Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

1 Answer

The hot water barely comes out of my washing machine. The cold water is fine

Both valves are wide open. I hadn't used the hot water in a while and now it dribbles out. I tried turning on both cold and hot thinking it would "blow out any clog" and it got a little better

It seems to be that the HOT line is clogged, You need to flush out more with high pressure or by removing the hot line and reverse flushing.
Also check for dirt accumulation at the hot line input and valve.

SOURCE: There is little to no water pressure in the cold


look into the inlet valves of the washing machine(where the hose connects to) and see if you can see inlet screens in the inlets, they are removable and you can can clean them but be very careful popping them out as they can get bent easily, hopefully that does it

Try adjusting the water pressure going into the washer. Too high of pressure can cause this *** well.

Hi Elllie602 (!) from retired Englishman in SW France,

2 weeks old? Under guarantee/warantee? Get in touch with the vendor/shop!!!
Even if it takes only cold water for the warm wash (which is a bit daft- normally washers mix the hot and cold accordingly) and heats it, that is not how most hot n' cold washers work.

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

If this is a spelling error and your not getting HOT water, I suggest you check the wiring or wire plug connection to the 'water inlet valve' assembly. 1st-unplug the AC power. 2nd-turn off both water valves.3rd-prepare for spilled water on the floor.4th-carefully use a wide(app 1 to 2 inch)flat chisel(BIG flat blade screw driver)and pry the top assembly up.5th-it should open like a large tool box. Look down inside the back to see where the valve assembly is mounted. Now option #2 is turn the machine on its side to see if you can reach the valve assembly from the bottom with out having to open the top. Good luck on the job.

I only have a hose attached to the cold water tap and inlet valve of my Fischer & Paykel top loader washing machine as I only do cold washes, this hadn't been a problem until recently, when th

it could be that the water level got to high and came out of the valve you could try putting a cap on the valve and see if that works and if it does not then it might be a bigger issue.

I replaced the cartridges in my moen kitchen 2 handle faucet.I used danco 6s-1h/c. the hot side works correctly. the cold side just dribbles out. no idea how to solve this one.

by dribble out I guess you mean that the water is not flowing out the way you want?
first thing I would do is remove the coldside cartridge and test the water flow to that point. If the water is free flowing ( yes its a bit messy) use a second person one to open the valve ubder the sink the other to cup over the top of the open side of the faucet.

if that has good flow then while the cold is still openhold you hand over the spout and turn on the out water to us that to back blow the tube that goes to the spout.

Hope this works out for you best of luck

When connecting the machine to the taps, do you need to connect the machine to hot from the geyser or the washing machine makes the water to be hot

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I think you will find that all washers are able to heat water. If they are hot and cold fill, they use the heater if the hot water supplied is not hot enough for the particular wash. If they are cold fill only then they need the heater for all non-cold washes.
If you purchase the washer you are thinking of and it is cold fill only, it will have only one inlet hose, the cold water one and it is a straight forward installation- hose from washer screw into cold supply tap.
If it is hot and cold fill you have a choice- either go to the expense of plumbing hot water to it OR purchase a 'Y' 'tap' adapter. The adapter screws onto the cold supply (by the 'bottom' of the Y) and the hot and cold hoses which go to the washer are screwed into the (top) 2 ends of the 'Y'. The washer opens its hot valve, gets the only water supply which is cold through what it thinks is the hot hose and heats it up accordingly. When it wants cold it opens its cold valve and gets the cold water through what it thinks is its cold hose- which it is!
I hope this clarifies the situation for you and if it has please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

No/low water inlet. Diag mode both ht & cold lights flash

first test water valve ohms reading, this fault could be either control module or water valve.first open top panel to see valves. turn power off to unit. try putting the hot water valve wire to the cold and the cold to the hot. hopefully they will reach, sometimes they dont. then put panel back on with loose screws. turn power on , select low water ,and hot fill.push start button but make sure your hoses r connected and turned on. the reason i"m telling u how to do this is to eliminate the control board as being faulty if the cold water comes into unit then the problem is your computer, if no water comes in it is your water valve.i hope this helps if u still need help please reply

Hot water dribbles thru shower head when turned to hot

Replacing the cartridge should solve the problem, the balancing spool is stuck, replacing it will solve the problem. The valve should look like this . I have unstuck the spools in the past, soaking it in white vinegar will help to remove build up.
