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

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.

Typically stacked washers and dry are attached with a bracket in the back of the machine. Pull your machine out and you should see the brackets. Undo the screws and the dryer should lift off the washer.

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.

The gasket is torn


Hello. The seal swap isn't too difficult. You may have to unstack. If the washer is on the bottom, you may be able to scoot the dryer back enough to make the repair, but the washer case is like a cabinet; each part depends on the other parts for rigidity. For this reason alone, it would be much safer without several hundred pounds above your head. I'd unstack. That said: You can certainly diy. Unplug the washer. With the door open, look at the bottom of the seal. You'll see a ring clamp. Loosen the screw and remove the clamp. Peel the seal inward. It is easier to complete the seal swap with the front off. Remove the door and set aside. Locate the screws for the front of the machine and remove them, gaining access to the seal. Youcan either set the door to the side with the door lock wires still attached, or unclip them, which is easier. With the seal folded inward, you will likely find another clamp at the bottom. Loosen this as well. Remove the seal and replace with the new one, making sure to orient it like the old one was, and fold it to the inside like you had the old one for removal. Replace the front panel. Complete the seal installation, being careful to make sure that the clamp removed earlier gets put back in the groove and seats well. Reinstall the door. Best Regards, --W/D--
