I have a whirlpool ultimate care 2 super capacity plus washing machine. We had it for about 7 years, just yesterday it stated to make an unusual noise when it was in spin cycle. As of today the washing...


My LSQ9549L is 7 yrs. old as well with an awful sound when spinning in high speed.
I've changed the agitator assy. as well as removed the drum and cleaned the soap build up on it.
Still makes a terrible sound in high speed spin. All other functions work.
Could it be the springs or coupling? I'm leaning towards it being the counter balance springs with it being rather weak. Could I be correct?
Your help is much appreciated.

Washing Machine does not agitate


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Following is the Whirlpool installation and maintenance PDF on how top load, direct drive washers work with a troubleshooting section.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

Following is the Whirlpool parts list for commercial top load, direct drive washers although the consumer washers are basically the same.

The problem seems to point to the Agitate Cams in the transmission that raise and lower the Agitate gear on the main transmission shaft. These are relatively inexpensive to replace.

I'd also check the splines on the main agitator shaft and the two pronged "washer" on top of it.

Ge top loader washer agitator does not work


To check the agitator. Start the washer into wash cycle. Once started Push down on top of agitator. If it catches some times or all of the time when pushing down, then then doggets are worn, under the agitator. You`ll have to remove the agitator to see these. If by pushing down on the agitator, nothing changes, Then you probably have a transmition problem. Check this and let me know what you find.
