Whirlpool Top Load washing machine no spin cycle

Jaimie This is a direct drive unit. No belt involved in this unit. I thought that this part was clear. The motor is operating fine. No spin is my current diliema.
I changed the clutch and I have new invigorated agitation but no spin cycle in any switch position. This is not a kenmore but a whirlpool top load direct drive unit

    This has been posted under Premium assistance. I don't know if ths question is [posted as such. I thought I would make a comment of this as I have been solicited to get premium assistance "TWICE". The communication seems to leave a bit of desire to be complete. I had hoped someonw would direct me further than a reference to a repair page. I only want to fix this washer for a gal with a sick father and not doing so well herself. The spin cycyle worked be for about 18 months storage and the recently replaced of the clutch.disc.
    Motor works fine, agitates well and I have no spin cycle in any program position.

My machine is not spinning what may be the problem


depends on what brand and type of unit... is this a front loader a top loader and what brand.. is it direct drive or belt driven.... if it is belt driven could be a bad belt or pulley...if it is direct drive such as a top load whirlpool ,kenmore,roper, you could have a bad drive coupling which is located between the motor and transmission under unit.... if this is a front loader there are numerous items it could be example a motor controller board, main pcb board.
if everything is working but the spin mode and this is a top loader unit may want to check the lid swich that will cause the unit to not spin.... hope this helps kinda a vague description of your probelm....good luck and give me a vote i need them....

Kenmore model # 110.244222300, Won't automatically complete wash


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.

Following is a Whirlpool / Kenmore service manual for top load, direct drive washers.

Initial thoughts are that the Timer is worn / broken.

Here is a description of how to gain access to the console on these washers where you may be able to test the timer. (See the Whirlpool service manual for testing)

No wash cycle or spin cycle. it will drain the water ok but no wash or spin.


After taking apart my machine I discovered a broken part called the Motor Coupling. This part is what makes the basket turn from the motor. I had to completey take apart the machine. The part is located between the motor and the transmission. This machine is not belt driven. It is called a direct drive. good luck

Pump works. Spins when empty/no load in tub. clutch slips when loaded


If the drive belt is slipping during the agitate and both spin cycles for loaded conditions, I suspect that the drive belt is excessively worn. If it slipped only during a loaded spin cycle, I would have suspected that the sliding motor mount is gummed up and not moving to a belt tighten position during the start of a spin cycle. Since the unit drains with no problem for loaded and unloaded conditions, the pump belt should be OK. Replace the drive belt and clean the dust, gunk, detergent, etc, out of the sliding mount to make sure that it tightens properly when a loaded spin cycle starts. Note that on most models, the drive belt is designed to slip when spin cycles first engage, and they will continue to slip until after the drum has accelerated.

Have whirlpool LSR7233B top load washer. It fills and agaites but will not drain all the way and spins slowly on slowly on spin cycle


THE BELT THAT DRIVES THE DRUM MIGHT BE WORN, THE BELT IS NOT UNDER A LOT OF STRAIN WHEN WASHING AND MAY WORK FINE BUT WHEN IT GOES INTO THE SPIN CYCLE THE WEIGHT OF THE CLOTHES AND THE WATER WILL CAUSE THE BELT TO SLIP . I WOULD START THERE FIRST

Agitator doesn't spin during wash cycle


If The washer won't agitate
Check to make sure no clothing got wrapped around the agitator. Check the lid switch, timer, and drive belt, other potential causes, such as a bad transmission or bad agitate/spin solenoid, but they are much more involved.
if the washer won't spin, the lid switch, timer, drive belt, transmission, or agitate/spin solenoid could be the cause here as well. Sometimes if the load is unbalanced or too heavy, the washer won't spin. Take some of the clothes out and try the spin cycle again with a lighter load.

Here are the steps to replace the agitator.
1: Take the fabric softener dispenser off and pry off the agitator lid.
2: Use a socket wrench with an extension bar to remove the stud and seal.
3: Remove the agitator top and bottom.
4: Check the agitator clutch assembly (located in the agitator top) for excessive wear.
5: To replace, just reverse the directions.

Whirlpool Washer LSR7233BQ2 Buzzes/Humms during spin cycle...no movement


No belt on your machine. Sounds like motor coupler that joins motor and transmission is broken. Very inexpensive part but a few steps involved in getting machine disassembled Look up YouTube video on replacing motor coupler on Whirlpool washer.
