Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Rattle Burning Smell

I have a stackable Kenmore washer dryer combo model 417. It was making a rattle noise and opened up the dryer door and sparks appeared to fly out the holes from the back. Not sure if something mananged to get through lint trap (I don't see any holes) or if a belt could have came off that would be making fan not work etc. Would like know how, how to take appart this type dryer to check belt / bearings etc. - I'm hoping maybe something just got inside dryer somehow and it's no big deal.

It appears your blower fan has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

The dryer is majing a horrible noise. what could this be? Calvin


If the sound seems to come from the front of the drum it's probably the felt guides. The bottom one will wear first and make a grinding, rattle like sound. You can access it by removing the front panel which includes the door. It fits around the drum at the front. Here's a diagram. Some models have a two piece and some a one piece guide. Part 4 on this diagram is one. It's called a seal here.

If the sound comes from the rear, there is a nylon bearing and metal socket at the rear center of the drum.

Water under stackable washer dryer


The front panel comes off and you will be able to trace the water source. These combo units spin immediatly and if the drain is slow the water will spin up over the edge of the tub during drain.

Wont spin cycle at full speed


Burning smell is a slipping belt. These are tricky to get apart and diagnose but find the reason the belt is slipping and replacing it will solve your problem. Could be clutch, bearing or gearcase related.

The model that you provide is incomplete. However, if the washer loads from the top, they cannot be separated. If it loads from the front, they can.
