Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer
EVERY THING WORKS BUT NO SPIN, IF I OPEN TOP DOOR AND TURN IT A 1/8 TURN AND CLOSE DOOR IT WILL START TO SPIN. HAS BEEN HIT AND MISS FOR LAST FEW MONTHS.
ANY HELP WOULD BE GREAT.
You could have a bad lid switch or the hinge may need to be bent to make better contact with the switch. If your washer has a oval cut out on the right side and an actuator on the rt side of the lid... the next time it acts up don't open the lid and turn the tub, simply push down on the rt side of the lid, if it starts to work replace the lid switch. If there is no hole or actuator on the rt side, then the lid switch is on the back left corner, when you open and close the lid you should hear a click. If you don't hear a click or if you hear it when the lid is almost closed you need to adjust the hinge. There are 2 screws on the back of the endcaps on the control panel remove them and flip up the control panel, use a screwdirver to pop out the spring clamps on the rt and lt sides of the top panel. approx 3-4 inches from the sides. just insert the tip into the front most part of the clamp and pry back. unclip the lid switch, and pull the cabinet forward. You should be able to bend the hinge a little so it makes better contact with the lid switch. hope this helps.
