Question about Whirlpool LTE5243D Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer
Do you mean filling the washer up or draining it out?i think you mean filling it up,on washers just the cold water is used to fill the washer on the rinse cycle,you can shut the water down and remove the cold water line and see if you can clean out the screen in the washer water valve,also while you have the hose off,stick it in the washer and open the valve to see how the pressure is,if it's coming out strong then the problem is in the washer and you should change the washer water valve,if it's coming out slowly then you have a problwm with the house water valve and need to change that out.let me know what you find

SOURCE: Slow Filling only in rinse cycle
Tony, the fact that you are not receiving any error codes tends to leave me to believe that your cold fill hose filter may be restricted. Going by your model number you can enter this mode by having the power on at the source and off at the console. Press and hold the lifecyle button and then push power button. You should hear 2 beeps and then the display go blank. You can test the hot and cold valves by pressing how dirty up (hot) and how dirty down (cold). If you find the cold valve slow as in your rinse check for restrictions. If it were the thermistor, I would think you would receive an error code..Good luck.

Following up my comment from yesterday, I took the machine apart and discovered that the black rubber cover on the valve that releases the cold water had perished and cracked, and wasn't opening properly.
I tested the hot and cold solenoids and everything checked out ok. Was just the cold valve sticking.
The wash cycle was working because I was using hot/warm water. As the rinse cycle needs cold water to get started, it was not working and the rinse and spin cycles wouldn't complete.
I have swapped the valves over for now (put the working hot one on the cold side and am using cold water only). It's working while I order a replacement...

It sounds like you have some buildup in the cold water valve screen. Where the hose connects to the washer there should be a screen inside the valve. Remove the cold water hose from the washer and clear any debri on the valve screen.
If this doesn't fix the slow cold water flow then you will have to replace the whole water valve assembly. The water valve is the piece that the hoses connect too and supply water to the washer.
If you have anymore questions about this please ask. I will be more than happy to help you out.
