Question about Kenmore 88732 Top Load Stacked Washer / Dryer

Open Question

Kenmore laundry center

I just received a new Kenmore Laundry Center and found that the dryer does not seem to have power. None of the lights come on. Could there be a fuse inside the machine that can be blown? I only see one power source and the washer is fine. Any suggestions?

    Me too -- the dryer (mostly) gets barely warm and clothes take hours to dry. But _sometimes_ it actually gets hot.

    Yes, Having the same problem had the belt replaced and vacumed the lint. I don't have any idea, could it be the motor giving out?

    Interesting. Mine was delivered DOA. The installer saw the dryer light on and let the washer fill for seconds and said all was well. He Lied! Dryer will not heat on any setting. Washer will not operate on any setting. If dryer is set on a heat cycle, the washer will fill and drain at the same time and then lock lid. No agitation or spin on any cycle. If dryer is set on "air fluff" the washer won't even fill. Called Sears immediately. Tech supposed to be here in 4 days.

    The Sears guy is here now. He has literally taken the unit apart to the frame. Says it's a wiring issue but can't find it. Another site has suggested it may be wash timer issue. Sears guy has just given up. They will have to send new unit.

How do I replace the dryer belt?

Hello Philip, I appreciate your inquiry!

Based off the information you have provided you need help with replacing the belt on your Frigidaire laundry center. In order to access the pulley you would need to disassemble the laundry center. I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional technician for proper disassembly of your laundry center. Incorrect disassembly could cause personal harm or future issues within the laundry center. Best of luck! -Matt

How to reseat the dryer on a fgx831cs dryer

Hi Amy, this is AP!

I understand you want to reset your Frigidaire gas laundry center, model FGX831CS. For this particular model laundry center I would recommend turning the breaker to the appliance off for 5-6 minutes, and then turn the breaker back on. This action will reset the laundry center completely for you. If you can provide additional information describing the malfunction or symptoms you are experiencing with your laundry center I may be able to provide more useful troubleshooting or an explanation.
