During the spin/rinse cycle the washer will sometimes spin violently, almost like it's spinning too fast. This causes the machine to walk and bang around very loudly. I need to check the suspension springs, but wondered if it might be the clutch or transmission.
Answer Chris, The transmission is stationary and doesn't move, the clutch is a "slipping" device, and haven't run across a seized clutch, not without other issues. you will need to check the suspension springs 63907 and brackets 64067 as well as the suspension pads 285219 on the skid plate and 285744 on the base assembly.
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.
