Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Whirlpool washer Mod# TWAS750PQO, Ser# CR3520005

Washer filled normally and when it started the wash cycle it made a very loud grinding sound. I shut it down immediately. I used the spin cycle to empty the washer and that worked fine. I tried the rinse cycle and that worked fine. It just made noise on the start cycle. The agitator was working while it made the noise.

My wife put some items in the washer later and just ran the rinse cycle and the washer worked fine. Later that evening she decided to try the wash cycle again and the machine worked just fine, no grinding noise.

What caused the noise and what should I check to see if there is any damage I should be concerned with?

Thanks for your help.

    The suggestion I received were all good. I am trying to find a repair manual so I can remove the agitator and see if there is any items under it that may have caused the noise.



    Can you tell me how to remove it? Itook the top cap off but do not know how to remove the inside plastic retainer.

Is it possible that the washer was overloaded? if so the agitator has little plastic "gears" that move the agitator one way only, they could have made the sound. 
you can also check under the washer to see if anything (like a coat-hanger or something) is interfering with moving parts of the washer

My washer is making a loud nosie when agitation starts


That is a normal sound when the transmission shifts from the last spin cycle to go into the agitate cycle. It should make a loud click sound that does not last longer than a second. There is nothing wrong with your washing machine.

Whirlpool Duet Washer Making Loud Grinding Noise


not nesseccarrily your pump, possible you have a rear bearing going bad, which will sound as if a helicopter is coming through your laundry room. ( noisy pump can be the issue , honestly a better and cheapre problem to have) in order to determine if its apump problem you can remove the lower access panel and unplug the pump then start the spinn cycle, if it still loud the pumpms not hte issue.

hi there,

the grinding noise may be coming from either the pump or you have something caught between the drums.

the f-33 error is the pump drive system error. it indicates that you have lost communication between the CCU board and the pump. the CCU board is the main control board that you see in the front of your washer.

i would recommend that you call a technician to check it out, as you will have to do some checks that require technical knowledge.

Grinding niose from agitator.


If the fill and drain functions correctly, AND the spin cycle works correctly, AND the cycle itself starts and completes correctly, the problem being that the back and forth motion of the agitator starts the loud grinding noise, it will likley be broken gears in the transmission. The single most expensive part in the washing machine.
