Question about Maytag LSE7806A Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer

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?

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

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.

I have lse7806ace (stackable) and problem with water leak. I live in condo and this washer/dryer stackable in small closet. I can't reach locking tabs. This stackable is also on the pan (bottom). 'BTW,...

Remove the 2 screws which hold the lower front washer panel , lift out from the bottom and remove the panel.You can now run the machine and use a flashlight to see where the leak maybe. Usually the top tub seal under the plastic tub cover will leak. The other possibility is the main tub bearing and seal on the main tub where the transmission goes up through tub. Hope this helps.

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.

Dryer not heating

Hi, Can you get access to the top of the machine? If so take off the top make sure it is unplugged first,, Then at the rear there should be a fan with a belt drive on it? this should be free to turn? If not then this could be the problem. It could also be the plastic vent assembly that is located beneath the fan housing as they get blocked up with fluff this will need to cleaned out. You will need to take the back off for this exercise.
Good luck.................

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.

Spacers and Balance

take the lid off the spacers should be at the back but when u undue the big hex screws at the back they usually fall out anyway now easiest way to balance is by just using the front adjusters and not the back make slight adjustment on each leg just so you stop swaying from side to side you dont make the washer level level you need it to sloop slightly backwards anyway to stop water from coming out of the soap drawer another thing i do when leveling a washer is once u turn 1 leg with 1 hand hold the washer by the top so u stop it from rocking now adjust the other leg up until that 1 hits the floor and turn once more now try and rock it if it doesnt move from side to side now your done dont adjust the back legs more than likely it doesnt have legs at the back most have wheels on the back now anyway m8

Spacer and balance

The Malber has spacers but does not have a lever in the back so I am not sure what brand of machine you have. If it is the Malber, the spacers in the back are internal and need to be removed. They can be accessed by removing the hex screws and then removing the back panel. The spacers should fall to the bottom of the machine when the hex screws are removed. They can then be retrieved easily with the back panel removed. Be careful reaching into the back of the machine as there are many sharp edges in there.
