Question about Whirlpool LTE5243D Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer
When you start the washer on the WARM/COLD setting, the basket will fill quickly, as you'd expect. After it completes the first wash/drain cycle is when the problem comes on. At this point the cycle seems to get stuck or something--water should be refilling the basket for the final rinse, but that doesn't happen. The machine makes a low, constant noise that would, seemingly, go on forever, but I've figured out a way to bypass the hiccup by stopping the cycle and advancing the timer/wash selector forward a few clicks, then pulling the knob back out to restart. It will complete the wash cycle then, but the basket won't refill completely doing it this way. (BTW, this is using the REGULAR/HEAVY wash cycle only; I haven't tried other cycles.) So it seems that the problem is in the timing--that low noise I mentioned sounds almost like a timer clicking/humming away. Perhaps the timer isn't advancing enough to actuate the basket-filling function?
At first I thought it was a problem or blockage in the incoming water lines because the water comes in shudders and spurts (in other words, not a constant, steady flow), but after trying different water temp settings everything worked as you'd expect. I also pulled the machine out to check the lines and everything seemed to be fine.
Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!
