My Inglis by Whirlpool washer doesnt spin. Its a Direct drive unit so Im guessing that the clutch is bad?

Whirlpool lxr7144eq1 why did my washer quit agitating and spinning what would cause this ?

Check the motor coupling to make sure it isn't broken.
And also check to see if something has clogged the water pump

Whirlpool dryer WED5530SQ0, heats but does not run

So,. basically your drum doesnt turn. SO your getting heat still even though the drum isnt turning. Is this right? Sounds strange??? Do you hear any humming noise when you push the start button? I need to know a little more about the problem because im kinda confused as how you decribed the problem. Iv never seen a dryer heat but the drum not spinning. especially your model dryer. Its electric heat right? because if the drum doesnt spin, maybe your motor is bad. and if your motor is bad, then your heating element wont heat up because the centrifical switch in the motor is not switching to complete the circuit to the heating element. So this is why im confused when you said" Dryer heats when knob turned but when "push button" pressed, drum doesnt run." Because your belt wraps around the motor pully and the motor is what makes the drum turn. Like i said, i never seen this model dryer heat with out the motor operating. So if you can give me some more info, ill do my best to help you out....Thanks!!!!

Whirlpool washing machine model number LXR7144EQ1...machine will run, but agitator will not engage.

Had a similar problem. What you need are new "dogs" inside the agitator cone. "Agitator Repair Kit"
Parts found here:
Guarantee this will fix the agitator not spinning/working, unless the entire spindle isn't going back and forth.
I ordered this kit from these good folk and it arrived in 3 days.
All you need to replace these parts is a 7/16" socket with a 6" or longer extension & socket driver.
10 minutes, you can do this!
Hvae fun!

Whirlpool top loader model 3LS C8255EQ1

if the motor is running during the time its supposd to be agitating and the motor is running during the time its supposed to be spinning. then you need to replace the motor coupling. it connects the motor to the transmission it is broken and the is no connection anymore. the motor coupling is only about 10 bucks.
