Question and Answers


On Whirlpool washer model LSQ9010LW0 how do you remove the bolt holding the agitator down? The bolt turns either left or right but only so far then no farther.


Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

The bolt should turn counterclockwise until it comes out. Here is a video that will demonstrate removing the agitator in a washer like yours; Video . Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts. This video is for demonstration purposes only. This washer may not look exactly like yours, but the procedure is basically the same.

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 .

What is the procedure for replacing the clutch or brake and drive tube?


The clutch assembly is most likely worn causing it not spin and not the brake and drive tube. You will need to remove the washer cabinet, motor and gear case in order to access and replace the clutch. The clutch bands is designed to grip the clutch drum and as the clutch torques around the end of the clutch band strikes the clutch engagement cam which causes the brake band to release on the brake and drive tube so that it can begin spinning.

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

  • The console will need to be placed in the service position by removing two (2) screws, one (1) screw located at the bottom of the left hand end cap and one (1) screw located at the bottom of the right hand end cap. The instructions on releasing the console on the last image does NOT pertain to your model but all other information will.

  • Remove the screws at the bottom of both end caps and then 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 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.

  • Remove the agitator by removing the cap and bolt. Lift the agitator off by grasping the bottom and not the top.

  • Remove the three gear case mounting bolts.

  • Lean the washer up against the wall and pull the gear case out. You now have access to the clutch assembly.

See images below for further instructions.
