Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer drum not rotating

The dryer drum is no longer spinning properly. It has a terrible wobble and will not spin with any clothes inside the drum. There were 2 screws inside the drum after I removed the last load of clothes, and they seem to be part of a set of three screws which held the drum to the rotating head to spin it on the central axis. 
The screws will no longer hold the drum in place and they cannot be re attached. Any advice on how to fix this would be appreciated. Thanks

Drill holes all the way through the drum. Use carrage bolts to reattach the Bearing block through the drum into the block. Use lock washer and or locktite.

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire laundry center, model# FGX831CS, is not spinning water out of your clothes completely. I see that on the first spin cycle the drum is not spinning and is just making noise, and on the second spin cycle the drum spins to the left very slowly and loudly. First check to see if your washer is overloaded. Try taking some clothes out and spinning them again. Secondly, make sure that the load is not out of balance. Try rearranging the clothes to allow for proper spinning. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your dryer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Forgot to put the lint trap back into LG Ventless Dryer DLEC855W. Clothing might have gotten stuck inside. Dryer now making grinding noise and drum is moving slowly. Is it time to call a repairman?


The filter simply allows the dryer air to pass through and trap the lint so it will not collect in the exit tube or on the outer vent parts. If anything, the clothes inside the bin will just spin around and be there when you finish. The noise inside the dryer could be from something that was in the pant or shirt pocket and was floating around.

It's possible that the tub didn't drain properly in the allotted time and the remaining water is slowing your drum from coming to maximum extraction speed.

You most likely have a bad (lock wax motor) that can also cause the main control board to go bad. the lock motor sits above the washer door behind the panel. the control board sits inside the dryer above the drum to the right. go here to look up your parts

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.

Clothes dryer doesn't spin


The way most domestic clothes dryers are made, it's usually hard to determine that the heating part works without the drum turning.

But, chances are, the drum belt is broken.

Please give the specific model number of your unit for a more complete response.

I had this same problem. The drum spins on two small wheel which with the help of the drum belt support the drum. The wheels or their brackets may be broken and need to be replaced. These are accessable by taking the back off the dryer. Best to take the old/broken ones in to insure you get the exact replacement.
