Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer
Whirlpool (model # LXR6232EQO)
when the machine fills up to begin washing and when it fills up to rinse....the water fails to shut off and thus floods over the tub and onto the floor. YIKES! sounds like some kind of relay /switch is not telling the the thing "enough already" can you help steer me in the right direction?
This is usually a symptom of a pressure switch malfunction. The pressure switch is located in the operator console behind the load (or water) level knob. It is cylindrical in shape and
has an electrical connection and an air hose attached to it. In many
cases, the only problem is that the air hose has come loose and fallen
off the fitting on the pressure switch. All you have to do is reattach it. HINT: placing a small zip tie around the air hose where it connects onto the pressure switch will create enough resistance to keep the hose from vibrating loose again. Just a snug fit will do. Over tightening can break the fitting on the pressure switch. You will need to open the
console and inspect it. To open the console, it comes off in a few
different ways depending on the year and model of the washer:
1. If you have removable end caps on the console, they simply pry off by lifting from the the back exposing a screw under either end. Remove the screws and the console lifts up.
2. If the end caps do not come off, place a putty knife in the front corner of either end of the console where it meets the washer top and push in while lifting up. This depresses a retaining clip and the console will lift up.
3. Some consoles have a screw located on either side in the back that you need to remove and it will then lift up.
Be careful when you lift the console. There are small plastic hinges holding it in place and they can break if you aren't careful. Place the console in its resting position by laying it over the back of the washer. The pressure switch will be easily accessible. Double check the hose like I previously stated and double check to make sure all the electrical connections are in place.
If you check the switch and find that everything is in place as it should be, you may have to replace the switch. Post back with your COMPLETE model number (located around the rim of the washer tub opening) and I can track down a part number for you.
I hope this helps.
