Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer
We have a stacked kenmore washer/dryer, 110.1850292 from 2002. Actually we inherited it when we recently moved in.
It was fine for the first few loads, now all of a sudden it will not stop washing, it continues through all cycles (perm. press, knit, soak, etc). At the end of each cycle it fills up and then tries to spin full of water. It never fully drains, and continues this cycle as well, through the "off" section.
What can we do?
Call a service technician to get a proper diagnosis and quote then decide to fix or junk

It sounds like you could have a couple of issues going on here. First of all, to answer the question about stacking the units; there is a mounting kit that you are supposed to use to place the dryer on top of the washer. The top is supposed to come off the washer to accomplish this. There are a couple of brackets to install and the dryer is supposed to mount to the washer with a couple of screws. Your local appliance store should be able to provide this for you. All you need is the model number of the washer and dryer. If the timer is only working on one cycle then you may have a bad timer. But...before we go jumping on that bandwagon...you mentioned that the washer is not filling and the water just keeps running out. This sounds like a problem known as "siphoning". If you have placed your drain hose in the standpipe in a manner that does not provide an air gap for drainage, the washer will not fill and will continue to "siphon" water from the machine as it tries to fill. If the washer cannot fill, the pressure switch will not shut off, and the timer will not advance any further. Double check your drain line to make sure you do not have it shoved too far down in the standpipe (3" to 4" should be sufficient). If the drain hose is sitting in the drain trap where the water sits, there's no air gap. Also, make sure you do not have the top of the standpipe sealed for any reason. Once again, you need an air gap in order for the water to drain properly. Let me know if this helps you.

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.

when empty and off, open the lid and see if you can rotate the inner wash basket by hand. if you can easily, then the clutch is worn. This will prevent the basket from going into a high spin and wringing the clothes out. Replace the clutch by removing the top control panel, removing the clips that hold the cabinet, pull cabinet off, remove drain pump clips and pump, remove motor clips and motor, remove transmission (3 bolts). Now you will have access to the clutch, replace as needed, reverse dissasembly to complete. remember to unplug.
