Question and Answers

Q:

LSQ8520JQ1 shield LSQ8520JQ1 Whirlpool Washer

A:

Thank you for choosing Searspartsdirect.com and being a valued member. I can certainly assist you in locating what the heat shield is in your washer.

Motor shield's purpose is to prevent dust, ect from being sucked into the fan blades that are used to cool the motor down.
 
Its' primary purpose is to prevent residual heat from heating and discoloring the floor covering. (It will make a white linoleum floor turn beige directly under the motor).

It also prevents water from getting into the motor.

From the description I suspect the drain pump is jammed or the transmission is locked up and needs to be replaced. The humming noise and the washer trying to fill indicated there is voltage. One thing you can try if your comfortable with do-it-yourself is to remove the motor from the transmission and see if it will run. The images below and the following link to a video may help you with this project: Replacing Whirlpool Washer Motor coupler . Remember to unplug the washer while accessing and removing the parts. Once the motor is separated from the transmission and pump see if it will run. If it still hums and doesn't run then this may be a motor problem. You can reply with any additional details or questions for further assistance.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the washer. I am a little confused. On what is going on with the timer. if the problem with the washer is it will stop when it gets to rinse I recommend checking the lid switch. The lid switch has to be closed for the drain and spin cycle on your washer to work. If the lid switch is faulty, it will fill and wash but nothing else. A quick check you can do is to jump the lid switch and see if it will drain. If the washer operates, the lid switch needs to be replaced.

To jump the lid switch you need to unplug the washer and open the console. I have provided you with the instructions for opening the console below. Once you have the console open, locate the connector for the lid switch. Place an insulated jumper between the two colored wires. Not the green it is a ground and will cause a short. After inserting the jumper make sure it will not touch anything metal, plug the washer in. Start the washer in a drain cycle. If the washer drains and spins, you need to replace the lid switch. Do not leave the jumper in while you are waiting for the part. The jumper is only of the test.

To you replace the lid switch you have to remove the cabinet of the washer. The instructions for that are also in the image below. Once the cabinet is removed you can take the screws out securing the lid switch and remove the harness from the clips along the underside of the cabinet. Then reinstall the lid switch in the reverse order. Before you reassemble the cabinet, please read the instructions for installing the cabinet provided in the image.
