hi,
The machine spins slowly, not letting all the water out of the clothes.
We alreaty replaced the water pump, but still the same problem. There was also a slight burning smell after the last wash. It doesn't leak, no other issues.

Also, I'm attaching a photo of a part that we are not sure what it is and if it is normal. Looks like a brace of sorts that should be closed.?..but we have no idea. Couldn't find it on the website.
Any help would be sooo appreciated. thank you!

Hi Maria,

The slow spin (wet clothes) could be caused by: unbalanced load; a clogged hoses to and from the drain pump; a bad drive block (#10 at the diagram); a bad basket drive (#1 at the diagram) or a bad clutch (#5 at the diagram). You can find more information in one of our previous threads: not spinning

- The drive block Part number: 389140

Part number: 389140



- The spanner wrench (needed to access the drive block) Part number: TJ90TB123A

Part number: TJ90TB123A



- The basket drive Part number: 285792

Part number: 285792



- The clutch assembly Part number: 285785

Part number: 285785



The part on your picture is the suspension spring. It looks not so bad and I don't think it needs any attention so far.

Here are the breakdown diagrams and Parts for Whirlpool LC4900XTW0 - AppliancePartsPros.com

hi Gene,

Thank you so much for this info. Should we replace all these parts, one at a time to see which is the true culprit? Which would you start with?

On the suspension springs, should those braces at the base be "closed" somehow?

I so appreciate all your help.

Replacing parts without proper troubleshooting is wasting of money and time. I would suggest to open the thread I posted for you and read all instructions.

The clamp laying loose on the bottom are used during shipping. The springs are compressed, the clamp is closed to hold them in the compressed position and a key is installed to keep the clamp from opening. Straps are attached to the keys and the straps are positioned up over the top and down into the tub. During initial installation of the washer, you open the lid, yank on the three straps to pull the keys out to release the clamps which releases the springs.

I watched the video on replacing the clutch, but did not see an example of what a 'bad' clutch looks like. Does anyone have a description or a photo? What evidence to look for to know that the clutch is bad and needs replacing?
thank you!

Did you check the drive block and the basket drive tube yet?

Did you see any signs of leaked oil?
