Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer
We have a whirlpool Ultimate Care 11 3RLSQ8000JQ5
The machine sticks when it gets to rinse and the water only trickles into the machine and takes about 3hrs to fill the drum there is a humming sound while it does this
Does anyone have any idea what the fault may be?
Thanks in advance
This is commonly caused by a water inlet valve that has become clogged with sediment over time. If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you are using well water, the inlet valve sediment screens and/or the fill hose screens can become clogged with calcium or rust sediment. You can check the sediment screens and clean them with a 50/50 solution of distilled vinegar and hot water to dissolve any sediment and flush with hot water. However, if the water flow is still weak, you may need to replace the inlet valve. The following link explains how:
You can also refer to this link to remove the valve and allow it to soak in some sediment dissolving solution, such as the distilled vinegar I mentioned, or by using a commerical solution (such as CLR). If you decide to remove the valve and try this, only submerge the valve ports. Do not submerge the solenoid electrical connections.
CAUTION: Some of these commerical solutions give off strong vapors and odors. Use in a well ventilated area.
If you are going to go the route of removing the valve, however, it may make better sense to simply replace it, rather than running the chance of having to repeat these steps again, if cleaning doesn't work.
Replacement parts can be purchased at any of the following websites:
Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. the first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
