Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Water, water everywhere

I have a two fold problem: When starting my machine it begins agitating while filling with water even when the lid is up. Secondly it fills with water even when on the 'spin only' setting. There doesn't seem to be any strange noise coming from the machine.

Any help would be apprieciated. Thanks!

One piece agitator wraps cloths


When loading the machine, load towels, sheets or jeans with an accordion fold instead of putting the laundry in a circle around the agitator. It helps to put the clothes in at the twelve o'clock position, then six o'clock, then nine o'clock and then three o'clock. Repeat this sequence until the washer is full.
The laundry can circulate much better and get cleaner too.

Sears washer dryer commbo model 417.94712400 didn't stop filling with water and water went everywhere


Generally you could have two problems. Number one may be a sticking water solonoid that doesn't want to close after the fill cycle has stopped. Number two, if the machine has not started to agitate the clothes that means the timer has not reached that part of the cycle and is stuck in the fill mode. My guess is number two would be more likley, the timers **** out nowand then. Hope that helps

There is a musty smell in the maytag washer even b4 I fill it with water, I've disconneted the hoses & flushed with bleach that did not take care of it,Iv'e run washes without clothes in it...


When a moldy or musty smell develops in a washing machine, many times the smell is coming from the open areas of the agitator. Water along with soap and/or liquid softener sometimes splashes into an open agitator, and when the lid is closed it does not dry out. Instead, mold begins to form, and a musty smell wafts from inside the machine, even after the lid has been opened for an extended period of time. Until the mold is removed the washing machine will continue to smell bad, even if it is used and allowed to air dry with the lid open.The tub can also be the source of the smell. Lint can gather and collect in the holes, and when it does not dry fast enough it ends up smelling musty and moldy. Even the top of the rim can become moldy and musty, but proper cleaning can get rid of the odor.

So that said.To clean the machine,fill to just above the top row of holes in the tub.Add 2 cups of bleach.Let sit for 1-2 hours.Then let the machine run it`s wash cycle.Lastly use bleach water and a rag to wipe the machine down inside and out.If the agitator has a cup on top remove and clean with bleach.Leave the top open so the machine can dry.

Now it should smell better,if so use as normal,and leave the lid open when not in use.

Agitator starts before water fills. When adjusting


There may actually be more than one setting on the diaphragm control, or you may two diaphragms each with their own setting control. I hope this helps you! Good luck!

Agitator starts at begining of cycle before washer is full


Please be carful as running the agitator without enough water will overheat and kick out the motor, however it should be ok when it resets itself.
Yes, the machine should stop agitating when you lift the lid so this too is part of the problem.
After looking at the print I can only suggest that the cam contacts in the timer ( contacts 12 and 14) that start the motor are burned and stuck together.

No water gets in to the machine


ou should turn the dial to spin with lid closed for a full minuite, or blow on the tube at the water level switch. If problem persist replace water valve, if machine is agitating w/o water replace water level switch.

Washer will not agitate. After starting the washer the water will begin to fill but when it's time for the agitator to begin it shuts the whole machine off.


If the lid lifts up from the front, tighten the hinge screws on both sides of the lid. If the screws are tight open and close the lid..listen for a click.. no click..lid switch is bad.
