Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer

Open Question

My Kenmore 80 series is spinning wildly inside and at times won't even spin or agitate. Getting the humming sound

. Push and pull on the start stop and it would eventually start up. Also it started sparking and sending smoke up from behind the machine but I checked out the plug all the way til it enters the machine , no cuts or signs of arcing. I'm a fairly good DIYer with electrical experiece and would wanna give it a shot before I spend service money or throw it away.....any help is appreciated.

    I should say its at least 6 years old and now it bangs and spins, agitates wildly, to the point where I t made the loop base pop off and now flaps as well.

SOURCE: Kenmore 80 series won't spin

If it agitates and drains. leaving your clothes clean but soaking wet. It is most likely the transmission/gearbox. the motor is working otherwise it would not agitate. it is stuck in agitate mode and cannot "shift" into spin mode. new transmission will cost 140-170 and takes 2 or so hours to replace depending on skill level. total repair cost parts+labor $300ish you may want to ante up for a new machine at this point. if you cant to the labor yourself.
part# should be this: tho double check using your own model#
Part # AP3096209

SOURCE: Kenmore 80 series washer make high pitched whining noise

cold water screen in hose was half plugged causing it to either shut off the spin cylce due to lack of water or increase the spinning speed.
Hope this solves the problem.

Your timer has failed to initiate a pause for the transmission to lock in.
Replace your timer. Solve your problem.

check to make sure the belt hasn't come off. if it's direct drive make sure the shaft is working and moving freely. if all of these check out the motor that turns everything my be stuck, frozen up or just bad all together.

Kenmore washer won't spin or agitate. Sounds like it wants to but can't.


Does the washer fill with water then stop and hum? The problem may be in the timer or processor or it could be the switch that confirms the lid or door is closed.

I just replaced the transmission on my Kenmore 80. No agitation


your motor turns one way for the spin cycle and the other way for agitate. remove the coupler and test it that way.

You need to replace the Kenmore Washer Lid Switch. I had the same problem so being lazy I would just push down on the washer's lid and it would push the lid switch further down. making the water drain. after a while I just replaced the lid switch.
