Question about Whirlpool LTE5243D Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Wash cycle does not start!

I just moved into a new apartment that has a Thin Twin (LTE5243D)Whitlpool gas washer/dryer. When I went to start it for the first time, the wash cycles will not work. When I try to select a wash cycle, then pull the knob to start, nothing happens. The only thing that will work is the RINSE cycle will turn on when I pull the knob.

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

so ya know i have beena appliance repair technician for over 30 years

Washer stops in mid cycle


This is probably normal. There is a natural pause between agitating and draining, and again between draining and spinning. Hope this helps!

You need to check the suspension of the washer, it could be pads, suspension springs, or even the shocks.

Washer does not drain water


You have a sock in the pump. If no noise in spin you have a bad lid switch.

How can I fix my whirlpool thin twin washer?


It almost sounds like your motor is kicking out on overload. The fact that it starts agitating after the fill can rule out the pressure switch. You have installed a new timer so we should be able to rule that out. It's possible that your pump is binding, which is attached directly to your motor and causing it to overheat. To tell for sure you would have to check the motor to see if it's getting power when it cuts out. Check your terminal block where the power cord comes in to see if all connections are secure. Other possibilities could be the clutch and brake assy. With out being there too see the problem, this is where I would start.
