  1. My machine, purchased used, has been freely spinning the basket while agitating. When not running the basket easily spins and after a spin cycle the basket takes some time to stop rotating. I ordered parts to repair the brake rotor, brake stator and snubber ring and took the machine apart. Inside I found an enormous amount of grease on the old brake rotor and Stator (both of which looked new). I removed those parts and tossed them out. I noted the parts I tossed all looked to be new making me wonder if something else may have been wrong with the machine besides the brake when I got it. Could the prior owner have tried to repair the brakes only to find it did not solve his problem and greased the brakes to get the machine to work? One thing I noticed is when I put the new brake rotor on the spindle it does not slide easily up and down the spindle it attaches to. There is some grease on the spindle (gear) that contacts the spines on the inner part of the brake rotor shaft, should it be there? How far down the spindle should the brake rotor go, only to the spring contact? If the shaft needs to be lubricated how much should I apply and what type, lithium grease? Presently the brake rotor does NOT slide easily up and down the shaft it attaches to. Is this a problem? I am at a complete loss as to how the brake gets applied during wash and released during spin cycles, it looks like something has to move the brake away from the brake stator but how does this work? Looking at the assembly it seems like the brake will always be tight against the brake stator and if this is true the basket will not spin after my repairs. Could this be why the prior owner greased what appears to be a new brake rotor and stator? Unfortunately I have no way to contact the prior machine owner to ask questions. I cleaned the cabinet metal area where snubber makes contact with the cabinet but like the area the brake stator screws into there seems to be some baked on grease and or snubber plastic on the painted metal surface including the bottom of the cabinet where tub rest. These are the areas the snubber ring makes contact with top and bottom. These areas are not coming clean with 91% Isopropyl alcohol, Is it imperative that all areas the Snubber contacts be completely smooth and how do I get rid of the hardened dirty areas described above that are not cleaning with 91% Alcohol? Should I only clean what will come off with 91% alcohol and dust the cabinet bottom with corn starch? I hope my writing clearly describes my issues. If not please tell me what you do not understand and I will gladly try to explain it again.
  2. I have a 1997 Whirlpool top load, direct drive Washer, model LSL9345EQ1. The motor is only about 4 years old. A few weeks ago the machine made it about 3 mins into the wash cycle when it stopped. An electrical burn odor was noted. After some time to rest it started up again and has run fine since with no odor. Today the machine filled with water and blew a 20-amp circuit breaker. Again, there was an electrical odor. I reset the 20A breaker and it completed its cycle with no problem and no odor. I checked inside the machine and all looks good. No sign of oil or leaks. No abnormal sounds at any part of cycle. Checked start capacitor with ohmmeter, checks good. Did three more loads with no problems, sounds or odor. Very puzzled! What is wrong with this aging washer?
