Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9564J Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer stops in the middle of a load

I started a new load and the machine began to fill with water but then nothing. I tried changing the settings on the controls and the only thing it will do is continue to fill if you hold the load size control dial in a certain position. Other than that, nothing, no sound, no movement.

Than aggitator can move by hand, it has water supply and electricity, we have done several loads today until this one stopped the machine.

This is a common symptom of a defective lid switch. If you try opening and closing the lid and do not hear a distinctive "clicking" sound, your lid switch may need to be replaced. Some lid switches are located on the right-hand side of the lid opening with a small slot. It is activated by a plastic piece called a “lid strike” on the lid itself. Make sure the lid strike is not broken off. This will keep the switch from not working. On some model washers the lid switch is located on the left-hand side, in the rear, mounted under the casing near the lid hinge. It is activated by a rod on the lid hinge. Sometimes the rod can be adjusted if it is not making good contact with the switch. In either case, if the switch is not activated, it will allow the washer to fill and maybe agitate, but will not start the rinse or drain cycles. If you diagnose it and wish to attempt the repair yourself, the switch costs about $25 and is fairly simple to replace if you follow the steps on the link below:

The fill switch is bad. That's the only "safety" on the washer that will shut the water off after reaching desired depth. To test it, run your machine on the various water levels. For example, start out on the low setting. If the water doesn't shut off after the tub is half full, then it's the fill switch inside the unit next to the tub.

if you are saying that the washer finishes the load of clothes and timer goes to off and water is filling the tub after this then you have a bad water valve on the back of the washer.disconnect the water lines and change out the valve

Washing machine was working fine, but leaking water from the bottom. took it to a repairman, he said pumpwas stopped up and he replaced it. hooked it up and it fills with water but it will not start, wont...


if the washer machine idetifies the levels of water (ex low middle high) means that pressure switch works

there are two things!!!!
the switch's door is not working or the switch's timer also doesnt work

if the washer machine doesn't idetifies the levels of water does the problem

CHECK ALL THIS AND CHANGE WHAT IS NECESSARY!!!!!

Won't stop filling. When I go through the cycles it continues to fill until I reach the final spin cycle then it will start draining and spin out.


Two common problems for this simptom:

If water stops filling when you disconnect the washer:
Change the pressure switch.
If water keeps coming in after you disconnect the washer:
Change the water valve.

GOOD LUCK MY FRIEND
