First check the hoses to the machine. If they leak the water follows the hoses and drips on floor. Also check the hose connection at the washer. They will leak inside. Next it may well be a water pump going out or the plastic hose that is under pressure when operating. The pump is in the middle of machine underneth - Sorry - Good luck

My daughter had the same problem for about two years. A repair man came out and told her to call the company and tell them she wanted it fixed under a recall. She said the computer board had to be replaced and it was recalled due to a flaw in the machine. The service man came back again after she called, and he fixed it for free.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.
Based on your post I understand you have a problem with a washer, further to that your description "it would fill and wash but at end of wash cycle would not shift to pump out, nor go to rinse cycle nor spin" leads me to believe it is a faulty lid switch.
The scenario you describe is usually associated with a faulty or broke lid switch...but I don't know if you checked that yet or if you know how.
The lid switch failure is definitely a common problem with these models. Here`s how you can repair it pretty easily...or even just to gain access to check it.
( this is based on the most common Whirlpool, Estate, Kitchen-Aid, Roper, Kenmore, Inglis top-load washer, not necessarily applicable to ALL...but with your model number it will cover yours)
Here`s a helpful link for changing it out, though it will have subtle differences it is a good tutorial on accessing and changing the switch.
The lid switch will look like this...(if it is indeed a LSQ9549L model...if not please post the correct model number)
Let me know how you make out. If this is something you think is not within' your scope of expertise please call a pro. I think you'll be fine with the tutorial video in the link.
I will try to help in any manner I can of course as well, if you need it. Good luck.
Thank you for choosing FixYa. Please take a moment to rate the info I provided and a short testimony is appreciated.

Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.
