Question about Whirlpool LTE5243D Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

My model YWET3300SQ1 Thin Twin Stacking washer dryer has a mind of it's own. Every 30 or so days it reverses the hot or cold cyle washing and spins everything in a hot rinse cycle. I have had 3 repair guys out to try and fix the problem. Replaced a module sensor that lasted for a month and the other repair guy reversed my hot and cold hoses that really didn't fix the problem. If I want a cold wash I have to set it on hot and run over when it starts to put water in for the rinse cycle and pour cold water into the tub to help balance the hot water that is pouring in. This is ridiculous. The store where I bought it will not help me.

Your most likely suspect is the "ATC" switch... it is the only part that can interfere with the operation of the valve. ATC stands for automatic temp. control: Whirlpool Washer Dryer Combo Temperature Control Switch WPW10114118
They suck!

SOURCE: washer

The symptoms you describe are typical of a broken lid switch. The lid switch is located under the washer top on the right hand side. It is activated through a slot by a small plastic piece on the lid called a "lid strike". Make sure the lid strike is still installed and not broken. Make sure the lid switch itself is not loose, as well. There are two mounting screws along the washer tub opening that hold it in place. If the screws become loose the switch will not make contact with the lid strike when the lid is closed. If you need to replace the switch or lid strike, the parts are available at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Washer Top and Lid" heading on the next page. The lid switch is listed as item number 22 (part #3355806) and the lid strike is listed as item number 16 (part #358684). Both parts combined will cost you about $30. If you have further questions and/or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Check the lid switch, the machine will not spin or drain without the lid switch being activated. You should be able to see if the switch actuator is broken or missing, look in the slot where the lid's plunger drops into, if you can see the gray plastic actuator, set the machine in the spin cycle and try to depress the switch with a flat screwdriver, if it runs, the switch is cracked and needs replaced, if the actuator looks fine, and you can hear a distinct "click" when you press down on it, it may be a problem in the timer, but check the lid switch first, that's most likely the problem.

The inlet valve that the hoses attach too the solenoid for the hot side may be stuck closed or clogged with sediment. May need new inlet valve.

Whirlpool ite6234d thin twin could someone tell me in detail where the belt is located in the washer?


I can not find your model number that you posted.
I can tell you that all whirpool thin twins up to last year were direct drive with no belt except for the dryer section. Whirlpool stackers from the early eighties did have a washer belt if yours is this old replace the entire machine.

My Thin Twin stackable washer & dryer Model # LTE5243DQ3 is having problems w/the washer spin cycle. I'm thinking I may just need a new timer because it goes through all the cycles except the spin...


Hello,

Before wasting money on a timer that wont be returnable once it is removed from the packaging please respond to me and tell me does the washer do everything including draining, and the only thing it will do not do is spin
or will it wash but not drain and spin
their are 2 posibilities based on your response and neither is the timer

Thanks,
Gene

Washer temp setting changes by itself


I also have a Whirlpool washer/dryer for my condo, although I don't know the model number of mine. I had the same problem -- after it was precisely a year old, suddenly one day the hot and cold started coming out reversed. I was able to fix mine by more or less temporarily fiddling with the water pressure. What I did was one time, when the rinse cycle was running and the washer was filling up with hot water (grrrr...), I completely shut off the valve supplying hot water. So at that point the water stopped filling into the washer, and then I started tinkering with the cold water, twisting the valve off and on a few times. Then BINGO, suddenly the cold water "kicked in" and for the remainder of the rinse cycle, it filled the washer with cold water. I then turned the hot water valve back on, and since then it has been running correctly.

Water not filling on washer


the inlet filter is probably clogged restricted and/or inhibited flow of water into your machine.
These things happen, and cleaning out the filter is a good first step to finding the problem.
