Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
There is three things on this machine that concern me. Last week I rebuilt a series 80 and it did the same thing, mostly on perm press. It turned out the timer was fine and the mechanical had not been rebuilt in years. Because of this the motor could not spin fast enough to fling the water plus the pump was leaking. I need three things from you. Is leaking water and oil when looking under the machine, does the motor hum loud even when functioning normally and when its spinning lift the lid, is it still rotating after a quick count to 7? Drop me a line I would like to help.

Hello, Your problem is going to be with your lid switch, this is located normally either in the control panel or about half way down on the right side under the lid. This is a safety feature to stop you opening the lid while the machine is in a high spin. Once you have located the switch trace the wires back to the wire harness in the control panel. Disconnect the lid switch from the wire harness and with an ohms meter check for condinuity on pin 1 & 3 (the 2 outside pins not the middle this is a ground) You should find you have no condinuity and should replace this switch. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!! Mike

Well the pump is mounted on the motor and the motor is attached to the transmission. So the motor must be running to get the thing to pump or spin. I am thinking then you must have a problem with the lid switch. The switch has 3 wires. A green grounding wire which is attached to the case, and 2 other wires which carry live current. One thing you can do to SEE if that lid switch might be bad is to bypass it. Unplug the lid switch connection and jump between them 2 live wires. If she takes off a spinning then you know you need another one. You can leave it jumped but it might be dangerous to children.
