Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer
My washer was bought three years ago, new. Now that the warranty is expired my washer has quit spinning. I have had to put loads through an additional spin cycle to get the clothes less wet. Now... it won't spin at all! Could this be the drive belt? I'm wwanting to fix this myself. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
The motor coupler could be worn. This is accessed by removing the front of the cabinet. The upper console 1s held on by 2 screws at the base of the upper control at the back corners. The console slides forward then rotates up. Benearth the upper console is 2 gold spring clips which have to be pryed out with a screwdriver, The power cord will have to be disconnected at this time. The whole cabinet will tip forward 45 degrees leaving the base and tub assembly stationary. The cabinet then can be slid out of the way. In the front at the bottom is the pump and motor. Pry off the 2 spring clips that hold the plastic pump in place and pull it out of the way. You do not need to disconnect the water lines. The motor is held in place by 2 spring clips which are fastened to the motor by a 5/16 hex bolts. Remove these bolts and pry the clips out of the way they both will pop off of the motor, do not let the motor drop. Pull the motor out of the way revealing a black rubber disk with a white coupler on the motor shaft and one on the transmission shaft. this whole assembly will likely be damaged and will need to be replaced. The coupler should only cost about $10 at any appliance parts store.
