Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
I have a kenmore 80 series washer model 909964 ( # on the lid of washer). It is about 9 years old and just recently started having this problem. It has a variable setting for the size of the load and now when you set it to the full load capacity it only fills about half full with water...it works but you can only fill it half full and takes twice as long to wash. Is there an easy fix. My husbands resolution is to "go get a new one"..Its been a reall good washer with the large capcity to wash large comfortors and rugs and really dont want to replace if i dont have to
Remove edge decore trims from left and right side front of control panel
remove phillips screws from bottom corners of contol panel
remove knob from water level selector
raise control panel ~1 inch then flip over backwords on pivots
depress lock tab on right/underside of water level control body where it touches metal mount plate
rotate water level control body 45deg anti clockwise
pull body off
top side of body next to knob shaft is 1/8 hex head bolt
turn clockwise to rais water level
anticlockwise to lower water level
machine can be operated with this part not fitted so can check level. fill, adjust screw, fill will start again, adjust screw, until water level is correct
reinstall in reverse order
Incidentally, the cause is a VERY small wire spring inside the control body that is not really up to the task, and stretches over years.
Its a common occurrence, and I make this repair, on callouts, no parts required, couple times a month you may have to flip the switch to reset to get the water to restart filling
