Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Whirlpool top load washer no low-speed agitation. The unit fills, starts the wash cycle with normal agitation, but after a few minutes it just sits there soaking until the it's time to drain/spin. Drains OK, spins OK, fills with rinse water but again just soaks - no agitation. Occurs on all cycles after initial wash period and during rinse. Lid switch is OK.

Either the wire going to motor for non working speed is loose or damaged, or motor is bad. It could also possibly be timer not sending power to motor for that speed.

SOURCE: whirlpool gold top load washer (7 months old) won't agitate or spin

It sounds like the motor drive coupler has broken. This means the motor is no longer turning the gearcase, but it is turning the pump. It will be repaired under warranty if it is only 7 months old. You should have a full one year warranty on the washer. If not, he can probably fix it, but it will need a new coupler. He can tilt the machine back and see the coupler between the motor and transmission from underneath. I can walk you through replacing it if you want, but I wouldn't recommend it if it is still under warranty. There could possibly be something more major wrong that has caused it to break and some of the factory servicers are real picky about customers working on a machine under warranty. If you need it running tonight, he may be in trouble.

Post back if you need further help or have more questions.

Thanks/mike

SOURCE: Kenmore 20702 Top Load Washer Problem

First check the lid switch. Its a little slot inside the top panel and when the door is closed it has a prong that pushes the switch down when closed. It is a safety feature. If you can find this press the slot with a screwdriver or something and listen for a clicking sound.It is also possible that one of the wires has come off, so that may need to be looked at too. Also check the lid to see if the prong has been broken off. If you have both of these things checking good, then it may be a more complicated issue like power to the wig wag coils, or a timer. We can however eliminate the motor, belt and water pump as these all work. I would put my money on a simple lid switch problem though.

SOURCE: My Whirlpool washer won't agitate or spin . But it does drain the water.

i also had the same problem, and it ended up being the coupler. It was not hard to replace, it cost me about 19.00. I didn't follow full recomende instructions. I tipped the washer backwards. Removed the drain pump and the motor itself. Then I removed the old coupling and placed the new one. The washer is working like new...

Kenmore 700 series top loader washer. I put it on the normal cycle, the washer fills and agitates for a few minutes (maybe 5) then drains only to fill back up and finish the cycle. Is this normal?


no
some cycle the agitator during the fill cycle to get better distribution of the clothes as it is filling and then shut of the water and proceed to the wash cycle
have a technician check out the program board

Washer fills and agitates will start to pump and spin then stops let sit for a few minutes and it will try to spin again replaced both belts this is a maytag top loading about 8 yrs old


Either the program switch or the transmission has failed. The transmission is probably a lousy Whirlpool part and have had them fail in only a few years of light service. To eliminate the program switch, use a different cycle setting to see if it can complete any of those available. If not, then it's probably the transmission.

KENMORE ELITE TOP LOAD

Washer stops, won't fill, rinse or agitate


• Check the following:
Is the power cord plugged into a grounded 3 prong outlet?
Is the indicator on the Cycle Control knob properly lined up
with a cycle? Turn the Cycle Control knob to the right slightly
and pull to start.
Are the water inlet valve screens clogged?
Are both the hot and cold water faucets turned on?
Is the water inlet hose kinked?

• Does the water level seem too low, or does the washer
appear to not fill completely? The top of the agitator is
much higher than the highest water level. This is normal and
necessary for clothes to move freely.
• Has a fuse blown or is the circuit breaker open? If problem
continues, call an electrician.
• Are you using an extension cord? Do not use an extension
cord.
• Is the washer in a normal pause in the cycle? The washer
pauses for about 2 minutes during certain cycles. Allow the
cycle to continue. Some cycles feature periods of agitation
and soak.
• Is the washer overloaded? Wash smaller loads.
• Is the lid open? The lid must be closed during operation.
Washer will not agitate or spin with the lid open.
