Question about Whirlpool LTE5243D Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer
The washer pump is not draining the tub. How do I get to it so that I can see if it is clogged or needs to be replaced? What panels do I remove first and in what order?
The pump is directly connected to the motor. the dryer section must be removed. next the washer console must be removed. next the top comes off. next the side front and side come off as one piece. it unbolts from the bottom and back plates.

waht u need to do is get a bucket now take the outlet hose and place it into it low to the ground if water comes out then it will be that your pump is faulty and needs replacing but if it doesnt the only way to do it is towels on the floor and with a low pan place this under the sump hose which should be in the middle of your drum which then leads to the pump pull slowly but not enough for the water to push the hose of do this until empty the only other way is to take it outside and pull the outlet hose of this is the quicker and dryiest out of them all but do do the first part to c if the pump is faulty m8

If you have cleaned the drain pump and checked ALL the drain lines (this includes the drain line that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump), then you may have to replace the pump.
Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and cannot pump at the correct volume to complete the drain cycle, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced.
The following link explains how to replace the drain pump (if required):
Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:
All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I hjave listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need.
If you are having problems with unlocking the washer, there is a manual release you can use to get the door open: http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576511-door_jam_on_kenmore_elite_and_whirlpool_ The problem may just be a momentary glitch in programming related to the "F02" error code you are receiving. If there are any error codes present, the washer will not complete a cycle and will shut down. I would recommend double checking the drainage system one more time to ensure there's nothing caught in the pump impeller or any of the drain lines (you may have overlooked something), followed by replacement of the pump if the problem continues. This will hopefully cure any others issues you may be experiencing with the washer. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

you will need to remove the lid first then remove the screws that hold the control panel in place.then you will need to remove the door boot on the front panel. there will be two screws on the bottom of the panel that will need to be removed as well as the screws on the top of the panel.

First, unplug the washer and turn off the water. Get a small block of wood (about 6 inches high). Pull washer away from wall. Tilt back and place wood block under washer. This will allow you to access the 3 bolts on the bottom of the kick plate. Using a 1/4" socket, remove the bolts and set aside. Pull kick plate down. The drain pump is conveniently located in the front on the right hand side. Before proceeding, grab a garbage bag with no holes in it. You will use this to catch the water that will come out when you unscrew the filter. Place garbage bag under filter housing. Make sure to use one hand to keep the bag in contact with the filter housing (or ask your wife, kid, neighbor, etc to help with this) while unscrewing the filter in a counter clockwise direction. It will be difficult to turn due to the o-ring. Be patient. Turn it slowly. Water will start to come out as the filter is loosened. You may want to pause at this point and let the water drain. BEWARE! The will most likely have an offensive odor to it. Once all the water has drained, you can finish unscrewing filter and find your reward. I found a key, necklace, coins (mostly dimes), drill bit, nylons and lint. Be sure to clean the filter and housing with a bleach solution or vinegar solution before replacing filter. When replacing filter, be sure that it is tightened all the way down. If not properly tightened, the washer may leak when in use. Put kick plate back on and secure with the 3 bolts. Tilt back and remove wood block. Plug washer back in and turn on water. I would recommend running a clean cycle before using.
