Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9564J Top Load Washer

Whirlpool gold washing machine

My 2 year old Whirlpool Gold washer clicks 2 or 3 times a second after the wash cycle when it is trying to spin. It seems like the motor cuts on and off over and over and over, so the spin never gets up to the correct speed. However, if I chance the cycle to cotton (which is a high speed spin) the machine runs like it always did. On a low speed permanent press cycle, the machine may click on and off hundreds of times until I manually cut it off or switch to the cotton cycle. I am considering taking it to the dump and buying a Korean washing machine. Any ideas?

It is either a timer issue or a motor issue. I know, that you knew. But if you have a motor with like circuitry and size, you can try that or to put it into the spin cycle and see if it is a mechanical obstruction or with a voltmeter see if the timer is working.

5 year old Whirlpool Gold washing machine wont spin or drain. I hear the motor hum, but wont engage. Number is GST9630PW1

Easy solution: NEVER BUY A WHIRLPOOL PRODUCT. It's only 5 years old. You spent good money. In reality, this machine is doing exactly what WHIRLPOOL Corp. programmed it to do: FAIL.
NOW, you call the service guy. They tell you it will cost about $500 to $600...which is really not a good solution. Because in 5 years, this stuff happens. The best solution is to BUY A NEW WASHER. Mission accomplished! Sell product. FIX -ha! That's how things were when our grandparents purchased appliances. Parts could be replaced. That's no longer the deal.

You have a Whirlpool Gold Ultimate Care II Washing Machine. And the washer will fill with water, but when it tries to go to another cycle you just hear a loud rumbling noise and the basket will not spin?


Sounds like the coupling connecting the transmission to the agitator is worn out!
If I were there hands on I could be definite.
But it sounds like you need this replaced!
Thank God it's not the transmission.
When a transmission goes out of warranty, it;s not worth putting good money into bad! They are just to expensive a repair!

Only a hands on laundry tech can make the diagnoses.
This time you should call service
Let me know what is the final results.
Please write me back.

How old is the washer??????????????

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

Bless You,

Please give me a good rating before you sign off.
Thank You

Hello! your problem is the motor control unit,MCU.
or the central control unit,CCU. Try unplugging the washer for a few minutes sometimes that will reset the unit.There is a tech sheet inside bottom of the washer cabinet.If youre not sure, may need a service tech.
