Try and help it to spin in the spin mode.. if it moves.. sounds like a clutch problem ..IF NOT... you may have something like nail, screw ect... binding the spin tub from moving.. get a flash lite do some close checking inside the spin tub

Sounds like the brake liner could be broken. When the machine starts to spin, the motor turns in the opposite direction to the wash cycle and causes the bowl to lift off the brake liner and the bowl then spins freely. Either the riser cam is worn/broken or the brake liner is broken. This is quite involved and you may have to call in a tech.

Sounds like a sticky brake assy. This type of brake is very tricky and should be checked be a service technician

It's possible to do it yourself but not recommended because of the 200 lb. pressure spring. Hope the diagram will help.

Same problem (but without any smell). You should try to reset the two computer boards in the washer. You do this by 1) unplugging machine and wait for 30 secs; 2) plug in machine; and 3) open and fully close the lid at least 5 times. This resets computer boards, which can get messed up by power surges, etc.

Whirlpool LSR8233eq top load washer won't spin most of time


Hi, It sounds like your spin basket drive is going bad. Even tho you cleaned the brake, the pads get worn down enough they will not grab. The only other thing I can think of is the bloch that sits on top the basket drive shaft and lockes the inner tub. Sounds like you have done/checked everything else.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

check your lid switch, it can be bypassed until you can get a new one. Just be aware that the machine will agitate and spin with the lid up. To open the top use a putty knife or butter knife at the joint of the top and bottom at the front corners to push the catch in while lifting the top. On an older machine the lid switch goes bad, another thing is the rubber drive part between the motor and the transmission, but the machine probably wouldn't agitate either.

Could I please get a follow-up to this previous issue? I just had one more question, posted on the 30th of October. Thank you!


ok i might have to put this in a 2 part solution it might not be big enough to fit here
i hope this helped you in your washer it still is cheaper to repair than to replace
your washer blew out its thrust bearing which is called the brake
while you have the washer open grease the bearings and oil the motor you can get these same things and intstructions for this to do

this is the thrust bearing kit which you will need the instructions i will post the link and a copy of the pic
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=3728465&pn_=12500036
this is the link to the thrust bearing kit you need to replace to run dryer correctly
