Whirlpool top-loader, burnt belt?
My Whirlpool top-loader LSC8244EQ0 agitator stopped working last week. I took it apart and found the motor coupler in pieces. I ordered one and replaced it last night. This morning my wife washed a load. For the first ten minutes everything seems fine, then she reported burning smell and shut off the washer.
I took it apart and found a rubber belt/gasket loose on a round housing below the tub, and above the drive gear housing (?).
See the attached pictures for the loose belt/gasket.
1) What is this part?
2) Is it difficult to fix?
Thank you so much.
That is not an operating belt.
I suspect your new coupler is jammed. Take another look at it, and if necessary fix any problems or replace it.
It is a sound dampening ring that is simply placed around the brake housing to dampen noise caused by brake action. It is fine as it is.
