It appears your clutch assembly has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

On spin cycle sounds like change or rocks spinning around in drum.


Could be a bad bearing or something loose on the drum that doesn't rattle until you get up to spin speed. Look for something like pins, nails or screws stuck in the holes of the drum, or possibly under the protuberances (fins) inside the drum. Does the sound occur all through the spin cycle or only at top speed?

It sounds like you may have a motor control board issue. It acts like the motors brain and tells it what to do and when. part number 8182706. Also the closet error code i could find is a f/02 which means long drain, which could indicate a bad pump or draining cycle, alos knows as the spin cycle This should definetly be diagnosed by a technician. hope this helps

Fixed the clutch. Now has a rock crushing sound when spin starts


Hello askeng,

I would try to fault isolate the noise area by removing the front cover (watch the belt) and start a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket. It’s a 10 minute cycle so let the wash basket spin up to full RPM. Do you hear the rock crushing sound? If it sounds like the problem area is the clutch pulley area terminate the cycle with the Off Key. Check for any trace of a water or transmission oil in that area.

If that’s not the cycle causing the excessive noise I would next do a quick wash with no clothes in the wash basket and see if the grinding/rock crushing sound is coming from the tumblers in wash cycle, maybe some change under the tumblers.

When you cleaned/re-lubed the one-way roller clutch bearings how did they look? Did the Spinner Shaft Coupler (I show it in this post) rotate freely CW in both the upper bearing (if used) and the lower bearing? Let me know your findings and if you have additional questions. Rich

Barrel will not spin, sounds like motor is running.


check the p-trap for stuck loose items---change,rocks,etc.. I had the same problem and the technician said the placement of the p-trap causes lots of loose items to get stuck, which causes the washer not to go thru its cycles & won't spin.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L does not always spin


This unit has a neutral drain transmission. When it first goes to spin it will drain without spinning to ease load on motor. It will then pause motor and when it restarts it then spins.
You probably have a bad timer that is not pausing the motor. Monitor washer from the start of spin cycle to end to see if it pauses then starts again. If not, replace timer.
