Otay fellers. Here's my sitchiashun:

I have a Whirlpool model LSR8233EQ1.

The machine will agitate, but will not spin in the spin cycle and makes a hell of a lot of racket.


I've pulled the motor(which is ok) and the coupler is fine. I can take my finger and turn the coupling (gearbox side) and the drum turns a little, then the drum stops turning even though the coupling keeps turning. After a few more turns of the coupling the drum starts to turn again, then ...repeat...repeat..repeat.

Does this sound like the clutch or the gearbox? And how in da heck do I get to the clutch?

Thanks!!!

You have a bad gearcase. This stop/start that you are feeling when you turn the coupler clockwise is the spin gear slipping. This gear is plastic and the teeth are shredded on part of the gear. You can rebuild it or replace the gearcase.

OK, I got the gearbox in and everything back together. I ran the washer through a cycle and, yippee, the washer now agitates AND spins.

Great, except now I've got a violent 'wobble' in the spin cycle. I'm sure I securely mounted the gearbox with the 3 mounting screws. What could be causing the 'wobble'?? BTW, this is with clothes or without clothes.

if you laid the machine completely down to change the tranny you more than likely dislodged the skate plate...link...this is for another problem but shows a very good pic of what it should look like underneath...look at the 5th pic from the bottom...the skate plate is the white piece that sits just above the machine base...notice the plate looks like the top of the letter A...longest flat part to the front (notice there are notches at the corners that should line up with the machine base )...if it doesn't look like the pic then you will need to do some adjusting to get back in the grooves...1 person can do it but 2 sure makes it easier...1 to raise the tub assembly and one to trun the plate...hope this helps...good  luck

thats the piece, if it gets twisted the least bit (the picture is the right way) and gets out of kilter and when it start to spin it sounds like a wobble then will slam against the side of the cabinet....this is where I would start looking...good  luck

Hi Poobah, thanks a bunch for replying to my problem.

I just want to verify this was the picture you were talking about concerning the skate plate.

If this is the correct image, is it the white piece at the yellow arrow or the red arrow?

Both arrows point to the skate plate, that white plate is a seperate piece between the base/leg assembly and the upper super structure/spin bearing tube assembly.

The white plate rest on three brown or white glides that snap into the base/leg assembly on the flat side of the white skate plate and the the upper spin bearing tube rides on three glides on top of the white skate plate.

If you laid the washer down when you were working on it the skate plate probably moved out of position. You would need to reposition it correctly as you see it in the picture you posted.
