Question about Whirlpool LTE5243D Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer
The barrell is completely loose and I read that it has come off the struts can this be repaired through the back of the washer..or does it have to be laid on its back with access from underneath ..I hope not if so it has to be moved outside?
The struts, shocks, springs...they are called different things depending on who you speak to. Apparently on the heavy duty thin twin stackable units they are all bad and last for about 13 months just after the manufacturers warranty, this is common knowledge among Whirlpool technicians and even the replacement parts that are being installed are not performing for the lifetime they were designed. I have contacted a repair service and they are scheduled for the middle of next week and over the phone he ballparked the estimate at about $300.00.

You don't need to access from the back. The top and front panels of the washer can be removed for full access to replace the suspension springs that support the tub barrel.
