Whirlpool washer won't change cycles
Posted 31 March 2005 - 05:18 PM
I have a Whirlpool washer model LST7233AQ0. We bought it about 10 years ago.
The washer will fill and run (agitate) but will not switch into the rinse or spin cycle(s).
The wash action will continue until the timer reaches the "off" position at which time the washer will shut off. The timer indicator progresses through the whole process.
If I turn the control knob to the appropriate point the washer will rinse and/or spin. But I must do it - the washer will not switch into these cycyles automatically.
I have read many of the articles on this site and found them very helpful. I have already replaced the drive coupling even though the old one looked aged but not defective. I had the silly thing apart anyway, so I went ahead with the replacement
Any help on this?

Yes, the thing agitates the whole way through.
Is there nothing else to do but replace the timer? Is that a difficult thing?
The part seems pretty expensive. :(

Piece of pie, comrade! A single mug on the SUDS-o-meter.
Can't think of anything else it would be. And, if you buy timer here, you can return it for a refund if that doesn't fix it.
The part seems pretty expensive.
Compared to what? If you do the repair yourself, you save $149 in labor! :)

Thanks for the replies and the help.
Well heck, I did the drive coupling and that was at least one more mug of difficulty.
hmm....is the link to the timer above the timer I need ?

It will ship today and take 3-5 business days.
Now, if I can ask a further question. How do you get the darn thing off?

The timer arrived yesterday. I installed it this morning and so far so good.
Thanks Appliance Guru(s).
I really appreciate the help.
