Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Gas dryer drum will not spin

Belts and pulley (?) were replaced a year ago and seem fine.

When I press the start button, there is the buzzing sound that you hear when the cycle ends.

The dryer had a burning smell, so we unplugged it. Then I tried it again and it worked once, and now does not work at all.

Sounds like what you said. Time for a motor. The motor has an internal overload and will shut the machine off if the motor runs hot.
Good Luck

My dryer is making a buzzing sound when trying to turn it on. Not working. Cleaned lint in machine. Also made sure the door is closed. This happened a few weeks ago, didn't work for a few days and then...


the buzzing noise is the motor trying to start try a test leave the door open with one hand press the door switch with other hand spin the drum at the same time have someone press the start button if your dryer starts then and when it is cool it is the motor replace the motor

Won't start, but still makes noises


Sounds like your problem may be a broken belt.
If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
First you will need to unplug your dryer from the electric.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Replace the broken belt.
While you have the drum out, I would also recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil.
This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
You may also need to replace your starting switch.
Good luck,
I hope this helps
