Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9564J Top Load Washer
The water fills fine during wash and rinse cycles.
However, agitator moves slowly and makes a grinding sound on wash cycle.
The agitator does not move at all on spin cycle but when the door is closed, a clickling sound is heard in the controls console.
Also, how do you get the water to drain if the spin cycle doesn't work?
It sounds like the dogs are worn. try twisting the agitator post by hand,it should move freely in one direction then lock up going the other.its a pretty easy fix if they are.pry off the top of the agitator post off then remove the cap inside,there is a bolt that holds the post down.i'm pretty sure it's 7/16 in. once the bolt is loose,lift the whole agitator out of machine and with your hand inside post turn it upside downand let the dog holder slide out.watch how the dogs fit into the holder, replace with new dogs and reverse the removal process.
if the machine wont spin, check the lid switch. thats usually the cause of a no spin situation.other than that a wet vac is your best bet.hope that helps.
