Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
I can hear the motor but it is not spinning. clothes are wet. I used to be able just to run the spin cycle twice and it would work but now it doesn't spin at all. Help!
You may either have a broken motor coupler (connects the motor to the transmission) or the clutch/brake assembly is slipping. To test the motor coupler start a cycle, if it fills and agitates, the coupler is ok.
You can check the clutch/brake by selecting the spin cycle, open the lid and press the lid switch down using a pen. When the motor starts check for either a very slow spin or give it a boost by pushing the inner drum clockwise and see if it picks up any speed. If it spins just a little, the clutch/ brake assembly is slipping and will need to be replaced.

Thanks for all the helpful comments. My problem was solved, when I was just ready to call a repair person. All of a sudden it started working. I am not sure what caused it to work again. I had put in a large heavy load, which seems to have messed up the clutch/brake operation. I emptied it and twisted and jiggled the agitator, shook the machine a bit, and let it warm up (we had been renovating, so machine was in the cold garage for a few days).
Thanks again for the suggestions.
