Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9564J Top Load Washer

Open Question

Five year old whirlpool Cabrio top loading washer. Unit sounds like it could use some bearing lubrication during spin cycle. Already have removed the agitator and basket. Outer tub is still suspended on its four rods. To gain access to the tub bearing do I remove the outer tub while still attached to the motor? Whirlpool does not list the bearing separately and I am hoping to replace it or grease it using a needle attachment to a grease gun. If removed together, what is my next step to separating the tub from the motor shaft?

SOURCE: rear tub bearing replacement

The shaft on the spinner basket may have worn and formed a groove, or, if the bearing seal was leaking, the shaft may be stuck because of rust. The best way I know how to get the spinner basket out, is to try spraying the shaft with a lubricant like penetrating oil, or WD-40 and letting it sit a while. Allow the lubricant to settle into the area where the shaft seats into the bearing. If this does not provide you with any luck, place the outer drum face down on something to elevate the spin basket up off the floor. I suggest using a couple of saw horses, or blocks of wood. Allow the outer shell to rest on supports, leaving the spin basket free. Place some padding or old towels on the floor underneath the basket. Take a mallet (I prefer a rubber mallet, as it tends to be less abusive) and tap on the end of the drum shaft. The spin basket should pop free and drop from the tub shell. I hope this helps you.

PS You only have to elevate the basket and tub off the floor enough to allow the spin basket to drop free of the tub. About a foot is all I would recommend. Make sure you inspect and clean the spin basket shaft once you get it removed. Some very fine emery paper is what I would recommend to make sure the shaft is not scored or have any rough areas. DO NOT use any electric sanders or dremils for this! It should be clean and smooth before re-installing. If you cannot get the basket free, or if you do, and the shaft is damaged, you may consider replacing it as well. Placing a damaged shaft into a new bearing may not seal properly.

SOURCE: Leaking around center spindle gasket of outer plastic basket

There was a hole in the plastic liner tub from the inner metal basket rubbing on it during the spin cycle. I got some plastic cement and put it in there and it willl hold for a little while while anyway. Not a very well designed washer when you look into the guts of the monster.

My washer sounds like a turbine engine during spin cycle


It is the bearing in the outter basket. Some of the units had 5 years on the outter baket. I am a service tech & fixed several of these.

NOISE DURING SPIN CYCLE


You have to take the tub out, take off the rotor from the bottom of the washer, remove 4 bolts and take off the stator, take off the bearing retaining nut, then drive the 2 bearings out with a drift. I bought the bearings online for 20 bucks from a supplier (VBX). They are standard metric bearings number 6005 and 6006. I put some silicone grease on the shaft seal and drove the new bearings into place. Then reassembled, and the washer is whisper quiet.

That is a characteristic of bearings gone bad. You should look into replacing the bearings.
