Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer

Open Question

I have a 417.94872302 washer/dryer. The problem

I have a 417.94872302 washer/dryer. The problem is with water temperature, when it is set for Warm/Warm the water is warm on the first fill but when it refills for the rinse only the cold valve opens. I checked the temp switch and it functions as the wiring diagram shows and the valves both work during the normal fill so it is not them. Logically it is in the timer but it has been this way since it was new. Any ideas?

SOURCE: Water temperature problem

Chief Walley, you have a temperature control board that sits right behind the timer. A thermistor senses the water and sends the info to this board. The thermistor sits at the water injector. The board may be your problem, I have seen many like this. Keep in mind that the target temp for cold is 75 degrees. If your incomming water is higher than this, you are going to get a warm fill, which they think is cold. Without being there, I would go after the board. Catriver...post back.

SOURCE: no water enters on rinse cycle

I was partially wrong on my diagnosis. No cold water enters on either the wash or the rinse cycles. I also heard odd noises from the inlet valves. I realized the cold water valve was not opening. I've ordered the mixing valve and plan to replace it as soon as it comes in.

SOURCE: Water changes from hot to cold. Valves checked out

Bad thermistor or bad board. Or its just a energy super saver and it will not let you use all that hot water. Did it work before or its been like this since new? New energy star models will only let it just get warm for hot wash, saving energy. warm wash is like 70 deg water.

SOURCE: Kenmore 70 series washer won't fill during rinse cycle

It appears your timer/main controller has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com 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.

What is thebest tepmerature for white garments


Set your water temperature to "cold" on your clothes washer. Unless your clothes have oil or grease stains, cold water is usually adequate to clean white and colored clothes. In fact, washing clothes in cold water allows fabrics to retain their color and strength longer.

Washer temp setting changes by itself


I also have a Whirlpool washer/dryer for my condo, although I don't know the model number of mine. I had the same problem -- after it was precisely a year old, suddenly one day the hot and cold started coming out reversed. I was able to fix mine by more or less temporarily fiddling with the water pressure. What I did was one time, when the rinse cycle was running and the washer was filling up with hot water (grrrr...), I completely shut off the valve supplying hot water. So at that point the water stopped filling into the washer, and then I started tinkering with the cold water, twisting the valve off and on a few times. Then BINGO, suddenly the cold water "kicked in" and for the remainder of the rinse cycle, it filled the washer with cold water. I then turned the hot water valve back on, and since then it has been running correctly.

Do we need a Y connector for our combo washer dryer. We just have one tap in the kitchen sink


If you use a Y connector to provide water to the washer it will not be able to use different water temperatures. The water temperature at both the cold and hot inputs will be whatever comes out of the tap. The washer controls cold and hot inputs separately to change teh water temperature in the machine. A Y tap will only provide one temperature (whatever the tap is set to provide) to both inputs. If the tap is a faucet you could control the temperatures manually but the machine needs to have a water supply at both of its inputs.

Some whirlpool washers have had A similar problem. They had a intermittent water temperature switch issue. Sometimes they put hot water in when cold was selected. This is probably the same problem as yours. I would replace the water temp switch.
