In Topic: Whirlpool Washer LSR8233EQ0 Keeps Stripping Couplings

30 April 2013 - 11:12 AM

I've ordered new FSP couplings and I'm waiting for them to install them. In the mean time, I put on a coupling half of the inferior design. So far I've done eight or so loads without any issues. Looks like it was just the inferior couplings that were failing. 

I guess on the bright side, I've performed a decent overhaul of the machine replacing the clutch, pump and agitator assembly, overhauling and cleaning the brake and transmission. When I get the FSP couplings installed I shouldn't have to worry about this machine for several more years. Doubt I'll get another fifteen years out of it, but anything is possible.

 

Thank you all for the helpful hints and suggestions. And special thanks to Eric (bairbank56) for a dose of reality by pointing out the now obvious issue with knock off replacement parts.

Eric,

 

That's a very good observation. I didn't even think about that fact. Just checked the amazon site where i bought the couplings, and wouldn't you know it most of the reviews said that they were breaking. I'm going to order a OEM now.

 

Having worked with motors for over 10 years in the past, you think I would have thought of that.

 

Thanks. I'll let you know how it goes.

 

Update: The one that I have looks like the photo on repair clinic, except that maybe the metal insert has tabs that go into the plastic instead of just a disk. Is this actually the case?

Eric,

 

I don't think it pauses after draining, I'll have to run it again and check that out. Sounds plausible that it's not pausing to allow the neutral to release. Is it possible that by not releasing it's somehow creating a bind somewhere else.

 

micabay,

 

After the initial replacement of both couplings and the grommet, I've only been replacing the coupling on the side that failed. The grommets are still in good condition. 

 

I've had the brake assembly completely apart. I sanded down the housing, dressed up the pads and lubricated the pivot points and anywhere there's metal to metal contact. Everything in the brake area seems to be working well. I will take another look at the brake assembly. the brake cam seems kinda loose, but it still seems to be doing the proper job. could the brake cam be the problem?
