Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

My 27inch Kenmore washer model # 97812 got overloaded in a load, shut down for the 30 minute cool down and ever since then when I turn it on to start a load the agitator starts going while it is filling with water. It does the same when it is time in the cycle to rinse so things are getting caught under the agitator and making it stick and overload. It never did that before. I unplugged it with the hope it would reset it and after 1 hour unplugged it didn't fix it. Help!

Check your pressure switch ...or even the pressure hose is probably clogged...Reason for agitation issues.

check the pump filter and if necessary clean it up.
if you stop the programme and hold the start/ pause button for 3-5 sec the programme will cancelled and the drain will work.
if you hear a slow noise from the pump it may be blocked with external objects from your clouthes pocket,

so you need to contact a repairman.

SOURCE: shutting down on rinse cycle

Hi this could means that you may need to replace the washing machine bearings. Once the bearings are bad, the motor overheats and it will automatically shut down after the first rinse.

SOURCE: Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle

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.
Good luck!

Kenmore elite stackable starts and after 30 seconds stops then after 2 minutes starts again with a huming sound


Your talking about the dryer right? If so, the blower is not working. Unit has "high temp" safeties built in to shut dryer off if overstepped. No blower to force air over heated coils, causes high temp causing unit to cease working until cooled down then it will start and stop again after another 30 sec.

Top loading Kenmore washer runs for a few seconds then shuts off


It's quite possible, however,

If you're mechanically inclined, I'd check the motor, transmission and pump first.

See the following Whirlpool / Kenmore Service manual for top load, direct drive washers and it's trouble-shooting section.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

See the following for how to pull the cabinet, pump, motor and transmission to check them all.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO PULL THE TUB.

Kenmore 800 dryer shuts down after running down to 40 minutes on the timer. When I restart it at that point it runs for about 30 seconds and shuts down. If I turn the timer back to 90 minutes it runs down...


Sounds like you may have a bad motor. If the motor is overheating it will shut down on its overload.

If its a shorted contact in the timer you could mark the spot where it stops and restart it again. It should stop exactly at that point.

KENMORE DRYER HEATING PROBLEM


You need a new Motor. The thermal overload on the motor shuts it down,until motor cools down.

Kenmore Dryer works for about 20 MINUTES, not seconds


SD, doesn't sound like the same problem. Yours sounds more the like motor kicking out on overload and when it cools down you are able to start it again. The thermal fuse and high limit TCO are non resettable so you can rule them out. You are going to have to check some things out. Make sure the rollers and pulley are not binding. The blower wheel is not binding. These things will cause a drag on the drum and put a heavy load on the motor. Catriver...post back
