Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer no longer heats up on my Kenmore 417.94812301 laundry stacked unit

My dryer no longer heats up, everything else is ok on the unit, it's only about 4 years old. I have been told it needs a thermostat and a heating element. The repair was quoted at 420.00! Can my husband fix it without too much trouble and what are the part numbers? Thanks!

On your dryer the common problems found is either you lost some of your electrical power (check your fuse box) or you need a new heater #131475300 about $100 for the part.

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

Our Kenmore Laundry Center makes a small squealing noise, and proceeds to get worse the longer the dryer goes on, it gets to the point where I can not even stay in the laundry room. Please Help

Your dryer has either a bad belt pulley or a bad roller. You will need to pull the drum out and look inside the cabinet. There are two rollers that the drum rides on and the pulley is close to one of them. It take the slack out of the belt. I would go ahead and change both the rollers and pulley seeing your at them because these stack units are not that easy to work on.

No heat in my stack-pak kenmore dryer. The element is ok and there are no broken cables/wires. 220 does come in to the unit and show up at the componets.

There is a thermal relay switch that is blown. Replace it.
Model number please and I will give you the part number.
