Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9564J Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Whirlpool Imperial Fabric Softener leaks out during the initial wash. I replaced the "dogs" and basically the whole interior of the agitator a few years back, but recently noticed the fabric softener level drops to empty as the washer begins to agitate.

    Thanks, I filled the softener bin with water, and 20 minutes later, it's still full.

With the machine off and empty, fill the softner bin with water only. Does the water level go down or stay the same.

How remove agitator cup to replace dogears on a kenmore elite washing machine


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

If the bottom agitates and not the top, the problem is likely the 4 "agitator dogs" designed to allow the top agitator to turn only one way.

Look at the section on the Sears site for Agitator, basket and tub.

See the part "Dog, agitator "

Remove the fabric softener unit, lift the top agitator cap (use a screwdriver) and you should see a plastic part in the center of the top agitator with a 1/2" square drive.

Remove the drive and lift off the top agitator. Turning it over you should see the 4 "dogs", replace these and the top agitator should turn in one direction only.

Replace the 1/2" drive, the cap and fabric softener unit and the top agitator should work.

Also see the following illustrated description of the above.

Agitator Dogs


take the cap or fabric softener dispenser off the top of the agitator. under it should be a clear plastic cap with a little handle on it. take it out. under it should be a bolt (7/16) with a rubber seal under it, take it out and this will release the agitator and you will see the plastic dogs inside the agitator.

We have a modle # LLR7144DQ0 - the agitator is not working properly. It is not pulling the clothes down into the water.


The agitator 'dog ears' have worn out. Very easy to replace.
  • Remove fabric softener or protective cap on top of agitator
  • Remove center bolt securing agitator.
  • Lift out agitator and replace dog ears.
