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.

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

Where to find fuses. My dryer is not heating up.


Does your dryer have power? If yes, then check (1) the flow of air outside the house from your dryer tube and (2) your circuit breaker panel for each circuit in the house (I've not seen fuses/breakers built into dryers -- though that could change). Then check (3) your heating element, (4) thermostat, (5) high-temp thermal cutoff switch, and (6) for debris in the air flow path to / from from the centrifugal fan.

9 yr old Kenmore 90 series dryer wont heat


is it gas ? next time open dryer door and send full model number if it heats for a while you have bad gas coils,when you change them out watch out for the coil with three prongs on it,there is a metal piece that sometime gets stuck in old coil when you remove it,if it happens just poke it out of old coil and slide it back on post where new coil will be installed
