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.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

How to use stackable washer and dryer if unstacked


stacking was just a gimmick to save space
put the drier on a suitable stand , table or it is possible that there are holes in the back section for a mounting bracket to hang it on a wall

How do you unstack a Bosch Axxis WTA dryer from a Bosch Axxis WFL 2050 washer?


You do not state the type of stacking kit installed on your Bosch washer. The installation instructions of one of the stacking kits is found at the site Assemby Instructions Bosch Axxis Stacking Kit /WTZ11310.pdf . First remove the front concealment strip to expose the front of the mounting kit. Gently pry with a wooden tool to prevent damage. Once the it is exposed, there are two clip inserts in front of the dryer feet that must be removed. Once these are removed, you pull or slide the dryer forward to release them from the stacking kit and simply lift the dryer off of the stacking kit and the washer. The stacking kit itself is attached to the washing machine with four screws that must be removed to separate the kit from the washer top. And with that, your dryer and washer are separated!

But after separation there are two additional problems that may be bothersome to you. The first is that you now have mounting holes in the top of the washer that are exposed and the second is that the feet on your dryer may need to be replaced as parts of the feet may have been tossed during installation of the stacking kit and may need to be replaced.

The assembly instructions above show only the basic stacking kit. Some kits included a slide that pulls out to allow for a handy tray but the installation or disassembly is nearly the same.

My washer sounds like it's dying, but the dryer is fine. Can this be unstacked so all I have to do is buy a new washer?


Hi,

Welcome to FixYa.

To answer your question, as long as it is indeed a frontload washer with the dryer on top, yes they can be replaced individually.

The model number provided is only partial, therefore I can`t verify the unit is frontload or an Kenmore integrated "laundry center" built by frigidaire.

You can reply with a model number, but as I alluded to if it is frontload, no problem.

Good luck going forward. Thank`s for choosing FixYa. Let me know if you require further assistance.

Thanks I thought it might be the inlet valve, but to get access to it behind the top panel, Is there a trick to removing the panel? I have removed the three screws behind the detergent drawer but the panel...


Hi, you will need to unstack the dryer unfortunately, then remove the three screws at the back of the top washer panel and it will slide back about 2 or 3cm and up away from the unit. Then you will see how to remove the valve. Hope that answers your question. Thanks for visiting "fixya". Let me know if you require any further assistance and good luck. Macmarkus :)

See the Sears parts site for your washer:

If you look at the section / diagram of the cabinet, you should get an idea of how / where the brackets attach.

How to unstack a dryer


I have a Kenmore 417.69042990 stackable dryer and had a similar problem. To unstack it, in the front of the dryer there are two screws that are covered by round caps. They are easy to miss unless you look for them. Remove the caps, and the screws underneath it. Now, voila, you can lift the front of the dryer and pull as to unlock it from the two brackets in the rear of the dryer. Hope this helps... I took me and my husband over an hour to figure this out...

HOW TO UNSTACK A WASHER AND DRYER


Chainsaw, no seriously the dryer is bolted to the washer and not all of them can be unstacked. Remove the front panel of the dryer to expose the bolts holding it down. this only works if your washer is of the front loading type. if it is a top loader there should be some sort of frame the dryer is bolted to. after removing the dryer from a front load stack washer, the washer may or may not have a top panel on it
