    OK. I Have to bucket the water out of the machine first. I might add that I have no problem with filling the washer with water, but when it goes to agitate, nothing but a buzzing sound happens. Also, THANKS FOR YOUR HELP. PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE IS ALWAYS INSPIRING TO ME!

    That was amazing! I am a 4th year medical student, so I know alot, but I know jack about appliances! I found a mangled sock that belongs to my four month old daughter in the water pump! THANK YOU SO MUCH! One day I will have money to have stuff fixed, but on a students' budget, today is most definately not the day....Tomorrow isn't looking too good either :) Seriously though, you have saved me time, money, and most of all, you have helped alleviate my worry for my family. Thanks and all the best!

Sounds like something is stuck in the water pump. look under the machine and you will see the water pump front and center of machine.

Water will fill but wont do anything else


Does the water turn off when filled? If so can hear a motor humming or running? If so you have power to the washer.
Can you turn the timer ahead manually a step at a time? Then if you don't hear the motor running the timer may not be working or sending signals to motor to start. . But If the motor starts a spin cycle then the timer is just not running itself probably dut to not getting power.
All this is difficult without the diagrams. There are so many interlocks and safety switches that you wont know about.

Washer only fills. then completly dead.(timer still advance)


is there any humming coming from under or front of your washer? whirlpool built machines for about 10 years now are "direct drive" ...the motor has a plastic coupling held in place by a rubberish plastic donut type of thing, its an inexpensive fix and there are videos on youtube on how its repaired..its under 10 bucks and usually cures any lack of agitation/ spinning ...i had a roper by whirlpool and once i replaced it from a parts machine i salvaged it was fine.. so check you motor coupler/ coupling and that maybe your answer, if not there is a set of wires and a cut off in back of the motor to prevent overheating, which may have tripped..also a good point to check.. good luck

hi there,

the humming is the motor trying to turn, which means it works. since you did not mention any error messages, it could just be a belt that slipped off the pulley. have you taken it apart yet?

it definitely worth fixing.

I Have the same problem! Please Help!


Try tipping the washer over forward and look to see if the belt is still in place. If so, make sure it is tight. Have you tried setting the control knob on the control panel ahead a click at a time manually?

Whirlpool super capacity Lsq9549lw0 has trouble spinning on its own.


If the washer does fine thru the agitation cycle (the washing), that means the motor is OK and the coupler is OK.  It would not agitate unless both are OK.  (and don't listen if anyone tells you the lid switch is bad -- machine would not fill & go thru wash cyle). The spin is another matter.  There is a separate tube for spinning the basket.  There is a drive  block at top of the tube (that sometimes fails)  and there is a separate cluch mechanism below, under the tub.  Those places is where you should look.
