My Whirlpool model LSR8233EQ1 top load washer died today. It will fill with water and it will agitate. It will not pump out water or spin. I assume it won't spin because it is filled with water.

 

It finished a load today, the timer got to the end, but it is full of soapy water. Just before it finished I heard a loud grinding noise for a few seconds, it stopped grinding and seemed to agitate, ground again, and repeated this a few times. By the time I got upstairs to investigate it had stopped doing anything, I think it stopped because the timer got to the end.

 

These symptoms lead me to believe the pump is dead, could it be something else? How would a parts changing monkey know for sure I need to buy a pump?

Never mind. I bypassed the lid switch and it drained. This will be an easy fix. I might leave it bypassed so my wife can finish today's laundry and get a proper replacement tomorrow.

 

Thanks to the Samurai for this article: http://fixitnow.com/...in-or-pump-out/


Thanks Senpai, that video will help me verify the switch is indeed dead.
