Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Washer will not go through spin cycle

I have a Kennmore stacked washer and dryer model number 98012/90817. The machine goes through the wash cycle just fine but stops at the spin cyle. It agitates properly while in the wash cycle but does nothing in the spin cycle. I have tried putting the machine on different settings and moving the tub around but nothing I do seems to help. Is there anything I can do to fix the problem?

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I understand you have a problem with your stacked washer & dryer, thank you for providing the model number (of both) that is a good start... however I need to follow that up with a couple of questions.


Are these "new to you" machines or have you had them prior to this and just never stacked ?

Also had you run the washer before they where stacked and not noticed an vibrations violently/noise like a hammer spinning inside?

Finally, what method did you use to fasten the dryer to the top of the washer and did you remove the cabinet top of the washer before stacking...for the record it should not be removed as was the case with some other manufactured machines.

Let me know if you can add anything further along with the make & model. I will wait for your reply to move forward.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

The washer on my double stack won't drain or spin.


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Without a complete model number, I'm guessing but usually, washers have a lid lock built in that prevents the washer from draining or spinning unless the lid is closed.

If the lid lock is defective, the washer probably won't go into spin mode.

Check yours for the lock, where it attaches and replace it. It's probably not too expensive.
