    excellent answer! I replaced the coupling and the washer worked fine again!

    unfortunately, after a few loads of laundry, I have a new problem. Now, the washer fills with water, and then nothing. I try all cycles, nothing happens. I'm concerned I just lost the motor. Is there a way to check that, or are there other things I should check? After doing the first repair I'm not at all afraid to take this thing apart.

    Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

If you hear the motor running then it is most likely the direct drive coupling between the motor and transmission. part #285753 you can see it from under the machine.whirlpool lsr8233jqo - will not spin - 477922b.jpg f3941f5.jpg

    check the plug on the side of the motor. it will sometimes work loose if it was not plugged in correctly.
     let me know if what you find.

Whirlpool heavy duty super capacity plus washer will not agitate or spin. I replaced the agitator dogs but still have the same problem, is this a transmission issue?


Your model may have a flexible (break able) drive component between the motor and the transmission. Check that, it is a pretty easy replacement.

Washer will not spin or agitate. Pump works.


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.

First, see the following Whirlpool Kenmore installation and service manual for top load, direct drive washers.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

If it drains and you can hear the motor trying to turn the transmission for the agitate mode, the obvious first answer is the Motor coupler. I'd replace it just to be sure.

If it's not the Coupler, the problem points to the transmission itself.

There are only two components of the gearcase that are used for both agitating and spinning.

One is the Agitator shaft which drives the agitator and holds the spin pinion that drives the clutch for spinning.

The other is the main "Bottom and pinion gearcase" itself.

Please see the following Whirlpool parts list for commercial top load direct drive washers although the consumer models use the same transmission parts.

The pump is coupled to a motor that runs it. The pump is ok if it is not leaking. You need to check the signal to the motor to turn on. It all comes from the timer switch unit. The coupling probably should be relpaced if the pump is really bad. Sounds like the drive motor for the tub, not the pump, or the switch unit.
