Kenmore 98702 stacked washer/dryer won’t spin

The model number is 417.98702

I've been looking for a manual with the electrical diagrams, but can only find the installation and user manuals.

I found a post on another site that described a similar sort of problem and that turned out to be a bad timer. Not sure if that's a possibility or not. I guess I'm just not sure what sort of tests I can do other than just replacing each part, one at a time and hoping that works…

The first part sounds like some what like a control problem, probaly the pressure switch. The second part sounds like you have a motor issue. If you post the complete model, it will have more numbers involved, may know more about it.

I have a Kenmore 98702 stacked washer/dryer.

When I turn it on, it will fill, but, it agitates as it fills and it doesn't matter if the lid is open or not.

If I turn it to spin, it clicks, sucks power (I see the kitchen light dim) and then stops. If I click it off and on right away, it won't do anything, but, if I wait 20 seconds or so, it clicks, draws power and stops again.

Any idea what the problem could be?
