SOURCE: Whirpool lsq9244eqo fills and drains but does not spin or agitate

It sounds like the agitator gripping teeth are worn out. To check this, take the agitator cap off with a strong knife or flat-head screw driver, pull the cap off and check the plastice teeth and four plastic hooks that grab the teeth. If they are worn out, then you will have to replace the agitator. To replace it, you will see a nut that is between the circlular teeth. Unscrew the nut and pull the agitator up hard.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Ultimate Care Heavy Duty Washer will not spin

It sounds like you have a broken motor coupling. This is a very inexpensive and simple repair.

If the washer will fill and drain, but won't agitate or spin, you may have a broken motor coupling. The noise of the motor engaging, lack of agitation and ability to still drain are the usual symptoms. This is a common fail item with this model washer through normal wear and tear. Newer versions of the coupler are more resilient and resist breaking. The following link explains how to replace one:
The motor coupling is located between the drive motor and the transmission and takes the place of a drive belt. They do wear out and can break. The replacement part number is included in the link I provided and is an improved upgraded coupling that is more resilient. It should last longer. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

A replacement coupler can be purchased on line at for about $11. Just use the part number in the link and "Search by Part Number" for your search criteria.

SOURCE: ultimate care supreme leaks underneath

First check the hoses to the machine. If they leak the water follows the hoses and drips on floor. Also check the hose connection at the washer. They will leak inside. Next it may well be a water pump going out or the plastic hose that is under pressure when operating. The pump is in the middle of machine underneth - Sorry - Good luck

    SOURCE: Ultimate Care II washer will not agitate or spin

    Your lid switch could be the problem. It has 3 wires: black red which are hot and green which is ground. Unplug that lid switch and check for continuity between black and red with the lid shut. This video shows where the lid switch is located

    What causes it to stop intermittently?
    WP661600 is the motor part number for most of the Whirlpool Ultimate Care Washers. Your motor has a internal thermal protective fuse, which will open up, then re-close after a certain amount of "cooling down" time for the motor. You may want to wash smaller loads as to give the motor a break on amperage draw. the cost for the motor is around $125-$145. Also, check the timer for burn contacts.

    I have a whirlpool ultimate care heavy duty super capacity plus imperial 9 cycle washer and after bringing it home from my moms house in -20 weather after installation it leaks from bottom. What do i do

    Hello mcc... It is possible with temperatures that low to have a water filled component freeze and crack. In order to determine if that is the case, go to and enter your model number.

    This will provide you with free schematics of all of the components of your machine. This way you will know what you are looking at when you pull the machine out from the wall, and inspect it. Joe

    Thanks for choosing Fixya!
