Re: whirpool Ultimate care II

I have played with the machine at length today... In the hope that if this was merely a blockage, I could move it...

If I go to a spin cycle, the machine begins to work normally, bringing in some water and then spinning slowly... It seems then, that the pump does not engage, thus leaving the water in the drum and not allowing the machine to speed up to a full speed spin.

If I enpty the machine using gravity to drain the water, the spin runs normally.

Obviously draining manually is not viable during a wash cycle. Is it possible that there is a switch for the pump, which is in need of replacement, or is this a requirement to replace the pump.

Whirpool washer will fill with water, but not complete the cycle

Ok, you will need to replace the timer/control. this device initiates the wash sequence and, if it is damaged in any way, the wash cycle may be interrupted at anytime. simply replacing the timer will fix this issue.

Stops in the middle of wash cycle


If the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II keeps taking water.

ck your drain nose/drainline, chances are you have along hose, perhaps even draining along the floor behind hte unit, into a "closed" drain system. in which cawee the wwater is syphoning out during the rinse cycle, youlll needt o raise the drain hose to above 48" and have it drain into a stand pipe to prevent siphoning effect

Washing machine stops working

I search in the internet on regards to the problems with the Whirpool Ultimate Care II and found out that many others had the same problem as I did. Some solved this issue replacing the switch, so i decided to do the same.
I opened the machine and saw that the switch was not working properly, it was not doing any contact, so whenever I open or closed the lid, nothing was happening. I did a house fixing, with some duck tape i was able to make the system work, and now the machine is washing everything again.

Ultimate II is refusing to go into agtation/wash cycle

It sounds like a bad timer unit, and possibly a lid switch.

As far as the water overfilling, that may be an unrelated problem, such as the water level switch... but most likely the timer.

I have the same model, and it wouldn't drain.. and it would try to spin when full of water... an interesting sight to see!
