Model Number: LSQ7030
My washer appears to work fine except the clothes are still wet after the spin. Had a repair tech come out and even though he could not duplicate the problem he said the transmission is bad and I should replace the washer as repair is $150 for trans and $200 in labor. Of course, washer is 5 months out of warranty.
I used it for another week and it worked pretty good on slow spin. So I decide to explore further. I have checked the hoses and pump, clear. No clothes between baskets. Checked the coupling, it's fine. There is a light spray of oil on the inside of the case (not as bad as your pics) and there is greasy black fibrous material on the floor and on top of the gearcase.
After reading past posts, I am inclined to believe the trans is bad and that the clutch is oily and slipping. So after all, I am considering a new machine. I'm a handy girl but I don't think I'm up for replacing both trans and clutch.
I have one question that I could not find addressed here. When I move the basket back and forth I hear water sloshing. The outer basket is completely drained. I tipped the washer and still no water comes out. So where is this water? Is this indicative of another problem?
Also, if I go with a new machine, do you have recommendations?
