Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
I have a kenmore elite top loader washer. It won't agitate properly. I agitates really slow and almost sounds like a clicking noise with it. The lights in our laundry room dim as the washer makes the clicking sound. It drains and spins perfectly. It just doesnt agitate to the full extent. The longer I let it agitate the slower it seems to agitate. Any ideas?
Does the bottom of your agitator work correctly? We had the same problem if you pop the cap off the top of your agitator there is a cam in there with 3 dogs that engage the agitator causing it to spin. If the bottom part is agitating correctly then chances are the dogs in the cam assembly are shot. If the bottom is agitating correctly then it is very possible you have something stuck under the bottom section of the agitator. If this is the case remove the top cover (same as before it's just a lid that pops off) inside you will see a 1/2" square use a 1/2" drive ratchet with a 3" or 6" extension unscrew this piece remove the top section of the agitator then the bottom. Once the bottom is out check to make sure all is clear inside the washer. Reassemble in the reverse order making sure the lower section sits all the way down on the splines for the drive mechanism. If neither one of those solve the problem I would suspect you have an issue in the drive train of the washer.
