Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Very loud after stacking.

I've had my washer/dryer combo for a few years sitting on pedistals. I just stacked them last night, and when I put a load in the dryer this morning, it runs, but it's extremely loud. It's making a grinding sound, medium to high pitch, with a little bit of stutter as you turn it off.

    The kit from Sears came with sticky rubber pads. I checked that the set was balanced with a level, and even took off the lower front panel to look for something rubbing inside. However, when I put a few shims under the front of the dryer the sound lessened significantly and at times it is non existant. So... I'm sure that mine is a temporary solution, but I don't know what else to do other than call a Sears tech and dish out a small fortune. Any other suggestions are welcome!! :)

I assume you used the kit for stacking and removing the top of the washer and installing the plates?



You might need some sticky rubber pads to stop metal to metal contact and some duct tape around the vent exiting the dryer where it meets its back panel. This is common, you could go specific or browse ace hardware and find a compatible source.

Washer Dryer Stacked Combo won't start and didn't drain properly.


Hello Joshua, thank you for your post!
From my understanding your Frigidaire laundry center is not starting and did not drain properly. It is possible that this could be a miscommunication within the laundry center and a reset may help clear that out for you. In order to reset your laundry center you would need to disconnect power from it for at least ten minutes. If that does not help your laundry center you may need to seek assistance from a professional technician for proper repairs. I hope this is helpful and if you should need further assistance please feel free to reconnect. -Matt

I have a stacked Frigidaire FEZ831CA washer/dryer combo and when running the dryer it makes a very high pitched (AND LOUD) screeching sound. Any ideas as to what might be the problem? Thanks, Sean


screeching sound
Sean, Bad felt gasket body to drum, if belt drive on dryer, it could be worn and slipping, making a screech, or if not the belt, the drum may have a worn bearing on its hub allowing it to run crooked and rub where it should not.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Want to know if I can stack a kenmore elit gas dryer on a kenmore elite washer and on top of a 10 inch pedistal or will it be too tall?


The appliances were not designed to be stacked so I would not attempt it if anything I would build a shelf (ledge) to put the dryer on, then bracket it to the wall but be careful of the height especially with a gas dryer and be sure to have plenty of space for airflow. Good luck

Stacked washer dryer


It sounds like the belt or a pulley!
Anything more and it's not worth fixing if it's 10 years old .
Then better off replacing it with a newer machine which will be much more efficient!

Not worth the money to fix!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Clothes getting caught on inside of dryer


There are a couple of guide wheels in the back of the dryer. when they get worn out the tub will have excessive play and will trap clothes inside. Just remove the front cover loosen the belt and remove the drum. the worn wheels will be easy to spot. It is an easy and cheap fix.
