Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

Whirlpool top-load washer

I tipped the washer over to replace a stabilizing pin that fell out and tried to find my (missing) socks. I can see small clothing articles between the metal colander basket and the plastic drum. How can I remove the agitator or the plastic lip piece that joins the metal and plastic drum? Do I attempt to remove from the bottom or the top?

    I managed to get the washer apart by taking the top off and the agitator out. Replaced the stablizing pins, cleaned the outer drum and the fabric softener dispenser but have not found my socks! Thanks for the tip. I don't have that wrench and I'm not all that attached to my socks so I'll leave it be for now.

When we do wash and small items like kids sock, etc. they are somehow getting into the pump section when it is draining, what can i do?

There should be a drain screen between the basket/tub area and the drain tubing. Make sure the drain screen is not missing or doesn't have any holes in it.

I have a Kenmore top loading washer. While moving it into the house, it made a loud sound and a small copper pin fell out of the bottom. Does anyone know how to put this back in place?

That pin is a pin used to move the washer (secure the drum) and is not used when in normal operation. There are 4 total that should be removed. They are stored in little cups on the legs, and likely fell out of the cup.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Whirlpool top loading washing mchine will not drain

If you can get any panel off of the dryer you will see a leather or rubber joint that connects to the pump. Sometimes the socks that go missing float over the top of the drum inside the washer and get caught in the pump. If the pump joint is not broken you should see it bound up or kinked. Depending on your washer you may be able to remove the drain tube and fish out the blockage.

Refrigerator door fell off.

Fridge fell off in my hand. I understand the idea of how it works on a lower and higher metal pivot. The pivot closest to floor seems to be missing a washer, screw or nut. I need an illus of what may be a missing part. Then an idea of how the door is lifted onto said pivot- With Ease!!

Nothing happens after filling up

The missing pinis more than likely your problem.
Take a pencil or small screwdriver and insert into the lid switch hole and try the washer.
If it works, replace the lid pin.
If not, replace the lid pin AND the lid switch.

Small earrings fell into holes on bottom

if they fell through those small holes doubt you'll find them something that small would probably be pumped out and down the drain ..if you haven't used washer since may be lucky enough to find them in pump but doubt it pump is pretty strong and can handle almost anything except socks and thongs
