Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer
Everything seems to be working until it goes into the spin cycle and it makes a loud chirping / squeaking sound.
I had that problem too. i noticed that is was not flat on the ground. You can also try putting oil on it.

If the dryer model number begins with 417, the drum is supported by a ball bearing in back, and a seal and glides up front. Often, the bearing will become very dry, either from years of use, or from excessive lint blowing up into the bearing. If the bearing isn't cracked or otherwise noticeably bad, you can usually solve the issue simply by lubing the bearing with a high temp grease. While the machine is apart...(a major pain in the butt), make sure to check the condition of the seal and glides on the front panel, and replace the belt if it looks at all cracked or frayed.
If this dryer is not a 417 and/or does not have a rear bearing, it's best to get a maintainance kit (belt, idler pulley and drum rollers) and install all the aforementioned parts, as they are the most likely source of screech. Also, check the motor by spinning the shaft manually with the belt off....if that is squeeking, it's motor

Make sure all springs are still in their place tilt the machine back and look under it and you can see them. 2nd all legs must be level as well as the floor.

We opened the top of the washing machine and there are some suspension springs.
All it needed was some lubrification. Prior to putting the top back on we put a load in
and watched it and there was no more noise.

Loks that your machine is pretty old and hence the belt has hardened making a squeaking noise.
Good fix is get a new drive belt.
Quick fix is you could put some oil on the drive belt..... it will work for now but not a permenant solution.
