Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Clothes getting caught on inside of dryer

While drying the last few loads of clothes in my Kenmore Stacked Washer/Dryer Combo, a piece of clothing has gotten caught in a gap between the dryer tub and the inside frame of the dryer. It is wearing (burning?) a hole in the clothing.

Could this cause a fire?

The tub will move up and down,

Should it have this much play?

How do you fix this?

There are a couple of guide wheels in the back of the dryer. when they get worn out the tub will have excessive play and will trap clothes inside. Just remove the front cover loosen the belt and remove the drum. the worn wheels will be easy to spot. It is an easy and cheap fix.

Model 41798702891 Kenmore stacked washer/dryer is collecting lint inside the door and putting lint onto the clothes.

I am not much of an expert with dryers but i'll give it a stab. Should there be a filter that catches the lint so that it does not go all over the clothes? Have you got the manual. If not, see if you can find the manual online and see if there is anything mentioned about a lint filter.

It takes a long time to dry a load of clothes

sounds as if you may have an issue with a blocked/clogged ventin, perhaps wher it leaves the home, a unit that is not able to expell the heat will tend to not dry the clothes properly, 2-3x to dry a good sign of venting issue

Burnt lines

Your problem is a bad rear drum seal-if these become worn, torn, or missing close can get caught torn or discolored in the space between the clothes drum and rear of the dryer. Replace the rear drum seal.

Dryer putting black smears on clothes

The white plastic pieces just inside the font of the drum are the front bearings there are aboutfour of these, you will need to take the front of the machine to put them in, your clothes are probably picking up black smeres from where the plastis bearings have worn.
