I posted about a month ago with this problem, and although I appreciate the
responses I received, they didn't help me solve the problem. So I'm trying
one more time...I'm going to give exact model info & problem descriptions as
exact as I can.
Model: Whirlpool Heavy Duty Super Capacity Plus Model#LSC8244D (no drive
Problem: Doesn't spin. Note: if I take all clothes out of it and then press
the lid switch it WILL spin...it seems that when *any*
weight is in it, a
mechanical part is failing that doesn't allow it to start spinning.
It drains, rinses, and cycles. I've already replaced the lid switch &
checked the contacts in the timing mechanism.
How I can "make" it spin: open the lid during the spin cycle, HOLD DOWN the
LID SWITCH with a screwdriver, and then MANUALLY give the tub a push in a
clockwise motion. At that point it will spin ON its own, and finish
normally(this only works for small loads though..nothing very heavy).
Other than not spinning out, all other functions work fine. Please post
what part/s I need to look at next. Thanks!
