumbles your clothes more often and therefore cleans faster. Also, because front loaders spin very fast (up to twice as fast as top loaders) to reduce the amount of moisture left in the clothes, they need to have balanced loads. They accomplish this by testing and rebalancing your load several times during each cycle before beginning to spin.

That was a long answer to your question- no, you are not doing anything wrong.

Good luck.

My kenmore top loader 80 series wont start. I traced power to a black cylinder next to motor. i get nothing, no water fill or motor action in any cycle.


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.



Also see the following Whirlpool / Kenmore service manual for top load, direct drive washers.

It has troubleshooting and component testing procedures.

Push down on lid. You may have a bad lid switch. Start machine and press the switch down with something like a screwdriver and see if the motor runs.
