Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9564J Top Load Washer

2 Answers

Drainpipe leaking I just replaced my old washer with a new Whirlpool. Aside from being 20 yrs old and in need of a new belt for agitation, I was still able to use the washer with no major problems. I installed the new washer just as the old one had been seemed pretty easy. Until my drainpipe overflowed. I've never had this problem and the pipe is clear. I can't imagine a major block in the drain pipe from 3pm to 4pm the same day. I'm wondering if the water pressure from the new washer is too much? Any ideas? Thanks.

Re: Drainpipe leaking

Hi Mary, I'm going through similar experiences with my new Whirlpool which I learned to hate. I'm not an expert, however, I learned a thing or two about washers recently. Your problem could be related to one or two things: The drainpipe hose should not be placed more than 8" in length in the drainpipe as it creates a siphon effect. Also, the new washers are designed to spin fast, thus higher water pressure exiting into the drainpipe. If your drainpipe is clogged up for some reason and cannot handle the high water pressure, that may also create a problem. This can be solved by using some Draino in the drainpipe. Hope this helps.

Spin cycle will not work but motor is running. Washer is only 2 yrs old and seldomly used

does agitate cycle work? a. could be water leakage that's causing the belt to slip (if it's not 'direct-drive').
b. motor may need adjusting, because belt has stretched! if you're handy, then you can do it yourself, if not hire someone to check it out! cheaper than a new washer! unless it's water leak- as i try to always caution- UNPLUG IT!!

Washer won't fully drain.

If this washer has a self cleaning filter(cone shaped) it's probably plugged. Also could be the pump or the belt. Good luck..

Our LSR7233HQ0 washer is 10 yrs. old and the agitator stopped spinning. Any repair tips?

You may have broken the drive belt. Can you hear the motor spinning still? If yes, then it is definitely a broken drive belt.

Not sure if manifold is leaking

Leaks water...check the pump first. The fill valve and hoses may be the next step. See how to take apart info. With the use of plastic drain hoses on many machines today, this has become a common leak trouble maker. The drain hose can rub the wall or a pipe and this will rub a hole in the drain hose.

Kenmore Washer

the problem could be several different things depending on the make or model. quick answer would be to replace the belt(s). after a while belts stretch and become worn. not so quick answer would be a problem with your transmission and or motor.
