Pretty much exactly what guest above me said. I have a lsq8543jq1 also, was stopping after agitation.

At first thought it was something more serious, since the dial seemed to make a humming/grinding/buzzing noise when it was switching to agitation cycle, but that seems to just be a timer before the drain/spin cycle kicks in.

I had a washer full of water, so rather than wait till I could get a part (or hand drain -what a pain), I just grabbed a paper clip and rigged the switch so it thinks the door is shut and voila, drains and finishing cycle as I type.

The switch is a safety device to prevent accidents; bad injuries could result if the door is opened while the washer is in spin cycle. I don't recommend this as a long term solution - especially if you have kids. I have 2 and will be ordering the new part asap.

Replace the lid switch. This is a top-loader, correct?? If it filled with water, went through agitation, then just stopped before pump-out, the lid switch is bad. Lift the lid. You will see a small rectangular shaped hole on the right side. The lid switch actuator is there. When you close the washer lid, you should hear a click just before the lid fully closes. If not, your lid switch is broken and not actuating. Good Luck ! ! !

My whirlpool washer seems to be letting water back flow from the drain line.


sounds like the drain line is too low it needs to be higher than the water level when running a full load...you can check this buy filling with water and stoping the cycle and see where the water stops draining im sure it will stop at the level of your drain line in the back of the washer. the drain line in the back of your washer should come out of the bottom of the washer and then go up to a drain pipe..if its lower than the full water level of the washer then gravity will take over and drain the water... i hope this helps

My Whirlpool LTE5243DQ1 has stopped working, neither the washer or dryer will work or make any kind of noise, I have checked the power cord and the fuse box and both are working properly what else could...


Make sure the dryer isn't full of lint behind the panels; throughout the components of the lint extraction and back in the wiring components of the dryer. Mine stopped working and a thorough cleaning of the above solved the problem. My washer was working, however, before this process. I first checked circuit breakers (no help) and the thorough cleaning did the job. If there is overheating, there is some kind of safety shut off.

Washer will not drain


Empty turn on side can be a couplke of things. Check drive transmission and water pump for obstruction/binding and for slippage replace parts as needed.

My washer stopped in the middle- and wont turn back on- full of water right before the spin cycle! I have checked the breaker, unplugged it, pulled the knob and tried to recycle it- NOTHING! it is only 7...


It doesn't work at all If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these: No power Lid switch No power Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped? Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.

Washer stopped


Check the "lid check switch". Replace it if it is bad. Had the same problem and in my case it was the lid check switch.
