Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer
I have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care 2 top loading washing machine Model # LSQ7030KQ0 that doesn't spin all the time. It will agitate just fine. No problems with that. I put a screwdrive in the sensor so I could leave the lid off. I watched it do the whole cycle. It did the agititate and then drained the water. Once it was drained it did nothing. It sounded like it was trying to spin. I could not manual spin it though. Was locked in place. I turned off and then back on and it began spinning. It did this again after it filled with water again and did another agitate and then drain. Turning off and on again made it spin. I have noticed a couple times I have opened it up and I could manually start the spin myself and it would start spinning. Not this time though. (We bought these used from a friend of a friend) It looks like it may have sprayed some oil underneath at some point in time. There is a little bit of oil (Looks like it may have been there for a bit) on a couple bolts underneath. Not sure if that means anything. Thanks for any help.
How much does it cost to replace a basket? My washer's 2 years old and I am starting to get rust spots on clothes (?)
I am assuming the slightly rusty basket is to blame (I see slight rusty colored discoloration towards the bottom holes in the basket)

I am experiencing the same problem with my 18 month old Whirlpool Ulitmate Care II washer. The repairman was out today and told me that I need a new transmission and clutch. He's replacing the basket too since it's starting to rust. What a piece of junk! Good Luck with yours.

The motor coupler could be worn. This is accessed by removing the front of the cabinet. The upper console 1s held on by 2 screws at the base of the upper control at the back corners. The console slides forward then rotates up. Benearth the upper console is 2 gold spring clips which have to be pryed out with a screwdriver, The power cord will have to be disconnected at this time. The whole cabinet will tip forward 45 degrees leaving the base and tub assembly stationary. The cabinet then can be slid out of the way. In the front at the bottom is the pump and motor. Pry off the 2 spring clips that hold the plastic pump in place and pull it out of the way. You do not need to disconnect the water lines. The motor is held in place by 2 spring clips which are fastened to the motor by a 5/16 hex bolts. Remove these bolts and pry the clips out of the way they both will pop off of the motor, do not let the motor drop. Pull the motor out of the way revealing a black rubber disk with a white coupler on the motor shaft and one on the transmission shaft. this whole assembly will likely be damaged and will need to be replaced.
