Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
I have washer apart .I see the pump . How does one get it of . Does it just pull of cause I don't see and bolts to remove. Thanks Hope some one can help me .
Sally, you should see two clips that are securing the pump to the motor. Those clips are on the top and the bottom and should pop off easily. Then the pump just pulls right off the motor. In some instances, if that pump was leaking at the seal and was left to leak for a long time, the shaft of the motor that inserts into the pump can become rusty and make it very hard to pull the pump off, as well as get the replacement back on the machine.
Hope this helps,

Tips for a great answer:
Finding the pump on the Kenmore Elite top load washer is a fairly easy project that can be done in about a half hour. The Kenmore Elite is part of the GE line of appliances and shares many of the same interior mechanical parts and systems. The Kenmore Elite is a very streamlined exterior cabinetry design, but the interior can be accessed by removing just a few screws in order for you to locate the water pump.
things you'll need:
Unplug the electrical cord of the Kenmore Elite top load washer from the electrical outlet before attempting to locate the pump.
Remove the end caps on the control console of the dryer by pressing in on the caps with your thumbs and pulling the caps forward to unfasten them.
Unfasten the screws on the ends of the control console in the front with a screwdriver and tilt the console back so that it rests on the back hinges.
Unplug the top lid switch from the rear of the lid that sits underneath the control console, pulling the switch straight up off the metal prongs by hand.
Pry the metal clips that sit on the top lid up with a screwdriver, lifting the clips to unlatch the top and pull the top lid cover off the washer base, setting it aside.
Locate the water pump at the base of the washing machine on the top of the motor shaft.
take the cover off the pump and remove any blockage or debris.
thanks and good luck
