Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Cold water pours in during final spin

I have a Kenmore stacked washer/dryer combo model number 417.98702891 (not sure of the year). When I run it through the regular cycle with the water set to Hot/Cold, it works perfectly. When I run the same cycle on Cold/Cold, it doesn't. It will fill and drain fine, spins at full speed, and the water shuts off when it is full.

The problem is that the final part of the cycle, the spin, it will pour water out while spinning thus making the clothes wet when it is done (occasionally the tub will be partially full at the end of the cycle). If I switch the water from Cold/Cold to Hot/Cold during this final spin, the water will turn off and it will function normally. It does this for all cycle settings.

At first I suspected the timer was bad, but I now suspect it is the cold water inlet valve. However, if it is the cold water inlet valve, why would it work fine throughout the cycle except during the final spin?

No - the timer is the likely suspect.

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.

The washer on my double stack won't drain or spin.


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Without a complete model number, I'm guessing but usually, washers have a lid lock built in that prevents the washer from draining or spinning unless the lid is closed.

If the lid lock is defective, the washer probably won't go into spin mode.

Check yours for the lock, where it attaches and replace it. It's probably not too expensive.

Water runs during final spin cycle


You have a blockage in the drain pump. Remove the front panel to access the drain pump.
Bail the water from the tub.
Remove the hoses on the pump and clean out the lint or garment from the pump.

No rinse


Make sure that you have both, hot and cold water connected and turned on. Some models will not advance through rinse if one of the hot or cold is off. See if this solves the problem, Catriver.
