Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

1 Answer

My machine runs for 5 seconds and stops for 15 minutes

My machine will fill with water and then just stop and it sounds as if it is going to start the cycle then it just stops. 15 minutes later it will click on for a few seconds then stops again. When it does click back on for those few seconds the lights in th house will dim just a bit. I checked all of the hoses it does not appear to have a clog. It clicks when I close down the top loader. I am not sure what else it could be.

Knob won't work

Easy check for water filling problem like yours. Unplug the power and see if water still flows into machine. If yes----your inlet valve on the washer is stuck open and needs replaced. It is the part on the washer back where your fill hoses attach to. If the water is flowing into the machine while plugged in and it stops when unplugged, you have something in the control panel sending power to that inlet valve even when the machine is off. You would now need to find out where the power is coming from. If its an electronic control washer, the main board may need replaced.

Washing machine stopped and says "sud". What does that mean?


During Drain Routine

During the Drain Routine, the water level is checked continuously. Normal drain will occur until the

pressure switch senses no water in the wash tub and there is no foam (suds). The drain pump will

operate an additional 15 seconds after the pressure switch reports no water or foam.

If the drain routine operates for four (4) minutes and the pressure switch senses any foam (suds) in

the wash tub, the Central Control Unit will start the "Kill-Foam" Routine. (See description of this

Routine below.) After the Kill-foam Routine is concluded, the Drain Routine will restart. If, after

four (4) minutes the pressure switch still senses foam in the wash tub, the Central Control Unit will

go into Failure Mode. The digital display will show, F02.

During Spin (Extract) Routine

During the Spin/Extract Routine the water level is checked continuously. If, during this routine, the

pressure switch senses the presence of foam (suds) in the wash tub, the Central Control Unit will

stop the drive motor and the basket will stop spinning. The electronic control will count the number

of spin repetitions that are attempted due to foam (suds). There are a maximum of three (3)

attempts for each Spin/Extract Routine.

Kill-Foam Routine

1. The Remaining Time counter is stopped.

2. The digital display shows Sud.

3. The Drain Pump is turned OFF.

4. The Central Control Unit will fill the wash tub with 1 gal. (4 L) of cold water.

5. While the tub is filling the basket will tumble 1 sec. ON/15 Sec. OFF.

6. Once the tub is filled, the drive motor will turn OFF and the basket will rest without any

movement for five (5) minutes.

7. After the five (5) minute rest, the remaining time counter will restart and the digital display

will show the remaining time left in the routine.

NOTE: If the Kill-Foam routine was initiated during a Spin/Extract Routine, the tumbling action

will be reduced to a cycle of 3 sec. ON/13 sec. OFF. If, at the end of either the Drain or Spin/

Extract Routines, a suds condition still remains, the digital display will show Sud.

Sud will also be displayed for a short period at the end of a cycle, if a Suds condition was

detected during the cycle. This will alert the consumer to reduce the amount of detergent in
subsequent uses.

Water is not pumped away, or stops in the middle of a cycle and displays one of a several error messages

Recall the error codes by activating the Automatic Diagnostic Test Mode to determine the cause of the problem. Select any one button, except Power, Start, and Stop, and follow this:
Press and hold the button for 3 seconds>Release the button for 3 seconds>Press and hold the button for 3 seconds>Release the button for 3 seconds>Press and hold the button for 3 seconds

All of the indicators on the console will light up for 5 seconds while 88 is displayed on the Estimated Time Remaining display. If not, repeat the step. Let us know if it cannot be activated.

The program then checks for any saved error codes after 5 seconds. List down the codes and post it back here. The console indicators will turn off then on with the 88 displayed if no error codes are recalled. After 5 seconds, the automatic test begins. The program performs a four-minute automatic test to check major washer functions. Press the same selected button in activating the automatic test above to advance through the automatic test steps.

  1. C0: The motor goes to a slow spin.
  2. C1: Warm water fills through the fresh dispenser and basket floats then disengage.
  3. C2: Cold water fills through the bleach valve for 10 seconds.
  4. C3: Hot water fills through the fabric softener valve for 10 seconds.
  5. C4: Warm water fills through the detergent valve for 10 seconds.
  6. C5: Agitates for 15 seconds.
  7. C6: Recirculates for 10 seconds.
  8. C7: Drains to engage basket and drain further for 10 seconds.
  9. C8: Drains and spins slowly.
  10. C9: Coasts to stop.
  11. Press the Stop or Power button to cancel/exit the test.
Inform us about the result of the test for the repair guide if necessary.

Your motor/clutch combo is on the way out. The motor is overheating and turning off. Cools down and restarts.
You need a new motor/clutch combo or a new washer. I do not recommend another GE.

Fisher and paykel smart drive top loader , Wont fill properly .

Well where to start .....
This brand has a hell of a lot of quirks.
The first thing to try is this : With the power on at the wall and the machine off ,push and hold down the start button , then push and hold down the power button you may hear up to 3 beeps at this time (hold down the buttons for 5 seconds then release) turn machine off and turn it back on and just push start button.
What this does is re programes the computer ,then just leave machine to run cycle

Keeps stopping after 10 seconds of operation

Motor is bad and needs to be replaced. It is drawing too many amps and tripping its overload. Once cool it will run again only to stop. About $100 for the motor.

Laundry washing machine

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.
