Question about Whirlpool LTE6234D Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer
Upon filling with water at the water level setting, water stops filling but nothing happens but an electrical hum in the vicinity of the motor. Lid switch has been by-passed for years. Suspect capacitor or motor. Capacitor easier to replace. Should I replace both?
My suggestion is to go get a new door switch for your washing machine.
Secondly, open up the front of the machine (you will need to take the top of it off.). In front of the washingmachine you will see two big hoses. One is your washer tub inlet valve, and the other is your exhaust valve. When you disconnect this, be aware that you will get a whole tub of water onto your floor so be prepared.
There is two snaps that holds the pump that these hoses are attached to. (Make sure your power supply is disconnected.
Look inside of the pump. The other day we had someone's wire to a bra, stuck in it, and that caused the pump to lock up the machine. I had to remove the wire and put the pump back on.
If you have the pump off, and can plug the machine back in safely, turn it on, you might hear the motor spin. If it does, put the pump on after you clear it of debris. Make sure the snaps are on snug like it supposed to. Put your hoses back on properly. If it is off a small amount, water will drip.
assemble your machine back together and see if this works. If not, a service tech will need to come out to see what is the problem besides this.
