Question about Whirlpool LTE5243D Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Washer will not fill with water

When I turn on the washer at the start of a cycle it will not fill with water. Instead it automatically begins to agitate as if it thinks it already has water in it. Is there a way to reset the water level sensor? Or is there another fix?

    Was working fine yesterday, but then during a load, it didn't do the spin cycle and everything was soaked. Now it won't fill with water, it just 'agitates'. When sent to 'spin' or 'rinse' there is a sound of water for 1/2 a second but no water comes out and nothing is moving.

I solved the identical issue that I was having with my washer, maybe it will help you: I opened the front panel to the washer and found a clear plastic line running down the inside; it had become clogged. Could tell, because disconnecting the line caused the washer to function. Removed clog and it seems to run fine now.

Starts washing before it begins to fill


Should have a tube that goes from the bottom of the washer tub to the control panel - check the hose for problems first; if none found - you will need to replace the water level switch. It is a pressure sensitive (diaphragm) sensor, that may have failed or stuck, causing a fault to the main controller/timer. I would favor a stuck diaphragm over a hose problem...
Hope this helps...

I have a top loading Kenmore Washing Machine. I don´t have the excat model but looks like a KENMORE HEAVY DUTY SERIES 70 AUTOMATIC WASHER, MODEL # 110.92273100. The problem presents after finishing...


You may have 2 defective parts.
First,make sure the hot and cold water hoses are connected correctly and both turned on.
If the water fill problem is the same,the water temp switch is bad.
The not filling after the wash cycle could be a bad lid switch.
Set the machine for SPIN and turn it on.
If it does not spin,replace the lid switch.

Washer won't wash


Hi!
When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Washer not filling up with water at beginning of cycle.


Don't replace anything. You will need to clean out the tube which connects the water level switch to the tub. (or replace that tube)

Shutting down on rinse cycle


Hi this could means that you may need to replace the washing machine bearings. Once the bearings are bad, the motor overheats and it will automatically shut down after the first rinse.
