Whirlpool Washer LSR8233EQ0 Keeps Stripping Couplings

26 April 2013 - 08:08 AM

I have a Whirlpool Washer Model# LSR8233EQ0 that has been giving me a ton of problems. This washer is 15 years old and until recently hasn't given me one problem.


I've went through the original coupling and three coupling halves. Each time I've replaced the coupling the washer works fine for a load or two then it strips another coupling. I've completely disassembled, cleaned, lubed and reassembled the entire mechanical portion of the washer. I've replaced the clutch, cleaned and lubed the brake assembly and sanded down the brake housing. I've checked all of the bearings and pivot points. Last night I noticed that after the agitate cycle the washer seems to get stuck during the drain cycle. After the water drains, the motor is running but nothing happens. When I released the lid switch the drum jumped a little and when I pressed it again it started spinning. The rest of the cycle finished without a problem. The next two loads finished without a problem. During the third load the coupling once again stripped.


I'm thinking that it's either the neutral drain in the transmission, or the brake cam (which i didn't replace because it didn't come with the clutch) is not disengaging the brake properly, or binding up.


Any thoughts, or something i've missed?
