Washer fills up with water but does not start to wash/agitate


if you don't hear the motor running you have a bad lid switch,if you do hear the motor but no agitation you have a broken motor coupling.
most likely you have a broken lid switch,close the lid,then open it around 6 inches,close it and open it a few times,as you do this if you don't hear a clicking sound the switch is bad,part number 8054980 and it's around 25 dollars.

watch this video, when you click on it look down on the left side it will say replacing new style,click on it and it will show you your model.it will show you how to make sure it's the lid switch but if you don't hear any clicking when you open and close the lid the switch is bad,also if the lid is pushed in from putting the laundry basket on top of it open the lid and wack the center of the lid to pop it back up,i've done this before when the lid is dented in and this fixes the problem,the arm that's connected to the lid doesn't hit the switch correctly with the lid dented in but usually the switch is bad and needs to be replaced.

watch the first part of this video and it will show you how to open the top console,this is different from your lid switch this is just to get you into the top so you can change the switch.good luck,if you need anymore help let me know and i hope this helps you out

Will not spin


if it filled with water and then stopped check the lid switch,open the lid around 2 inches and close it,do this a few times if you don't hear a clicking sound the switch is bad,if you can hear the motor running but the washer doesn't spin or agitate then you broke the motor coupling,both are easy fixes,watch the video from utube and it will show you how to get at the parts,good luck with your washer and if you need anymore help let me know.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFsvLiuTniU this will show you how to get at the lid switch but your switch is different if your model is lsq9549l,your switch is hidden under the top console part number 8054980 and it's around 22 dollars and this is for the coupling http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9K1KHEogf3c

Will not wash or spin


the two most common things are a broken lid switch or motor coupling,if you can hear the motor running but nothing else is happening you have a broken motor coupling,if it filled with water and then nothing check the lid switch,close the lid and then open it a few inches,open and close it like this a few times,if you don't hear a clicking sound when the lid opens and closes then the lid switch is bad.next time send the model number off of the washer,it will start with 110. or similar. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFsvLiuTniU this will help you with the lid switch but the part number could be wrong,when you call your parts store give them the model number and you'll find it right under the bottom of the lid when it's open.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9K1KHEogf3c copy and paste for the motor coupling,good lick and hope this helps

It will fill up with water but nothing else


check the lid switch,set the timer on spin,push it in so it will run,get a screw driver or anything that will fit into the hole on the right side,that's the lid switch,the strike on the lid hits it when you close the lid,if the switch is broke it kills the power to the machine,it's a safety so the machine won't run with the lid open,when you push down on the switch you should hear a click and it should spin and drain,if you don't hear a clicking sound the switch is broke,or you can close the lid,lift it up a few inches and close it down,do this a few times,when it closes and opens if you don't hear a clicking sound the switch is bad.part number 3949247 and it's around 45 dollars.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFsvLiuTniU copy and paste,it will show you how to get at the switch.let me know what you find so if someone else has the same problem they will read what you found,thanks

Whirlpool High Capacity washer, start cycle , it fills with water then no agitation, and no spinning.


next time send the model number,open the lid,look on the right side and there should be a hole in the top,that's the lid switch,it's used so the washer won't run if the lid is open for safety reasons,set it to spin and with a screw driver push down on the plastic piece in the hole,if nothing happens push in and release,do this a few times,if you don't hear a clicking sound when you push up and down the switch is bad or close the lid and open it an inch,close it and open it a few times,no clicking sound the switch is bad.

It filled up with water and when I closed the lid it just wouldn't work. I checked all the plugs and fuses and besides all this I have all my clothes in the machine soaking. Help please?


check the lid switch,you could have broke it when you closed the lid.also next time you write send the model number,open the lid,get a screw driver and stick it in the hole on top,that's the lid switch set the timer to spin,or close the lid then open it an inch and close it and open it if you don't hear a clicking sound the lid switch is bad.all the lid switch does is to stop the washer from running with the lid open for safety reasons
