Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore Automatic washer 110.28912791

The switch (activated by the door) I was able to get to the switch - but very hard to get to the gorunding wire. Does it need to be gorunded badly (probably does)? Is there an eaier way to get to it than just reaching with all my might? Does the back panel come off in less than a week?

The switch is called the "Lid Switch". The following link explains how to replace one:

It is difficult to reach the ground wire without removing the cabinet (as you described). It is actually fairly simple to remove the cabinet if you follow the instructions in the link I provided. To answer your question, "Yes", the switch should be properly grounded.

I hope this helps you. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

Kenmore front load washer goes through wash and rince cycles but will not spin


These are symptoms of a broken door lock and switch assembly and the only viable solution is replacing the said assembly if no issue is found with the wire harness connections. The machine will not advance to the spin cycle unless the door lock spin switch is activated. This is a safety feature to prevent the door from opening and avoid injuries during the high-speed cycle. Replace the door lock and switch assembly and it should solve the problem. Click on the link below for the detailed instruictions on how to replace the door lock and switch assembly. The part number for the door lock and switch assembly of your machine may be different but the instructions still apply.

Washer filled then stopped. Adjusting control knob


Sounds like door switch has failed. You can check this by jumping out the door switch

Spin cycle doesn't spin out


there is a switch which detects the lid being closed. if this switch is bad the spin cycle will not engage. also, there is a little actuator which enables this switch thru a hole in the top and if has gotten broken off will also cause this problem. look for a little door at lid level and staying clear of the washer push a small rod into this hole. if spin starts the actuator is gone, if not the level switch is bad. make sure the function switch is in the spin position and activated.

Kenmore washer 44722 water pumps out no spin. Brake actuator activates ,but motor does not turn on to make tub cylinder spin. Is this a Pump short or maybe control panel problem. Thanks,Ed


Ed,

I had a situation such as this with our washer, in the end I had found that the safety switch had failed open. You'll note on the washer door the small pin thats drops down from it which closes the safety switch when the door is closed (if the pin broke off this would do it too) In my case the switch had failed and would not allow the washer to engage into a spin mode. (first unplug the washer) You can check this switch by removing the wires from the switch and using an ohm meter check the switch for continuitty when closed; I expect you'll need to remove the top of the washer to access this switch. It would be possible to connect the wires together going to this switch bye-passing the switch; if it runs you know the switch had failed. AS this is a safety device do not continue use of the washer untill the switch is replaced.

Good luck,
Tom

Power to the outlet, but apparently no power at the touch pad - it is non responsive with no indicator lights on.


1. No power to the washer
Make sure there's power getting to the washer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the washer, if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

2. Lid switch
The washing machine may not function if the lid switch is defective. The switch is usually located near the door. Replace if found defective.

If all the above checks out OK, replace the touch pad.

F-26 error message


F-26, is a door lock switch error code. Some things to try; Unplug the washer for 1 minute and see if the error clears. If not, try entering the diag mode by pressing any key except pause/ cancel. Press for 4 seconds and release for 4 seconds 4 times. If entered correctly, all lights should light and the first error should appear. Press the same key to advance through all the errors. When the errors finish. It will start an automatic test mode that tests all componets. The first thing it will test is the door lock. If this fails you more than likley have a door switch problem. Let me know how you make out. Catriver

Washer won't start; has alternating "dl" and "f" errors....can't reset


This is a Door Lock Error. The service manual lists the following causes: Door Lock Mechanism is broken or removed from door. Door Switch Unit Lock Failure-Unplug washer and check door switch, wiring connections, and the connection to the CCU (Central Control Unit (You have to remove the lid of the washer for this). To get at the switch, you have to remove the lower front panel. These are torx, I believe 3 screws. By turning yourself on your head, you can visually inspect the lock, and manually lock/unlock to check for bind (pulling/pushing a black plastic handle about two inches long with a teardrop shaped handle on the end.
