Question about Whirlpool LSQ8000 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Whirlpool LSQ8000 Top Loader

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

    Remove the 2 screws on the front or back of the endcaps on the sides of the control panel, ( front or back depending on design). The control panel will come forward then flip up. Next use a screwdriver to pop out the spring clamps that hold the cabinet onto the frame. They are about 3/4 of an inch wide and about 3 inches from each side. Disconnect the lid switch. Now you can tilt the cabinet away from the back of the machine, while tilting the bottom front of the cabinet will slide out and the cabinet can be set aside. now you will have access to the motor etc. Release the clamps holding the pump onto the motor. Now you should see two screws that hold the motor clamps, one above and one below the motor shaft, remove those. Use a flat blade screwdriver to pop off the clamps holding the motor. pull motor out to expose coupling. Make sure to use part # 285753A. repair sould take 10 minutes.

Whirlpool top loader washer not agitating


Hi, Do you know if the lower half of the agitator is working? THere is a dog kit that might need replaced in the agitator to get the top half to work. If neither half agitates, there is probably a transmission issue. Start the washer with no laundry in it and see if either sections of the agitator work.
I hope this helps you.
