Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Model #LSQ7030KQ0 Won't Spin

The water drains out as normal, however sometimes the spin cycle will not start. I tried doing a rinse/spin with no clothes and it got stuck at the spin. I gave it a manual "push", and it started spinning. It went on to operate normally through the completion of the cycle at that point. For several days now, wash loads have been extremely wet because it is not spinning. There has been no change in water, size of loads, settings, or anything else that I can think of.
Thanks for any help you can provide.

    The lid switch was replaced recently and should be ok. Is it difficult to the repair the clutch/brake if that is the culprit?

    Thanks for the help.

Either a bad lid switch or a bad clutch/brake on the transmission.

    Remove the cabinet.Remove the agitator. Remove the motor.Remove the 3 bolts holding the transmission in place. Remove the brake from the transmission. Install new brake on transmission. Reverse the above order to re-install parts.
    Replace the direct drive coupling on the motor/transmission while you have it apart.

SOURCE: Ultimate Care II - Rinse Cycle does not start

sounds like a lid switch problem. is there a clicking noise when you open and close the lid?
if not then the lid switch may need to be replaced; inexpensive.
this could also be caused by a bad timer.
also try a different speed for the rinse cycle, it may be a bad motor and it is not going into a certain speed. instead of gentle or slow speed try fast or normal, something like that.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II is not draing properly and water is flooding out during spin cycle.


remove the hose up where it connects to the tub and see if there isn't anything stuck there,you could still have something stuck between the tubs and it usually will end up here or you could have a damaged pump from the piece of towel you pulled out of it or there's another piece still up in between the tubs and hopefully you'll find it at the hole where the drain hose is.

Excess water in clothes after spin cycle


Unblock the outflow pipe from the machine that goes into the sump under the sink. (have a pot ready for water overflow) This will help drain the water. If the spin cycle is making a screetching sort of noise then it is possible that the carbon brushes will need changing. This affects the spinning if the brushes are worn.

Whirlpool ultimate care II will not spin


You said,washer is full of water and will not spin. You hear the lid switch clicking. When you start it on spin cycle and hear a hum, the tub moves a couple of inches and then stops...shortly after it shuts off.


Some reasons this may happen
Washer won’t drain or spin
n
1. Is the drain hose clogged, or the end of the drain hose
more than 72 inches (183 cm) above the floor?
2. Is the lid open? ............Also the lid switch can be faulty!!
The lid must be closed during operation.
3. Is there excessive sudsing?
Always measure detergent. Follow manufacturer’s directions.
4 If you have very soft water, you might need to use less
detergent.

Sounds to me like the lid switch can be faulty!!Then it acts like the lid is open.

No high spin


Make sure you are set for normal cycle. Some permanent press cycles only spin on low. Also check that your drain hose is not kinked. If it is the water may not be draining fast enough.
