Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer squeels like a banshee...

Happens all the time now, a few minutes after starting a load.

Wife is now screaming at me almost as loud... lol.

Took everything apart, cleaned everthing, tried to lubricate wheels, shafts, etc. but nothing helps.

What now, and how hard is it to do?

Thanks in advance.

    Thanks,



    Do I have to do this from the back of the unit? Or is there another way to get access to the drum removal? It appears that the drum rests on the back panel.

    you have to pull the front cover and the belt then lift up and out of the cradle frigidiare makes a special greese for this bearing but I've been using vasaline for years and no problems so far.But the drum has to come out to get to the bearing you can't miss it the ball is mounted on the drum and there is a plastic cradle on the frame you may want to polish the ball a little with a light steel wool

Repeat banging noise in dryer


Sounds as if the drum supports are bad. Replace the rollers that the drum glides on and should be good to go.

Dryer started out squeeling and now is making loud sounds?


This is very likely due to bad drum support rollers which is really not a difficult repair on these dryers.

How do i change the pully on my maytag sde2606 elec dryer


i wold first look to something in the drier drum glides not letting it turn easy enough in my opinion the pully its self is not your culpretits its doing its job real well or it wouldnt be squeeling something is stopping the drum from turning with the drier off check it by turning it by hand feel the resistance thats where the promblem is something jamming your drum
