Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Keeps stopping after 10 seconds of operation

The machine just stopped in the middle of a load of laundry. It is filled with soapy water. A relative thought the tub may be unbalanced and shifted it around. It then worked for 15 seconds before stopping again. Shifting the tub has not worked again. However, if I unplug it for a minute, then re-plug it, it will sometimes work for 15 seconds before just stopping again.
I know nothing about washing machines. However,the machine is over 10 years old, and I hate to spend much money having a repair person come out to fix it.
Is there any simple solution to my problem?

    I explained the problem wrong, and discovered it does run on certain settings. I re-posted with a more accurate description of the problem. Here's how I described the problem:



    "Machine stopped in the middle of a load. It is full of soapy water. I have discovered that it will run when the timer is set on any of the "minute" marks on the wash cycle, but shuts off when it gets below those "minute" marks, approaching the rinse cycle. It then does not run when below those "minute" marks of the wash cycle, until the rinse line. It then runs when set anywhere from the rinse line down close to the spin line. It does not spin. No water enters or exits during any of the settings where it will run. This is all the same whether in the permanent press section of the timer, the normal wash, or the heavy duty wash section. In any of these areas, it only runs early in the wash cycle and early in the rinse cycle.
    Does this mean I need a new timer??
    If so, any instructions on how to replace that would be appreciated.
    Thanks for any help anyone can give."

Motor is bad and needs to be replaced. It is drawing too many amps and tripping its overload. Once cool it will run again only to stop. About $100 for the motor.

Spinning cycle


Keeping in mind that the soap & bleach gets dispensed into your wash on the second to last rinse cycle and that most all rinse cycles are in cold water. Is your cold water valve screen plugged causing your washer to rinse poorly? Are you using the HE detergent? If not maybe the washer is sudsing up to much and having a hard time rinsing all the suds and bleach out and leaving the clothes soapy.

Fill the washer up with no clothes in it on a cold/cold wash setting does it take a long time to fill the washer up? Also when it is full and agitating is there suds in the washer?

Last suggestion is if the drain is hose is a lot higher than the top of the washer it might have a hard time draining out all of the soap water before the next load

Kenmore washing machine will not stop filling


There is a water level sensor in the tube and it might be plugged. IT could also be the load selector or the control module.

The water will not go into tub, keeps overflowing and flooding my laundry room


If the water will stop filling when you stop the machine, then you need to replace the "pressure switch" on the unit. Here is the part to order.

If you have to turn the water off at the faucet to get it to stop filling, then you need to replace the "water inlet valve" on the unit. Here is that part to order.

I am having 2 issues. Most importantly, my front load washer/dryer is skipping drying time. I typically wash the clothes then put dryer sheets in and use the dry only on low heat option. It starts...


Your two issues may be related. A combo washer / dryer uses a fine spray of cool water to condense moisture out of the air stream while drying. This water is then pumped down the drain. Cold water is also used to fill the softner dispenser. If the inlet screen on the cold water connection to the machine is restricted, those are two of several things which could show up. Turn cold water valve supplying water to machine off. Unscrew cold water fill hose from machine. Remove screen from inside machine, clean, re-install, re-attach cold water fill hose, turn cold water valve back on and see if performace improved.
