Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

1 Answer

My whirlpool washer agitates but only the bottom half of the clinder rotates. The upper half doesn't. I opened up the top part of the clinder and unscrewed the plastic part, and I notices that there was teeth like gear on the bottom half and nothing for it to grind to. Is there something missing like a gasket or something?

Agator doesn't work


Is this a whirlpool washer? The agitator dogs need to be replaced. Remove top cap on agitator, then plastic cover inside it, then remove bolt, then pull agitator off. Top can separate from bottom by standing on bottom and pulling up on upper. Go to Repairclinic.com to find agitator dogs.

Agitator won't move


Thes units have litlle plastic dogs that make the agitator agitate, and when they break it will stop.
Remove the agitator and inside there are 3 to 4 plastic dogs or ears and these are more than likely bad.
Pry the agitator cap off by inserting a screwdriver into the cap's notch

2) Pull the inner cap (if present) off - many Whirlpool machines use this inner cap, with a handle, to gain access to the center bolt

3) Remove the bolt in the center of the agitator (earlier models used a 7/16" hex-head steel bolt)
On older models, grasp the bottom portion of the agitator and pull the entire assembly out of the washer. (Some recent models allow just the top portion's removal to access these 'dogs')

5) Older models - place the agitator on the floor, and, standing carefully on the bottom portion, pull the top half off. Turn it over, and the dogs will be accessible for replacement.

6) Newer model dogs can be replaced once just the ratchet ***'y is removed. There are several versions currently in use, but most can be replaced without removing the bottom agitator half. All '4-dog' versions use the 285770 (or #80040) kit, regardless of the cam ***'y style. (Really old agitators, rarely seen now, used a pair of 2 larger dogs, which are a different part number)

7) On older versions, be careful to align the two tabs when inserting the upper ***'y back onto the agitator bottom half. When these are aligned, they will friction-fit the two halves together, making it easier to reinstall the ***'y. Handle it only by the bottom half to prevent pulling the top half off when reinstalling.

8) Lightly lubricate the agitator cap's rubber gasket using a bit of dishwasher detergent, and push it back into place. (On the Whirlpools with an inner cap, lube that cap's o-ring too - makes it easier to snap into place)dcramer531_112.jpg

    Need to replace the agitator dogs and can't remove the mover from the bottom section


    Direct drive Whirlpool washing machines use a two piece agitator. In-between the two pieces there are cogs, sometimes referred to as "dogs," which will wear out. When the dogs start to wear, you will notice a clicking sound and the top agitator will not move as it should. When you learn how to replace the agitator dogs on a Whirlpool washing machine, you can have your Whirlpool working correctly again. Agitator dogs are available at appliance repair facilities.

    * 1

    Disconnect the Whirlpool washer from the wall outlet. Open the washer lid to access the agitator.

    * 2

    Insert a flathead screwdriver in the notch in the agitator cap. Twist the screwdriver to pop the agitator cap off of the agitator. If your model has an inner cap, remove the inner cap by pulling up on the handle and removing it from the agitator.

    * 3

    Use a socket wrench to remove the bolt in the center of the agitator. Most Whirlpool washers use a 7/16-inch bolt to secure the agitator.

    * 4

    Grab the bottom of the agitator with both hands and pull it straight up out of the wash tub. Do not have your face directly over the agitator. If it is stuck or pops up too quickly you could injure yourself.

    * 5

    Set the agitator on the floor and carefully place your feet on each side of the agitator. Grasp the top of the agitator and pull the top half of the agitator off of the bottom half. Turn the top half over to access the dogs.

    * 6

    Use needle nose pliers to pull the dogs out of the agitator. Install the replacement dogs into the agitator according to the specifications given the manufacturer.

    * 7

    Set the top half of the agitator back on to the bottom half. Make sure to align the two tabs together between the halves so that they will friction fit. Grab the bottom of the agitator and apply a thin coat of dishwashing detergent on the rubber gasket on the bottom using your finger.

    * 8

    Set the agitator back into the wash tub and secure it using the retaining bolt. If your model had an inner cap, set the inner cap back into the agitator until it snaps into place.

    * 9

    Place the top of the agitator into place and press down until it locks into place.

    The top half of the agitater does not work it just


    There are small plastic parts called "dogs" that wear out. The agitator needs pulled apart and those dogs replaced. It is fairly simple to do.

    Problem for Whirlpool LXR9445JT Top Load Washer Whirlpool top-loader LSQ9200LQ0 The top half og the agitator is not turning.


    Whirlpool has a split agitator design. The upper portion is called the auger, while the bottom is called the agitator. Between these components is a agitator cam assembly. This problem is commonly caused by worn agitator dogs or the agitator cam assembly. The following link explains what the dogs are and how to replace them:

    http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608577-replacing_agitator_dogs

    The part number is included in the link provided. You can purchase replacements at pcappliancerepair.com for about $5. For a little more you can purchase the entire cam replacement kit, which includes the cam, the thrust bearing, and the dogs. For the model number you have listed, the part number for the kit is 285811 and sells for about $11.

