How to seperate a Kenmore dryer from the washer under it?

I am trying to remove my Kenmore 417 90142000 dryer from the washer so that I can replace the washer.  They are seperate but stackable units. There is a connecting kit of some sort holding them together and I can't figure out how it works.  It looks as if the dryer has been secured by placing it over some metel tabs that are screwed to the washer, but I can't pry the dryer up and off.  I saw a picture of Dryer Stacking Kit #638304 and it looks similar, from what little I can see. I have to get the dryer off by Tuesday, October 16!  That's when the new dryer comes, and the sales person told me that the installers will not lift the dryer off.  Thanks for any info.

This is probably a model that has two access holes at the bottom front of the dryer -about 4-5" from each side- usually closed off with plastic discs. Just an inch up from the washing machine.  Pry out the plastic discs with a flat screwdriver and you should see a screw inside each of the two openings.  Remove the screws and you will be able to tip the dryer up and slide it back a few inches to detatch from the back.

Use two people to lift the dryer down as it is bulky but not too heavy.

Could you please post the model number of the unit? It will be under the washer lid, in the dryer door, on the top, or the side of your unit.

Kenmore 80 Series Gas Dryer wont turn back on after blowing fuse


Good day,
First, reverse the washer and dryer plugs in the outlet.
If that works, then the outlet needs changed.
If not,
The light switch is hot wired to the light circuit. Which means, if the machine is plugged in, the light will work.
Two possibilities.
1.The cord is bad, and needs replaced.
2. The light switch, which also runs the circuit to the motor is bad.
To access the switch, remove the lint filter, remove the 2 screws under it, then with a screw driver, pry up the top lid, one side at a time.
Lift the lid, but do not go above vertical. You will see the switch, and how to remove it.
You will need a VOM meter to test these items.
As well, make sure the machine is unplugged.

The following clip, at the beginning will get you started if you have to access the switch.

Need to disassemble a kenmore elite oasis dryer


#
1

Disconnect your Kenmore Oasis washing machine from its power source. Make sure that your washer is unplugged before beginning to disassemble it.
#
2

Remove the screws that hold the control console to the top of your Oasis washer. In some Kenmore Oasis models, the two screws may be covered by plastic end caps. After removing the screws, set them aside until you are ready to replace them.
#
3

Flip the console up, back and out of the way.
4

Locate the cabinet clips on the top of your Kenmore Oasis washer. These clips are located toward the back of the washer top and would be hidden by the console if it were not currently flipped up.
#
5

Slide your screwdriver underneath the metal cabinet clips. Wiggle the screwdriver back and forth to gently pry the cabinet clips free.
#
6

Disconnect the group of colored wires that plug into the top of the washer from the control console. These wires control the lid switch on your Kenmore washing machine. To disconnect, grasp the white plastic clip and pull gently.
#
7

Remove the washing machine cabinet. Tilt the cabinet towards you, and then lift the entire cabinet up and off of its platform.

Replacing the agitator dogs in a Kenmore 80 series washer


Hi, Remove the cap on the agitator and then remove the inside cover. There is a 7/16" bolt under the inside cover. Remove the bolt and the agitator will lift out. Seperate the 2 pieces of the agitator and replace the dogs. You might have to use a flat blade screw drive and punch out the 4 tabs around the bolt hole in the agitator if this applies.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Kenmore Washer/Dryer Stack -- Need to replace Washer


first of all. comming from a Sears Technician.. (don't yell) -- the delivery drivers only know about delivering stuff. they dont know too much,
if the two are the same size they can be stacked.
sometimes have to rig something up
and yes, for that model the top is removed, clips go on the rear and screwed at the front.
in some areas it is sold seperatly as a stacking kit
