Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Drips from center of front cover when filling at 3-4 inches

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Top loader about 4 yrs. old. Unit drips when idle. Drips when tub is filling. Does not drip when washing. Only one drip when spinning is done, mid cycle.

I took cover off. Top does not come off. I find nothing in front to leak. Pump and all seems dry underneath. No leak found on any hoses and the filler spout looks good. Suspeceted foam gasket on top of the plastic tub where top snaps down. Coated the cover well with 100% silicone and snapped it back on. The next day the same problem is there.

Since the tub is plastic I am wondering if it may have developed a hairline crack that I am not seeing. Anyone seen this problem?

    Dear Bozcro,

    I went to my tool box and got my pocket extension morror. With a flash light and looking closely. I saw a steady drip from the bottom of the white plastic and the metal band. After taking the machine out onto the deck, I took the screws and retaing clips off. The front, top and side covers then lifted right off. Sure enough now that I have good light and open space I see the white plastic was the pump, and the metal band is the lower attaching spring. I just losened the hose clamps, popped the sprongs off. Now off to the local used appliance/repair store for a new pump. Thanks Bro!

After carefully reading this, the leak is at the machines water valves, or from them to hose to tub.

Whirpool Ultimate Care II washer - drips


Your water inlet valve is leaking through. Turn off the water. Remove the hoses from the washer. Clean the sediment screens in the water valve and replace the hose.
If that does not solve the leak through problem,the water inlet valve will have to be replaced.
Use the attached video to show how to access the inside of the washer in the event the water valve needs replacing.

Hello, you may have a small drip from the pump or a small drip from the hose that goes from the pump to the rear of the cabinet. To make sure you will have to run the unit with the cabinet removed. A local service tech can remove the cabinet quicklyand isolate the leak.
