    Yes. The model number is 417.98702891. The serial number is XE01402015

    Thanks! The tub moves far enough to the left side that I can replace the water valve without removing the tub. I appreciate the advice!

I have a stacked Frigidaire FEZ831CA washer/dryer combo and when running the dryer it makes a very high pitched (AND LOUD) screeching sound. Any ideas as to what might be the problem? Thanks, Sean

screeching sound
Sean, Bad felt gasket body to drum, if belt drive on dryer, it could be worn and slipping, making a screech, or if not the belt, the drum may have a worn bearing on its hub allowing it to run crooked and rub where it should not.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

My stackable washer/dryer laundry center no longer allows adequate flow of hot water. It was fine one load, and hasn't worked since. Now it just trickles hot water into the washer. Any ideas?

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

If you have checked that the hot water tap is turned on fully and the hose is not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking the hot water inlet filter. Turn the tap off and remove the hot water hose at the washer end. Inside the inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace it and the hose. If after turning the tap back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot water control valve. Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call ;-0(
Good luck,
John C

Could be the bearing. The water seal may be damaged, allowing water to get to the bearing. You should have the seal and bearing replaced.
