Q:

how to CHAnge a belt on a la7800xp whirlpool washer Whirpool washter LA7800xp

A:

Thank you for choosing sears I would be happy to help you with your washer. Upon researching model la7800xp;  1) Turn off water. Unplug washer power cord and disconnect water supply. 2) Take off agitator and cap from the washer machine 3) lay down the washer machine on it's front. Protect front of the unit from any damage or scratches. Don’t leave it over night on it's front because some oil will leak out of top of the transmission. 4) Remove back service panel 5) Loosen both nuts holding the motor mounting bracket in the base plate holes. 6) Rotate the motor to the right to lessen the belt tension and remove belt from motor pulley 7) Once belt is taken off from motor pulley, rotate motor to the left as far as possible to assure cam bar clearance. 8) The spin cam bar must be all the way  to the spin position. Push up on the spin control solenoid plunger and rotate the main drive pulley until the cam bar advances to the spin cycle position. 9) Remove the brake yoke spring from the gear case cover and yoke. 10) Remove completely the 3 support brackets attached to the gear case and base plate. 11) Remove the 2 pump bolts that mount it. The pump hoses do not have to be removed. 12) Remove the gear case mounting stud which has the spacer and  remove spacer. Loosen the remaining 2 gear case mounting studs approximately 7 turns. 13) Remove yoke retainer from yoke support. 14) The gear case can now be pulled down so that the belt can be slipped out between the top of the clutch shaft and the clutch yoke. and then through the space beneath the short stud; drop the belt from around the gear case. 15) Reverse the steps in steps 15 & 13 to replace the new belt. 16) Replace the pump making certain the pump lever is engaged in the notch in the agitator cam bar before securing the pump to the gearcase . 17) Grasp the bottom loop of the yoke spring with a pair of pliers and engage the spring with the hole in the upper gear case cover. 18) Replace spacer in short gear case mounting stud. Tighten the 3 gearcase mounting bolts ( by hand tight only ). Next, set the machine upright and tighten the gear case mounting bolts securely. This procedure will allow the structure to properly align itself with the center post bearing. 19) Lay the machine on it's front to mount the 3 support braces to the gearcase baseplate. Tighten the bolts securely. 20) To adjust the belt tension properly, position the belt over the pulleys. Insert a hammer handle or some other lever between the motor mounting brackets. Rotate the motor to the left as far as it will go. Tighten the nuts holding the motor mounting bracket. Check the tension of the belt, it should deflect about 1/2 inch. 21) Set machine upright. Reinstall the agitator, agitator cap, service panel, water hoses and connect electrical supply.  The belt should operate properly after this installation and be ready for use. I have posted a link below of the belt.

I trust that this information will help you, thank you have a great day.

There is one detail I need to know.

Does it drain the water out first or does it just stop agitating and then hum?

If the washer doesn't drain then I suspect the lid switch is the most likely problem and a good place to start.

If the washer will drain then do nothing it may be a timer or pressure switch problem.

Please reply with the additional information for further assistance with this problem.

Right, the washer will drain and spin-out after the wash cycle then start humming. It will only rinse if I put the dial on the fill area of the wash cycle again that it will run through the rinse cycle and finish the rest of the setting I have it on. (Regular wash/Perm Press/Gentle).

From the description you give I suspect the problem is with the timer. Some will develope a bad spot. The 660992 timer can be obtained from the SearsPartsDirect site.

I want to thank the expert, Fred M, for assisting me with this issue. Without the expert knowledge that he provided, I don't think I could have repaired my washing machine! Also, a big "thank you!" goes out to Dezeray for reminding me to put the model and serial numbers in the information!

Q:

What would cause my washer to stop draining and spinning?

A:

When you say "I hear the motor" you did not indicate if the motor sounds like its actually running or if it is just making a humming sound. If the motor is running during the drain and spin cycle it should at least pump the water out unless there is blockage in the tub hose or drain hose. It is possible for the washer to not spin while the motor is running if the motor coupler is broken but it should still pump water out.

If the motor does not run at all during the drain and spin cycles the lid switch is likely broken.

Now, if the motor is just humming during the spin cycle but will run during the agitation cycles it may have timer failure or loose wiring connection.

I recommend checking for a broken motor coupler and for a restriction in the drain pump. I added a couple of images below with instructions on how to remove the washer cabinet and instructions on removing the motor in order to access the motor coupler.
