Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II drum does not spin.

Drum does not spin during any spin cycle, all other cycles work fine. Took apart motor to see if it was the coupling and it is good. When I spin the coupling on the transmission side the round metal cylinder above the gearbox spins, but the part inside that is connected to the drum does not. When I mannually turn the drum everything turns, what part do I need to replace.

    I have the same problem. I got the part number 8528150 from the 1800 number in the same machine, but this is not for a belt. It's for a tub ring. Is this the part I need? My husband is installing it. Thank you.

Depending on your washing machine model, the drum and motor are connected by 2 plastice yellow circular pieces, with a black rubber washer in the middle with holes where the pegs or rods go into. The 2 plastic circular pieces have 3 pegs or rods if you will, that connect to the black rubber washer via 3 holes. Sometimes, one or both of the 2 plastic circular piece pegs get broken off or the rubber washer cracks and breaks apart, so that the motor will not turn the drum. If thats the case, you can purchase the 2 circular pieces and black washer piece as a set.

I have a dryer which stops spinning some times, I have to manually spin the drum for it to start again. This may happen several times during a cycle.


I assume you mean it still heats fine and everything? Tear it apart and see if the belt is in good condition and routed properly and that the pulley spins easily. If everything checks fine maybe you just have some bad spots in the motor. Good luck.

My washer will spin but very slowly. Motor and shaft spins out of washer.


Your problem sounds like the drum/tub drive clutch is worn. Especially if the motor operates fine and attempts to spin the tub. This model is a direct drive unit, no belts, so if the motor operates during the spin and drain cycles but the tub is barely moving, only two problems can cause this, bad clutch (which is engaged only during the spin cycles) or worn drive coupling on the motor. If the coupling were a problem, though, you would also notice sluggish or erratic agitation during the wash cycle.

Hope this helps

Whirlpool ultimate careII spin cycle


sounds as if perhaps a wire is off on the side of the motor assy, l;ook at he wiring harness, sometimes a "chugging " noise occurs form the motor when one of the harnesses is not attached. and yes its normal to wash with the lid open, not to spin however( thats a saftey issue)

WMA54 Hotpoint Aquarius drum does not turn during wash or spin


Start checking the lid switch, if this is stuck the machine wont start.

If the drum does not move at all, the motor, the motor control unit, the motor coupler, the control board may be faulty.

For more details you need to observe if machine is draining and pumping water inside during cycle, see: It doesn't spin
