Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
Two year old washer. Other phases of cycle seem ok ie. filling, agitating and draining. Prior to not spinning at all washer would spin but would not drain completely. Clothes felt heavy with water requiring a second spin. When the spin came to a stop you can hear the sound of an object braking it's speed by plowing through water even though there is no water visible in the bottom of the basket. This noise of the basket dragging through water is noticable when tub is empty and rotated by hand indicating the tub is not draining completely. Basket rotates by had but with considerable effort. Could this be clutch assembly, drive block or drive coupler assembly, none or all of the above.

If you know how to get the cover off and jump the lid switch it can be
easy. first see if the motor is running, if its not most of the time
the blue wire coming out of the timer controls the spin cycle. get a
meter set it to read ac and see if you have 120v coming out. if you
dont its the timer. if the motor is running, you probably need a
clutch. also before you get too far check the lid switch. even of it
looks good sometimes they split and appear to work normal. easy fix.
If the spin setting is not working chances are that your lid switch is bad. The lid switch is a safety feature installed that makes it so that unless the lid is closed the machine won't go into spin. This keeps from allowing the spin to shoot water all over the place if the lid is up. It is an easy fix though and very cheap. There are two panels on the side of the control panel. If you pop those off with a flat head screw driver you will find a screw holding down that control panel on each side. Remove those and then lay the panel back. Next insert the flat head under the front of the machine where the crack is at about an inch from the top of the machine. Pop it up and you will see the lid switch there underneath there. Remove it and follow to where it connects in the panel and disconnect and then install the new one. It should work fine again for you. Let me know if you have any other questions.
Could be the lid switch or the motor coupler. Click HERE to get a laymans guide to fixing this washer. It is easy to fix if you know the secret which is removing the cabinet.
Hope I helped with the repair of your problem.
An Accept from you is how I get paid.

Not sure if this is belt driven or direct drive but if belt driven
check the belt. I direct drive check the coupling between the motor and
trans. Will only have to remove motor to check. If direct drive and
coupling looks ok then the trans is locked up.
Check also this:
Remove power to unit.Remove 2 spring clips holding pump to motor. No need to remove hoses. Set pump aside. 2 springs hold motor to trans. Could be screw holding spring clips on but these are just fo shipping. Remove the spring clips and the motor will slide off. Look at coupling. Good or bad? Turn trans by hand in both directions. If it will not turn it is locked up.Work Safe. Good Luck
If there is problem with drive coupler then
Here is a link to website which explains how to install a drive coupler. In addition, it explains how to remove the outside shell of your washing machine to gain access to the items you need to access..... http://www.affordableappliance.com/Tips/CouplerInstallation.htm
