Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9564J Top Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ7533JQ1 washing machine. It agitates and drains but does not spin. I checked the motor coupling is not worn out nor broken. This is a two speed washing machine. When I try to turn the shaft in the gear case, it only turns one way. Is this normal or is the problem with the break or clutch?

This is a neutral drain direct drive machine which drains the water first prior to spinning. After draining out the water completely, the motor pauses then restarts to spin the tub. It is possible that the problem is in the lid switch. If the motor is running during the spin cycle then the lid switch is good, otherwise it is indeed the problem.

The problem can be either in the brake particularly the cam driver or the clutch assembly. The clutch hub is attached to the spin pinion gear and as the spin pinion gear turns, the clutch hub also turns. The clutch lining is forced against the clutch hub by the clutch spring. As the clutch hub turns, friction between it and the clutch lining causes the clutch lining to turn. As the clutch turns, the tab that holds the clutch spring on the lining, contacts the brake cam driver, releasing the brake. The tab on the clutch lining remains in contact with the brake cam driver, holding the brake released and then providing power to the spin tube through the brake release.

The basket will not spin if the brake cam driver is broken because the brakes cannot be released. If the clutch spring is weak, the friction between the clutch hub and the clutch lining is not sufficient for the clutch tab to push the cam driver and release the brakes.

Check and replace, if necessary, the brake cam driver and the clutch assembly particularly the clutch spring and the clutch lining.

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.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care HD Plus Model #LSR8233EQ0 won't agitate or spin


It sounds like the coupling between the motor and gearbox has worn out. It should cost around $15 plus shipping and handling.
