Question about Whirlpool WTW5850S Top Load Washer

1 Answer

My ultimate care II washer sounds like transmission is slipping

Apperantly,the washer was filled to capacity,but ran on medium water level. During the spin-out portion of wash cycle,it froze up,yet the transmission is still turning,sounding like it's slipped a gear or sprocket or something,if that's possible. I'm fairly mechanically inclined,and extremely funds-challenged,so any shade-tree fix would be wonderful!!!! Thanks in advance.

You probably need a new direct drive coupling.
Use the attached video to access the machine and check the coupling.

My Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Washer doesn't stop filling with water


If this only happens when the machine is turned on,the tube from the tub to the water level switch is pinched or broken. If the clear plastic tube is not pinched or broken,the water level switch in the control console is bad. If the machine lets water through when it is in the OFF position,the water valve where the hoses connect are bad.

I have a Whirlpool ZUltimate Care II Washer, Model 3XLSQ7533JQ2. Washer keeps filling in the medium and the super wash level and will not go into the agitation cycle. Works on small load level only.


Hello,

SInce the washer works ok on the small load size yet overflows on all others the problem is going to be with the water level switch and it should be replaced to remedy that problem.

The part number for that water level switch is W10339229 it could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at
searspartsdirect.com
apdepot.com

Fills up with water and wont stop


Bad Preasure valve comes to mind first and formost it acts like a level sensor balanceing the size indicated for fill.

The ticking sound is coming from the drive motor.
Removing the back and peering into the guts will tell you if there is a shredded belt causing the problem.
If the transmission has failed, the last one I bought years ago cost ~$130 wholesale.

Sounds like the clutch is slipping but sometime catching. Or maybe the transmission is almost gone. Is there a burning smell? If so, probably clutch.
