Question about Whirlpool LTE6234D Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Water temperature control not working

I have a Whirlpool stackable top-loading washer and dryer less than 6 months old. Whenever I set the washer's temperature control to cold I get hot water coming into the washer. Whenever I place it on warm I get hot water coming into washer. When I place it on Hot I get cold water. The rinse cycles are supposed to always be cold but the rinse cycle now is always hot. What could possible cause my washer to decide to operate in an opposite manner than it is supposed to and what can I do to fix it?

    Your right, that should be the problem--but it isn't. The hoses are hooked up correctly. It has worked fine for six months and then all of a sudden started the problem mentioned. I have checked the hoses for kinks and the hookups to the hot water heater and cold water inlet--they are both okay.  I am stumped. Please help.

    Nope, no work done on the unit since it was installed. Worked fine until 2 days ago. Anyway, I appreciate your help and the model number is V74T2MPP(3B).  Thanks,,,,johnb

    I don't think it is as small as a Thin Twin. It is a 27 inch washer/dryer stacked unit with model number WET3300SQ1 (or at least I think that is the right model number). The number came from the dryer door.

    Thanks. My washer and dryer is in a very tight place and it will take me awhile to get it out. I will get back with you as soon as I have it pulled out. Thanks again...johnb

What is the acuwash sensor


Washer temperature sensors and water level settings
The temperature of your washer's water varies with your laundry care needs. Standard washer models typically feature three temperature settings: Hot/Cold, Warm/Cold, and Cold/Cold—and higher-end models often offer as many as six or seven temperature settings. Temperature plays a key role in the effectiveness of your detergent—pairing the right detergent with the right setting for your fabrics and soil is important, as this will help reduce damage, prevent detergent residue, and provide the best wash across fabric types. For the best fabric care, look for washing machines with automatic temperature control (ATC). A sensor will control water temperature and ensure cold washes are above 60 degrees (F) to dissolve detergents, and warm washes do not exceed 93 degrees (F) to help prevent shrinking and bleeding.

The amount of water you use for each load also affects washer performance. Doing laundry is a bit like a science project. You need to make sure you are using the right volume of water, with the proper amount of detergent based on the dirt level of the laundry being cleaned. Too much of one component can result in a less-than-perfect outcome. Standard washing machines allow you to select water levels for different size loads, but some models offer more water-level options. Washers with automatic water levels use sensors to determine load size and adjust water level for best cleaning and rinsing performance. You will generally find these options in higher-priced top-loading washers. A benefit of front-loading washing machines is that most come with this automatic water-leveling feature.

Whirlpool® AccuWash™ temperature control sensor provides a temperature-controlled wash.

this is an article from the whirpool website, u can get a manual printed or downloaded by going to whirlpool.com and going to owners center and typing in ur model number.......

Washer stopped working with clothes and water in it


If you try to wash too many items with the water level set to low it is hard on the drive sysem and will kick out the motor.
When the motor resets it should work again but its very bad for the motor so II would try not to do it again.
Good Luck

Water not filling on washer


the inlet filter is probably clogged restricted and/or inhibited flow of water into your machine.
These things happen, and cleaning out the filter is a good first step to finding the problem.

Stackable Washer Dryer won't fill with water


hi
first thought would be water soleniods but it is unlikely that both would fail you could try just selecting one temp and then swaping hose and select the other temp if it wont work on either then i would think it is not a sol. problem, lid switch could cause it not to fill also but you did say it would spin so that will rule it out ,its coming back to a module problem ,something to ponder on
