Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer
I have read to use vasaline to lubricate the rear bearing and socket. Before I attempt it, I dont have any service manual for my machine and was wondering the best way to access the bearing at the rear of the dryer drum. With the stackable is accessed from the rear of the machine or some other way.
Use only a high temperature lithium grease,Vaseline will liquefy and drip out. This is not an easy task.. The top cover, control panel, front panel and drum will have to be removed to access the bearing. Two people are HIGHLY recommended for this task. If this has been going on for awhile, suggest purchasing new bearing before taking apart. (bearing is plastic and wears down when grease dries out)

Look at back of dryer and see if an inner panel is removeable. If yes, I would try that. And instead of vasoline, get some lubricant like grease at a hardware store, as long as you are going through the trouble, you might as well get some good lubricant. Vasoline can smell a little when it gets old and good lubricant should hold up better. Good luck!
