Question and Answers

Q:

Water level switch LSQ8543JQ0 Whirlpool Automatic washer, compact a/w

A:




Another thing to try is to access the water level switch and examine the clear plastic hose for kinks or small pin holes.
 
While you have the hose off try to blow through it towards the tub. You should be able to blow through the hose without to much trouble. You might even hear bubbles from the sump of the washer while you're blowing through the hose.
 
If the hose is clear and there are no holes then replacing the water level switch will most likely correct this problem. The part number for the water level switch is 3366848 and can be obtained from the following link: Sears PartsDirect .

One thing to check is when you turn the timer off or unplug the washer the water should stop filling. If you turn the timer off or unplug the washer and water continues to fill then most likely you have a bad water valve.

Q:

Whirlpool Automatic washer, compact a/wmodel #LSQ8543JQ0 (Turns off in Rinse Mode) LSQ8543JQ0 Whirlpool Automatic washer, compact a/w

A:

Hello, glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com.
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is problems with the washing machine.
 
Glad to help out.  I’m looking at your Whirlpool Washer model number LSQ8543JQ0.

I see you checked the hoses, that is the first thing to do.  Along with that make sure where the water drains out at the spicket that it is clear also.

One of the first items to check is the lid switch.  If gone bad, then will not let the washer drain or wash.  Only allows the washer to fill and to wash.   Can be verified if good or bad by knowing how and using an ohm/volt meter.
 
After the lid switch then you can check out the pump.  
 
Please "RESUBMIT YOUR QUESTIONS IF THERE IS ANY OTHER PROBLEMS".
 
Thank you for your understanding in this matter and I hope we can help you with your future questions and repairs.  Thank you for choosing Sears and using our SearsPartsDirect.com.

Q:

Washer won't spin or drain LSQ8543JQ0 Whirlpool Automatic washer, compact a/w

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect. I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your washer will not drain or spin. I have looked into the model number you have provided and I have found information to assist you. 



No spin gearcase: Remove the cabinet, install a lid switch by pass, and put the washer into spin cycle. Observe the silver clutch on top of the transmission. If the clutch drum is turning the gearcase is good. If it is not turning the gearcase will need to be replaced. 

No spin clutch: easy check for a failed clutch; Using a load of wet towels, place the washer into spin. If the washer will not spin witha  load but will spin empty, and the drive block is good, the clutch will need to be replaced. 

It could be the motor or the timer. 

I recommend having a technician check the motor because it controls the spin and the drain.
