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.

SOURCE: How to remove the washer cycle selection/start-stop knob on a Whilpool Heavy Duty Thin Twin stacked washer dryer

I believe the selector knob on a Whirpool just has to be turned counter-clockwise with the selector pushed in. It will spin off the shaft and then the outer indicator dial will pull off. The shaft also has a keyed slot that will only allow the dial to be removed and installed one way, so there should be no question as to how it goes back on.

Was there a reason as to why you are removing the washer selector knob? If this is a simple matter of replacing a broken water temperature selector, you shouldn't have to remove any of the control knobs to gain access to the selector. The entire front panel comes off by removing the screws holding it in place. That way you can access the broken selector from behind the front panel much easier. Just remove the panel right above the washer top (under the dryer) and it should expose the front panel mounting screws. Remove these screws and the front panel comes off. Just make sure the unit is unplugged before you begin. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.

SOURCE: How do I remove the front bottom panel of my Whirlpool gas dryer

Yahoo! I figured it out on my own. There are two clips on top that are recessed. I had to use a regular screwdriver and push the clips down and pull the panel out at the same time. It was easy after I realized what needed to be done.

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...

I have a thin twin #LTE6234D that squeals when it starts. I need to know how to replace the belts that are slipping.


Hi,
Which unit squeals when you start it, washer or dryer? Washer is direct drive and this noise would be from the pump area. Dryer could be Idler pulley or rear roller issue. If the belt is the issue, the front of the dryer would need to be removed in order to replace the belt, control panel needs to be removed first the disconnect the door switch. Remove the 5 screws to the front panel and replace the belt. But I would think its a idler or roller issue first over just a belt.
Good Luck

Whirlpool Thin Twin YLTE6234DQ2 washer is leaking water from the bottom. I need to remove the front panel to see what the problem is but can't seem to get it off. I have looked at suggestions to push in...


have you looked near the bottom of the front panel near the floor,there are 2 or 3 screws located at a 45 degree upward angle(to hide them from view) so they dont show,remove these and the front should hinge upward like an auto hood and the clips near the top should let go when its raised far enough upward
