Question about Whirlpool LTE5243D Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer
My washer only fills water but doesn't start to agitate and also can't drain. When I pull out the drain pipe no water comes out. Sounds like a lid switch problem right?
How do I open the washer to fix the lid switch without pulling it out of my closet?? Please help. Thanks for your help.
The switch seems okay on mine and the lid lock light was on.What now?

Can you temporaly fix the lid switch until you can find another one? Just to make it work for a day or so.

The lid switch can be changed without removing from closet for sure,you can remove the angular access panel between the2 units youll see 2 brass clips holding the cabinet to the top, slide the entire top toward you to remove. its located under there. there may be 2 screws across the rear of main top holding down as well but yea pulling out will get you kn more access to any component

The most likely failure is the water level pressure switch or a failed lid switch. If the washer will drain and spin then it's not a failed lid switch. If it will not drain and spin the likely failure is the lid switch.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has 3 wires attached to it, V (violet), P (Pink) and a T (tan) wire. When the tub is empty of water, contact V&P are closed to allow the tub to fill with water. Once the water level reaches the desired setting, contact V&P opens and then contact V&T closes to start the motor agitating. So, with this said if you were to unplug the washer and remove the wires from the water level pressure switch and test to see if terminals V&T is closing by using an ohm meter would indicate if the contact is closed or not.
