Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer
Bottom part of the agitator works well but the top portion turns freely by hand and is not engaged to the bottom part. During wash/rinse cycles the top part just stands still.
This problem is generally caused by worn agitator dogs which are part of the agitator cam under the top portion. The dogs act as a clutch to drive the upper portion of the agitator. The do wear out with age and require periodic replacement. The following link explains:
This is a very simple problem that can easily be repaired by the average do-it-yourselfer for very little money. Replacement parts can be purchased on line at searpspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Agitator, Basket and Tub Parts" heading for item number 10. For a little more, the entire cam replacement kit (which includes the dogs) can be purchased as item number 9. If you do not wish to purchase on line, take the part numbers listed on the website and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. These parts are commonly part of their in store inventory.
Read through the link thoroughly and let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps you.
