Question about Whirlpool LTE5243D Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer

2 Answers

Dryer venting I purchased a condo that has this model of whirpool stacked washer/dryer. The dryer has no apparent venting when I look at the back and top of the dryer. Is this the normal design for this model? I notice that there appears to be a heat vent (not the lint vent) and it has a build up that looks slightly burnt. Any information on this would be appreciated. Thanks

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.


The link below, will take you to the page showing that the dryer may ducted using the side exhaust kit, which is why you are unable to see it. It should be visible on the exterior of the house as a vent hood.

The burned lint on the heat screen should be cleaned and your dryer interior cleaned to prevent a lint fire. Then the vent should be cleaned to the outside. Below is link that provides pdf. format owner's manual downloads. click on your complete model number and you can download a manual for your combo unit.

Make sure you have 220 volts first at dryer. Heating element is on back of dryer. You'll need a test meter to see what's wrong unless you can see broken wire in element itself. Thanks, please leave feedback or contact me again for more info if you need it.

I have stacked ours too, though after 5 years we have not had any issues with the pressure. I would suggest checking the screws holding the hinge in place as they may have loosened or been tightened with the door not properly lined up.
