Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9564J Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Fills, then nothing

I too have a top load Ultimate Care II machine - last night, when used it, it filled, then nothing. No motor sound, agitator, nothing. Just sits there. I've tried the dial in different positions, but no luck.
Help, please.

This is a symptom of a loose or defective lid switch. If you open and close the washer lid, you should hear the "clicking" sound of the lid switch as it is activated. If you do not hear anything, check to make the switch has not come loose. Sometimes a simple tightening of the mounting screws will re-align the switch to its proper location. If the switch is broken and does not function, click on the following link for advice on how to replace the lid switch for a Whirlpool washer.

Most lid switches are located on the right hand side of the wash tub opening under the rim of the external case. There will be a small hole where a plastic piece on the lid (called a lid strike) pushes down on a contact. Make sure the lid strike is not broken off. This will also cause the same symptoms.

On other models, the lid switch is located on the left-hand side in the by the hinge of the lid under the washer casing rim. This switch is out of view and is activated by a rod on the lid switch hinge. Sometimes the rod requires adjusting to correct a simple contact problem. NOTE: Your washer will not have the small opening on the right-hand side of the wash tub rim if equipped with this type of lid switch).

Please post back if you require further assistance. I hope this helps you.

I have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washer. It fills and agitates but it will not drain or spin. When it hits the spin cycle it sounds like a timer is going off but nothing happens. Does anyone have any...


The only thing I can think of for this is a worn coupling for the motor. Does the noise sound simmilar to a grinding sound? if thee is no noise from the motor then I would suspect the timer. I have had both of these go out on me and they seem to be common problems. I hop this helps.

My whirlpool ultimate II washing machine fills up and agitate but does not spin or drains the water out. how can I fix it.


You have a bad motor. Your washer is a direct drive machine. It turns in one direction to agitate and the other direction to both spin and to pump. You have lost one direction in your motor.

MY WHIRLPOOL LAUNDRY MACHINE WILL NOT AGITATE


If it just fills and stops dead then its probably the door switch.If it fills and you hear the motor start and it makes a horrible noise then its probably the coupling between the motor and transmission. Theres also a slight chance its a stripped agitator spline
