Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer
Hi. My whirlpool ultimate care II washing machine just stopped
spinning on the spin cyle. On any other cylce the agitator moves,
albeit slowly and it makes a terrible whining/ grinding sound and once
it gets to spin it will not move at all. I have tested the lid
switch and it is working and I have taken the agitator out and it seems
to be fine. The problem sounds more like it is coming from the
motor- what could it be and can I fix this myself? The washer is
only a couple of years old.
You will need to take the washer apart, are you up for this?
Did you overload the washer? you may have burnt out the clutch, if you did the repairs may cost more then you want to spend.
Check to see if you have a broken coupler
Start by unpluging the washer or turning the power off. on the bottom of the control panel are a couple screws you will need to remove them. then the control panel pulls slightly forward and then you can flip is up and out of the way.
Now you need to look for two clips that hold the cabinet to the back panel use a screw driver as a lever and release them.
Now the cabinet should pull off to the front, make sure you have room to set is out of the way. it may have some wires on it, you will have to remove them and mark them so you know where they go.
Now down at the bottom of the washer are hoses and the pump, this is held on by clips and screws to the motor, you will need to remove these, then the motor needs to come off, it also is held on by clips to the transmission. I believe your problem is the coupler between the motor and transmission. replace as needed.
Or worse case you have other problems, clutch, etc. You may need to call some one in, or replace the washer completely.
