Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Washer noisy while spinning

We have a stackable unit, when the washer spins is it very noisy and both washer and dryer shake. They are located on the second floor, my husband says that it is not the floor that is the problem. We try stuffing things on the sides to minimize the noise.

You probably have a balance problem. You will have to get a service tech to replace the shock absorber/stabilizers (there are 3) in the unit.

Kenmore HE low water washer: The machine has become extremely noisy when spinning out. Sounds as if the bearings are going outing the lower section of the unit. Any advice?


its possible, but since I dont know the age of the washer, its hard to say.

I would open the door and reach in there and try and give it a good shake around and see if you can feel anything loose.

my mom has a HE low water washer and if its not loaded right, or got to many clothes or oddly weighed/shaped items in it, its noisy during spin out.

theres a possibly that the washer is not securely level anymore cause it to shake about on spin out. If this is the case, if you was staring at it while it was doing it you probably would notice it shaking about, just amazing what can happen when something spins at high speeds.. its why car motors are so finely precise in engineering, they spin so fast, any imperfection would cause a disaster.

Drum knock when spin cycle


Hello.
Noises are common when using a two-in-one washer and dryer, as clicking or whirring is part of the cleaning process during the transition to the next cleaning process. The GE Spacesaver washer and dryer combo uses a top-loading washer stacked beneath the front-loading dryer, and uses an agitator that makes noises throughout the spin cycle. Although whirring or clicking is normal, other noises or malfunction indicates a problem with the washer that requires minor troubleshooting. Professional repair is necessary if the washer continues to experience problems during the spin cycle, as there may be a problem with the washer's agitator.
1 Open the washer's door and check the balance of the load's clothes. Clothes that are unevenly distributed around the agitator cause excessive shaking and result in an imbalance during the spin cycle. Reduce the load's size by removing clothing if the washer's drum is overloaded.
2 Push "Start/Pause" to pause the spin cycle and turn the washer's cycle knob to the "Off" position. Turn the knob to "Spin Only" and press "Start/Pause" to reset the cycle.
3 Turn the wrench counterclockwise or clockwise around the unit's legs to adjust the appliance's balance. The legs are adjustable with the help of a wrench to ensure the unit does not shake while in use. An unleveled unit shakes as it spins, and causes excessive squealing or rattling as it attempts to dry the clothes.
4 Touch "Start/Pause" on the front of the washer's control panel and unplug the washer/dryer unit's power cord from the electric oultlet. Wait two minutes and plug the power cord back into the electric outlet. Push "Start/Pause" to resume the spin cycle.
Thanks.

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.

Excessive spin


I had this issue when I first purchased my stackable washer.. Because it was still under warranty, I had someone check it out. Apparently when it was installed they forgot to take out the security clamp that secures the unit during delivery.. duh!!
