For Whirlpool Direct Drive Washer Motor (Part Number: AP2907974)

Answer or Comment

View all Questions

The motor starts and does agitation and a few seconds later, approximately 20 seconds, I hear a click and it stops. I cannot restart it. I stop it and let it cool off a few minutes.Then I can start it in any setting and it will repeat the problem. When I put it on spin, after it cools off, it does the full cycle and it stops. I do smell overheating smell of a motor. The agitator turns freely left and right full cycle. Is there an overheating switch in the motor? The direct drive coupler I replaced new and did nor fix the problem. PLEASE HELP!!

Chris for Model Number LSB6500PW2

ANSWER Hello Chris. It sounds like the motor is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
