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.

I have a kenmore stackable washer/dryer. The dryer spins but does not heat. I looked at the owners manual and it states that one of the house fuses needs to be replaced. Where are the house fuses...

Hi jahusmc...

To find your house fuses/breakers look for a box that is mounted on a wall within the house.
It will have a metal door on the outside and will contain all the electrical circuts controlling the house.
Once you locate the main breaker box, look for a breaker in the box that looks "out of place" with all the other breakers, if you find one, recharge it by pulling/pushing on the toggle of the breaker to reset it. Once that is done you should have voltage again.
The easy way to see if you have voltage at the plug is to use a volt ohm meter, check the receptical for the correct voltage either 110-120 volts or 220 volts depending on what your dryer uses.

I just got a used kenmore model number 110 88752792 stackable washer and dryer. it had a 4 prong cord.I live in a travel trailer, it has a 24 inch wide space for a stackable washer and dryer that the 110...

You will need to get 230v to allow the dryer to work if your service panel has 230 you will need to get a 30 amp two pole breaker and run 3 wire #8 in size. Then get the socket and plug for the dryer. The 110 in the model number simply means made by whirlpool and is a pretty good machine but requires 230 volts to dry with heat.

Dryer shorts out some of the electrics when its switched on!

The breaker in your breaker box is either weak and need to be replaced or the amps is too low. But from what you stated, you have had this dryer for awhile, so I'm assuming that its just a bad breaker. If the dryer still runs and doesn't have any issues when it dosn't pop the breaker, then this is what it is. Have an electrician come out and replace the breaker if you are not familiar with doing this.

Kenmore stackable washer dryer. Dryer buzzer is

Just solved this problem for a Kenmore stackable washer dyer! Sorry I don't have the model number. I have a baby on the way and a small house. I was pretty sure I would get no sleep between the baby crying and the baby crying because of that darn buzzer!

The buzzer is attached to the timer with a quick connect post. Access the controls by unscrewing the large panel above the washer door. You will need a square screwdriver or a very small flathead and some vice grips to get it started. The panel will fall forward onto the washer. In mine there was a pouch with an electrical diagram of the unit. To release the controls, two more screws must be removed from the sides of the small panel housing the controls. Once again you need a square screwdriver or a very small flathead and some vice grips to get it started. Once these are out you should be able to lift the control panel up and it will fall forward. Get a small box or stand to put on the washer. This will support the panel as the wires are not that long. On the left side of the timer controls you will see a quick connect post marked with an "H". Disconnect this wire and your problems are solved. Beautiful silence! I put electrical tape on the quick connect wire. Not sure if I needed to as I'm not an electrician. Hope this helps.

We have a kenmore dryer model 11082182200 (stackable) breaker blows when plugged in. Not sure where to start looking for the problem.

If the breaker is turning off when plugged in the dryer has a direct short somewhere. It could be anywhere inside the dryer and the dryer will need to be disassembled to find the electrical short. Leave the dryer unplugged and get a test meter to help locate the problem. I will be here if you need, just let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Asko stackable dryer/Bosch stackable washer compatability

If you arer going to replace the washer with a Bosch Axxis model, it will simply plug into the back of the dryer (if it is electric) because normally the dryers are 220 VAC. Works A-OK.

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!
