Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

I have a1995 Whirlpool Thin Twin model #LTE5243BNO & the timer needs replacing. I have the new timer but I need instructions on how to do it. I'm able to fix most things that need repairing by using common sense & the right tools, but I don't want to start taking the washer all apart without some idea of how to do it. Any advise will be greatly appreciated. My email is bodatiousddd@yahoo.com. Thanks!!

Before you run in there with a hammer, is there any way to simply turn off the buzzer alert? I have a different dryer, but I can disable the buzzer. Please check the operator's manual first. If you've gotten to the point of no return, you can disable the buzzer - carefully. Never leave any exposed wires dangling about.

SOURCE: whirlpool thin twin dryer starts and stops after 5 seconds

In the back of your thin twin dryer is a small white flat fuse attached with a screw, a clip, and two spade clips and wires. This is a thermal fuse and if tripped will cause your dryer to do nothing. Check with multimeter for continuity and replace if necessary. Also inside machine is a black tubular capacitor that will cause dryer to not run. Again, remove after properly discharging capacitor. Using multimeter check capacitor for continuity and potential. Obviously disconnect all power to machine before even thinking about repair. 240 volts will kill you dead.

Old whirlpool thin/twin Dryer timer old timer M404-G New timer M460-G how to hook up


The problem as stated is that the new M460-G timer does not have the same pins as the old one (because there seem to be a variety of sub-models under the M460-G name). However, I have successfully (at least to provide the timed heat function) used a different M460-G on my Frigidaire Crown Gas Dryer M/N FDGB23RGS2 . To do this, I had to figure out the terminal functions by rotating the M460-G switch and measure with ohm meter and also by inspection of a wiring diagram at appliance pros dot com
On Frigidaire Crown FBGB23RGS2 Gas Dryer:
The original M460-G is wired:
Terminal / Function / Color
A / Gas / Org
B / Line voltage / Red
c / Motor / Wh
Timer wired between TM and C
AD / Auto Dry / Pink
TD / Start Switch and Motor / Tan

On other M460-G Gas Dryer timer (from mystery Dryer), I wired it to into my Crown dryer as follows:
Terminal / Function / Crown Dryer Wire color
BU / Line Voltage / Red
BK / Motor / Wh
R / Gas / Org
V / ? / No Connection
Timer wired between TM and BK
WB / switched on while Motor & Gas / Tan
OR / ? / Pink (figured it was safe)48146720-bbc3-47da-833c-6d50a0cf5df0.jpg

I need to replace lid switch on Whirlpool Thin Twin washer/dryer unit. How do I get the switch out and the new one in


The 3 screws across the front of the slanted panel need to be removed, then the panel. At the left and right rear of the main washer top are 2 5/16" screws, these need to be removed, there is a loose fitting steel clip through a slot on the main top these are holding down, when the 5/16" screws are removed slide the entire top forward and it will release from the front fixed clips. Unplug the lid switch unit and the main top can be set aside to replace the switch. Pleazer Appliance...

Whirlpool thin twin #LT7000XUNO washer timer doesn't turn, have to do everything manually. Easy fix?


A) I've never worker on the dual stacked setups.

B) Standard topload is easy. Make sure you unplug it first, locating a replacement timer will be the hardest part. Most places around here are "wholesale" and only sell to techs. You used to could walk in with a maintenance uniform and buy the parts, for cash, then they started requiring company accounts. We still have at least one that sells retail parts. You may have to check the internet. You'll need the Manufacturer, Model, and , maybe the serial number.

Then the access to the backside of the timer usually involves removing a back panel or lifting the entire top of the assembly. With a dual I'd figure it to be a back panel.

C) Then you second hardest and most critical part is labeling your connections and making sure that you plug them into the exact same place on the new one that they now reside on the old one.

My Thin Twin stackable washer & dryer Model # LTE5243DQ3 is having problems w/the washer spin cycle. I'm thinking I may just need a new timer because it goes through all the cycles except the spin...


Hello,

Before wasting money on a timer that wont be returnable once it is removed from the packaging please respond to me and tell me does the washer do everything including draining, and the only thing it will do not do is spin
or will it wash but not drain and spin
their are 2 posibilities based on your response and neither is the timer

Thanks,
Gene

so ya know i have beena appliance repair technician for over 30 years

It's heavy duty thin twin model. The cycle stops at spin and water stays in the mashine.


When it gets to the SPIN cycle,wait 45 seconds. If it does not spin,open then close the lid.
If it spins then,replace the timer.
If it does not spin,replace the lid switch.

Whirlpool thin twin dryer just beeps and wont start


Does this dryer have a dial timer you set, or does it have a keypad? If it has a timer then you have a bad timer. If it has keypads, then you have bad ciruit board

Our Whirlpool Thin Twin model#LT7000XTWO will not start when pressing on the start button.Washer works.Could the problem be the starter button or the timer switch? Thanks, Ernie C.


Hello birddog44,

Happy to help you.


You said, Our Whirlpool Thin Twin model#LT7000XTWO will not start when pressing on the start button.Washer works.Could the problem be the starter button or the timer switch?

If the washer works, I can only assume, you are talking about the dryer not starting when you press on the start button.

I believe that it just might be the start button.
Is it a gas or electric dryer?

You have the Whirlpool Thin Twin model#LT7000XTWO

How old is this appliance?
The model # sounds like an older model.

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you may not be advisable to put good money into bad! New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy.
Therefore they pay for them selves in only a few years.
You can buy New and save today.

Find the small privately owned and operated appliance store and you will get better service and good treatment! They also will be the best informed!

Bless You,
huuum

Please give me a solved rating for this good advice
