Whirl washer WWP22ABHUSOO

9 posts in this topic

Motor, belt and pulley turn in spin but tub no turn.  Bearing clean and tub turns freely by hand but will not engage tub to spin.  Never seen this model before, any input?

are you sure you put the right model number?  This model you gave is a direct drive and doesn't have a belt.  Has a coupler which could be bad.  The motor and pump would work but no spin.  Does it agitate?

Yes it is correct, it is a new portable model and is not a direct drive.  Its very similar to current top load whirlpool.

Ok I think I know the one you mean.  I've only seen one and it was for another problem.  I'd be interested to see how yours turns out.  Sounds like you need a service tech manuel.  If it was the old style I'd say it was in the gear case, the neutral switch.  I'm not familliar with this model either.

  This is same as LCE4332PQ0 compact model. May be bad brake actuator, splutch or loose pulley. Very similar design as new VMW models. Here is service manual and parts manual.

That reminds me of a GE washer.

Thank you Senpai for the information, that was very helpful and yes that looks like the identical unit.  Ive checked the pulley, i'm leaning toward a bad brake accuator.

The brake actuator is powered when it spins IIRC so it is a definite possibility.. if it is made with the same high quality as the shift actuator in the big versions that would not be a surprise.

 

Before I changed the brake actuator (since it would be a part order for me) I'd take quick look under agitator to check condition of wedge bolt and the basket drive tabs that engage hub.  You'd probably hear this problem but I think it is worth looking at.

 

I rarely see these mini machines so this advice is based of foggy memories and the manual.  If my assumption about brake operation is wrong I'm wasting your time.

let us know what you find out.  Sounds like the brake actuator to me too.  I think it needs to release to engage the spin gear.

You can check power to the actuator when it's in spin and you can ohm out the solenoid to see if it's  bad.  I think you can also get underneath with it unplugged and activate the lever by hand to see if it will spin when the brake is released.
