Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
The switch that activates the machine is in a "down" position, meaning that even if you open/close the cover, it doesn't engage the switch.
This is a tricky problem the switch mount has come loose
1 unplug the machine from the wall
2 take your fingers and slide them up under the lip of the housing of the washing machine where the switch is down
3 once you have located the switch modue under the lip slowly squeeze your fingers to see if the housing moves the switch up
4 when you feel the module move up and you are still holding it up take a small flat blade screw driver in your other hand and put it in the slot to push the actuator down listen for a click
5 if you hear it click then the switch is ok it just needs the mounts tightened
6 To tighten the switch body, force the tub in the opposite direction of the switch by pushing the top of the agitator .
7 Using a flashlight find the screws holding the switch body and tighten
8 If the body is tight use the flat head screw drive to se if the switch clicks if so you are ready to test if you do not hear the click you will need to bend the metal actuator lever up slightly nutil you hear the click
9 Pulg the washer in , turn on , close the door and you should be read to wash!
10 If this does not work, remove the switch module and take to apliance repair supply and replace
BEST OF LUCK TO YOU!
