Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer

Open Question

My Sears Kenmore Dryer has stopped spinning!

I have a model 417.91702000 Serial number xe14002479
For a while it was making a squeaking / Grinding noise. So I was going to grease the bearings now it has stopped all together. I opened it up and the belt that is around the drum is still in tack. Is it the motor? I am a stay at home mom and I have been fixing other things around the house. I am trying to save money by fixing it myself. I feel I am pretty handy I fixed my Fridge and dishwasher by myself. So any info would help greatly. Thanks

sounds like the bearings need replaced, when replacing bearings you need to replace all of them to ensure proper function and life longevity.

I had the same problem and it went on few months. Then the final spin didn't work and I could smell something buring. Called AHS and they sent a tech, who said it was the bearing. Cost about $350. to fix. Will be replacing the washer soon, I don't think we paid too much more than this at the scratch and dent place.

You must replace the direct drive coupling between the motor and transmission. About $30.00

Need to know year of model # 66814690 sears kenmore dryer


The date of manufacture is determined by the SERIAL NUMBER. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r2880489-determining_age_whirlpool_appliance

Kenmore dryers are manufactured by Whirlpool. The "110" prefix on your model number identifies the manufacturer. If you still require assistance, post back with your complete serial number and I can explain how to determine the date for you.

I hope this helps you.

You most likely have a broken coupler between the motor and gearcase.
You can buy the part for about $10 or have someone come out and replace it for about $150-200.
If you will post the complete model number from the the washer so I can see which style cabinet you have, I will try to walk you through the repair. It isn't very complicated if you are handy with home repairs.
With the age of the machine it probably just needs a coupler, but it could also have a problem in the transmission or basket drive that has caused the failure.
