have whirlpool washer LXR7133JQ1 does it have a belt? LXR7133JQ1 Whirlpool Washer - direct drive

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com and being a valued member.  I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your washer is not working properly.

I did look into your model and I do apologize the direct drives do not have any belts. You may be looking at a lower seal.

We will need more information on what the unit is doing to diagnose. No spin, turned off, etc.

You can also visit searpartsdirect.com for parts, diagrams, and repair information.

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 .

Thank you for your question. Have a great day.

Q:

WON'T AGITATE OR DRAIN, FILLS OK LXR7133JQ1 Whirlpool Washer - direct drive

A:

Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your question about your Whirlpool Washer. I am so sorry to hear it will not agitate or drain the water. I know how inconvenient it can be when the washer isn’t working and the laundry is piling up. I will be happy to help you with this.  To better assist you, I do need some clarification. When you move the timer switch to different cycles, does the timer buzz for 10 seconds and then continue advancing through the cycle? Or does it buzz and then stop? If it stops, then the issue may be the timer. Sometimes you can tell if the timer is the issue simply by looking at it. Otherwise, you can test it with a multi-meter.  WARNING: Before you remove the timer for testing, be sure to disconnect the power supply to the washer to prevent risk of injury due to electrical shock. Also, internal parts may have sharp edges. Use caution and wear heavy gloves if possible.  When removing the timer to test it, you will need to disconnect the wires attached to it. Be sure to grip the wires at the connectors. Do not pull on the wires themselves as that can damage them. Whenever you are disconnecting wiring, I recommend making notes or taking pictures of the connections to make it easier to reconnect the wires later. Check for any burnt or scorch marks and replace any parts with obvious damage.  Following the instructions that came with your multi-meter, set it to read continuity. Press each one of the probe from the meter to one of the connectors of the timer. Turn the timer to the rinse cycle. If you do not get a continuity reading, the timer is faulty and needs to be replaced.  I have included the link to order the timer for you.

Timer for Whirlpool Washer Model LXR7133JQ1.

 Based on the symptoms you described, the logical answer would have been the lid switch, but you mentioned you have bypassed that. Therefore, if the timer is okay, I recommend you check the Motor & Isolation Coupling next. It is on the shaft of the motor between the motor and the gearcase. It is comprised of three parts and is made to break or stretch to protect the motor if the basket is off balance or overloaded. If it is damaged, it will have to be replaced before the washer can agitate again. I have included the link to order the part for you.
 Motor & Isolation Coupling for Whirlpool Washer Model LXR7133JQ1. When the coupler is damaged, the washer will fill with water, you will hear the motor working, but the agitator will not work and the basket will not spin. The washer will normally drain, but the clothes will come out dripping wet so it may look like it didn’t drain. If the coupler is fine, I recommend you check the gearcase. This is the main component in the mechanical drive system. It provides functions such as neutral drain (drains the water from the basked before the spin cycle), agitation and driving the clutch drum. I have included the parts diagram for the gearcase so you will be able to see the parts in it. Gearcase Parts Diagram for Whirlpool Washer Model LXR7133JQ1. The parts are available for it individually and you can order them from the diagram link I provided. Or you may find it easier to replace the assembly. I have included that link for you also. Gearcase for Whirlpool Washer Model LXR7133JQ1. Once you have the repair completed I suggest running the washer through a cycle with Washer Magic. It is a cleaner that will remove build up in the tub, pump and drain. I have included the link for the cleaner for you.  Washer Magic If you are not comfortable testing the parts and completing the repair yourself, you can have a Sears' technician complete the repair for you. To set up service please go to www.SearsHomeServices.com or call 1-800-469-4663. I hope this answers your questions. If I can be of further assistance please respond to this thread. Thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business.

THE TIMER MOTOR IS OK, IT RUNS NORMALLY WHEN CONNECTED TO 115V. I BELIEVE THE BUZZING IS NOT THE TIMER MOTOR, IT MAY BE THE MAIN MOTOR. IF IT HAS A THERMAL RESET, THAT MAY BE WHAT SHUTS IT OFF AFTER 30 SECONDS(NOT 10SEC). CHECKING CONTINUITY OF THE TIMER ITSELF SHOWS CONTINUITY BETWEEN SOME OF THE CONTACT POINTS, BUT THE WIRING DIAGRAM IS ABOUT AS CLEAR AS MUD. ANY FURTHER THOUGHTS?? THANK YOU

Thank you for your quick reply. I do not see a thermal reset for your washer. However, some washer motors may need to be reset if there has been a recent disruption in power, a sudden spike in power, or if the washer stopped because the laundry load in the basket was unbalanced. To see if the main motor can be reset, you will need to start by unplugging the washer from the power source for at least 1 minute. After you have reconnected the power source, you have 30 seconds to start the next phase of the test, which is to open and close the lid 6 times. Once you have raised the lid the first time, you have 12 seconds to complete the cycle of opening and closing the lid 6 times. During the test, you must lift the lid at least 2 inches each time for it to register as opened. Bypassing the lid switch may prevent this from working.  I hope this helps. Of course, if you have any other questions please respond to this thread. Thank you again for choosing Sears.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If your washer will fill and drain but not agitate or spin then it likely has a broken motor coupler.

I added a YouTube video showing how to access and replace the motor coupler . This may be the issue. If not, please reply and I will be glad to assist you further.

If you find a broken motor coupler the part number is #285753A which can be ordered from Sears PartsDirect .
