Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Same whirlpool ultimate care 2 gripe.

I'm not sure how this works, am I talking to you ronnie204? Oh well, it's good therapy in any case. Does your machine agitate? The way my problem started was about 5 minutes into the wash cycle, it just started making a buzzing sound when the machine should have been agitating or spining. Unlike my computer, car, sprinklers....problems, there doesn't seem to be all that much help out there for washing machines on the net, but I will not pay the people I bought it from 3 1/2 yrs ago $50 to listen to it and tell me it'll be $200 for a new transmission/motor ect..So it's either fix this one or the cheapest replacement I can find, because it appears Whirlpool does not build em like they used to!
Sorry, enough venting, all my research pointed to the coulping, the only way I could check it out was to put it on car jack stands, fill it with as little water as possible and look from underneath. it still made the buzzing sound with the agitator moving very slow & short with both halfs of the coupling moving, but very slowly. I was trying to find out what the normal RPM for the motor should be for spin and agitate cycles, but no joy. All I can think of is either the transmision is binding (not likely, since the coupling didn't shear) or theres a motor controller not sending the right signal (to go faster) to the motor.
Anyway, any idea's or data you can share would be greatly appreciated, maybe togeather we can fix these machines.

Thanks, Good luck, Tim

Sounds like the run winding is out on the motor BTW the whole cabniet comes off the unit so you dont need to put it up on jack stands

    Whirlpool Ultimate Care II drum does not spin.

    Depending on your washing machine model, the drum and motor are connected by 2 plastice yellow circular pieces, with a black rubber washer in the middle with holes where the pegs or rods go into. The 2 plastic circular pieces have 3 pegs or rods if you will, that connect to the black rubber washer via 3 holes. Sometimes, one or both of the 2 plastic circular piece pegs get broken off or the rubber washer cracks and breaks apart, so that the motor will not turn the drum. If thats the case, you can purchase the 2 circular pieces and black washer piece as a set.

    Whirlpool Ultimate Care II spins only once in a while :-)

    hi there,

    sounds like the timer switch. the switch is mechanical, so it's quite easily replacable.

    also, the overfilling is a result of the pressure switch no engaging. this switch senses the water level and once it's up to capacity, it will shut off the water supply into the tub. check the switch and switch wire to make sure it's working correct. this switch is also mechanical and easy to fix.

    let me know if i can be of more help.
