Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
On my Kenmore washer, my bleach dispenser tube is clogged. How do I clean it out? I can feel something down in the tube, either pieces of built up calcium or soap that someone put in the wrong place, or something. The tube is only about 4 or 5 inches long, and about half is full. I can get the tube off the dispenser at the top, but it appears the tube goes into the tub. I'm afraid to pull too hard. How can I clean this out?
If I can't clean it, could I plug up the tube that brings the water to the dispenser to wash down whatever is in the dispenser tray? This is the water that leaks since it can't drain.
Thanks. I actually ended up cutting the tube between the bend and the tub and cleaning out the tube from there. Then I put it back together with a brass connector. The solenoid seems to be working and there is no leaks last night. Today it will get a workout from the wife, so we will see the real test!

If you cant get something in the tub to clean it out you may want to check into just replacing it. Are you sure there isn't a solenoid attached to allow the bleach to empty in at a certain time of the cycle and if that is bad and not opening up you would have the same condition

Does the unit make a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned. Try setting the cycle to spin only and verify if water pumps out. If it does not, then the unit could possibly be experiencing an issue with a faulty pump, timer, door lock assembly or control board. Contact a professional to move forward accurately. However, regarding the odor my advice to you is first rub some bleach around the door gasket. Let this dry. Next rub some vinegar around the door gasket. Let this dry. (Do NOT mix the bleach and vinegar) Then run a hot empty load of bleach in all three dispensers. Put 1/2 cup of bleach in the detergent dispenser and fill the softener and bleach dispenser to the max fill line with bleach. Once that is done repeat the process with vinegar. Please make sure you run a load of towels or some sort of items that will not matter if you get a little bleach on them once this process is done.
