Kenmore Washer/Dryer Stack -- Need to replace Washer

I have a 9 year old Kenmore Washer and Dryer stack (dryer on top; washer on bottom). The model numbers are 417-800-42990 (dryer) and 417-400-42990 (washer). The washer broke and I need to replace it. I went to Sears and they have TWICE sold me a washer that, upon delivery, the delivery folks refuse to install because they say it's the wrong kind. Help! Does anyone know what kind of washer a Kenmore 417 dryer can be stacked on top of?

It's hard to tell how they are connected, but apparently the top of the washer is removed and the dryer is bolted on top of it.

    Thank you! I just purchased on-line a Kenmore #40412 that looks EXACTLY like my current (broken) model. It also has a removable top that can be clipped in the back and screwed in the front to the stacked dryer. Keeping my fingers crossed that all goes well on delivery day.

    Thanks again -- glad to have my faith restored in at least some Sears Technicians.

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

Can I stack a new whirlpool washer model # WFW72HEDW with an old whirlpool dryer model # WED9270XW1? If yes, what stacking kit do I need to use?


You can stack just about any dryer on any washer, so long that the controls of the washer are on the the top of the washer has no penetrations and no control.In general, dryers are independent from the washer and are light weight.
So the conclusion: so long that the dryer does not interfere with operating the washer - YOU ARE A OK :-)

Remove front panel on kenmore washer dryer stack model110.26182


Model# 110.88752799 Kenmore stacker washer/dryer

Q; How do I remove the front control panel? (to remove the timer dial, to replace a switch, etc)

A: reference diagram- http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/partsdirect/printSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http%3a%2f%2fc.searspartsdirect.com%2flis_png%2fPLDM%2fK1105180-00001.png

-remove four crews (#8 on diagram) from left and right sides.
-remove one screw (at #21 on diagram) from the bottom of the panel.
-remove #7 panel from the left and right side
- this will expose a thin metal catch (#9) on each side. With a small finger or screw driver, push down on the top of this metal strip where it bends horizontally. This will compress the spring (#14) and release the catch.
- the control panel will fold down now.

The washer on my double stack won't drain or spin.


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Without a complete model number, I'm guessing but usually, washers have a lid lock built in that prevents the washer from draining or spinning unless the lid is closed.

If the lid lock is defective, the washer probably won't go into spin mode.

Check yours for the lock, where it attaches and replace it. It's probably not too expensive.

a stack unit is a very risky investment, altho it's understandable if you have limited space. if the hold downs on the washer are rusted out or broken thru you need to have someone weld them for you. That's how we used to do it where I worked but stacks are not usually easily worked on. I'm afraid you will probably have to get an entirely new unit or maybe a used one from a reputable used appl. dealer in your area. Check around, you might get lucky and find one relatively inexpensive
