White Westinghouse Washer M# LA500MXW2
« on: February 15, 2012, 02:31:43 PM »

This washer is very old, and has been running until resently.  The motor tries to run, gets power, but is not able to turn a heavy load.  I thought maybe it was the pulley and belt, but not sure.  The transmission is solid.  No leaks or nothing.

Model LA500MXW2

This model the pump sit on top of the motor, I assume you already have the front panel off, because you said the tranny is solid. take off the pump and check and see if you have something inside the pump, or maybe the pump internals are bad. type your model number in the box above and you will see the pump, the part # for your pump AP2131624

Did you get your washer fixed, if so what was the problem?

Home decided to go and get a new machine.  I think it needed a new waterpump or something was stuck in it.  Motor turned freely and belt was in good shape.  They have a home warranty program and I think they got a settlement to either fix or replace.
