Question about Whirlpool LSQ8000 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

WHIRLPOOL TOP LOADER 3RLSQ8000

THE MOTOR APPEARS TO BE WORKING BUT THE DRUM DOES NOT SPIN.

THE WASHER FILLS UP WITH WATER BUT THE DRUM DOES NOT AGITATE AND DOES NOT SPIN IF SELECTED.

ALL I CAN HEAR IS THE MOTOR WHICH SOUNDS AS IF IT IS WORKING ALTHOUGH A LITTLE CRANKY!!

NOT SURE WHAT THE PROBLEM COULD BE?

ANY IDEAS MOST APPRECIATED.

THANKS

PAUL

Whirlpool top loader washer will not spin


Could be one of several different things depending on the age and model. If its less than 10 years old and is a top load washer its probably a motor coupling (connects the motor to the transmission kinda like a belt) or lid switch. If the water is draining out but the washer is not spinning its probably the motor coupling. If it still has water in it and won't spin, its probably the lid switch. If your washer is a front loader there could be several things going on. Hope that helps.

Washer fills with water then stops, will not spin or drain water. There doesn't appear to be a plumbing issue.


if it's running (making noise) but not moving it's the coupling between the motor and trans$13.00 part if it is just sitting there quiet it's probly the lid switch is broken this only applies to top loaders

Washer motor runs, but the drum does not spin on the spin cycle


It is most probably the motor coupling if you have a Whirlpool top loader.

Top Loader LAT9406AAE s/n 23257742UQ Will not operate in any mode


if the washer will not fill I would change the water inlet valve. this could be the problem for all other issues. if the machine has no water in it, likely the timer will not advance to wash.

Whirlpool washing machine (model LLR 9245 B) does not work


If it's a top loader, the coupler is broken. It's located between the motor and the gearcase. If you put it in spin and hear the motor run, this is your problem. It drains because the pump is mounted on the opposite side of the coupler and will be un-affected

Make sure the lid switch is making good contact throughout the spin cycle.
