Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
During the spin cycle the drum will not start turning. I can start it turning by hand but it doesnt build up enough speed to spin dry the clothes.
When you spin it by hand dose it feel free or restricted? if rstricted you may have a peice of clothing between the two tubs.if free you can have a worn clutch.but it would agaitate fine.if wont agaitate or spin it may be your drive coupler.and if the drive coupler failed your washer will still drain.if you need more help you can email me thru FixYa God bless ,tom

If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary. Also check for drum bearing failure if your washing machine is noisy on the spin cycle. Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.
Turn the drum by hand and listen for loud noises. If the drum itself is split or the 'spider' is corroded, broken or has come apart from the back of the drum it will create a loud noise on every turn of the drum. (When the bearings have gone bad, the noise is constant the entire time the drum is spinning.)
Look for obvious dents and creases in the drum or look for coins or small objects stuck inside the tub underneath the drum when a horrendous noise is made while clothes are in the tub.
Clear the water pump from obstructions like coins or small objects when a noise occurs while the washing machine is emptying water.
Remove the sump hose and look for bra wires if you hear a light scraping noise when the drum is turned by hand. You can also check to make sure a wire isn't poking out of one of the holes in the drum. In this case, you can pull the wire out easily with pliers.
Take the belt off and run the motor alone if you hear a high pitched squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or wear. If you still hear the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing.
