Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer

2 Answers

Screws fall off panel inside dryer

This has happened twice to me since 2005 purchase of Kenmore's stackable washer/dryer Model #41794702300. My first clue is an unusual noise followed by the sound of the first loosened screw spinning around with the dryer load. Eventually screws #2 and #3 follow and the dryer stops. The screws are very short and don't appear they could be holding anything in place (if that's their purpose).Why does this keep happening?

Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

Not sure why this keeps on happening, but I would suggest putting a tiny bit of LocTite on the screws and then replacing them. It really only takes a drop. Give them at least half a day to a day to cure. LocTite WILL STAIN anything it gets on, so be sure to let the stuff dry.
Hope this helps!

Take one of the screws down to your local hardware and buy new ones and lock washers (with teeth on the inside so clothes won't catch on them).
Good Luck

We have the kenmore stackable washer and dryer the water won't drain my husband thinks something is stuck in the pump Any ideas?


On the bottom front of the washer there are 2 screws.
Remove these screws and insert a screwdriver in the space where the front panel meets the washer top and push down on the screwwdriver. The locking tabs will come down with the front panel.
Pull the panel off and set it aside.
When you are through with the repair, tilt the machine back slightly and insert the panel tabs in the groove, place a screwdriver handle or something of similar thickness under the washer and front panel. Let it down on this and it will hold the panel up so that you can get the screws back in.

Stackable kenmore model 41794702300


We have had that happen too. You will need to take out what ever has blocked the valve on the drain. Ours was a bobby pin! My model is a bit different but if you follow the drain hose underneath you can find it. Remember you are dealing with lots of water. I think I scooped out the water first and have some towels ready. Or hire somebody to do it for you. I hope that helps.
