Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9564J Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Whirlpool ultimate care II tub has a flat spot while spinning

It seems to only be when it starts braking(slowing) that it goes thump thumps etc. and when it is done. if you spin the tub, by hand, there is a spot that it thumps. It is the same spot, like there is a catch or something. It can be VERY loud when the machine is running. Please advise. Thanks, my head is spinning.

This sounds like you have a worn tub drive block. you will have to remove the cabinet and then the tub cover, agitator and then tub nut. the nut is large and has a special spanner wrench to remove it, but you might be able to remove the nut with a large pliers or pipe wrench. the nut is cheap, usually about 7-10 bucks, but it is hard to get to and it will ruin the basket drive shaft if you let it go too long. so best to fix as soon as you can or it will cost alot more to replace both the block and the basket drive.

During deceleration after spin cycle there is a loud thump,thump every 180 degrees of tub rotation.Can i easily repair this and what are the estimated parts cost?


I assume that you have checked how the machine is loaded. My experience tells me that if the load is uneven the thumping begins. If the load is even I assume that a washing machine repair shop is the place to ask, after you have consulted the manual.

You have to start eliminating them one by one a common reason is the spin tub mounting block if the motor comes on and clutch is driving basket drive and brake assembly than this is the problem.
