My 6 year old washer started making  banging noises last week , like sneakers were in it,  now it will not spin.  The switch is ok the belt is ok it will agitate and the motor is running and it will drain.  when I  tilt it back I can see something spinning on the bottom of the plastic tub, a silver 6 inch disk, and I found out it gets real hot.  I took off the agitator and found a lot of metal file-lings.  Also I can not spin the tub by hand.  Any Ideas?   had the model number wrong it is LXR9245EQ2

That model number does not come up , is this a top loader or front loader, the top loading washers made by Whirlpool that are 6 years old do not have belts.  Is this washer in the USA?

The metal savings tell me most likely problem is a stripped out basket drive block.

When you took the agitator off is the tube that is about 1" around sticking up above the top of the aluminum drive block? If so then you have a stripped out drive block.

I'm not sure it looks like about 3 inches of steel tube with groves in it, then an inch or so of solid tube then a little white plastic spacer with two posts on it one ontop one on the bottom.  then a possibly aluminium wider tube with two square posts on top. Then a wider piece of metal tube with threads then the big flat nut.  Also through the holes in the bottom  of the tub I see white plastic with groves ,like a fan, against the metal tub.

LXR is correct, your original model number was not valid and this does not have a belt, is a direct drive, the black foam piece you see is a noise surpressor for the clutch.

So the tube with the two square post on top is sticking out above the top of the large part that the big flat nut is on?

Then a wider piece of metal tube with threads then the big flat nut. Also through the holes in the bottom of the tub I see white plastic with groves ,like a fan, against the metal tub.



If so then the drive block has stipped out letting the tub drop down about 1-2" and now the spin basket/filter is rubbing against the bottom of the outer tub.

I have the same problem. Must I take the entire outer tub out (and the whole machine apart) to replace the drive-block? Can I simply replace the block by opening the lid?

 

Regards

We  have no idea who we are replying to here since new posters need to start a new topic so as to get a new discussion going.  Who is asking about what brand and model of washer and  what exactly is your washer doing and what are you wanting to repair on this wsher.

Looking back thru this thread I assume you are replacing your drive block??  Get the console loose and flip it over the back panel, remove the case, remove the splash guard on top of the tub and remove the agitator.  Use the spanner wrench to remove the lock nut, wack this with a hammer to the left.  When the nut is off lift the spin basket out of the washer.  Remove the worn drive block and install the new one by tapping it down flush with the top of the spin tube making sure the 2 ears on the spin tube are straight, if not straighten them with plyers, and be sure the 2 tabs are in the 2 notches in the drive block.   Sit the spin basket back onto the drive block and install the lock nut, getting it as tight as you can.  Then reinstall the rest in reverse...;)
