Re: fridgidare stackable washer and dryer

Why did it go in the shop anyways?Was it being painted?Ive never removed a dryer to repair it un less it was to be painted.What are you saying about red hot coil?If this is a 220Volt dryer than yes the coils get red hot,thats normal.The repairman is most likely responsible if it caught fire in any way!Sounds un believable to me.

Stackable washer/dryer

When your dryer drum isn’t turning anymore, it’s usually a broken belt. Tearing the dryer apart is usually straight-forward enough but stringing the new belt on the motor and idler pulley can be tricky. The Complete Encyclopedia of Dryer Belt Configurations shows the belt configurations for almost every dryer brand you can think of.

this will fix ur problem..

It appears your motor/motor controller has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to or and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...

FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.

If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.

Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

My stakable maytag washer leaves lint marks on the

new washer have what is called a washer drain protector, in other words it's a lint catcher for washers and your model has no such part. Do you use powder or liquid detergent? It seems to me that what you see is residue from too much detergent if you use powder. I've heard others with this complaint and to no avail can figure out the cause of this, at least from a view point of a simple wash.

Used kenmore stackable washer and dryer P/N 145781-000A

was the machine working when you bought it? if there's 240 available, then a problem is in the machine NOT your wiring. both motors, the dryer and wash motor may be 240 volts OR 120 volts - a hot leg to ground. the feeder should be a four wire because the white is the neutral and the ground an equipment ground. at the panelbox both the equip gnd and white terminate at the neutral bus.

Maytag LSG7806A stackable washer/dryer - dryer not working

Deb, as long as the ignitor is glowing, it's probably your coils on the valve. Look at number 13 and 14 on the attachment. Part number for the booster coil is 306106 and 306105 for the secondary coil. Not a hard job, the coils slide right off after removing a screw and then replace the harness. back.
