Default Clicking noise when draining- now won't spin
Model Number: Lst8244bq0   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Last week my (old) washing machine started making a rapid clicking noise while draining and spinning. I would stop the washer and start it back up and it would be fine. Then stopping it didn't make the sound stop, but it still worked away. Now, the clicking is there- and it won't spin anymore. Any thoughts on what it is? Also any idea cost of repair for this problem?
I apologize if this has been posted before- I looked and couldn't find my specific problem.
Thanks in advance!!

Could be a drive block problem. The drive block secures the inner basket to the basket drive. Could also be a problem with the brake cam driver which is what drives the basket drive. Could be a problem within the gearcase. If your comfortable with tearing things apart, I can help you or you can call a tech. Whirlpool direct drive machines are definitely worth fixing. Parts are readily available and they are relatively easy to service. These machines are everywhere and most any tech has experience with them.

Thank you for your response, after checking prices on parts I have a new dilima. The washer came with our house when we bought it and I've already replaced the water intake valve and hoses. I don't know whether to keep putting money in it or buy a new one. Any suggestions?
Also does anyone know what capacity this particular washer is? I've searched and can't find a size.
Thank you.

Well, that is a 20 year old washer. If you are able to service it yourself and it's in decent shape (not rusting out), it's worth fixing it in my opinion. I would not want a new washer because of the ever more stringent government energy and water usage standards that they must comply with. I hear nothing but complaints about them and the new Whirlpool top load design is a piece of junk. On the market for 3 years and breakdown after breakdown. Be sure to do a lot of research before deciding on a new model.

Washer capacity is usually only listed in the sales advertising. To determine capacity, measure the depth and radius (half diameter) of the tub in inches. Square the radius, multiply that by 3.14, multiply that by the depth and divide by 1728 to give cubic foot capacity.

Thanks Eric, in your recommendation what is a good, sturdy washing machine right now? I have no concern about features really, I use two settings reg/heavy or delicate. Not big on frills when it comes to laundry

The best top loader would be one of the Speed Queen models. They run around $800.
