Question about Whirlpool LTE5243D Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer
Great service; thanks for your forum....
Turns out my nightgown strap went OVER the agitator during last cycle. When I came back down to basement towards the end of the cycle I heard the whine, finally un-wound all the clothing that got tangled because of the strap trapped around agitator.
I tried it again; agitator seems to work the same but the continuous whine worries me.
Is there a way to remove the agitator to see what's going on? Any other suggestions?
Look at the top third of the agitator, there should be a ring that lifts up about a half inch , then the top of the agitator comes off.
Sometimes these will get cocked crooked when things get wound around them and will start making weird noises, sooo... pulling up the ring, taking the top off, replacing the top part and pushing the ring back down will stop the noise...

Usually a bearing/gearbox problem going bad will create a howling grinding noise. You'll definitely hear it in the spin cycle. These are an expensive fix and require special technician tools to disassemble the unit. The gearbox is a sealed unit. Most manufacturers warranty their unit's gearbox for 5 years regardless the warranty you got when you purchased the unit, so check into this before you void your warranty. (The manufacturer requires their factory authorized service technicians to do the replacement) All in all if you do the work yourself it'll be approx $250 for the parts and gearbox transmission. To have the work done is usually much more.
