Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

1 Answer

My whirlpool ultimate care 2 washer was leaking underneath while running, I removed the back panel and dropped the drain hose to the floor and extended it out the door to the yard and while filling the tub noticed that it drains out the drain hose while filling. Does the drain hose need to extend up into the drain pipe so as not to drain while filling. Also, is the pump the likely culprit for the leak underneath while running? I could see no hose leaks under the unit.

The drain hose must be at least level with the top of the actual tub in the washer. The water pump is only bad if it is leaking. If it is leaking from the front you either have a cracked outer tub, but it sounds like your water pump, easy to change out just get the model # and order it through an appliance parts distributor. The cost is about 40 to 50 bucks. good luck!

Washer seems to be leaking during spin cycle.


If the water is gushing from the washer, check the small plastic air dome hose on the lower right hand side of the wash tub. Sometimes the hose can come loose and come off. This will cause the water to begin pouring out of the bottom of the the washer when it begins to fill. The following link has some other things you may consider as well:

The link explains how to remove the exterior washer case in order to accurately inspect the washer interior components for the source of your leak.
Another common source of leaks with Whirlpool manufactured top loaders is a leaking drain pump. These pumps are not serviceable and if damged, must be replaced. The following link explains how:

Don't forget to check all drain hose connections under the washer and the center tub seal.

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.

Whirlpool ultimate care 2, empties whilst filling. It dosent seem to be a leak but as though a valve is not working


You may have a condition known as siphoning. This is caused by the drain hose not being high enough off the floor, or not having a proper air gap in order to drain properly. This creates a suction and the washer will constantly drain as it tries to fill. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575830-how_to_prevent_washer_siphoning

In the majority of the cases, this problem is attributed to improper installation, rather than an actual problem with the washer. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Ultimate care supreme leaks underneath


First check the hoses to the machine. If they leak the water follows the hoses and drips on floor. Also check the hose connection at the washer. They will leak inside. Next it may well be a water pump going out or the plastic hose that is under pressure when operating. The pump is in the middle of machine underneth - Sorry - Good luck

I have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washing machine that is leaking water onto the floor. The water is not coming from the back of the machine. What do I need to look for and how do I get into the machine?...


I suspect you may have a drain pump leaking on your washer. The following link explains all the steps necessary to access and/or replace the pump (if required):

http://www.fixya.com/support/r397092-replacing_water_pump

If the leak isn't too bad, allow the tub to fill about 1/3 of the way and turn off and unplug. With the exterior case removed, you should be able to see where the leak is coming from. If the leak is coming from the front of the washer, its probably your drain pump or drain hoses. If the leak is coming from the center under the wash tub, you more than likely have a bad tub seal. If the leak is coming from the side of the wash tub, you probably have a loose air hose on the air dome (with this problem, the washer will begin to leak when the tub gets to about 1/4 full). Also check all your drain hose clamps to ensure they are tight. The only other thing that can cause leaks is a cracked wash tub (not real common).

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you narrow down your problem.

Oil and water leak


Chances are they are not related if the water is clean.These units can run quite a while dripping small amounts of oil. The drain hose is a possibility but there are other places it can leak from. Call a local tech he can run the machine with the cabinet removed and should be able to find the source of the water leak. good luck
