Whirlpool Ultimate Care 2 trouble spinning out model LSQ9564MQO

The spin cycle has trouble getting up to speed. Clothes are still very wet at the end if the spin cycle. Everything else seems to work fine in cluding the agitator. I have the lid switch "hot wired" so I can view it. Work better with light loads.

lid switch is bad chance are you can by pass this by removing the timer header and crossing the outer wire on the lid switch that it mounted closest to the lid not the power cord this will tell you if you need a switch

SOURCE: Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washer won't spin clothes more dry than soggy

Tip the washer backward, inspect the bottom of the gearcase for oil. If oil is present, the oil has migrated to the clutch causing it to slip during spin. The gearcase and clutch will have to be replaced if oil is present. Check the owners manual for limited warranty on the gearcase. If oil is not present, the clutch is just worn and should be replaced.

SOURCE: How to separate auger from agitator. whirlpool ultimate care II

When you look down into the agitator, are there 4 white plastic points that look slightly melted or otherwise deformed? If so, using a small flat head screw and a small hammer, separate the white plastic from the surrounding translucent plastic. Once you've done that, it should easily pull apart.

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description, the problem is likely worn agitator dogs/gears. The new dogs alone part # 3109 or what I'd recommend, part # 285809 for your specific model as a kit with new hub too.

i.e.

macmarkus_260.jpg


These are common and available at most brick & mortar parts depot's as well as on-line vendor's such as "repairclinic.com" or "searspartsdirect.com" to name a couple.

You`ll need to remove the top of the agitator to replace them.

To remove the top cover of the agitator, it should lift off by prying up gently with a flat screwdriver or puddy knife.

Under this cap there actually is a screw/fastener,( bolt ) it just may or may not look anything like a typical screw.


It could be a plastic piece with a square center and with the aid of a large flat screwdriver inserted in this location pressed into one of the corner`s in the square center

(as to hold it still or turn it, I usually hold it still while turning the agitator)

at the same time as holding the bottom of the agitator, turn it counter-clockwise and it will come loose. It may be the bolt style and in that case just remove the bolt and lift it out.


On Whirlpool washer throughout the years there are several types, ones with a 7/16", 1/2" or 9/16" bolt holding it in place, and the type I described. Based onthe model number you provided yours will be the 7/16" bolt.

This is a link to a helpful "how to" video...it may have slight differences to your washer, and may refer to a different part number but essentially the same...it is still Whirlpool.

Thank`s for visiting FixYa. Good luck and let me know if I can assist you further.


Regards,

Macmarkus :)

WSM2480 Clothes Still Wet After Slow Spin Cycle


It's possible that the tub didn't drain properly in the allotted time and the remaining water is slowing your drum from coming to maximum extraction speed.

Soaking wet clothes after spin cycle


Check and choose a longer spin cycle and see if the fault changes. If so the SPIN cycle is too less or there is less action or speed in the cycle, check the motor speed, check the capacitor to the motor, the spindle friction - if so reset the spindle and drive.

Wfc7500vw spins but not at high speed on final spin


This is a common problem with the Whirlpool front load machine. The motor control board goes out but the new ones have been redesigned. You will need to replace the control board. Here is a link to the control board you need.

Have a kenmore washer and I have to run everything thru 2 spins cycle


If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn clutch.

The washer is not spinning well...Clothes are partly wet when cycle is completely off...it used also to leak at one time where we can see some water when the cycle is complete...


Hello, when the clothes are partly wet when cycle is complete then check these.
1. Motor coupler
2. Spin cycle

MOTOR COUPLER; To test the motor coupler, restart the washer in it's spin cycle,let the machine runs for a minutes and then open the lid and notice if the tub is spinning: if it's spinning when you lift the lid that means the coupler is fine and if it doesn't spin that means you have to replace it.
SPIN CYCLE: If the washer doesn't reach it's proper spin speed,the cloth may be wet at the end of the cycle,check to be if the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again,if the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt which you have to replace.
Thanks

GE Front load washer WBVHB240EWW. Approx 5 years old. Is not spinning water out of clothes. At end of most cycles clothes are sopping wet. Only speed wash and drain/spin seem to work correctly. Gets stuck...


The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these: Motor coupler Spin cycle Siphoning Water-inlet valve Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine. If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely. Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician. Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess. Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

I have a Kenmore frontloading washer, model no. 417.42042100. At the end of the wash cycle, the clothes are still very wet; that is, still SOAKED with water, even though all the water has been drained...


HI. your unit is equipped with a spin control board. this board, if damaged, will not initiate an adequate spin. This will not allow for proper drainage and drying of the clothes. The spin motor regulates the rotation speed during the spin cycle. It seems to be the culprit at this time. Have the spin board replaced asap.

This part will usually cost around $150.00 at the most.

Wet clothes at end of spin cycle


sounds like your transmission is not working properly. check your warranty information. (should be in your owners manual) many of the whirlpool made top loaders came with a 5 year warranty on the transmission/gear case

GE Front Loading Washing Machine seems to be holding water....


The high speed spin of a front load washer should normally do a good job of getting squeezing out the water but if there is an oversudsing condition that makes it hard for the drain pump to operate then the suds and water will just stay there. First make sure there is no actual clog in the drain line then run a load with no soap or detergent and see what happens. It's always better to use a low suds detergent with this type of machine
