Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Model 417.94802301 stackable with electrical haywire?

My stackable washer-dryer recently quit. The breaker in house electrical box had shorted out and was replaced. NOW dryer comes on but does not heat. Washer will not come on unless dryer is on and then after tub fills with water it does not progress to agitating. If dryer is turned off while washer is filling, washer stops. I currently have a tub full of water and clothes and Sears can't come out untill February 18th. Help! Can I tackle this myself and, if not, what might I expect from Sears when they do come out in addition to the $64 house call charge? Thanks.

You got a problem with your power supply for sure. check and make sure both your breakers are on inside the fuse box. turn them completely off and them back on(there should be 2 linked together for this unit. if that ok try to gt behind the unit and check the incoming power source(make sure wiring on rear of dryer is in tact. def sounds like inadequate power supplied to unit

I have a frigidaire stackable washer/dryer model number FEX831CS0 an the washer works but the dryer is seem not to be getting any power


Hello cbrhonda125 - Try resetting the unit dryer by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes. Restart unit and if it proves to be ineffective, there are multiple possible causes; faulty power cord, house wiring, defective control board, thermal limiter or door switch. This is something that a professional would need to properly diagnose.

Dryer portion on my stackable does not heat up.


Hello there:
please try these solutions and keep me informed on how this is going for you ok
Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected. Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.) Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

My maytag neptune has no power any suggestions


Check for ~220 volts AC across the two slanted contacts on the dryer power socket. If nothing, check the house electrical panel for tripped dryer circuit breakers(pair)--push the breakers OFF, then ON to reset. Recheck for 220 volts at dryer socket--if ok now, try the dryer. You need to use a voltmeter for this checking. If it starts, then quits, you likely have an internal short (heating element) inside the dryer case that trips the circuit breakers.

Washer won't turn on


Begin by checking to be sure the outlet where you have the washer plugged in has power. you may have blown a fuse or popped a circuit breaker. If no power, either replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker by turning it all the way off and then all the way on.

Neither my washer or dryer has any power on our electric stackabl


IT IS GOOD THAT YOU STARTED WITH THE HOUSE ELECTRICAL. I WOULD NOW CHECK THE POWER AT THE RECEPTACLE AND THEN TAKE THE COVER OFF THE BACK OF THE MACHINE WHERE THE CORD CONNECTS TO SEE IF MAYBE A WIRE IS BURNT OFF. I HAVE SEEN THIS TOO MANY TIMES TO PASS CHECKING THIS.

Water won't work but dryer does


Mine did the same thing and it ended up being an overloaded older breaker in the electric box. It would allow the dryer to work, but the washer was too much for it to operate. Had the breaker replaced with a new one and it works fine. Hope this helps!
