Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer
The drum does not spin on the spin cycle but the water does drain out.
Will the unit agitate? If it does it could be the solenoid which disengages the agitate cycle on the transmission or the lid micro switch. Lift the top of the unit off using force pulling forward and up at the same time. The top should be hinged at the back allowing you to test the switch with and ohm meter or by shorting out the switch by touching the two leads together then trying the spin cycle. Be careful to keep your hands and body clear of the moving tub and other parts. If it works replace the switch or if it did not remove the short on the two switch leads. If the switch tested good you can look at the bottom of the unit where the transmission and motor are located. Look for a coil with wires and a connector that is attached to a shaft going to the transmission located under the tub. Use a volt meter to check if the coil has voltage during the spin cycle while being careful of moving parts. If you do not have a meter turn of the washer use a wood nonconductive stick to manually engage the solenoid then remove the stick and turn the unit on to spin close the lid and see if it spins. If yes replace the solenoid.

You have a bad coupling. It is between the transmission and the motor.
