Question about Whirlpool LSQ8000 Top Load Washer
My washer spins out when it wants too. At first I thought the coupler might be bad but when I looked, they were like new. Sometimes to get the thing to spin I have to turn the basket. Usually that will do it. Basket drive? Are they hard to replace?
John, it's possible that it could be the basket drive. It sounds more like the clutch assy. Take the agitator off and look at the drive block. The two ears from the basket drive should be tight into the drive block, I will attach a picture of how it should look. If that looks ok, then I would suspect the clutch. They are not hard jobs, either one of them.
