I have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washer. (Model # LSQ8243HQ0). As the water is filling up, during wash and during rinse - the washer functions properly, but is making a buzzing sound or humming sound (high pitched type sound). During spin cycle, it functions normally without any sound. Any idea what the problem might be and how to repair it?

Thanks!

Hi,

I would guess you have something caught in the water pump.

During agitate the pump turns a different direction then when it's pumping out or spinning.

I would remove the pump and take a look inside.
If there is something in the pump you don't want to leave it as it could end up cutting a hole in the pump. Then you would have a leak.

This video will help show you have to remove the water pump.

Smile Problem solved!!

Thank you so much! It was not an easy job, very time consuming, but your instructions (and with the help of the video), made it possible for a Mommy and her 11 year old son to fix the washing machine. There was indeed something in the water pump, a tooth actually. I am running the washer right now and its running quietly. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

That's great!

Glad to hear you got it fixed.

A tooth, wow.. I never found one of them in a water pump yet.
Was it your sons tooth?

You and your son did a awesome job!

Thanks for the update and feedback.....
