Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a Whirlpool Model# LSQ7030LQ0 washing machine. The washer is making a lot of noise and the agititator seems loose and is flopping around as it turns. If I grab on to the agitator I can stop it from turning until something catches and it spins out of my hands.

This "MAY" be an easy fix,

I have seen the main bolt that fixes the agitator to the drive shaft come loose.

If you can imagine the agitator as a cone, the top point of the agitator is a cap that should pull or clip off. If so, using a long extention shaft and a socket set, you should be able to tighten up the bolt.

Good luck and post back results

It sounds like basket support failure. How old is the machine? They usually **** at around 5 to 6 years. Unless you are going to fix it yourself or it's under extended warranty, junk it.

The repair requires a complete teardown of the washer. two to six hours labor depending on tech skill level.

Whining noise, only in rinse and spin cycle, sounds awful.


Check the pump to make sure there isn't something stuck in it.
