Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Loud Noise at the End of the Spin Cycle

We have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washer. It's about six years old. Recently, as it finishes up the spin cycle, it makes this loud, shaky noise that sounds like it is about to either take-off or explode. It almost sounds like it the load inside is out of balance, but upon checking it's not. I've used a level to ensure that it is sitting flat. If I had to guess, I would say that the clutch is slipping but I don't know for sure which lead me to this cool website. Any suggestions or ideas? Thanks, Pace

    To close this thread out, we had a repairman come and take a look at it. The transmission is shot. To repair it would cost as much as a new machine with only a 90 day warranty. We bought a new GE washer the other day. No more Whirlpool for me!

Whirlpool washing machine make loud noise after spin cycle quits. Noise continues until cycle winds down. Sounds like a machine gun being fired


Hello,have to tell you that most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping noise during the spin, the load of cloth may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the cloths, then restart the machine. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Thanks

Replace the direct drive coupling between the motor and transmission.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II spin cycle not functioning correctly


It sound like the basket is out of balance. When it spins open the lid and see if the basket is moving side to side and back to back. If so look under the deck and see if there is springs or rubber ties attached to the basket.

Washer won't drain, makes loud noise


This problem, or some variation thereof evidently is very common with these Whirlpool Washers!  I have same problem.  So far, best I have found is at  http://applianceguru.com/forum2/5958.html#
diagnosis by someone who knows.  What William Burk says there makes sense.  However, to get to the drive block there's quite a bit of disassembly required.  I am stopped because I cannot get the spanner nut off.  Hope this gives you some help toward finding a more comprehensive answer
