When you have smoke coming from a dryer, the most likely cause is lint on the element. Clean the element, clean the lint trap filter, (AFTER EACH AND EVERY LOAD), and make sure your vent is clear, free from lint and moisture.

My Kemore stackable dryer does not work properly. I have to run the dryer 3 or 4 times to dry a load. Does feel hot at times when I open the dryer and feel the clothes.


Perhaps you have an air restriction of some sort. Cleaning the dryer and checking the vent can greatly increase efficiency. I recently replaced the glides and belt on one of these and made some repair photos. The dryer was plum full of lint all over the controls and everywhere. I took a shop vac to it before I snapped the pictures later that day. I have included a manual also HERE.

Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer keeps stopping, and a smell of smoke.


More than likely there is something locking up your motor. Either the transmission or the drain pump, both are connected to the motor. The easiest way is to disconnect the components from the motor to determine which one is causing the problem. Most of the time it is from the something being lodged in the pump, a sock, screw, wire, etc. To get to the pump you need to tip the washer back far enough to get underneath the washer.

Stacked Maytag Neptune - Accessing Inertial imb/Upper tub disp Switches


The switches you are referring to are set-reset. These rarely have a fault. Normally the machine control board is the faulty component. How did you determine that these switches are faulty ?

The safest way to access the upper portion of the washer is to remove the dryer. Another method is to remove the "complete" washer front and the control panel. This will give you access to the top of the washer tub.
