Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer
The agitator on my whirlpool utimate care II is not agitating the cloths. it is moving very slightly back and for but not at all like it should. What do you think the problem is?
Replace agitator dogs, which should be available at your local appliance parts store for around $10. Replacement takes about 20 minutes (for a Whirlpool washer, at least.) Remove the center filter and you'll see a bolt (11 mm in the Whirlpool.) Remove the bolt, which you may be able to do with hand-turn socket wrench unless you have an extension for your ratchet. Removing the entire plastic agitator assembly is easy when tugging from below.
This next part may note be needed, but: Once you have the assembly out put it on the floor and stand on it. To remove the free moving part of the agitator, grab the fins and give it a good tug or two to free it from the lower assembly. It may take a bit of effort. Remove the inards, replace the four dogs, and reassemble.
It was *really* easy to do...and certainly a lot cheaper than having someone come out or, as we thought we were headed, to replace the washer.
