Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer

How do you get the front cover off the dryer?

Help! Our stackable washer/dryer has a bad noise in the dryer. I'd like to check the rollers, but can't figure out how to get the front cover off after removing all the visible screws. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Try removing the back cover to gain access to the dryer motor and other bits. Feel around the drum and around the lip of the drum at the door opening. There could be a wire or chain stuck between the drum and the frame.

It sounds like the drive belt has SLIPPED out of the indented area (trough) of the indentation or it is loose, beginning to crack etc. OR one of the guide rollers has broken or gotten loose. Open it from the FRONT, taking off the metal cover. You will see the drum and the belt. Turn the drum by hand and inspect the belt, make sure it is in the metal trough, tight has no frayed, cracks in it. Check the guide rollers and the springs too.

Remove the 2 screws which hold the lower front washer panel , lift out from the bottom and remove the panel.You can now run the machine and use a flashlight to see where the leak maybe. Usually the top tub seal under the plastic tub cover will leak. The other possibility is the main tub bearing and seal on the main tub where the transmission goes up through tub. Hope this helps.

Dryer makes a loud noise then stops

If it stops running when hot it may be the motor. The belt or drum rollers would not stop it from running.
