When the spin mode is on it is important to take an careful test and observation on the motor voltage, speed, the agitator spindle and belt.
If the motor is tripping it can be related to high load or friction in the spindle. Check the bearings.
Also check the capacitor to the motor.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Ultimate Care Heavy Duty Washer will not spin

It sounds like you have a broken motor coupling. This is a very inexpensive and simple repair.

If the washer will fill and drain, but won't agitate or spin, you may have a broken motor coupling. The noise of the motor engaging, lack of agitation and ability to still drain are the usual symptoms. This is a common fail item with this model washer through normal wear and tear. Newer versions of the coupler are more resilient and resist breaking. The following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385252-replacing_motor_coupling_whirlpool_top
The motor coupling is located between the drive motor and the transmission and takes the place of a drive belt. They do wear out and can break. The replacement part number is included in the link I provided and is an improved upgraded coupling that is more resilient. It should last longer. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

A replacement coupler can be purchased on line at appliancepartspros.com for about $11. Just use the part number in the link and "Search by Part Number" for your search criteria.

I have a whirlpool ultimate care 2 washing machine commercial use. it its making a lot of noise I believe when spinning cycle changes as if the brakes are coming on noise gettting worse other than that...


here is one trick to do. put the timer on spin and pull out the timer knob. open the lid and use a screw driver to actuate the lid switch. then with your other hand hold the agitator until the tub gets to a high spin. once the unit is at a high spin then let go of the agitator. let the unit spin for another minute then lift up you screw driver. it should come to a gradual stop and not a sudden stop. let me konw if that works.

The motor will not spin..... can i have a diagram of a motor of ultimate care ii washing machine


The typical problems with "the motor will not spin" is a:

1. Lid-switch (very frequent): Will not drain, incomplete cycling, switch ultimately passes power to motor.
2. Belt or coupling (very frequent) - Belt moves when motor spins
3. Timer/control board (rare)
4. Tranmission (rare)
5. Motor (somewhat rare)

How do you know the actual motor is not spinning? Do you mean, the tub not spinning? Do you have a noise as if the motor is spinning?

Whirlpool Ultimate care ll Quiet wash Model # LSQ9564SQ0


The ***** part of the agitator is supposed to ratchet in the clockwise direction. this is normal. If you can spin it in either direction (turned off) then you need a set of agitator dogs.
