Question about Whirlpool LTE6234D Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer

3 Answers

Water fills to proper level but agitator doesn't come on instead there is a grinding noise, when I move control to just prior to rinse cycle water drains properly, but still just grinding or buzzing n

Washer fills with water and stops at the proper level but when agitator should start it doesn't, instead I hear a grinding noise, when I move dial to just prior to rinse cycle water drains with no problem. I noticed the previous load I did when I went to put clothes in dryer the load was very wet like it hadn't spun properly, is this an issue with the gear box? Thanks

Fws445rf1 washer didnt stop filling and flooded my apt and it doesnt aggitate when it is washing,the whole thing just spins inside instead of moving back and forth,what are the most likely reasons for...


if it's a top-loader, then the water level sensor is probably failed! if an older machine- there's a plastic tube (which you can't see from the outside) that measures the column of water in the tub of your machine, and triggers the agitate and spin, and rinse cycles of your machine.
when it's in wash cycle the water level is lower, then it spins and drains and the rinse cycle pumps in more water (makes sense!), then drains & spins, then re-rinses at the same water level. your water level sensor is defective, probably. allowing it to over-fill.
it detects the water level as 'spin' and doesn't agitate!
my theory- no guaranty! if it's old get a new washer or a good used one! this is not a problem i've encountered, just a guess. good luck!

Agitator starts before water fills. When adjusting


There may actually be more than one setting on the diaphragm control, or you may two diaphragms each with their own setting control. I hope this helps you! Good luck!

Wahing machine will not wash


the entire agitator is not moving during the wash??? or just the top section that looks like a big plastic corkscrew???
or is the unit actually just filling with water, making the motor running noises and going thru the motions of running a cycle yet not actually moving anything within the unit, then draining out as normal??
if just the top section of the agitator is free spinning instead of ratcheting as normal you'll need to replace the agitator dogs if present.
if however the units just filling and draining of water with no inner movement then more likely the drive coupling is bad and needs replacement..
hope this helps,
best of luck,
ttfn

No water enters on rinse cycle


I was partially wrong on my diagnosis. No cold water enters on either the wash or the rinse cycles. I also heard odd noises from the inlet valves. I realized the cold water valve was not opening. I've ordered the mixing valve and plan to replace it as soon as it comes in.

Kenmore Model 110.26712693 stuck on agitator cycle


Your air pressure hose going to the water level switch is pinched.
Open the top control panel to access the clear plastic tube and relieve the pinched area.

KENMORE ELITE TOP LOAD

Washer stops, won't fill, rinse or agitate


• Check the following:
Is the power cord plugged into a grounded 3 prong outlet?
Is the indicator on the Cycle Control knob properly lined up
with a cycle? Turn the Cycle Control knob to the right slightly
and pull to start.
Are the water inlet valve screens clogged?
Are both the hot and cold water faucets turned on?
Is the water inlet hose kinked?

• Does the water level seem too low, or does the washer
appear to not fill completely? The top of the agitator is
much higher than the highest water level. This is normal and
necessary for clothes to move freely.
• Has a fuse blown or is the circuit breaker open? If problem
continues, call an electrician.
• Are you using an extension cord? Do not use an extension
cord.
• Is the washer in a normal pause in the cycle? The washer
pauses for about 2 minutes during certain cycles. Allow the
cycle to continue. Some cycles feature periods of agitation
and soak.
• Is the washer overloaded? Wash smaller loads.
• Is the lid open? The lid must be closed during operation.
Washer will not agitate or spin with the lid open.

Whirlpool washer Mod# TWAS750PQO, Ser# CR3520005


is it possible that the washer was overloaded? if so the agitator has little plastic "gears" that move the agitator one way only, they could have made the sound. 
you can also check under the washer to see if anything (like a coat-hanger or something) is interfering with moving parts of the washer
