Hello. I have been reading this forum for a while tonight and can't seem to find a solution to my problem.
The problem: The Washer, a Whirlpool LSN3000WP4, won't drain like it should. The clothes are still very wet at the end of the cycle.
What it does: It fills the basket, goes through the wash cycle (Agitator spins), it sounds like the motor is running when it should drain but the basket doesn't spin and the water does not drain completely.
What I have done: I thought it might be the lid switch so I tested it with an Ohmmeter. The two left prongs would open/close the circuit so that seemed to be in good shape. Then I pulled the pump off of the direct drive motor, inspected the pump which was free of debris and appeared to be in good shape (no cracks, the wheel inside was in good shape and it spun freely when I turned it. Then I pulled the motor out and looked at the coupler which was completely fine (No broken pieces and it was not worn). Then I cut a wire hanger and ran it up the drain hose both into the basket and then the hose that goes to the drain. Both were not plugged up. Lastly I poped the top of the basket off and looked down in between the basket and the plastic barrel and made sure there was nothing in there.
I am stumped and would love some suggestions.
