Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer won't spin, appears to be out of alignment

Probably the bearing, right? I can't tell until I open it up. How do I open up the dryer portion of the Kenmore stacked washer/dryer "Laundry Center"?

I can take the plate off the back, but it doesn't give me access or visibility enough to see what's going on. Does the whole back come off? Or the top? Does anyone have a manual or diagram I can refer to?

Dryer is starting to squeak, does the dryer have a belt


yes they do...
Remove the panel below the dryer door to access the screws to remove the front of the dryer. Here is a breakdown of what you are looking for. The noise is probably from the rear bearing -http://www.repairclinic.com/referral.asp?R=154&N=1851

and front drum glide - http://www.repairclinic.com/referral.asp?R=154&N=343

Loud squealing sound when the basket first spins up this is a Kenmore stacked set, washer on the bottom, and dryer on top


Your problem could be a bad bearing...The drum rides in a bearing at the rear middle of unit..Its basically a plastic insert...When the dryer is first started the bearing will squeal until the plastic warms up..Normally you will hear the squeal at the back middle of dryer...Your problem may also be the belt tensioner...Again a plastic wheel with a metal bearing inside...Normally this squeal will be from start to finish..

Found two screws sheared off in the dryer, and now the drum won't spin


There are 6 screws inside the dryer drum. Three toward the center of the back hold the drum to the socket bearing. The three further out hold the heating element housing to the drum. With two of the bearing screws missing it might can mis align it enough so that the belt won't turn it. There are screws on the back and top to begin looking for the problem.

Zanussi ZJD1219 Washer/Dryer - noisy spin and dirty spots


Sounds like the main drum bearings have failed, and the marks on clothes are probably grease spots from the main bearings.
It is quite an involved repair, and not one that I would recommend you tackle yourself unless you are competent to do so,as it really is involved.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Machine won' spin


It sounds as though the main drum bearings have failed.
If you turn the drum by hand and it feels rough or you can feel it grating or rumbling, then the main bearings have gone.
Quite a major and expensive job to put right, you may find it more econonomical to purchase a new one.
Plz rate my comments.
thanks and a merry xmas.

Kenmore Washer/Dryer Combo purchased in late 2000


Call a local repair tech. I know one in Milwaukee :)

Seriously, your machine needs some possibly expensive repairs beyond a novice's skills. The dryer has a felt bearing around the front of the drum that is probably worn out. Check on the rear bearing and the belt at the same time. The washer may need a new transmission, belt, tub seal, and spin bearing. That's an involved repair. Expect to pay extra for labor, but the total bill should be less than the $800 - $1400 for a new machine.

Ariston washer/dryer. Dryer not working


probably 2 separate faults no heat is possibly either open circuit on the elements which are at the top of the machine, or open circuit thermal cut outs (up to 3 of) located also at the top of the machine near to where the element is and along the flow of the hot air, you can check these with a normal electrical multi-meter, unplug machine before testing as for the vibration on spin, just look for any loose suspension legs, and or twisted drum alignment, very difficult to work on due to lack of access but sometimes just re-tightening the legs up etc, could cure the vibration hope i have helped you to start somewhere take care to note in detail any wires or parts removed or in case of accidental removal
