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 4.381 out of 5 by 105.
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 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 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 4 out of 5 by from Its Great. I like this washer dryer combination because it is small and I was able to put it in my closet in the bathroom. It washes the perfect amount of clothes for me, and I was surprised how many garments I was able to put into the washer. I had never set the dryer on automatic with my previous dryer because the clothes never were completely dry. With this dryer every time I use the automatic setting my clothes are dry, and it doesn't seem to take that long. Not having to run up and down the stairs is what I love most about it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was the only washer/dryer that fit in the space we had and it turns out to be the perfect machines for our use. The machines are quiet, easy to use, and just the right size, not only fit, but also for size of loads. I have found only one slight problem. Because I am tall, I have some difficulty seeing the front of the washer tub, but that is only a minor problem. I've only had them a couple weeks, but have used them a lot and have found nothing I dislike about them. Clothes are very clean and perfectly dry with the automatic (energy saving) setting.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too Noisy We had a previous version of this washer dryer and it was great and lasted for 16 years. The heating elements in the dryer stopped working and rather than replace it we bought an entirely new unit. Mistake! The new unit is so noisy on the wash cycle that I think something is wrong with it - from the first usage. I should probably exchange it - but there is no guarantee a new one would be less noisy. It is used in a second home - condo.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from "Washeteria" great for my small space I really enjoy this combo washer/dryer. While it's capacity is somewhat small and the washer is somewhat noisy, I've had the unit for two months and have been pleased with it's overall performance. One of my primary concerns was whether the small dryer would actually dry my clothes - so far it's worked perfectly. The design of the model could be updated a bit, it looks a bit dated, but for a small space, it's a great little machine.
