Customer Question

I have a whirlpool washer model lcr7244hq1. It has quit spinning or agitating during the wash cycle. The belt is tight. If you lift the lid it stops as it should. The washer does fill with water and does drain the water.

  • When it should be washing or spinning, does the motor turn even though it is not washing or spinning?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It seems to be. You can tell it is trying, but nothing happens.
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

Okay, that is not good. Can you tell if the belt is moving with the motor or if it slips on the pulley?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
That I can't tell. Even with a flashlight, the way the parts are laid out, it is hard to tell.
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

I understand and agree, this is not a service friendly model. Please allow me just a few minutes to prepare some information for you, thank you!

If the belt is tight and the motor runs, the transmission is most likely at fault if it does not spin or agitate. If this is the case, it is probably time for a new machine. The transmission is ridiculously expensive and very difficult to install. However, the transmission is available at the link below should you decide you would like to pursue repair.
