Moving a large washing dryer to access vent behind

I have a front loading washer with the dryer stacked above (brand below). They are large and heavy. The two units are in a small laundry 'room'. I need to pull them forward so I can access the vent behind to clean it out. How do I move these behemoths about 6"?

My LTE5243D top load stacked washer is about 10 years old. How do you take the front panel off to access the washer's motor coupling?


To gain access to the washer components, the front panel between washer and dryer must be removed first.
Remove the two top screws securing thethis panel to the unit.Tilt the transition panel down and pull itstraight out.Remove the two screws located behind the washer top.Pull the washer top forward to disengage the top locks. Disconnect the washer lid switch harness. Lift the washer top off the unit.Remove the two screws from inside the top of the washer front panel.Lift up on the front panel to release the catches near the bottom of the panel andremove the front panel.

DRYER PROBLEM


When the pads on the front wear, it will make noise when running. They can be replaced. There is one on the top and one on the bottom rim where the drum turns. You remove the front to access them by removing the screws on the top. Post your model number for diagrams. It's usually stamped on a small tag in a visible location on your appliance.

Washer-Dryer- behind or on top of the control panel. Behind the door. On the lower front or side of the cabinet.

Wet towels & blankets stacked on working dryer


This won't affect drying time unless the load is so heavy it causes the cabinet to warp and disturb the door seal. If you haven't had any problem with this so far you can probably keep doing it. (The machine is designed to support the weight of a wet load in the drum, and should have some safety margin. But why not invest in a roll-around laundry cart like you find at laundromats and keep the wet load there until the dryer is clear?) You might need to be more concerned about rust starting on the top of the cabinet if the enamel is scratched, since it's not usually subjected to wet loads being piled there. You should also check your vent pipe frequently to make sure it stays clear with all the drying you do. Clogged lint screens and vent pipes will definitely lengthen drying time.

Does the washer spin? Does it just flop the clothes back and forth and doesn't spin? Lastly how does it sound while draining, is muffled, grinding, chunking or heavy vibrations and no water ?? Let me know and here is a pic of the pump, it is behind the kick panel below the door,remove with either a torx T20 or a 1/4 inch socket. You will see the large knob that holds a clean out, check the pic. Note #15 is the clean out:)

How to remove the washer cycle selection/start-stop knob on a Whilpool Heavy Duty Thin Twin stacked washer dryer


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.

Dryer takes forever


You have a clog somewhere in the venting. Anywhere between the lint screen and the outside of the house. Use a vaccum with a crevice tool to reach behind the lint screen. Also check the flaps on the outside of the house. You can also access the machine end of the vent pipe by removing the two Phillips screws on the angled panel just below the dryer door. If you feel you need to take apart the machine further to clean behind the lint screen, write back. It's very tricky, and will take some time, but I can walk you through it.
Good luck!
