Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9564J Top Load Washer

2 Answers

Is it dead?

My whirlpool Ultimate Care II top loading washer fills with water and then nothing. Currently it is full of water. I applied pressure to the lid in case it was not recognizing it was closed but no luck. It doesn't make any sound or perform any functions except filling with water. It is plugged in and the GFC has not tripped, I checked. Please tell me I can fix it.

    I have the same issue. I used a hose to drain the water out so it doesn't start to smell.

    Get a pencil and hold in the button on the door. If that makes the washer start then you need to put a new switch on the door latch.

    My Whirlpool washer, three years old, is filling and then won't drain, spin, wash, it's useless. What is going on? ANYONE?

    I have the same problem. Filled with water and now will do nothing. I tried the pencil thing, did not help. Before it died, I did smell a burning smell. When I turn it on, the lights in the room dim a little, but machine does nothing. Could this be caused by running a medium load on a small load cycle, although 2 loads were done after that?

The ticking sound is coming from the drive motor.
Removing the back and peering into the guts will tell you if there is a shredded belt causing the problem.
If the transmission has failed, the last one I bought years ago cost ~$130 wholesale.
