Where is the motor, front or back of my washer Mod LSQ9010LW0 LSQ9010LW0 Whirlpool Washer - direct drive


Thank You for choosing Sears I regret to hear that you are having issues with your washer and do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. Im looking at your model LSQ9010LW0   and to access the motor coupler will require removing the washer cabinet. (See images below)


  • First, disconnect the power cord from the power source.


  • The console (key#26) will need to be placed in the service position by removing two (2) hidden screws, one (1) screw located at the bottom of the left hand end cap (key#7) and one (1) screw located at the bottom of the right hand end cap (key#10).


  • In order to access the two (2) hidden screws, the left hand end cap trim (key#8) and the right hand end cap trim (key#11) will need to be removed.


  • To remove the end cap trim (key#8&11), place you finger behind the trim at the very top and bend it up enough to clear the console and then hinge it towards the front and off.


  • Remove the hidden screw under each end cap trim at the bottom of the end caps. Slide the console forwards about 1/4 inch and the raise it upwards and hinge it over the rear panel.


  • Disconnect the 3 wire lid switch harness plug located on the top. Pop the two (2) gold colored cabinet clips off as shown in the second image below.


  • Place the tip of a flat tipped screw driver down into the first valley and then push the handle end to the rear of the washer to pop off the cabinet clips.


  • Open the lid and grab the opening and tilt the top of the washer cabinet forwards just a few degrees and then walk it backwards and off.


  • Remove the water pump by prying the two (2) pump retainer clips off.


  • Leave the two (2) pump hoses connected to the pump and shove the pump over to the left and out of the way of the motor.


  • Disconnect the motor wire harness plug from the motor.


  • Pry the two (2) motor retainer clips off. Note: if there is a screw threaded through the motor retainer clips, remove the screws before prying the motor retainer clips off.


  • Remove the motor.

You now have access to the motor coupler. The motor coupler consists of three (3) parts. One fits on the gear case input shaft, one fits on the motor shaft and the rubber isolator links the two together once the motor is reinstalled.

See images below for further instructions.

Reverse the procedure to re-assemble the washer. If you have further questions please let me know. Thanks for choosing Sears
