Customer Question
We own a Whirlpool model...
We own a Whirlpool model LSC8244DQO washing machine. The machine will not spin or agitate. When in the spin or agitate cycle you can hear a spinning and slight rattling noise. There is a small pool of yellow tinted oil on the floor under the center of the machine. I think the transmission is defective; am I correct?

Hello from JA
My name is Woody.
I will be glad to assist you today.
I have been servicing ALL Major Brands of Appliances for 35 Years,
and have over 100,000 in home repairs and over 80,000 internet repairs under my belt.

Very unlikely that it is a gearcase /transmission issue.

I would suspect the motor coupler is broken between the motor and the transmission.

The link below is to the part you will need from a highly recommended company rated A+ with the Better Business Bureau.
They offer a 100% money back guarantee, EVEN ON INSTALLED ELECTRICAL PARTS, for an entire year!
They are the only company to allow returns on installed parts for a refund and offer a FULL ONE YEAR WARRANTY!

This link also gives you a step by step installation of the coupler kit .

If you have any questions just reply back.
