Question about Whirlpool LSR5132PQ Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Loud noise, then not so loud, but now electrical burning smell and little draining

At first my washing machine just started out by making a very loud "thumping" noise at the end of every spin cycle, and it just go progressively louder. Now, the noise isnt quite as bad, however, the water is not completely draining from my machine, and there is a slight burning smell at the end of the spin cycle. it seems to me that the spin cycle it self isnt causing the noise, but when the cycle has ended and the machine's drive has disengaged; thats when the noise really gets bad.

Please help!! I am enlisted Navy, so $ is always tight, so just buying a new machine is out of the question...Im really hoping this is just something I can repair on my own.

Thanks very much for your time,
Tony I have a whirlpool washer, less than a year old. I am not sure if it is normal or if there is a problem. When the machine is turned on, for the first few minutes, the cycle makes a loud noise and than the noise level goes down. Is it normal?

The basket drive and the drive block will need replacing. The nut that holds the basket to the drive block may have come loose causing the drive block to 'jump' over and damage the tabs on the basket drive that causes the thumping as the spin cycle ends. To repair, you will need to purchase a basket drive and drive block. The agitator, balance ring, basket and transmission, will have to be removed in order to replace the basket drive. If less than 3ys old, consider contacting whirlpool for possible warranty concession.

Washer is making a loud noise when its trying to rinse


you will have to open up the panel to check where the smell comes from. It could be on the motor which may cause also a loud noise or from the electrical, loose connection or bad relay may cause a noise of a different kind.

Maytag washer makes loud grinding noise during the spin cycle


if it's making a noise then either your drain pump bearing is going out or your thrust bearing is going out (assuming the noise happens in both spin and wash). Tip the washer backwards so that you can get underneath of it. Take the belt off and spin the pump pulley on the right side. This should spin effortlessly.

The middle pulley is the trustbearing pulley. Spin this--- one direction it should have a little bit of resistance--- the other should have more resistance

Loud noise and smell


It would help to know the brand and model number of the washer. If it has a belt that also runs the pump, something may have gotten into the pump during drain and locked the pump causing the belt to slip.
