Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If you see the clutch housing spinning, either the clutch assembly will need to be replaced or the basket drive will need to be replaced. When the clutch housing begins to spin, the torque of the clutch must strike the brake release lever on the basket drive and it push it over in order to release the brake on the basket drive. The basket drive begins to rotate which  causes the basket to begin spinning slowly. As the clutch is slipping it is pushing on the brake release lever releasing the brake, and the basket drive should begin spinning the basket. I added some images below to reference.

In order to access the clutch and basket drive, the transmission/gear case will need to be removed. The agitator will also need to be taken out as well as the drain pump and motor. The washer cabinet will need to taken off the base as well. If the basket drive has to removed and replaced, the spanner nut securing the basket to the basket drive will need to taken off before you pull the basket drive out of the tub support.

 I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Q:

What parts do I need to get, in order to repair my Whirlpool washer if it doesn't spin?

A:

It is a Whirlpool washing machine, model LSQ9645KQ1, serial CM2927879.



It sounds like the clutch in your washing machine is worn out. The part number for the clutch is 285785, and it costs around $40.00.

Replacing the clutch is a pretty major repair. It involves removing the gear case and motor from the washer. You might need a technician to do this repair.

What are the chances that it's the Drive Block P/N 389140? Does Sears sell the spanner wrench to remove the spanner nut?

The outer drum of the clutch spins on the spin cycle. The agitator works on the wash cycle. The agitor shaft does not spin on the spin cycle.

Hi Dianne,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

From your description this issue is most likely being caused by a bad lid switch. The lid has to be closed for the motor to run (agitate or spin) and drain the washer. If the lid switch is faulty, it will act as if the lid is open. A quick check you can do is to run a cycle with the lid switch bypassed. If the washer operates, the lid switch needs to be replaced.

To bypass the lid switch you need to unplug the washer and open the console. Here is a video that demonstrates gaining access to the lid switch; Video . Once you have the console open, locate the connector for the lid switch. Place an insulated jumper between the gray and tan wires (see image below), not the green it is a ground and will cause a short. The red arrows indicate where you need to place the bypass and the green arrows indicate where the lid switch is connected in the washer. After inserting the jumper, make sure it will not touch anything metal. I recommend covering it with electrical tape.

After ensuring that the lid switch bypass is secure, plug the washer in. Then start the washer in a cycle, and let it go. If the washer completes the cycle, you need to replace the lid switch. Do not leave the jumper in place and continue using the washer while you are waiting for the part. The jumper is for testing purposes only.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website; Sears Home Services .
