Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer

Where is the clutch in the Kenmore 90 series?

Ok..so I'm a girl... : ) I fixed my dryer last month, so I figure I can fix my washer too! Kenmore series 90- service man came out and said I needed a new clutch for the machine- 247.00 please.
I called Sears, they have the part and it's only 47.00- Is this something I can fix, or do you think I need to give it up to the ghost?
I've been all over the web trying to see if there are posts on how to fix this. thanks..hope you can help!!

    Thank you for your comments- now I'm a bit concerned since I had a repairman come out to tell me what was wrong- he stated it was the clutch...so, now what?

  • vcarsontaylo Feb 07, 2009

    Oh boy...a new washing machine...how depressing can that be in this economy..*sigh* -- still not sure what I will do.

    One more question...wouldn't the repair man need to take apart the machine to tell me what the problem was..?

    I wasn't home when he came out and my charming son told me he just tested the machine and fiddled a little bit...maybe the coupler instead of the clutch??

It is not an easy repair. it will require a major dissemblance the washer. perhaps the best bet would be to apply the $247 repair cost to a new machine. The clutch/transmission is about as far into the machine as one can get. The parts are difficult to maneuver and are heavy.

It probably ain't even the clutch. You must inspect the washer first. Here is some WISDOM

    That is right . The repair man ain't Houdini.
    You gotta look at it before you can make an assessment.

I have a 90 series washer model 20912 that will only drain when empty or nearly empty. It will spin ok, but again, only when empty.


It sounds like your floating gear in your gearcase failed or a bad clutch. Most likely its the gearcase.

Kenmore 90 plus series: heavy duty super capacity won't agitate


this is the site to find out how to fix your washer.
you have a broken drive coupling.
it probably wont agitate or spin, but will fill and drain.
you need to remove 2 screws from the control panel, hinge it back and then remove the 2 brass colored clips that hold the cabinet to the base. once you do then pull the entire cabinet forwards to a 45 degree angle and pull it off the base.
then pull the 2 clips off pump and then 2 more on the motor. that will allow you to get to the drive coupling. you will find it to be broken.
replace it with part number 285753a for about 15-20 bucks.
