Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
The water in our Kenmore 70 series washing machine started filling up at a faster rate (like 2 or 3 times the normal amount) and did not stop. It started to overfill and water was spilling onto the floor. I had to turn the machine off to stop the water flow. Is there something wrong with a part that regulates the flow and if there is would you recommend replacing this part or buying a new machine. This machine is 18 yrs old. Thanks.. Mike

Probably no parts for a machine that old
consider getting a new unit that is more power and water efficient

Yeah you need to replace the water valve. To get to it you need to remove the cabinet on the newer direct drive models, If yours has a rear access panel then you simply pop the top to get to the valve after removing the hoses. Fairly simple job. Here is a good website for direct drive coupling replacement . It shows you how to open the cabinet. http://repair2000.com/coupling.html
GVI 151 is the generic part that fix all belt drive models. Direct drive will need its own little water valve buy hay it ain't but 20 bucks.
For a better explanation post you model number in the comment box and I will research it further for you amigo.

I have a Kenmore R80 washing machine and it has worked well for years. Last time I used it it smelled like burning rubber. I have not used it since. Is it worth trying to get repaired or is it probably a bearing? It is not frozen
