Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer whines any time the agitator is moving or spinning, not while filling, etc. What might this be? I live in the middle of nowhere and my appliance repair man has died of old age. Literally.

We took the housing off the washer and started the machine, albeit carefully, and followed the squeal. Sounded like the water pump thingy in the front. Took that off from the machine but still connected to the hoses and the squeal stopped. Dipped and drained machine, removed water pump thingy and looked inside. Found a really beat up hairpin/bobby pin lodged inside! (I have two teen daughters at home) Removed pin, put back together, and wah-lah, a few hundred dollar miracle, no squeal!

Disconnect power to the unit.
Does the agitator move freely in both directions by hand?
Could be your agitator coupler needs to be replace
Also need to verify the lid switch and pressure switch are working properly. Let me know if you need further assistance

Will not agitate after water fill up. Motor makes whining sound.


Hi,

It sounds like it could be the coupling that has worn or broke, to verify this put the washer in spin, let it drain the water out (if it will) then turn off the timer or open the lid, wait 10 seconds or so then start back up in spin. If the washer just whines then it is most likely the coupling. I have put together some instructions on this if you follow this link it will tell you more about it and how to replace it if you wish. Let me know if this helps.

I have an A211 washer and it will not agitate. it fills and i can get it to spin but i cant get the middle piece to work. also, the agitator will not move by hand, it is locked.


Maytags will always spin because the whole trans turns in the spin cycle so the only thing doing any work is the motor,but when they won't agitate it is a bad transmission,if you have the old helical drive it runs $500 part # w10172458 if you have the orbital drive it runs $225 part # 22002127 they were good washers but that is a lot of money.

Reset computer. Unplug for 2 minutes, plug back in, open and close lid 7 times slowly to reset computer. This should solve your problem.

Washer will fill with water but the agitator won't spin.


No agitation or spin in any cycle? If so and the machine will drain check the coupler.

Agitation issues. Everything else appears/works normally.


I just encountered the same problem. I think the operation of the machine is such that the motor turns one direction for the spin cycle, and the other direction for the agitate cycle. I am replacing my motor, as I think i have a bad winding on the reverse. I will let you know.
