Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer

1 Answer


Hi. My Kenmore 80 series (top loading) recently stopped working properly. My roomate loaded the washer with WAY TO MUCH clothes. Ever since then, the following has been happening:

Washer fills just fine, once spin cycle begins or even a draining cycle, the washer runs pretty loud for about 30 seconds... Then, it just shuts off. It will wait between 2-5 minutes, and repeat again. The washer is spinning while this is going on. It looks to be working while attempting to run. But it seems to shut itself off????

Any ideas???

Thanks so much!

    Great! Thanks a bunch! I'm going to give that a shot right now. I'll look online, I hate to be a pest, but would I remove the pump by removing the back from the machine and getting in there that way? Or would I be able to get to that from the loader?

    I'm in the process of removing the back now anyway... Will I notice the pump right away? Or is there something I should be looking for?

    Thanks again!

You have something gotten into your pump ,,, it trys to drain and spin but overloads the motor and shuts down till the motor switch resets .... remove the pump and take out whatever gotten in it and if that not possable replace the pump.

    1st you dont remove the back to get to it ,,,, take the 2 screws out of the console and pull it forward slitly and tilt back, unplug the 3 with plug from cabinet, remove the 2 hold down clips to the cabinet tilt forward and slide off ,,,, the pump is at the bottom with 2 hoses ,,,, only 2 clips holds it on ,,, go back same as taking apart

Kenmore series 80 model 110 wont stop filling!

There is a clear plastic hose that runs from the load selection switch to the side of the washer drum. This hose connects the fill sensor to the load switch. without it being in good condition and connected properly the washer won,t get a signal that it's full.

We have a Kenmore 80 series top load washer model 110.28803890. When the timer moves to spin it makes a load clicking noise and does nothing.

Timers are not supposed to make loud clicks. If it is, it's going bad. The same problem happened with my parent's Estate washer. It its on it's third timer!

Dryer spontaneously turns on, barrel doesn't spin

If the dryer is more than 10-15 yrs old its probably a good idea to get another one...from what you told me it sounds like a pretty serious electrical problem or short with the Motor or control switch...I wouldn't suggest you try and fix this one yourself...

Kenmore washer 80 series 4 years old has prob

You may not have the coupling seated properly. However, if the unit is agitating and spinning at the same time, you may have a more serious transmission problem.
