Whirlpool LTE5243DQ Reviews & Ratings

LTE5243DQ 24" Laundry Center with Gentle Wash and Dry System, Compact Thin Twin Electric Washer with 1.5 cu. ft. Capacity and Dryer with 3.4 cu. ft. Capacity, in White is rated 4.2632 out of 5 by 171.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from WHIRLPOOL THIN TWIN STACKING WASHER/DRYER This is the 4th thin twin stacking washer/dryer I have had in the last 23 years in my current condo. (The first and original washer/dryer was a GE, then I have had 3 Whirlpool Thin Twins.) This 4th one is especially noisy--the washer, that is--when the water is draining, then when it changes to the spin cycle, it makes a huge noise, then the spin cycle is especially noisy also. It is difficult to hear the television when the washer is going as my washer/dryer is located in the kitchen, only a few feet away from the living room where we watch television. I will probably contact the store from which I purchased it to inform them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fits in space I had a Maytag stack washer and dryer for over 20 years and loved it. The new whirlpool fits in the place, but it is smaller, the size of washer tub and dryer. It does not hold as large a load. I liked the way the Maytag door open to the washer and the dryer(the dryer door is very hard to open and close). The new machine is not a tall as the old one, so you have to bend over further to put the clothes in and to get them out. It needs to be a couple of inches higher. It washes and dries great. I just know you can make another stack machine like my old one and when you do please let me know. I will be in line to buy one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly large capacity for such a compact pair! We bought our new combo washer/dryer because our old (very old - parts no longer available) mixed set of jury-rigged compact washer with dryer stuck on a shelf decided to quit working. This was in our little "tin palace" in Florida where we spend the winter months. This was the only unit we could find that would fit without major carpentry. I was amazed at how much more would fit in the washer and how FAST the dryer spit out fresh, dry clothing. It is quiet, takes even less space than the compacts it replaced and does a great job. I'm so glad we bought it. I would recommend it to any one needing a space saving pair.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mediocre at best I have had this product since 5/1/13. It fits very well into a cabinet that we constructed for it. The dryer needs to be run twice for an amount of 7-8 pieces of clothing. A technician has to come out already to also fix the rinse cycle part of the system as it hangs up on that cycle and must be manually adjusted or it will just keep running water. Based upon the reviews I read on line I thought that this product would be better built using quality parts...wrong. Would not recommend to anyone who needs to do large amounts of laundry. It's adequate for a single person doing a little at a time...assuming all the cycles are in working order and the heating element does it's job.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too small! I have always purchased Whirlpool appliances and have been happy with them, but this washer/dryer stackable is too small to do an average size load of laundry. It doesn't do a good job washing, and takes at least two cycles to get clothes dried. Living in south Florida, I cannot take a chance that my laundry will get mildewed if not completely dried. The washer basket is already "shredding" - the plastic rim is peeling off, and the dryer has a brown "burn" stain on the aluminum plate in the dryer. I will have to purchase a new washer/dryer as soon as I can afford to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Basic, reliable, gets the job done. We bought this washer/dryer combo unit because it is exactly like the old one it replaces, and because it was the only unit that would fit in the tiny space that we have. The old one was at least 10 years old, and it was great. This new one looks the same, has the same features, and feels just as sturdy/reliable. It's lack of complex electronic features is actually a plus in my book, since it means less components that could possibly fail. The only complaint I have, and it is a minor complaint, is that the washer is somewhat loud while it is filling with water.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Thrilled Unfortunately the appliance that was in our residence when we bought this unit seven years ago was no longer working. We had t replace it with a unit that would fit the space, and no one makes a unit that was as large as the previous one, the dyer on top are all to deep, so in order to fit the space we took this smaller one, we took Whirlpool because it had an enamel tub, however it twists all the garments up, and also takes much longer to dry than my old one, would not recommend, have your engineers try to come up with a lager model that is not so deep!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful compact washer/dryer!! Love my 24 inch Thin Twin! Sturdy, simple, washes and dries very well. Compact which is what I wanted and needed for condo closet but holds more than you think and washes and dries it all very well. More than enough cycle options, and dryer miser works - it shuts off when dry so you don't have to guess nor over-dry the clothes. I hope to have this w/d for years to come and would buy it again without hesitation. Please don't stop making this basic w/d! I do not want fancy electronics or water level sensors that can break. This one fills with water and really cleans. It is normal agitator type noisy, not bad though. Dryer very quiet and buzzer at end is NOT bad like some say - it is a "buzz" and is just one time, quick. Perfect w/d!
