Question about Whirlpool LSR5132PQ Top Load Washer
Most likely you have a broken motor coupling part number 285753A and it's around 20 dollars.unplug the washer.on the top console there are two phillips screws that have to be removed,on whirlpool washers they have them in the rear one on each side,remove them and flip the console up.with a screw driver pop the two metal clips,put the screw driver in the hole and on top of the clip and push back to the wall,the clip will pop out,next you'll see a wire connector to the left of the right clip,unplug that,this is the lid switch wires.open the lid,grab the frame and lift up and pull back,remove the frame of the washer,on the bottom you'll see the pump,with a screw driver remove the clips and slide the pump off the shaft.then remove the two screws and pop the two clips off the motor and pull out the motor.on the back of the motor you'll see the coupling.most likely the three arms will be broke off,the other side of the coupling will be on the transmission.remove that part and the rubber piece.next tap on the new coupling on the motor shaft the other part on the tranny shaft.slide the rubber piece on the tranny part of the coupling and then line up the motor coupling so it fits into the rubber and both pieces are interlocked in the rubber.before you do this check the rubber pieces on the corners of the motor,if any are missing pull it off the frame and slide it back on the motor or you'll never get it back together,slide the motor back on and put the washer back together.the coupling breaks from overloading the washer.happy new year
