Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

I need a model number for the Whirlpook thin twin (washer/dryer stacked combo). The only numbers I can find are the Manufacturers # and Serial #. I've looked on the top, inside and outside of the both the washer and dryer, around the hinges. Is it inside the covering of the washing machine?

    Thank you for the info but my machine is about 5 years old. I looked in all the spaces indicated on the website. Still nothing. I compared the washer/dryer user instruction booklets with the one that came with the my unit. They don't appear to be the same. The number in the lower left on the booklet on my model is 8578179.

    Any other suggestions?

    Thank you for getting back with more info. I'll pass that on to my repairman and hopefully he can find the parts that I need for the repair.

    I greatly appreciate the help. It sure was easier than I thought it would be. It was enough information for my repairman to order the correct parts for my washer. Thank you so much!! I've already spread the word about your website!

    The code mentioned in the manual indicates that your washer/dryer combo is Whirlpool LTE5243D/LTE6234D/LTG5243D/LTG6234D. Hope this helps...

Frigidaire Washer Dryer Combo (Stacked) We had to have the power shut off to our house. Now that it is turned back on, our washer dryer combo won't start.

Thank you for your inquiry, Caroline!

From the information you have provided your Frigidaire laundry center is no longer working. I understand that you had to shut off power to your house and now your laundry center is not coming on. It sounds like you could have a possible short within your timer. I would recommend performing a reset on your laundry center and you can do that by unplugging the power cord for roughly ten minutes. If you continue to have issues with your dishwasher can you provide me with your model number? In order to locate your model number you can find the serial tag and that should be located on the inside wall of your dishwasher. I look forward to assisting you further. -OOS

On this particular model you drop the splash plate like thisthemobilian_701.jpg
once you have that out of the way you would then remove the cabinet by pop some sclips like on a direct drive washerthemobilian_702.jpg
Then the case comes of like this:
Your model number ain't a good one so I just had these photos in my PC and I have worked on one like that before. If the panel dont come off the front like this:
themobilian_704.jpgthen it is like the photo above. See kenmore makes a stack frigidaire washer dryer like this here but they also make a direct drive thin twin.
Here is a service Manual
I believe it is you it covers 4 models and is 136 pages

My washer does not work

Sounds like you may have a lid switch problem. Without a model number, I really can give you a part number (Kenmore Stacks are made by two companies, Frigidaire and Whirlpool) or a way to get to it. It is right under the lid. Check the top and be sure that the plunger that goes into the hole isnt broke or missing. If you need further help, send me the model number (will start with 417 if its a Frigidaire or 110 if its a Whirlpool) and will try to get you a little more information. The job on either unit isnt that hard, and parts are pretty inexpensive. Let me know. Jim
