Question about Whirlpool LTE5243D Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer

2 Answers

Flooding Yesterday the washer was working fine. Today I loaded the washer and turned it on. When I came back to the kitchen a few minutes later water was leaking from the bottom of the washer and flooding the kitchen. I turned it off but the water kept coming. I removed the clothes and used cups to scoop out all of the water left in the machine. When there was about five inches of water left, the flooding stopped. What happened and how do I fix it?

La Trisha, There could be many reasons for the leak, however usually all leaks are visable. Your model is a direct drive pump and motor and I have seen a lot of these pumps go bad and leak. You will have to remove the front panel. There should be 2 clips, one on each side of the washer top. Push a putty knife in these clips and the front panel should pop out from the top. Now you will be looking right at the pump on the bottom. It is held on with 2 clips and 2 clamps, a real easy fix. When you remove the front panel, let the washer fill a little again and see if the water is pouring from the pump. You will also be able to get a look at all the other hose attachments. The part number for the pump is 3363394. Good luck..

Chances are the clear plastic line has popped off the connector fitting of the water level control. Cut off 3/4 inch of the tubing end and reconnect the tubing to the water level control. The water level control should be behind the Control Panel at the far left side. Hope this helps.

If it were a furnace, I would say it was a thermo coupler, but on the stove it is called a thermostat. If it goes bad, it will stop the heat after a few minutes, because it can not sent the right signal to the brain.

Well...my ball park guess on this is just a tune up. The engine light is usually showing a misfire. If the plugs are bad then the cylinder is not igniting the fuel and it is flooding out. With what is here this makes sense to me. Let me know what it does turn out to be.

I asked my wife about this question, before I became to technical and scared you more then you needed to be scared. My DARLING wife told me right away that you are overloading your machine. It occured to me she may have done this a few times herself. Mind you this is 50 years of experience . When you load your machine with to many items the water is displaced and has to go somewhere, it's caming up over the top and causeing your flooding problem. After you clean up and have a few highballs to settle your nerves, you should be OK. My wife and I wish you GOOD LUCK.

Dribbling water when trying to fill up


Turn off faucets for hoses to washer. disconnect hoses at washer, noting which one went where first.. Hold end of hose in washer tub and turn on faucet. If it comes out strong, check the filter screens in washer inlet valve where hoses connected. DO-NOT remove these screens. If you do it can cause flooding by allowing grit to hold open valve. Clean screens without removing them by scraping with small screwdriver and flushing with water.
