Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Trans will not disengage

Greetings. This is a great resource. I appreciate your presence of the web. My WUC II started making a sound that can best be described as the agitator mechanism being slightly engaged during the spin cycle. About a week ago, the top half of the agitator (the screw) stop operating, even though the paddle assembly onthe bottom did function normally. Now, the machine will not spin. Placing the unit in the spin mode, one can see the basket "trying" to move, but the trans seems to be engaged yet, but not moving.

The motor works fine. and there's no problems with the pump ***'y. I've removed the outer cabinet, pump and motor to access the mechanisms. I can not easily move the inned coupling. I really can't afford a new or replacement unit. I'm pretty handy and feel with you guidance, I can affect the repair myself--providing nothing is actually broken.

Thank you

Either you have something stuck betwwen the two tubs(ie. a sock. ) preventing the tub from free spinning.or there is a clutch mounted on top of the transmission not engaging, as far the agitator not spinning correctly sounds liek the agitaor dawgs are stripped preventing proper agitaing(bottom of agitator works fine but upper portion free spins both ways without resistance?? correct??

GE Profile WPRE6100G Top Load Washer My washer is 2 yrs old and has started to make a loud metalic banging noise during the wash cycle. It does not during the spin cycle. Doesn't seem to matter whether...


Hi!!
The "Metallic banging/clicking" sound you hear is the Shifter mechanism engaging or disengaging.
The drive system will engage at the start of the Agitate Cycle and disengage when the Agitate Cycle is complete. This occurs multiple times during the wash. GE claims this is a normal sound and should not be concerned about it. Check page 10 of your Operating Manual, if you do not have a manual, click on this link to download one http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-90323.PDF

Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.
