Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Goes out of round-agitator?

While taking my 1993 Kenmore 70 series washing machine apart to find and determine if the motor coupler needs replacing (it does!), I noticed a round rubber piece at the base of the agitator that seems to no longer be in place. For the last 4 years the washing machine has gone out of balance quite often.  Could this be the problem?  If so, how do I access this rubber piece from where I am now (the motor and water pump are off) to replace it? Do you know the proper name for this piece (I'm not sure if the old one will still work)?

Kenmore 70 series will not spin agitate, or drian.

the coupler between the motor and the transmission has sheared apart. The replacement part is fairly inexpensive at any Sears repair facility

My kenmore 70 series does all but spin what is wrong?

It could be the motor coupler or a motor. Make sue it agitates. If it does I would say it's a coupler. If not it will be your motor.

Kenmore 70 series washer, clothes are soaking wet after spinning

If it fill and motor runs but will not agitate it likely is the coupler. If you have the cabinet off and see the motor here is what you do.
there are 2 metal straps that attach the motor to the transmission. take the screws out that hold the straps on and pop the straps out of their slots. the motor will then come off and the coupler is between the motor and transmission. One section goes on motor shaft and one on the transmission shaft with rubber bushing in between.
Coupler part number is 285753A

Won't spin won't agitate

This is a link showing the part I suspect needs replacing in your washer. It's the motor coupler -- when it breaks, nothing turns but the motor itself.

My Kenmore 70 series washing machine is not agitating OR draining. I am not sure if a broken motor coupler might be the problem? Any ideas?

Yep - the coupler or transmission is bad.

Agitate/Spin Issues (again)

if your coupler is good change your agitator dogs that will fix slow wash and clutch on top of transmission or lid switch for no spin
