Question about Whirlpool LTE5243D Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Thin twin washer & dryer LT5000XS

The problem is that the dryer does not work at all. It has power and the door switch is fine. The blower duct was completely filled with lint but I cleaned it. There looks to be a sensor on the duct along with one on the heating element duct. Everything else looks to be okay but nothing happens when I try and start the dryer.

The lint obstruction possibly caused the high limit thermo to fail. It is designed to prevent the machine from running if it gets too hot. It should be the one at the top of the drier stack. the one on the element needs to be checked for proper operation as well. this can be done with a multimeter. Be sure to unplug your machine before checking as there will be power at the connection points.

How do i replace a stack washer dryer dryer door switch?

when you open washer door you hit a stopper pin that holds the door open. there are 2 screws located around that area on both sides of panel. remove them and you'll see vent hook up and water line hook up and power cord. Now at the backside of washer door panel there are two screws remove them and pull washer door panel towards you. under the door panel connected to panel is where you will find door switch. if you jump out door switch and it works then you need new door switch.

Whirlpool thin twin problem

First be sure you're getting power to the motor this could cause both problems. If getting power then
sounds like you have 2 problems.
On the heating problem be sure you have 220 volts at the power block, check the heating element , thermostats & high temp cutoff with an ohmmeter. Also check the centrifical switch on the motor it keeps the heat off for safety till the motor is up to speed so the fan is working.
Check lid switch some machines won't do anything but fill with the lid open . To check lid switch push the the switch down with a small screwdriver. If switch is ok check the coupler between the motor & transmission it can cause no agitate or spin. If all these are ok you may have a transmission problem. Last resort may be timer or wireing.
