Question about Whirlpool LTE5243D Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer

Whirlpool stacked washer dryer LTE 5243DQ6

My contractor just hooked this unit up and when the dryer is turned on it is extremely noisy. It turns and heats up but the noise is unbearable. If it helps figure out what is wrong, it was shipped on its side (not upright). Could something be mis-aligned?

Thank you in advance.

    Thank you for reply. If is helps, this W/D is brand new and has never been used. Unfortunately it is out of the warranty perior coverage. Nothing should be worn since it is NEW.

I got anothe solution.
First turn the power off than open the back panel of the dryer.you will need to open the blower assembly cover on the left and you will notice the cove has weather strip all around it.
Make sure the weather strip doesn't touch the blower wheel than put it back together.Good luck

MAKE SURE NO SHIPPING BLOCKS WERE LEFT ON ALSO TURN THE INSIDE DRUM BY HAND TO SEE IF IT TURNS SMOOTH,YOUR BACK DRUM ROLLERS MIGTH BE OFF,THANKS-MIKE

Open dryer door, and reach up to the top of drum and push on it very gently. If it moves more than 1/4 inch or more, the dryer guides needs to be replaced. Sadly the guides are for front and rear so that means the drum has to be removed and the guides in the rear has to be changed first.

It will involve some time so be very careful! Another thing is to check for the dryer idler arm pully. if this pully is squealing/worn out, it will also need to be replaced at the same time you replace the guides.

My suggestion is to call your contractor and make them come out to see if they damaged it. Your local appliance repair store can also sometimes help.

I think you have to but them separate from a hardware store. They come in dirrerent lengths. If you purchased one it seems that you would know that by reading the instructions.

Whirpool Thin twin with noisy dryer?


You could have a wore out dryer belt wich could cause the drum to feel lose, Also you could try checking the glides underneath the front of the drum to make sure they did'nt slip out of position. This helps the drum turn with little or no friction.

You probably have a balance problem. You will have to get a service tech to replace the shock absorber/stabilizers (there are 3) in the unit.

Agitator very noisy while washing


There is a small roller that tightens the drive belt for the drum inside this unit. If it is loose it makes a squeaking noise. Tightening this may solve your problem. You will have to take off the back panel to do this repair
