Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer
We have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Top Washer, approx 2-3 years old, and recently it started whining during the spin and now water is appearing under the front of the washer. Even after the wash is done, and sat overnight, there was a small amount of water in front of the washer. I checked the hoses in back and nothing was wet. Any assistance you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

If the water is appearing in the front of the washer, you may have a leak in the drain pump. The link I'm posting below gives step-by-step instructions on how to replace the drain pump.
If it is not the drain pump, at least this gives you the necessary instruction on how to access the cabinet interior to inspect it properly. A whining noise could be something caught in the pump, or something stuck between the wash tub and outer basket. In order to run the washer with the case removed, you will need to by-pass the lid switch. this accomplished by jumpering the two BLACK wires on the lid switch connector at the timer. CAUTION: Unplug the washer before connecting the jumper wires. Then, plug back in and start the washer. Fill on the lowest setting and look for leaks.
NOTE: The drain pump is not serviceable and must be replaced if leaking.
I hope this helps you. Let me know if you have further questions.
