Your video makes it look easy to lift out the inner tub on a Whirlpool LSR7233EQ0. I had little problem tearing down to that point but the inner tub just won't release from the drive block. Any suggestions? -Mike
Answer Mike, The spin basket does have a tendency to "stick" to the drive block 389140 In most cases you can get the tub to break loose by attempting to "rock" the tub back and forth. Another alternative is to lift up on the tub ( use a rope or webbed strap for leverage) , The drive block should release from the drive tube and you should be able to remove the tub and drive block as a unit, and tap the block out of the tub center opening.
We replaced the drive block about a year ago and now it is doing the same thing noise wise, loud clunking at the end of spin cycle. What is making my drive block go bad so quick?
You will need to check the drive tube, check the top where there are 2 tabs and make sure that they are not rounded off. If it is rounded off then the drive tube would need to be replaced as this is causing the drive block to fail.
My washer spins on the rinse cycle but I do not think it is spinning fast enough to remove all the water from the clothes. The last few loads of lanudry are coming out to wet. The last load after it completed I could smell a burnt smell. I do not see a drive belt on this model. So would this be the "Basket Drive and Brake Assembly AP3094539"?
Answer Rick, First check the drain hose for kinks or sharp bends, then check and make sure theres nothing stuck between the top of the basket, and the tub cover. You may want to fill the washer on the highest water level, then let the washer drain and start to spin. The tub should be completely drained in 90 seconds or less. If all checks are OK, then the odor and the degree of wetness of the clothes would indicate a "slipping" clutch 285785.
