Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

A humming sound in the cycle knob

On the front panel of my washer it reads Kenmor heavy duty 60/stylemaster 902202 i don't know what model it is or what series it is we have had this washer since the early 80's. The problem i'm having with the washer is when i set the cycle wash and pull the knob to start washing all it does is hum "nothing happens", but when i sometimes slam the top load door it begans to work, but it stops again when its time to drain the water and spin. What can i do?

Make sure that the room is quiet then check that there is a clicking noise from the lid when it is nearly closed

If not then the microswitch is out of whack and needs adjusting

When you slam the door down it is probably enough to make the switch but then the machines movement will undo that action

Kenmore stylemaster 902202 will not spin, agitate or drain tub spins freely

Check door switch: If the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining. Release switch. Motor should stop. Press switch a second time. Washer should start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid switch is pressed, replace the switch. Or

I have an old kenmore washer, on which I cannot find the model number. It needs a new drive belt. The only information that I have is that it is marked as a Kenmore Heavy Duty 80, and inside the door is...

Go to a local Sears or Whirlpool store and tell them you have an old "belt drive" Kenmore washer that needs a new belt. All of these were built by Whirlpool Corporation and I believe used a common belt.

Good luck.

(kenmore heavy duty 90, stylemaster 902202) The female part of the washer where you connect the waterline is leaking. i switched the hoses and the same valve leaked so it's a part inside the washer that is...

I am not sure of this particular model-- I have not had experience with this exact one--
However-- Let's see if we can figure it out:

Is the back sealed pretty tight-- no obvious panels can be removed?

How about the FRONT of the machine?
Some have 2 screws down toward the floor-- hidden from view as you stand in front of the machine-- Can you see anything that lets you get the front panel loose?
That often allows you to slip a putty knife in between 2 retaining clips, that hold the front of the top, to the front.. When you push IN on these clips, the Top is freed, and you can flip the top, and get inside.

Let me know if you find any of those possible entrance methods--

If not-- we'll have to look closer to the sides and the back-- Or getting the top loose, so that it can flip back--
The mechanic has to be able to get inside one way or other!

Give me some clues, and maybe I can help more-
