Question about Maytag LSE7806A Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Need to get to the back of the unit...

My washer/dryer is in a closet and I need to get to the back of the dryer. I asked a friend and he suggested pulling the washing machine out off the rails and working from under the dryer.

How do I pull the washing machine out from under the dryer? I see in the installation manual that the dryer stands on a bracket and the washer slides in, but mine don't appear to want to come apart! Is there a locking mechanism somewhere?

There's also a lip on the floor right in front of the washer so i need to pull it out and up slightly, which is making this even MORE difficult than it already is.

any tips?

    My vent connection came off and i need to get the back of the stackables.

    is it possible to pull the whole assembly with the rack ? I tried to pull from the bottom but could not. Also mine sit inside a 2" catch pan (is that what you call it ?)..... which makes it even tougher to deal with this.

    Appreciate some suggestions.

There are no locking mechanisms. There are two things to watch out for. The lower outer arms of the frame slide to the inside of the front washer panel, but are not attached other than by tension. Also, the brcket frame and the washer both have their own leveler feet. It is easily possible to raise the frame so tightly into the washer that it in effect has the washer sitting on it, making it almost imposible to slide out the washer. If necessary, lower the frame levelers to create a small gap all the way around between the lower frame arms and the washer. Note there are electrical control cables between the control panel and the washer that must be disconnected to pull it out.

Drum will rotate but dryer will not heat up everytime

I think you have a clog in your exhaust duct. Cleaning it will require that you pull the machine from the closet. I thnk you will find a lot of sand at the bottom of your duct.

Is there a trick to installing a stackable washer and dryer in a closet? the gas vent and gas line as well as the electricity must be installed when the dryer is in place.?

yup theres a trick.. the trick is to be able to fit behind the unit once stacked to make final connections then climb out and push the units back into the hole..
the main problem is not kinking or otherwise damaging the vent or the gas line when pushing the thing back, hence the climb over make the connections then climb out attack..
never had any luck trying to connect it up while out in the open then stuff it into the hole..
it can be done, just takes time, and patience..
hope this helps,
best of luck,

Whirlpool heavy duty thin twin broken heater, the dryer just stop heating, please help I can repair my self, unit is about 6 years old and it works grat

Hi, thanks for the inquiry.

If it's a gas dryer, it's most likely a thermal fuse. Basically, the voltage has to go through the fuse before it goes to the ignitor.

If it's an electric, it's either the heating element or the thermal cut-off, most of the time.
You'll proabably have to get to the element and fuse from the back. What I would do is just tilt the entire unit forward, if it's in a tight closet.

Best of luck and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Stacking Frigidaire Washer Dryers

no you do not need to put them on rollers. yes it would make it easier to service them but rollers would not be stable enough to keep the washr from shaking in spin cycle.

Replacing a siphone break

Disconnect unit from its power source before servicing!
The lower half (washer) can be pulled away from the upper section, allowing full access to the unit. Remove the front panel by taking out the 2-phillips head screws at the bottom of the front panel, pull outward at the bottom of the front panel to disengage the hanger clips from the top panel. Remove the 2-3/8"hex head screws from each corner of the side panels connecting to the top panel. The top panel can then be tilted up and back on its hinges, so that acces may be gained to the siphon break. 4-5/16" hex head screws secure the 2 halves of the siphon break to the back panel and are accessible from the outside of the back panel.
Follow the link below to see an image of the siphon break assy. along with ordering information.

Stakcing Issue

   Front load washers require a rock solid floor.  Anything less will add to vibration and noise.  If you feel the washer spinning when standing in the room the floor is not solid enough.  
   Make sure all 4 legs are solid on the ground and that they have the lock nuts tightened.  When unit is spinning try running a front leg up and down a little and see if this changes the sound.
