Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9564J Top Load Washer
I am trying to get the motor of to get to the coupler
How do I get it off
The easy way to get to it is that there are 2 Philips screws on the front or the back of the head take those out flip the head back you will see 2 brass clips stick screwdriver in the front and pop the clips and unclip the lid switch. than grab the lid of the washer and tip it forward. than if you look down you will see the pump take the 2 clips off of the pump and do the same for the motor that is where the drive coupler is located. you will need a 3/4 socket with extension to tap the drive coupler into place then repeat steps to put back together

Access to the motor is better from the bottom. Lay the washer on its side.

If it stops filling when it is full, doubt if water level switch. Take clear hose off of side of tub and blow into it, if you hear a clicking noise, it is not the water switch. The capacitor can be checked by placing a test cord on both terminals and applying 110 volts for a second to it. Then using screwdriver, short across the two terminals, if it sparks, it is okay. (be careful to hold the screwdriver handle, it packs a pretty good punch). If that those check out, remove the motor and the rubber coupling. Spin the coupling on the transmission with a large socket both ways. One way should make it spin and the other should make it agitate. If it does not agitate doing this, it is the transmission. If it checks out, then probably in the timer. Good luck

Yes, what has happened is that the coupler has not been fully seated on the gearbox shaft, the motor shaft, or both. you should use a socket and hammer to firmly seat the plastic coupling on each shaft. If the coupling is not properly seated, the washer will work, you will get rotation, but there will be constant back pressure on the motor shaft, pushing it against the rear bearing race and the pump at the rear, the added friction causes heat buildup in the motor and eventual overtemp switch operation. Just solved this tricky problem myself. another clue that the coupler isn't fully flush and seated is the last motor retention strap is very difficult to get on, due to the 1/8-1/4 inch extra length.
