    Hi,

    The model number is LSQ8243HQO. Whirlpool Ulimate Care II. Yes I can hear the motor running. It sounds like something is loose and spinning around in it. The belt is fine.

    Thank you again.

Can you hear the motor running during the wash cycle? If so you probably have a broken motor coupler. This is a fairly simple repair if you are mechanical at all.
Please post back with the complete model number so I can be sure what I tell you is correct.

    Remove the two screws that hold the console to the cabinet and flip the console back.

    Remove the two clips that hold the cabinet to the rear panel of the washer and unplug the lid switch harness. The cabinet will tilt forward and slide off.

    Remove the clips holding the water pump and move it to the side.

    Unplug the wires from the motor and remove the clips holding it.

    You will see the motor coupler.

    Make sure you can turn the gearcase shaft with a pair of pliers so it is not locked up.

    If the coupler fails again in a few months, you most likely have a problem in the gearcase and it will need to be replaced. The transmission should be covered by a 5 yr warranty but you will have to pay the labor.

    Also, the last digit of your model number is a 0, not an O. Knowing this will help in ordering parts. You should be able to get a new coupler for about $10.

    Post back if you need further information.

    Thanks/Mike

Whirlpool ite6234d thin twin could someone tell me in detail where the belt is located in the washer?


I can not find your model number that you posted.
I can tell you that all whirpool thin twins up to last year were direct drive with no belt except for the dryer section. Whirlpool stackers from the early eighties did have a washer belt if yours is this old replace the entire machine.

Not sure if manifold is leaking


Leaks water...check the pump first. The fill valve and hoses may be the next step. See how to take apart info. With the use of plastic drain hoses on many machines today, this has become a common leak trouble maker. The drain hose can rub the wall or a pipe and this will rub a hole in the drain hose.

Whirpool lsq9244eqo fills and drains but does not spin or agitate


It sounds like the agitator gripping teeth are worn out. To check this, take the agitator cap off with a strong knife or flat-head screw driver, pull the cap off and check the plastice teeth and four plastic hooks that grab the teeth. If they are worn out, then you will have to replace the agitator. To replace it, you will see a nut that is between the circlular teeth. Unscrew the nut and pull the agitator up hard.

Ultimate II is refusing to go into agtation/wash cycle


It sounds like a bad timer unit, and possibly a lid switch.

As far as the water overfilling, that may be an unrelated problem, such as the water level switch... but most likely the timer.

I have the same model, and it wouldn't drain.. and it would try to spin when full of water... an interesting sight to see!

Washer problems


if it wont drain , check your lid switch, check out your motor coupler, if it will not agitate and spin, replace your motor coupler, if it agitates and dont spin, replace your lid switch.

alot of times the washer will drain but we hurriedly cut it off when we hear noise or the water is out but it never spinned and so the clothes are soapy wet...
