Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer
is a clear evidence of a broken motor coupler. It is the one that
connects the drive motor shaft and transfer its
mechanical energy to the transmission assembly . The mechanical energy is not transferred
to the transmission
and therefore result in the agitator not to agitate and the drum not to
spin. The sound of doing it means the motor is running. The drain pump works because it is directly coupled to the rear
spline of the motor making the pump turn whenever the motor runs. During the agitation cycle, the motor runs in such a way that the pump works in forcing the water in while in the drain/spin cycle, the motor runs in the opposite direction and the pump forces the water out to the drain hose. Replace the motor coupler to address the problem. Disconnect power before attempting any repair work.