    NOTE: You can refer to the excellent exploded view parts diagrams the web site has to offer for assistance. Whirlpool also recommends the application of a little grease on the thrust washer. The part number for their recommended grease is AP3098553.

    If you have any questions about this repair, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

    NOTE: DO NOT overtighten the agitator bolt. This can cause damage to the plastic, or restrict the agitator movement. Tighten until snug only.

    My whirlpool ultimate care 2 washer works great, however, the agitator misses and clicks before it catches up


    Is this a two piece agitator? You may just need dogs, they are inside the agitator. Rotate the top of the agitator back and forth, top should engage the bottom portion when turning counter clockwise.

    One part of agitator moves the other part doesnt.


    Two-Piece Agitator: Bottom Works, Top Does Not - Whirlpool brands

    Some Whirlpool brands washing machines employ a two piece agitator. The bottom is call the agitator and the top is usually referred to a 'Mover'. A multi-piece cam and bearing assembly connects the two and allows the top portion to index.

    If the bearing or cams become stripped or damaged, the mover will often not work. Fortunately, Whirlpool produces a cost effective agitator repair kit that replaces all of the critical components in this cam assembly. There are three different repair kits. They differ in the height of the cam.

    Agitator Removal Instructions:


    Remove Dispenser or Cap:
    Some models of washing machines utilize a fabric softener dispenser that resides on top of the agitator. This dispenser simply snaps onto the top of the agitator. Other styles utilize a decorative cap. To remove the dispenser, simply grab it and firmly pull up. To remove the agitator cap, insert a small flat-head screw driver into the seam between the agitator cap and the upper agitator (mover). Use a twisting or prying action to pop the cap off of the agitator.

    Remove Internal Debris Cap:
    Inside the agitator you will see a cap with a raised handle, much like that of your automobile. Simply reach into the agitator and twist the cap while pulling up. This will remove the cap and its o-ring.

    Remove Agitator Stud:
    When looking into the agitator assembly, you will notice a single nut in the center of the agitator. Use a socket kit or nut driver to remove this bolt (agitator stud).

    Remove the Upper Agitator (Mover):
    With the bolt removed you should be able to remove the upper half of the agitator (mover) by simply pulling up. Sometimes pulling up will actually remove the whole agitator assembly. If this happens, place the Lower Agitator on the floor and stand on the flat lip. Then Pull up to separate the Upper Agitator (mover) from the Lower Agitator.

    Remove the Cam and Clutch Dogs:
    When you remove the upper agitator (mover) it contains the cam and clutch dogs. Tun the assembly upside down. The cam and dogs should then come out.

    -- Stop Here if Replacing Cam Kit --

    Remove O-ring:
    The lower agitator remains on the transmission shaft. On the top of the agitator, there is an o-ring. Remove this o-ring.

    Pull the Lower Agitator:
    All that remains is the lower agitator. This can be removed by simply pulling straight up on the agitator.


    Agitator Installation Instructions:

    Set Lower Agitator:
    Slide the lower agitator onto the transmission shaft. Rotate the lower agitator until the splines in the shaft match those in the agitator. Once aligned press the agitator down. Install the o-ring into the top of the lower agitator.

    -- Start Here if Replacing Cam Kit --

    Assemble Cam and Dogs:
    Turn the cam upside down. Place the small round ear of the dog into the corresponding slot on the cam. Repeat this for each of the four cams.

    Install Cam and Dogs into Upper Agitator:
    Invert the Upper Agitator (mover) and slide the cam/dog assembly inside. The cam should be pushed into the mover until it shoulders. Then rotate the whole assembly upright.

    Install the Upper Agitator (Mover) on the Lower Agitator:

    The lower agitator has two tabs that stick up that are 180 degrees apart. These tabs fit into two slots on the bottom of the cam. Align the matching tabs and slots and place the Upper Agitator (mover) and cam assembly onto the lower agitator. Push down until the cam snaps onto the Lower Agitator. If the dogs fall out during this step it is necessary to return to the 'Assemble Cam and Dogs' section above and start over.

    Install the Agitator Stud:
    Place the bolt (agitator stud) into the hole in the bottom center of the cam. Use a socket kit or nut driver to tighten the bolt .

    Install Internal Debris Cap:
    Install the o-ring into the groove on the OD of the debris cap. With the o-ring in place, push the cap into the Upper Agitator (mover). It is important that the cap is pushed past the ports in the Upper Agitator (mover) so that the wash water can enter and exit as designed.

    Install the Dispenser or Cap:
    The final step is to replace the top cap. Both the cap and the dispenser simply snap into place. Just make sure they are installed as far down a they will go and are firmly in place.
