Washer jams during agitation, spin and drain
Model Number: LSQ8243HQO Brand:

My Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ8243HQO made a clunking noise then jammed up with motor humming. I tried to drain the washer and it drained for maybe 30 seconds then jammed with motor humming again. Initially the agitator was jammed and would not spin but as I was removing the cloths and bailing out the water I noticed it would turn easily. I plugged it back in a tried to operate it but the motor seems jammed and humming. After bailing out the water I laid it on it's side and tried spinning the motor by hand, it spins freely in one direction but in the other direction it will spin but jam up after a few turns. The pump also spins freely. I removed the motor and transmission and everything spins freely by hand, the agitator spins back and forth. I can rotate the basket/drum freely by hand also. Could this be a clutch issue or any other suggestions?
