Question about Whirlpool LTE5243D Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer is fine, washer allows water to fill tub in every cycle, but after the water level is acheived, then nothing at all happens. There is no humming, no smell of smoke...as if it just died. Only 5.5 yrs. old with very limited use in a vacation home. Please advise

The lid switch has to be checked if it checks good then the water level switch.

Start here :)

Water runs but doesn't fill tub and wont spin if put on spin cycl


The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.

We've now had this happen three times and the exact same thing caused it all three times.

If the water level selector knob hasn't "clicked" into one of the given load levels on the control panel(i.e. the knob is in between levels) it will continue to fill until you discover water everywhere and turn the knob until it "clicks" into a level.

As far as I know, it has nothing to do with loose hoses or bad switches, it's bad design. There seems to be no safety mechanism to turn off the water if you over- or under-shoot the desired water level.

Water fills the tub then nothing happens.


it does not aggitate? Thats the cycle that allows the water to wash the clothes. It may be broken, I have had that happen a couple times. I would take the aggitator off and see if the teeth in the groves are worn out, It happen's when used alot. Commen problem and easy to replace.

Water will not stay filled in tub on rinse cycle


It sounds like a siphon issue.
Check that the drain hose does a high loop before it goes into the drain pipe. (ie. drain hose loops above the water level inside the tub). Make sure the drain hose is not pushed too far down into the drain pipe. Also if the drain hose is sealed to the drain pipe this will create an airlock and a siphon will occur, allow air to enter between drain hose and drain pipe connection.
This should help you but if there is still a problem let me know and I'll try to assist you further.
Good luck!

Kenmore 44832 hot water won't stop.


If your washer is overfilling, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Water-level switch
Water-inlet valve Adefect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able toshut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. Ifthis occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. Intime, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you needto replace the valve.

Water-level switch Adefect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that itcan't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switchsenses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragmdevice with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and thebottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tubincreases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When thepressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts offthe water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You caneither clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-levelswitch.

Kenmore stack washer and dryer


gabehart....sounds like belt is slipping. Replace it. The water pump is on a separate smaller motor so is not affected by the agitator/spin motor.

Kenmore 22956 top loader quit running after agite cycle


If the timer cycles your lid switch is ok.
most likely: motor Switch (on Motor), condenser next to motor, motor itself, or wiring going from the time to the switch,

It is probably cost efficient to replace the unit rather than trowing parts at it .

Smeg washer/dryer not filling


Check the pressure switch, aka water level switch. If this isn't the problem, it may be the water valve.

Maytag stacked washer/dryer Model LS7804


OK it may be one of 2 things. I would check the lid switch first. On some maytags the have a lid switch that if it is not working properly it will not let the washer fill. If it will not fill the washer will not wash because the pressure switch did not activate the timer to wash. If the switch checks good you might have a bad timer. If you open the control panel you will find a tech sheet with the wiring diagram. I would follow the fill cycle and check the components. You might also check the water valve to make sure its ok too. But its very rear that both the hot and cold would go at the same time. Good luck!
