head pressure or high side will increase and suction pressure will drop, depending on restriction you might see frost forming on the filter, anymore than three degrees is call for a filter change, many times its not the filter but cap tube is plugged, look for frost.

Washer Repair / Re: How to open the top lid of the Cabrio WTW660sb3

Front spring clips probably rusted.  Spray with penetrating oil, wait then take a stiff putty knife & tap sharply with a harmer 6 to 8 inches from side.  Inline with lid edges.
Also you can take screws from hinges off & slide lid forward
you were right first time. Two spring clips about 3-4inches in from each side that requires a putty knife to be pressed in(twards back of machine)so the lid can be pulled up.

with all these checks you have done, did you check the thermal fuse? :popcorn:
pull it out from the wall, unplug it remove the rear panel. You will find the thermal fuse on the blower housing.
Jump the fuse, see if it starts.

See the attachment for the tech sheet.

Have you tried a different timer setting?

Since you have checked the power and motor I am assuming that you have a meter.

Attach one meter lead to the L1 prong on the power cord and leave it there.
Use the most sensitive resistance scale on the meter and short the meter leads together before starting so you can see if there is a zero offset in the meter.
Set the timer to where it will not start. Now work your wat back through the motor circuit.
SO
L1 (black) should be 0 ohms at the terminal strip.
0 ohms at the BK (black) and BU (blue) on the timer.
0 ohms at both sides of the thermal fuse.
0 ohms at 4M (blue) at the motor.
About 2 ohms (start and run windings of the motor) at 5M (white or white/red) at the motor and one side of the start switch.
With the start switch activated about 2 ohms at the start switch (black) . Keep it activated.
About 2 ohms at the door switch blue and white with door closed.
About 2 ohms at the terminal strip white and Neutral prong of the line cord and machine frame.

With a little luck you will find the open.

You are supposed to use 45% silver for dis-similar metals...so steel to copper. I use sil-fos 15 for all copper joints and 45% for steel to copper. Mostly the drier and the high side out of the compressor. The 45% I have is flux coated but I always use some flux paste...except for that one time...which is why I always use flux paste.

Washer Repair / Re: how to remove cabinet on stackable whirlpool washer
« Last post by Sandyfeet on September 24, 2016, 09:12:50 PM »
I have the same issue. I can't open the posted PDF.
I have a whirlpool stack washer/dryer LTE6234DQ2. It stopped draining, still spins, with some internet searches, I've determined that the drive pump is bad. Purchased the part but can't figure out how to get the front panel off the washer.
Please help!
