SOURCE: LTE6234 Whirlpool Twin Thin Timer Broken?

The problem I have with my Whirlpool ThinTwin is that when I pull the washer knob the water does not start filling even though there is water in the apartment unit. The dryer works so i know there is power and not a circuit breaker issue as I have checked that as well.

When I turn the knob and pull in any position nothing happens. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: ge timer on washer is broken

If it no longer clicks, the timer assembly will need to be replaced. If just the knob broke off, the timer should be good.

SOURCE: How to remove the washer cycle selection/start-stop knob on a Whilpool Heavy Duty Thin Twin stacked washer dryer

I believe the selector knob on a Whirpool just has to be turned counter-clockwise with the selector pushed in. It will spin off the shaft and then the outer indicator dial will pull off. The shaft also has a keyed slot that will only allow the dial to be removed and installed one way, so there should be no question as to how it goes back on.

Was there a reason as to why you are removing the washer selector knob? If this is a simple matter of replacing a broken water temperature selector, you shouldn't have to remove any of the control knobs to gain access to the selector. The entire front panel comes off by removing the screws holding it in place. That way you can access the broken selector from behind the front panel much easier. Just remove the panel right above the washer top (under the dryer) and it should expose the front panel mounting screws. Remove these screws and the front panel comes off. Just make sure the unit is unplugged before you begin. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.

SOURCE: Kenmore Series 80 Washer timer knob spins

Something in the timer came apart. Timer needs replaced. When in good working order, the timer should ONLY ever be turned clockwise..Reversing this could break it.

I am looking to buy a used 4 year whirlpool duet washer and dryer. Do you need transport bolts to move either? Also what capacity is the washer and dryer


The transport bolts are required to be installed before transporting the machines. This is to support the suspension system to prevent damage to the machines during transportation.

The washer has a capacity of 9.0 kg or 19.8 lbs with a volume of 3.7 cubic feet. The dryer's capacity is 7.0 cubic feet.

WHAT IS THE SIZE OF MY WHIRLPOOL WASHER? model number LXR9245EQ2


We have the same model. We plan to purchase a replacement washer, and tank size is a major factor.

Machine manuals are available at www.whirlpool.com. It's great Whirlpool has the docs available online, but there was no indication of tank volume for this model found in the manuals: Parts, User, Instructions.

I decided to figure it out by filling the washing machine tank manually counting the number gallons of water dumped in. I managed to dump in 23 gallons before risking overflow. I don't recommend this approach since the specified water level limit for the tank assembly may be lower than the perceived water level limit. This volume test was performed on a machine that's being disposed.


Google says 1 US gallon is equivalent to approximately 0.1337 cubic feet. Applying this ratio to the number of gallons poured in, the volume is 3.08 cubic feet. If 24 gallons, then 3.21 cubic feet.

I'm sure the tank is not 4.0 cubic feet since that would have required another 7 gallons of water, beyond the 23 already poured in, making a mess on the floor, and potentially wetting machine wiring and other hardware that should remain dry. Even if we account for the space occupied by the agitator, it's unlikely an additional 7 gallons of water could be added without significant overflow.

4.0 cubic feet is approximately 30 gallons.

We're going on the assumption our LXR9245EQ2 washer is a 3.2 CF machine.

Whirlpool Gas Dryer Timer problem


OK, this timer is designed to spin in both directions and, if you have to advance this timer in any way to complete a cycle, you will need to replace this timer asap.

In most cases, the mechanism will fail, causing this non advancement stage(stalled timer mech).

replacing the timer will fix this issue.
