SOURCE: LID SWITCH ON WASHER REPLACE.

TEMPORARY FIX for model # LSQ8200HQO (perhaps, other models as well) until you can tear the thing apart: DUCT TAPE. One drawback - you'll have to leave the lid open, tape the lid switch on the outside *away* from the tub. The wires on the model listed are long enough to allow you to do this.

Thanks for helping me figure out what the problem was. Tearing apart will have to wait until Monday ... RUSH CONCERT tomorrow night!!!

Water pump must not be running. Check if the belt is not broken or came off or the dial switch is bad or the clutch is not engaging.

Good luck

Your drain filter is clogged with debris. Usually small items like dirt, paper, money, and much more. Clean the filter and you should be set to go.

HI It sounds like the spin basket drive is going bad. If it was the lid switch, you would get no sound. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks

SOURCE: I have a whirlpool ultimate care 2 top load washer no spin

Sounds as if the drive hub which the tub is attached to maybe free spinning. Not an expensive part but does require a special tool called a spanner wrench to remove and replace.

Testimonial: "The issue turned out to be a worn out clutch. The fix was actually to use a couple of dimes to increase the pressure on the clutch piece so that it would engage the drive hub. 2.5 years later and the thing is still working."

Whirlpool ultimate care II will not go into rinse or spin cycle. Motor runs and agitates during wash cycle properly. This problem occurrs on all wash cycles.


The problem is most likely with the lid switch. This washer can fill and agitate with the lid up or down but will only drain and spin with the lid down. If the lid switch breaks the washer does not know that the lid is down so it will not run.

The part number for your model is 8054980 and runs about $20.00, it is shown in the image on this link below as part 11.

I can't find the model number on washer Whirlpool Ultimate Care


Model # and info is under the lid. Open lid and look directly under it - area facing you. You should see a small silver tag with all the factory info on it. My washer is also 9 years old.

Washer won't start spin cycle


sounds like a lid assy issue, can you hear a "clicking" just before the lid is closed, try opening nad closing a few times listening for a distinct "click" if not the machine doesnt think the door is closed and for safety reasons wont spin and drain.
