Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer
The agitator in the machine won't spin back and forth and makes a noise indicating it' stripped when you add clothes. When I take the part that you add softener to out, I can see the actual connetion spinning at the bottom of the shaft. But the upper part is the part that is stripped. How can you take this apart and fix it? What kind of parts do I have to buy? Thanks
I think what you have going here is some worn agitating ears. In the appliance world we call them dog ears. You have to remove the fabric desp, it should just pop off. Under there will be a cap that you can grab with a needle nose pliers and pull the cap off. Now you will be looking at the bolt that holds the agitator to the shaft. Remove this bolt and you can get to the dog ears and plastic bearing. There is a kit for this and the part number is 3951682. This is not a hard fix...just take your time and observe.

I have that same model, but have a slightly different problem. Mine agitates fine, but when it should go to DRAIN/SPIN, it just stops completely. I checked the gearcase already and it does function properly by shifting to SPIN, bu the motor stops. I suspect the selector switch/timer, but hate to replace it with further diagnosis. Anybody know where to find a troubleshooting guide for these? Thanx, Phil 1-02-08
