Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

2 Answers

Whirlpool washer LSQ9549LW makes one loud, violent clunk ea. spin

The problem began suddenly -- during a spin cycle -- and shook the thing so violently I thought it would punch through the floor. Turning the washer slowly by hand, it clunks once each revolution and seems to drop slightly. It feels like a soda bottle cap that you continue to turn after you've loosened it. It still turns smoothly and balanced (suggesting it hasn't completely broken or jammed). My guide doesn't diagram the inside so I don't know what might be happening.

Great analogy, sounds as if you have broken/stripped the tub block( its waht secures the inner tub to the outer tub) part number 389140, if you removethe agitator( a 7/16" bolt down the center of agitator) there is one more lock ring that isactually tightened down across the top of said "tub block"( usually need a specialty spanner wrench to remove, but have done it with a pipe wrench) after removing that lock nut the inner tub will release and the new tub block can be installed...

I had the same problem once. I have an opinion, not sure if it is an answer. when mine did that, I found out that i had filled it too full with clothes. or, it could be uneven...try evening your washer see if that helps you maybe? But, on the first problem, all i did was decrease my load sizes and it worked, so maybe that can help?

Washer making loud noise and wont spin


Check and see if the inner drum is loose and floppy.if it is, it's likely the bearings have collapsed, and require replacement...If the drum feels stiff and tight, it could be that something is jammed between the inner and outer drums. Both situations could be costly...Get quotes....Good luck...Nomess

Washer won't agitate or spin out.


Well it is ethier Belt, Cluch ,motor ,Or transmission. But it does sound like your transmission . The loud clunk is the brake in the gear case ( Trans.). It might have broken off.

Washer makes clunking noises.......


You didn't give to much detail about the noise, other then clunking. Does it sound like it's metal against metal? Does it sound hollow? When does the noise take place before, during or after the spin cycle.

The easiest thing to do is check to see if the motor is loose, or if you might have too much slop or slake in the belt, if you do then replace and readjust the belt.

Shook Violently first time on spin cycle


Make sure the washer is leveled properly and all four feet are resting on the floor. If it is level, try running one cysle without any clothes in it to see it is spins without that violent shaking.. you may have also had an out of balance load.. Hope that helps!
