Whirlpool Washer LSR7233BQ1 (TL)

14 posts in this topic

With a full load setting washer overflows when spins.  Washer does not drain first before spinning, immediately starts spinning and subsequently overflows tub.  Thought it was the clutch but replacing did not help.  Leaning towards transmission.  Suggestions??

... Washer does not drain first before spinning

Does the Washer Motor pause for a few seconds after Agitate ?

(function of Timer)

Transmission needs to see a few second pause to enable Neutral Drain.

You can simulate the pause by opening the Lid for about 5 seconds after Agitate.

   Neutral drain is enabled during the first few seconds of agitate mode. The motor has to pause after agitation in order for the motor to reverse direction for spin mode, not to enable neutral drain. The neutral drain mechanism is set up during the first 10 rotations of the gearcase main drive gear in agitate direction. Then when it reverses direction, it takes another 3 rotations before the latch engages and holds it in neutral. After drain, the motor must pause so that the latch can release, then motor starts again for spin and drain. If your motor doesn't pause after drain, this is what can be simulated by opening/closing the lid.

  Here is my detailed explanation as to how the neutral drain mechanism works. This is as if you are looking down on the spin gear and could see the neutral drain parts underneath.
