    I am not able to find any adjustments on the springs. Could it be the suspension pads and or the tub pads have worn enough to cause it to tilt?

    Thanks,

Why does the washer basket tilt to the side


Had a similar problem, this might be the solution.

Unplug the washer, remove the two screws that hold the control panel to the top. Tilt the panel back, remove the plug going to the top and the two clips that secure the back to the case. Tip the case forward to release it from the front edge of the bottom frame and set it aside. From the front, you should see two springs attaching the bottom of the tub to the lower frame. The tub end of the spring is attached to a bracket that is screwed into the tub. In my case, the screw holding the bracket to the tub had vibrated loose, causing the centering effect to be lost. There is a third spring in the back if those two are intact.

Replace the bracket and screw, and you should be back in business. Best of all, it only takes time.

Inner tub does not sit corrects and water is leaking bad when run


There is 6 springs? And all of them are on right? Sounds like one of the back springs came off or broke. You should be able to shake the whole thing around and it should center up. Take the top of the washer off. Remove the cover on the control panel then unplug the wire harness and pull the fill switch hose off of the switch. There is two screws holding the top on at the side panels in the front. then lift it up and slide it forward to release the back hinges. Then you should be able to see the back ones.

Whirlpool lsr7233eq0. The machine is level but


Grab back of washer on both sides and tip towards you and drop gently back. This will level the back legs which are self adjusting. Sometimes they stick You may have to pry with a screwdriver down towards floor to free them if this is the case.

Washer is leaking water at the bottom. Can this be repaired?


Have you checked the drain pump? These washers are notorious for developing leaks with the pump. To inspect thoroughly, you will need to remove the exterior case of the washer. Just follow these steps:

1. Unplug washing machine.
2. Remove console. This can be accomplished in one of two ways depending on which type of console you have.
a. If the console has removable end caps, the caps lift off by prying on the top from the back of the washer. The cap will pull off towards you as you are facing the unit from the front of the washer. There will be a screw under each end cap that you will need to remove.
b. If the console does not have removable end caps, you will need to slide a putty knife under the front corner of each side and push in while lifting up. There is a retaining clip under each side that has to be released.
3. Once the console has been released it will lift up and fold back over the back of the washer in its resting position. Use care not to stress the small plastic hinges that hold it on. They can break easily.
4. Under the console will be two large brass colored clips. Take a large flat blade screwdriver and place it in the groove of the clip on the washer top. With the screwdriver firmly in the groove, push away from you towards the back of the washer. This will release the clips.
5. Disconnect the lid switch connector plug. This is the white colored plug on the washer top under the console.
6. Remove the washer casing. Open the lid of the washer. Using one hand, grip under the front rim of the washer opening. Do not grab the wash tub, just the casing. Tilt the washer case from the back first towards you, slide forward slightly, and then lift up. The entire case comes off exposing the wash tub and components.

Locate the water pump. It is a small plastic pump with two hoses connected to it, directly under the front of the wash tub. The pumps can develop small cracks and begin to leak. If this is the case, the pumps are not serviceable and must be replaced.

Check the tub seal. The seal in the center of the wash tub. If the seal develops leaks, you will notice water track marks on the transmission and a puddle under the center of the wash tub.

Check the the for cracks. Although it is not common, I have seen stress cracks develop on the exterior wash tub, causing leaks. The tub will have to replaced if this is the case.

Check the air dome hose to make sure it is still attached and not leaking. It is a small plastic hose that runs from the pressure switch in the console to the lower right hand side of the wash tub. If the hose comes loose of develops leaks, the washer will begin to leak as it fills (usually about 1/3 of the way full).

To reinstall the case, follow these steps:

1. Re-install washer case. With the lid of the washer open, place grasp case under front rim and place it on the washer frame. While looking down through the washer lid opening, make sure the front lip of the case is placed UNDER the washer frame and rocked back onto the frame to ensure that the small cleats on the frame fit into the slotted grooves on the washer case base. If you do not get the case seated correctly it will rattle and vibrate while the washer is in operation.
2. Make the back of the washer fits into the washer casing on each side and reinsert the brass clips. Place the clip into the slot on the back of the washer first, and then forcefully push it into the opening on top of the washer. It will snap back into to place.
3. REINSTALL LID SWITCH CONNECTOR. It is easy to forget. If you do not reconnect it, the washer will not work correctly.
4. Reinstall console.

NOTE: Run some water in the tub about 1/3 of the way full BEFORE you remove the exterior washer case. That way you can check for any leaks with water in the tub. Let me know what you fins. I hope this helps you.

My Whirlpool washer (model LSR8233EQ0)


yes it is ,yes you can .You need a spin basket tub block and nut and a whirlpool tub wrench.You can get that at the appliance store when you buy the tub block .On the control panel locate the 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 .Next you will see two gold clips (notice how they go) pop them out with a screw driver .Tilt the washer body back toward you standing at the front and walk backwards with it to remove it .Then unsnap the splash ring from the outer tub and remove it.Pull the rinse cup from the agitator under that you will see a cap remove it .Then you will need a 7/16 inch wrench with a long extension to remove the agitator bolt and pull the agitator.then you will see a spanner nut made of aluminum that's where the wrench comes in remove that nut and pull the spin tub under that will be the tub block tap it off the spin tube and slide the new one on .Replace the spin tub and nut using the spanner wrench tighten the nut tight as you can by hand then hit the wrench handle with a hammer to get it tighter.Then reverse the procedure to reassemble.When you replace the body of the washer look down through the lid opening the front of the washer body goes under the base and the sides go on top along the edges. print theese instructions its really not that hard that will fix it

Just moved. New washer leaks water and appears tub is off center


CHECK THE BALANCE SPRING LOCATED (INSIDE LEFT REAR OF MACHINE). IF SPRING IS OFF IT CAN CAUSE THE TUB TO TILT TOWARD THE FRONT AND THE TUB FILL HOOD WILL NOT BE OVER THE TUB DURING FILLING OR THE TUB WILL BE ERATIC DURING THE SPIN WHEN RINSE WATER IS SPAYING IN CAUSE ING THE WATER TO MISS THE TUB AND SPRAY OUTSIDE. THIS IS COMMON IF THE UNIT HAS BEEN MOVED OR PLACED ON IT'S SIDE OR CARRIED AT EXTREME ANGLE.
