Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer
My problem is a horrible noise during a wash cycle. So far, no performance problems have started, but with this bad noise, I expect problems will soon start. Only during the agitation cycle, the washer sounds like an old jalopy, thumping, rattles, knocking; which does not seem to be directly related to the actual back and forth of the wash tub (doesn't seem to match the same rythum). The sound goes away during fill, or spin.
I am about a year away from replacing the whole unit, so naturally I'd like to repair this myself rather than paying for a service call. Any suggestions? Thanks!
Mine is doing the same thing. I opened it up to see what was happening and it was the drive belt tension arm bumping around. Soon, the belt started slipping during the spin cycle. Now it won't spin and the belt starts to smolder from the friction of the drive motor. If you haven't checked your belt, that's a good place to start.
