There is a leak coming from the front center of the washer and it seems that I have to remove the dryer on top to loosen the top cover of the washer and remove the front cover. Is this correct? I cant find the manual on-line for free. Is there such a website?

first access the tech sheet and run any diagnostics it shows for the machine and if this passes,then check/change the fill switch on the control panel along with fill tube from the wash tub base if kinked or plugged
have you looked near the bottom of the front panel near the floor,there are 2 or 3 screws located at a 45 degree upward angle(to hide them from view) so they dont show,remove these and the front should hinge upward like an auto hood and the clips near the top should let go when its raised far enough upward
When you replace the pump, always to remember to makes sure the pump is pushed all the way in so that the shaft has a good grip. Try taking it out and pushing it all the way in. The 4 legs should touch the motor, as you put the 2 little clamps on the top and bottom.
Good luck, I'm pretty sure it's something really basic with the pump :)
Most likely a leaking water pump. Remove the top lid from the washer. Then remove the front panel to access the water pump. The pump is attached to the front of the motor. Remove the pump support clips then remove the pump from the motor. If in question, set the machine to fill with water and look for a water leak at the pump. You can also inspect all other hoses and water connections with the panel removed.
Not sure about the dryer but there are a couple things that could cause the no draining issue. You could have a leak or block in your pressure hose. Basically there is a thin, clear tube inside the cabin that attaches to the tub on the lower right side. If this has a leak or is clogged then the washer has problems filling and draining. The other possible problem is a broken lid switch. This is an easy fix. Basically, the mechanical mechanism that goes down when you close the lid does not work properly so when it comes time to drain, the washer actually thinks the lid is open. For both of these you would need to open cabin. I posted instructions for that here: http://www.fixya.com/support/t1885690-whirpool_twin_washer_dryer_lte5243dq3
I believe the selector knob on a Whirpool just has to be turned counter-clockwise with the selector pushed in. It will spin off the shaft and then the outer indicator dial will pull off. The shaft also has a keyed slot that will only allow the dial to be removed and installed one way, so there should be no question as to how it goes back on.
Was there a reason as to why you are removing the washer selector knob? If this is a simple matter of replacing a broken water temperature selector, you shouldn't have to remove any of the control knobs to gain access to the selector. The entire front panel comes off by removing the screws holding it in place. That way you can access the broken selector from behind the front panel much easier. Just remove the panel right above the washer top (under the dryer) and it should expose the front panel mounting screws. Remove these screws and the front panel comes off. Just make sure the unit is unplugged before you begin. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.
