Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer

Kenmore series 800 lid switch

It seems like the lid switch is the problem, but I am not sure how to change the switch. My wife said she was having to slam the lid for the washer to come on. Of course she told me this after it would not come on anymore. I cannot seem to figure out how to access the switch or any other parts for that matter.

Have to slam the lid so that the washer will start.


It is a faulty switch about to go bad that interupts the signal for safety. Repair Clinic.com sells them. Enter the make and model number then order it. Easy to change out ususally.

My kenmore 800 series washer started draining but stopped 3/4 of the way and now won't do anything at all


Put the machine into the spin cycle and start as normal. Then with the lid open take a item like a pencil and depress into the lid switch where the lid pushes down on a switch. If machine starts spinning remove and replace lid switch. Let me know.

Lid lock broken can I overide?


Washer not starting Cycle:
I would have to slam the washer lid before the washer recognized the lid was shut.
What I did to fix:
1. Ref the link below for Schematics
http://blog.kennyluong.com/Tricking-A-Maytag-Bravos-Washer/
2. Looking at the Lid Lock section of the Schematic:
Place a jumper between pins 2 and 3 of J15
This engages the 1st switch (Lid Lock) so, I don't have to slam the lid anymore
3. Since my Lock switch (2nd switch), which is engaged with a magnetic, is working, my work is done.
If you find that your machine is still not starting the cycle, you will need to
replace the Lid Lock mechanism or ref the above link for temp bypass.

Wife likes to check the wash cycle on the Kenmore


See the following Whirlpool / Kenmore Service manual for top load, direct drive washers.

From a liability standpoint, I cannot recommend bypassing the lid switch except during troubleshooting.

Mechanically it's simple to jump the two outer pins but again, I'd recommend against it from a liability and warranty standpoint.

I have a kenmore 70 series that wont drain. It washes and agitates, but wont drain what could be the problem


It sounds like the lid switch. Open the lid and depress the switch (with a pencil or similar) until it clicks. Then see if it spins. If it does not, replace the switch. If it does spin, check the plastic "pin" on the lid to be sure it hasn't broken off. It has to depress the switch when the lid is closed. The pin should be about 5/8" long.
