Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
I was washing and it stopped washing during the wash cycle and started making this loud buzzing noise. It will not do anything now except make that noise.
Sounds like your motor coupling is broken. It's not a big thing so don't worry to much. It only costs about 10 dollars and is easy to repair. The motor coupling sits between the motor and the transmission and is what spins the transmission when the motor spins it. It breaks from age or from over loading the machine to many times. To fix, just unplug the washer and tip it back so you can work under it comfortably. Remove the wire harness connected to the motor. Next, there are two clamps holding the motor up. Remove the screws and pop off the clamps with a flat head. Be careful because once you get one clamp off the motor will fall so hold it and don't smash your fingers. The motor coupling will come out with it. Put your new one on, it only goes on one way. Put the motor back and hook it all back up and you will be good to go again. You should be able to get a motor coupling easy as they are pretty common. Just check with your local appliance repair shop. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful to you. Good luck and I am glad I could help you out.
