Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer

Kenmore dryer 70 series

I was replacing the belt which had broken and upon belt replacement I plugged the machine in to check operational status and everything was fine. I then forgot to unplug the unit and began placing the covers back on. When I was placing the exhaust cover back on, I saw a spark and I quickly unplugged the unit. Now the unit will not start back up. Suggestions?

On the panel that you were putting on check to see if there is a burn mark. then check the wire that you hit. fix any broken wires. and also check your fuses or circuit breakers.

I have a Kenmore 70 series dryer that is not spinning. When turned on u can here the Moter but it won't spin. Belt looks ok.


Is the motor pulley rotating? if it is , how tight is the belt, is the motor pulley turning and the belt slipping? Is the motor weak perhaps, if it is not turning, or has lost power it may need replacing. if it does rotate and the belt is slipping replace the belt and possibly the pulley if you have that option.

From your description, the dryer belt could be in need of replacement. The burning smell could come from the motor pulley spinning and trying get a grip to turn the drum.

  • Unplug the power cord of the Kenmore 70 series washer from the electrical outlet before attempting to replace the drive belt. Remove the end caps from the control console by pushing in on the center of the caps with your thumbs and pulling the caps forward.
  • 2 Unfasten the screws on the front of the control console with a screwdriver and set the screws aside. Flip the control console back so it is resting against the rear hinges.
  • 3 Locate the two-pronged electrical plug on the top of the washer near the back and unfasten it by pulling the plug straight up by hand. Remove the metal clips on the top of the washer, prying them up with a screwdriver and setting them out of the way.
  • 4 Lift the washer cabinet off the base and set it aside. Locate the motor at the base of the cabinet near the front and unhook the springs from the motor carriage with a pair of pliers.
  • 5 Unbolt the motor from the motor carriage, using a socket wrench to unfasten the bolts. Unplug the electrical wiring harness from the motor by hand.
  • 6 Lift the motor off the motor carriage and take the drive belt off the motor and transmission pulleys, discarding the belt. Place the new drive belt around the transmission and motor pulleys.
  • 7 Plug the electrical wiring harness into the motor by hand and secure the motor to the motor carriage with the bolts. Attach the springs to the motor carriage by hand.
  • 8 Place the washer cabinet back over the base and secure it with the metal clips on the top lid. Connect the two-pronged electrical plug to the top lid of the washer by hand.
  • 9 Flip the control console back down over the washer lid and secure the console with screws in the front. Place the caps back over the ends of the control console by hand.
  • 10 Plug the Kenmore 70 series washer into the electricity supply and test wash.

    70 series how to replace belt


    the kenmore 70 series do not come with belts they have a coupler behind the motor. Fairly easy to replace you can actually find videos on youtube.com to walk you through how to change it.

    I have a Kenmore 70 series 28741


    First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

    http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.82874120+

    Go to the section on Top and Cabinet and you should see how the switch mounts to the cabinet.

    You'll have to remove the cabinet first.

    Please see GURU JSROCK516 Description of how to remove cabinet and access the transmission. http://www.fixya.com/support/r699497-replacing_gearcase

    After you've removed the cabinet, the rest should be relatively easy.

    Kenmore series 70 washer will only fill with water.


    I recently had this problem. It was found that the main drive belt broke and the washer would fill but not spin, agitate or drain. I replaced the belt and everything worked again. A defective or disconnected cover switch would also cause the same problem.
