Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Washer will not stop!

We have a stacked kenmore washer/dryer, 110.1850292 from 2002. Actually we inherited it when we recently moved in.

It was fine for the first few loads, now all of a sudden it will not stop washing, it continues through all cycles (perm. press, knit, soak, etc). At the end of each cycle it fills up and then tries to spin full of water. It never fully drains, and continues this cycle as well, through the "off" section.

What can we do?

It sounds like you could have a couple of issues going on here. First of all, to answer the question about stacking the units; there is a mounting kit that you are supposed to use to place the dryer on top of the washer. The top is supposed to come off the washer to accomplish this. There are a couple of brackets to install and the dryer is supposed to mount to the washer with a couple of screws. Your local appliance store should be able to provide this for you. All you need is the model number of the washer and dryer. If the timer is only working on one cycle then you may have a bad timer. But...before we go jumping on that bandwagon...you mentioned that the washer is not filling and the water just keeps running out. This sounds like a problem known as "siphoning". If you have placed your drain hose in the standpipe in a manner that does not provide an air gap for drainage, the washer will not fill and will continue to "siphon" water from the machine as it tries to fill. If the washer cannot fill, the pressure switch will not shut off, and the timer will not advance any further. Double check your drain line to make sure you do not have it shoved too far down in the standpipe (3" to 4" should be sufficient). If the drain hose is sitting in the drain trap where the water sits, there's no air gap. Also, make sure you do not have the top of the standpipe sealed for any reason. Once again, you need an air gap in order for the water to drain properly. Let me know if this helps you.

SOURCE: Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

SOURCE: kenmore 80 series model 110 after wash clothes are left soaking

when empty and off, open the lid and see if you can rotate the inner wash basket by hand. if you can easily, then the clutch is worn. This will prevent the basket from going into a high spin and wringing the clothes out. Replace the clutch by removing the top control panel, removing the clips that hold the cabinet, pull cabinet off, remove drain pump clips and pump, remove motor clips and motor, remove transmission (3 bolts). Now you will have access to the clutch, replace as needed, reverse dissasembly to complete. remember to unplug.

I have a kenmore stacked washer/dryer. It's a top


Hello,

With the sympthoms your describing its sounds to me as if the timer is going to be the problem. IT could be a lid switch problem but since it does drain i can pretty much eliminate the lid switch,or even the motor and narrow it down to the timer.

Reply with the entire stack unit model number as found on a label inside of the DRYER door and i will give ya the part number for the washer timer.

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

No rinse


Make sure that you have both, hot and cold water connected and turned on. Some models will not advance through rinse if one of the hot or cold is off. See if this solves the problem, Catriver.
