Hello,

I have been browsing here for about an hour and have successfully narrowed one problem down to an extremely busted and stretched motor coupler. Thank you! Thank you Thank you!

Now my other question is this. Does my model (Whirlpool LLR9245BQ1) have direct drive suspension pads (repair clinic calls them "tub wear pads")? (I have not disassembled it that far yet) and how would I go about accessing them and replacing them? I did not find any other thread on this topic, but if you have already discussed it, please guide me to that area.

Thank you in advance....

I assume you are referring to the 3 brown slide pads that go under the triangle slide plate under the tub??  Under the tub there will be a triangle plate with  3 slide pads, under this on the frame will be 3 brown pads this plate slides on, you would have to carefully lift the white plate at the corners to see the brown pads on the frame. These have 2 prongs that pop into 2 holes on the frame.

I see them now, thank you! Perhaps you could tell me how I would know if I needed to replace them. They do not look cracked or broken, maybe a little worn down. I am hoping that my bad spinning noise an noisy agitation was due to the broken motor coupler, but wanted to cover all my bases, and get all the parts at once.

Thanks again.:tinkerbell:

A cracked coupler will make your washer sound like  a jack hammer.  However if the brown pads are worn down go ahead and change them as they are so inexpensive.

Jackhammer! LOL! That is exactly what it sounded like. I have 5 children, and yesterday was washday. On the first load of the day, the coupler broke. What a horrid sound. After I found the solution on this site, I opened the machine and saw a broken rubber ring, and a lot of rubber shavings. Upon separating the motor and transmission, half of the coupler fell out in three pieces! I had to pry the other part off, and it was missing teeth also (or cogs or whatever they are called). I had let my 12 yo do his laundry last time, and he had loaded it so full that it overflowed. Noting on this site that the cause of broken couplers is overloading, I had viable evidence to show my son that he should not overload it! I will sheepishly admit that in my wanting to speed up laundry I too have overloaded it. No more though! :fingerwag:

Thanks again for all your help!

You are quite welcome, however I would imagine most of the damage to the coupler system was already done, and the 50 LB load in the 18 LB washer just finished it off!!   Do not blame the child to much but do not tell him either!!  LOL :P

Thanks to the instructions on this site I did successfully install my coupler, and my machine is running! Yeah! Also I notice it is agitiating quieter than it has for a long time. Added bonus.

Thank you again!  :D

We just lay the washer over with the case off, and carefully lift the  3 corners of the triangle slide plate  under the tub to see if the 3 brown slide tabs are in place or broken.  If they need to be replaced just lift up on the corners of the slide plate and pop the brown slides right into place.

Thanks received your respose. Just to make sure are you suggesting to lay washr on the side after taking off all cabinet  side panels? Please cofirm. What about removing 3 springs , which holds the tub and hose connecting the tub bottom and check for white triangle plate position by lifting tub up. please send me your comment.

I have sent you picture of final adjustment of the white plate. Does it look OK ? Also would you tell me what is the function of tube attached to the frame? It has inside nail like pin with the hole at the pointed end. There are 3 on each side of triangle frame. Please send me your response.

Yes, the 3 brown pads are under the triangle plate at each corner.  You could most likely just lift the corners of the triangle plate while the washer is up right with the case off and take a look at the brown pads and replace them if needed, just lift carefully with a large screwdriver or something, but do not damage the white slides on the triangle plate.  It is possible the slide plate is just out wack and needs to be put back into position inside of the 3 brown pads.  The 3 plastic things with the pins were shipping pins and the plastic cups cought the pins when shipping strap was removed.  These can be removed and discarded.

Thanks for your help in plate alingment. Wsher spin without abnormal noise.

Now, I  am faced with a  new problem.   I have a new motor but washer shuts down  and smells in the middle of wash or spin cycle and I smell heated  motor.. What should I look for and what is the cause of this problem.  I do i check faulty component.
