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

Answer or Comment

Whirlpool clothes washer lsr9434pto with issues. It fills and drains fine, however it does spin at all. There is an electrical hum (sounds like it is being impeded) but no rotation through the cycles. There is no adverse smell (electrical or rubber) that would indicate the coupler. What is most likely the cause and what would be the best way to test for it? The customer service chat line person had indicated it sounds like the motor, but I'm not so sure. Would the clutch or drive block be likely?

Tj for Model Number lsr9434pto

ANSWER Hello Tj, This could be an issue with the coupler. The coupler could break and not omit an odor. Since the motor is humming it sounds like it is working and not kicking out on overload. Check the coupler first.
