The washer spins very slow on the spin cycle. The clothes were soaking wet when the washer was done. Now it won't spin at all and you can hear a slight humming noise. I think it's the motor but I don't know.

Whirlpool washer would fill but no agitation or sound coming from the motor. Ohms from terminal to wires do not register.Wire to wire the register correctly. I'm guessing I need a new motor. I guess thats allowed after 22 years.

Hi, Occasionally the motor hums then cuts out when going into a cycle. If I "grab" the motor and jiggle it as to re-seat it, the washing machine will work again. The motor runs fine out of machine. It seems that something periodically binds causing the overheat safety to kick in. Is it possible for the 4 grommets and or the springs the hold the motor in place lose their stability over time causing the motor to move? I did replace the whole coupler assembly and the water pump thinking they might be causing the problem. Thanks!

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!!

Hi, the washer fills and will not agitate or spin. There is a slight burning smell and the agitator initially locked up and a bit later loosened up. The lid switch tested fine, the drain pump is good along with the (3) hoses are clear. The motor coupling looks good too. No obvious physical damage to the motor. Please share your thoughts. Thanks in advance for your help.

I have a LSQ9010pw3 washer. My problem is that the washer did not drain all water out the other night. I have disassembled complete washer and I think I tested pretty much everything. I checked all hoses tub and pump for clogs. The pump is new. I removed the transmission and spun it with a drill both ways. It seems to be functioning properly. Only thing is that when the machine goes to drain the motor will not turn until it goes to spin cycle so I'm thinking that the neutral drain in transmission is bad. I just removed the motor and pulled out the motor-trans coupler and then reinstalled the motor. The reason I did that was to see if the motor without turning anything else would pump water. It barely pumps water at all.

How do I test the motor and the capacitor to see if they are bad? You suggest that I replace the motor with your motor ap2907974. Do I still need to use the capacitor on that motor? Will the wiring harness fit without modification?
