Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
The last load of laundry was a small load and it didn't quite drain all the way, then it kicked itself off before the spin cycle and now if you turn on the the spin cycle it just hums.This is a Kennmore 80 series large capacity.I am not sure how old it is.
You most likely have a broken motor coupling. It is located between the motor and the transmission. It is an easy repair and only costs around 20 dollars. To change it out simply unplug the washer and tip it back so you can work under it. The first thing you will see is the pump. Take off the two clamps with a flat head screw driver and move it to the side. Do not take off the hoses unless you want water everywhere. Next you will see the motor. The motor is held up by two clamps. The clamps have 2 screws in each one. Remove the screws and with your flat head pop off the clamps. Make sure you hold the motor cause when you take off that first clamp the motor will drop. The motor coupling will come off with it. Put your new one on, (it only goes on one way) and put everything back together again. You will be up and running good as new in no time again. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful. Good luck and glad to help.
