Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

2 Answers

Whirlpool LSR7133KQ0 no pumpout, rinse, or spin.

Washer stopped at end of first wash cycle. True of all wash settings. I assumed it was the timer failing to engage transmisson and/or motor and replaced the timer. Problem persists. Inspected impeller/ discharge hose for movement/ obstructions. Discovered impeller is direct to motor shaft- no clutch. Discovered multi taps to motor winding. Suspect motor must reverse to discharge water & spin. Can't see any other relays. Motor looks brand new- no water, dirt on it. Noticed lid switch issue on an LSQ posting, but my wash cycle works. Wouldn't the wash cycle fail also if it were the lid switch? Steve in Ruskin, FL

    This problem relates ONLY to timer. The lid switch is a seperate issue.

    Timer knocks off and has to be manually pulled out again each time until it swithes off again. So how to I fix timer or do I replace same?

NO...the problem you are describing are the typical symptoms of a lid switch malfunction. The lid switch shuts the washer off when you open the lid while the drum is spinning. This is a safety feature to prevent injury from moving parts if you decide to add a garment or stick your hands in the tub for some reason while it is in operation. On some model Whirpool's the washer WILL work initially for the wash cycle, then stop when it gets to the rinse cycle. I would recommend you check your lid switch to make it is not loose or broken. Your washer is also equipped with a lid strike (a small plastic piece on the lid that activates the switch) make sure it is not broken off or missing. This will give the same symptoms of a broken lid switch.

If you require a replacement switch, they can be ordered on line at searspartsdirect.com, or you can go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. The part number for the switch is 3949247. The lid strike (if required) is part number 358684. If you need instructions on how to replace the lid switch, you can use this link if you like:

I don't know how savvy you are, so I thought I would add the instructions just in case. I hope you find all this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

Kenmore model # 110.244222300, Won't automatically complete wash


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.#######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Following is a Whirlpool / Kenmore service manual for top load, direct drive washers.

Initial thoughts are that the Timer is worn / broken.

Here is a description of how to gain access to the console on these washers where you may be able to test the timer. (See the Whirlpool service manual for testing)

Model 110.27802690 stopped after rinse, still full, won't respond. Checked power source, won't work in any switch position


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.27802690


I'm assuming from your problem that the washer went through its' first wash cycle, drained and spun, then filled again for the rinse cycle, went through the rinse and didn't go to the drain / spin cycle.

If that is correct, it appears that the motor, pump and transmission are working. It also appears that the Lid Switch is working. These are the main places to look for a problem such as yours.

If you stop the washer by pushing the control knob in, moving it to the spin cycle and starting it again, and the washer still doesn't spin, the problem points to a defective timer.

Before replacing the timer, I'd check the Lid Switch again by removing the two Trim End Caps and the two screws under them. Tilt the console back and disconnect the connector from the console to the lid switch.

Using a short insulated wire, jumper the Lid Switch at the console by jumping between the two outer pins.

Following is the Whirlpool Installation and Maintenance manual for these machines with a section on how to jumper the switch.

Then try to start the machine in the spin mode.

If it works, the problem is in the Lid Switch.

If not, It is likely in the timer.

Washing machine won't rinse or spin


sounds as if you have a faulty lid switch, for safety reasons if the machine doesnt think the lid is closed it willnot spin/drain the waer out.

Whirlpool Washer will not progress to the rince cycle.


that is either a problem with the timer , or with the cold water hose at the back of the machine, see the following:



I quote from : The cycle doesn't advance

The cycle doesn't advanceWhen the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It'sthe timer, if your washing machine fills with water and beginsagitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spincycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • Itmay be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills withwater, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinsewater. See There's no cold water.
