I have a stacked Whirlpool Washer Dryer Model No.

I have a stacked Whirlpool Washer Dryer Model No. LTE5243DQ3. The problem is a severe clanking noise at the beginning of the spin cycle. Once the machine is spinning, the noise disappears. I have researched and found it may be the clutch or may be the drive. All the videos show a regular washer being tipped on its back to replace the drive or the clutch. Is it possible that you could tell which it is by hearing it?

I need to repair a faulty lid switch in my thin twin washer.

Hi, I need to repair a faulty lid switch in my thin twin washer. Not sure where I can find my model number or if all lid switches are the same for a whirlpool thin twin. I also live in a condo so the area where the machine is located is about as narrow as the actual washer/dryer so wondering how I unplug the machine without risking pulling on things like the waterhose and other connectorsJA: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: It's probably about 13 years old. It's the whirlpool Thin Twin - not sure where to find the exact model number because if it's on the back, I can't see it due to the narrow space.JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: It seems like an easy fix so it's a possibility. I also plan to reach out to contractors who would have a better sense of this stuff to get a quote. If it's not too bad, I'd probably be more relieved to get someone experienced on the matterJA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: The washer stops mid-cycle and while I've diagnosed it as a faulty lid switch, it might be something else. I'm just not sure how to go about securing a part and/or getting a repairman to look at it. I have a handy man but not sure if it is a specific enough of a problem to need someone who has experience with the exact model
