    Default Whirlpool Washer sometimes does not spin cloths dry enough run second spin

    Model Number: LSQ9564JQ0
    Brand: Whirlpool
    Age: More than 10 years

    Have a washer that not always but probably most times will not spin cloths as dry as they should and need to spin a second time. No unusual noise just not spinning dry enough. What would seem to cause this?

    Thanks
    Dennis

    Hi Dennis,

    So its draining the water fine within 90 secs? but then won't spin fast enough?

    Check your motor coupling, to make sure its not worn out.

    Motor couplings are the most common part to go out on these models, as its just like a belt, and can just wear out over time.

    Here's the motor coupling for your model you can order if needed:

    Watch this video to access/replace it:



    If the motor coupling is good, then its your basket drive/clutch assembly that's worn out. I always replace both when these machines get up to the age your machine is now, as both wear out over time as well.

    Here is the basket drive for your model(Video Included):

    You look to see if you notice black rubber shavings on your floor just under where it mounts between your motor and transmission, also see of the holes in the black rubber are wallowed out, and see if any of the plastic fingers that go into the black rubber are broken off.

    If none of the above, then its fine, and you'd need the clutch/basket drive assembly. Yes, it is a bit costly to replace both parts especially at the age your machine is now(over 10 years old), so you may want to save the repair money for a new washer.
