Kenmore Stackable Washer/Dryer

Started a load of clothes, water filled up then stopped working. Smells like something is burning. Is this a easy fix. It's 9 month old and this is the 2nd time it died. Took Sears 3 weeks to get it fixed. Dont ever buy this one. My first one caught fire.

Washer on stackable unit won't start after it initially started..

Check the out of ballance switch. It' located between the tub and the cabenit. It sounds like it might have gotten broken when you moved it. You can bypass it by connecting the two wires together until you can replace it.

When washer fills it does not stop unless done manually

HI, i recommend testing the timer/control device for faults. make sure it is spinning and not shorted. if the timer/control device is in good condition, this will confirm a serious fault in the water valve assembly(inlet). replace this device in this case.

My Stackable washer/dryer is not operating right

Two things:

1) I would first check your water pump, if something gets in it or the water pump bearing is bad, it makes this kind of a sound.

2) If you can spin the washer drum by hand in either direction, the transmission is bad.

Good Luck!

well i am having about the same problem, but mine won't even fill, the dryer works but the washer won't fill or turn on at all. my husband had it all apart, too the control assembly to parts place and they said that hardly ever goes bad so it is still sitting unusable with no answer or money to spend on it in site.

Have model 88675 with slow hot water fill

I once had this problem. The solution was to remove the hot water hose connection to the washer and look at the filter/screen inserted into the end of the hose connection on the washer machine. This screen protects the washer components from foreign particles entering. You may find a badly-clogged screen, so clean it. I have seen a cold water screen clean, while the hot water screen was clogged...something to do with hot water and minerals or iron in water.
