Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer

Open Question

KENMORE 417.98702891 Won't always dry

I just bought this used, and he did not have a manual. Would you happen to have one? I had it set for 40 min, and switched the start button, but it would not start?The dryer started after clicking down, on it's own for some reason. Now, I tried to dry some more clothes and nothing is happening, it just makes a clicking sound, like a minet timer. Thank you for any help.

its sounds like you have a broken belt or a bad door swith open the door rotate the drum manually if it feels verry easy to turn that means your belt is broken if not you can check the wires then replace the door switck thanks from gilles

Make sure it has power. Then:Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.

Kenmore dryer 110.86864100 - Where is the moisture sensor?


Ain't no moisture sensor. This is is not an electronic sensing machine. It uses another method to determine dryness. An orange wire connects to the base of the heating element. The timer motor is driven by power from it in auto dry. The timer motor is VERY slow. Slower than most dryer timer motors.As the clothes get dryer the heat is not needed so the element is turned off by the control thermostat which is mounted next to the skinny white fuse on the blower housing. This allows for the turtle like motor on the timer to advance. Once the clothes get to the point of dryness the heater stays off way longer and the timer motor advances on over to the cool down and carry on over to the end of cycle. So the clothes won't always be dry due to factors like lint buildup in the blower housing, venting to outside and so forth. having said that my mom bought a brand new Kenmore dryer and I set it on 55 minutes timed drying. At the end of that them clothes is still damp. I then set it to auto dry high heat and that usually gets em dry. I think the main probo with this dryer is the thermostat ain't set as high as older models to keep the heat at a moderate temp so that the limits won't blow on models in apts and such. Just a theory.

My Kenmore H2t front load washer won't drain and


Hallo there
So it will not do what it is told. This happened to my Candy machine the other day. It was finished and I opened the door, out came water and I got 5 towels on the floor to dry up the water. Closed the door again and put empty water on, it emptied the water, stopped the machine and put spin on and it made it.
My experience ,learned the hard way, to wait long enough after the machine stops as well as between changing programs.
I this will be of some use to you.

Blinking light on Kenmore Pro 13873K dishwasher: won't run


May be the drain pump is jammed. Try to clean the area and after that try to reset the panel. Download the user manual and there must be the reset sequence.

Kenmore oven won't unlock self cleaning


This often happens if the cleaning option was used, what happens is that the Thermistor burns out, this will have to be replaced, this is best done by a professional. If you want to try to DIY, then first you must obtain a service manual, and use the troubleshooting and disassembly instructions within. The best way is to call in a professional and simply ask for a "Quote" as to prospective costings and take it from there?
