I have a Whirlpool #LSR7233DQ1 that is 12 years old. It's been repaired twice before and needs repairing again. Believe me, I know I've gotten my money's worth from this machine, but lately I don't believe my clothes are getting clean enough and just yesterday the agitator stopped agitating. I would like to get a new machine that uses less water, is less wear and tear on my clothes, large capacity (I don't know the capacity of the washer I have now) energy efficient, and not going to be a major service headache. I have a family of 5 and do laundry everyday, 3 or 4 loads per day, my water supply is well water, and my laundry area is in the basement. I wash blankets, comforters, jackets, as well as fine washables, and everyday items: jeans, towels & sheets, etc.. After reading washer reviews for about 2 hours, there doesn't seem to be a washer out there that doesn't have more issues than I'd like to deal with. Should I repair the machine I have, again? Do any of you have recommendations in this matter?
Thank you, swt1692
P.S. I entered the incorrect Product # because you don't have my model listed; I guess it's too old.

Stay away from a Calyspo, Neptune, Elite. These are problem machines. I would also stay away from any of them that have a digital readout. Water and that type of electronics do not mix. I have a whirlpool top loader that has a dial. It's over 13 years old. I have replaced a pump twice and repaired the lid switch. Simple fix and the cost was small. Most people have trouble with washers due to overloading them. I never overload mine inso it has given me good service.They still make these machines under different names like maytag, roper and kenmore which are owned by whirlpool. Front loaders leak and give problems in a couple of years.
I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old man who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. Therefore the washer ID doesn't mean
anything to me. I believe you have a bad lid switch. If you google clothes washer repair, you will be amazed at the amount of information there. There are a couple of you tube videos which give detailed, step by step instructions on opening the washer, finding the problem and fixing it. I hope this helps you.
The Kenmore Oasis is made by Whirlpool for Sears. It is the same as the Whirlpool Cabrio. The Cabrio and the Oasis had a problem with the computer board. Whirlpool has been replacing the computer boards under a recall(mine was replaced recently). But I believe it is the model with no agitator in it. The one your talking about I believe is the one with the agitator. Whirlpool makes a good product. I would stay away from Maytag. Besides the recall problem I have had mine for over 2 years and it has worked fine. But I did get the extended warranty with it due to all the sensors and computer board can make repairs expensive.I have not had to use the extended warranty yet. My previous Kenmore washer was 12 years old and stopped working due to a rat chewed thru all the wiring and hoses. It would have cost me more to repair than what it was worth so I purchased the Cabrio.
It is a rotor position sensor code. The control is no longer recieving a signal from the motor. It can be a failed sensor or control, but usually it is a bad connection where the wires plug on to the sensor. If the machine is less than a year old, it will be repaired in warranty. If not, post back and I will try to walk you through the repair if you want to try it.
