LSQ9110PW3 Not Spinning

<< < (2/4) > >>

jrclancyjr:
Ok finished with the job interview got the sick wife and kids taken care of time to dive back into the washer

Ok I could not figure out the tub block bailey I did not see anything with a big nut on it.

But I turned the clutch alittle bit and started it back up it started spinning perfectly, I let it run through the entire spin cycle, it stopped on its own. After it stopped I started it again and it started right back up spinning, let it spin for a minute then stopped it myself. Tried to start it up again and it would not start spinning this time.

So I stopped it, I manually spun the basket clockwise heard click come from underneath. So I turned the spin cycle back on and it started working just fine.

Sounds like the clutch right?

I was looking for a regular big ole nut.

The spanner wrench that he uses in the video if I dont have one of those and cant find any place to go get one (sears and lowes here do not carry it) is there something else I can use to get it off without messing it up?

AJ:

You do not have to remove the nut just to see if the drive block is stripped out.
With the agitator removed you can just look down on the top of the drive block to inspect it.


There are two notches in the drive block the slip over the two tabs on top the spin tube.
Sometimes the two notches get stripped out and then the spin tube can not spin the block.
If the block don't spin the tub won't spin because that big spanner nut holds the tub and block together.


I have only ever used a spanner wrench to remove the nut, part # TB123A


I'm sure some guys will let you know that you can use a flat blade screw drive or a punch to remove it, but that's not the way I do it.
If you do remove it you want to make sure to get it nice and tight when you put it back on and once again the spanner wrench comes in handy for that too.

It does not appear to be stripped. If it was stripped would the spin tube still be spinning and just not spinning the basket?
