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.

Kenmore dryer 592-89047 won't start


Sounds like the lint may have fallen into the fan and has jammed it. The motor will hum if that happens. Its an easy job to clean just take your time taking the blower cover off and reverse the process replacing it.

Kenmore Gas Dryer Model Number 110.70882990. I must replace the Fabric Dryer switch but am not able to remove the two plastic trim caps and end caps that hold the console panel together. Please help.


Iwopink --
First you need to remove all the sheet metal screws on the console back panel. The plastic side trim cap pieces are clip-fit. Look carefully at the dis-assembly diagrams online.

It sounds like something has fallen down the dryer lint shoot. How do we remove the top to get to the issue?


I am guessing this is a kenmore/whirlpool dryer simply because of the problem. Yank out the filter,remove the screws on the top of filter housing. Use putty knife to pop top and then remove front. I have photos and manuals HERE

Running in a 30''vacuum


No. Sounds like you've got a plugged cap tube.

How careful were you when you silver soldered the new dryer onto the cap tube? It's real easy to get too much in there and plug the cap tube.

Kenmore HE2 Dryer Blades Loose


Yes. Depends on your model. The top, front and rear come off of some. Very easy fix. Your screws should be on the floor under the dryer.

Kenmore Fridge - Bad Testing Water


Your refrigerator definitely has a water filter. If you have gone 5 years without replacing the filter, you and your family have probably been drinking contaminated water, for some time. Water filters should be replaced every three to six months. On some refrigerators, and in cases of higher water consumption, the filter must be changed every 60 days. Sears sells replacement filter cartridges for Kenmore refrigerators.

The water filter on your refrigerator is located at the front base of the unit, in the grille, below the freezer door. There, you will see a round cap. Turn the cap counter-clockwise, until the handle is vertical.Then, pull it out of the grille. The filter cartridge is attached to the cap. After removing the cap and filter, slide the cap off from the existing filter cartridge. Slide the cap on to a new cartridge, and re-insert with the cap handle in a vertical position. Push it in, firmly. Then, turn the cap clockwise, until the cap handle is horizontal.

Kitchenaid dryer


Yank the filter out the top.
remove the 2 phillips screws in that filter housing on the top of the machine so you can pop the spring clips and get the top up. Remove the front and get the drum out. Oil the wheels and idler and rerout the belt using this PIC.
