Good Evening Ladies and Gents,

 

I've got a Whirlpool washer that won't spin during the spin cycle.

 

I have read the great info here and removed the cabinet, pump and motor expecting to find a bad coupler. Please see the attached pic. It seems ok, no?

 

So, now what?

 

Here are the model and serial:

 

LXR6232EQO

CH2811998

 

Many thanks!

 

-Jeff (formerly tamfflcommissioner)

Looks like that may not be your problem, but you should still change it. looks a little rough. Your problem may be in the spin clutch. Look at the inside of the washer machine cabinet and see if there is an oil ring slung around the case towards the bottom. The transmission seals leak sometimes and fills the clutch with oil and wont let it spin.

How's the Lid Switch ?

Dose the Washer Motor make any noise during Spin ?

Does the Timer Motor advance during Spin ?

I agree with Brother Reginald that the lid switch is the prime suspect.  There's a video at the link he posted for you that shows you how to test and replace it.  More detailed information in my seminal tome on diagnosing spin and agitate problems in these machines:  http://fixitnow.com/...t-drive-washer/

Lid switch has continuity when lid is closed.

 

So I did what you suggested: 

 

Jumpered the lid switch harness and put her in spin

 

Machine ran in spin and disc was spinning

 

So I did what you suggested: 

 

Look for trouble in the clutch by using the unsanctioned hand test.

 

I could stopped it with my pinky

 

So I did what you suggested: 

 

And this is what I found:

 

So, is THIS the problem?Attached File  photo.JPG   97.13KB   21 downloads

Does it drain without spinning or does it go directly into spin after a long period of agitation? Run a cycle and let it agitate for at least 5 minutes, When the timer gets to the drain/spin phase, does it go directly into spin? or does it drain without spinning first?

Thank you Samurai!

I will purchase the clutch kit. As you can see little plastic bits of the brake(?) in the clutch. However, is there normally an amount of grease there or is that the sign of a larger problem?

The "grease" is probably a combination of worn schmutz and de minimis oil leakage from the transmission.  Nothing to worry about unless you've seen a puddle of oil underneath the transmission.

Ok, clutch kit came in. Now I am reassembling and-swear to God the washer ate my C-clip. I didn't have to remove one to take down the brake cam. It is nowhere in sight.

 

So.....is this it?

ARRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!

 

C-clip came in. Nothing to clip to.

 

I suspect my drive tube is compromised. Can anyone send a close up of the end of this part? I suspect there is a groove to slide the clip onto? I need to get my groove back.

  Your T-bearing is shot. You will need to replace it. Just cut lengthwise on the old one with a hacksaw blade so you can break it loose and remove it and tap the new one in.

Thanks Eric!

Does the bearing slide over the tube? I'd like to fully understand how it comes together before I buy another $4.00 part and pay for shipping again and still not have everything I need.

And I guess that explains why there was no C-Clip. Pulverized over time?

  It fits into the tube. It has a shoulder on it and that is what "creates" the groove when the bearing is all the way in.
