Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

2 Answers

The cycle doesn't advance prior to the rinse cycle, unless I bang the lid down. Sometimes takes a few trys then it starts up again and finishes out the cycle. Is my timer going out? Is this an expensive fix?? Should we think about getting a new washer? It is approx. Ten or Eleven years old.

Look on the lid. see where the prong is.
look on the washer where the prong goes. try to clean that spot, lots of times it's got a build up of lint . the initial wash cycle will moisten the build up preventing it to function properly.

Mommy20255 is spot on to the solution. The prong/latch assembly in my machine is broken. As it is wired into the machine, I will have to call a repairman, but she led me straight to the problem.

Top loader washing machine stops mid cycle and won't finish rinsing or spin cycle. Any ideas?


Check the lid closure switch. This keeps the unit from spinning if the top lid is open, as a safety interlock. The switch gets a lot of abuse, as the lid sometimes slams down and damages the switch. If the switch is damaged, the washer will stop before the final rinse, or spin, depending upon the model. This can be repaired, but takes a bit of work. I did mine myself, with great results. If you are not inclined in that direction, have it repaired. It costs far less than a new washer.

It wash and evacuate the water but doesn't spin at the end!! What can I do?


What happens over time is the lid gets a little bent from use , reason it wont start unless lid is put down is because there is a lid switch that is called a safety switch, you might have to bend down lid some or this: Ok, first check under the lid, there is a peg that goes into the top edge of the washer. That is a switch. The idea between this is that it is a safety feature for mostly kids, so that when the washer is on that high speed spin cycle, that a child does not open up lid and stick there arm or hand in and have it injured. Most washer are designed so that the washer will only spin when the washing machine lid is down. So, of course you have it down, but sometimes the lid might have got a little bent or warped. So first try with lid down pushing down on lid while on spin cycle. If still wont spin, most likely it is that switch that that peg goes into, if you take a knife or flat head screw driver, with lid up on spin cycle and push into that hole with the knife or flat head screw driver and do not here a click when pushing it and releasing it, then you need to replace that switch, it is pretty cheep, normally under 20 bucks and a appliance store and when picking up the part they can tell you exactly how to replace it yourself, it is pretty easy and only takes a few minutes. Hope this helps. Mike

Kenmore washing machine model 110 wash cycle stops


DOES IT DO THIS ON EVERY WASH OR SOMETIMES? IF SOMETIMES, CHECK LID SWITCH( THERE'S A LITTLE HOLE WHEN YOU OPEN THE LID, ON THE LID SHOULD HAVE A LITTLE PLASTIC PIECE THAT GOES IN THAT HOLE. THE SWITCH IS UNDER, INSIDE THAT HOLE. YOU CAN GET A PEN OR KEY TO SEE IF IT'S BROKEN.)

Maytag SAV5910aww will not always drain. Fills and agitates fine but will go through entire cycle without draining. Will sometimes give end of cycle buzz sometimes not. If I am in the room and lift the lid...


"I have found spinning the timer back to begining of rinse cycle first helps". The timer only rotates clockwise; counterclockwise rotation can destroy it.

Whirlpool Washer stalls out on rinse cycle


This is likely a lid switch problem. They tend to get weak and work sometimes and sometimes not. When it stalls like that try pushing down on lid and see if it kicks in. If so you need to replace the lid switch

Washer Doesn't move from cycle to cycle


this washer has a problem with the lid hinge screws coming loose. check the left hand hinge and you will find the screws loose.
this cause the lid switch to not engage and then nothing will happen until it thinks the lid is closed.
try to tighten the screws and listen to see if the switch "clicks" when you open and close the lid.
that should fix it until the screws come loose again.
