Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9564J Top Load Washer
Model LSR8233EQ1 Alright, I have a whirlpool ultimate care heavy duty plus washing machine, top loading. Had problems with it like not spinning properly, towels getting wrapped around center, burning smell and noise. Someone came in and replaced the dogs for the agitator, but when in doing so broke the o-ring for the tub ring cap. After a couple of loads a bad burning smell came from the motor and loud noise. I figured water may have gotten down to the motor and burned it out. So I order and installed a new motor and here are the symptoms:
When water finishes filling the tub, the 'agitation' starts by going into a violent spasm where the center piece keeps rotating one direction and tangles towels around it. At the same time there is a very loud grinding type of sound. When I open the lid, it will continue unless I push the knob in, turn it a notch, and then close the lid for normal agitation. It will continue to wash normal until the rinse cycle. The water will drain, fill back up, and the same violent 'agitation' will begin. If I pull the knob and skip a notch, the machine will just sit there and tick until it reaches the spin cycle. Then continues like normal.
So....What do I do? I think the towels choked out the motor before by strangling the center piece.(called the??). I'm hoping its not the transmission. Maybe the other half of the agitator? The clutch assy? That's about all that's left to replace, I guess. Any suggestions would sure help. Thanks
When you put the motor in did you replace the coupler between the motor and transmission? When fixing the agitator you need to get the agitator repair kit, It has seals, dogs,thrust plate, cam bearing and seals. The upper agitator is supposed to move only in one direction to get the clothes to move down towards the agitator. Do not overload machine. I have one of these and after 12 years I finally had to install this upper repair kit because the upper agitator quit moving. You may have an agitate cam that is going bad inside the transmission
