Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
After the water fills up the machine does agitate, but then stays stuck in that mode.
Is it the timer mechanism?
If so what part do I need to get?
Thank You Sully

If the washer fills but does not agitate or spin, this is usually a symptom of a bad lid switch. The switch will either be located on the right hand side of the washer tub opening, or in the rear on the left hand side under the console. If you have a right hand model, examine the lid and make sure the plunger that activates the switch when it is closed is still intact. The plunger is a plastic piece that is physically mounted on the lid. Sometimes they break off. If the plunger is intact, try taking a small object (like a screwdriver or popsicle stick and push down on the lid switch contact while the lid is open and the timer knob started. You should hear a distinctive "click" when you push on the switch and the washer will agitate. Sometimes the switch can become loose and no longer make good contact. If this is the case, simply tighten the two mounting screws on the tub opening. If the switch relay is not clicking you may need to replace it. The part runs about $35.
If you have the left hand style switch that is enclosed under the console, the contacts are closed by a small metal bar on the back of the lid. Sometimes this bar becomes bent or loose. Open and close the lid and listen for a distinctive "click". If you don't hear anything, you may need to adjust the metal bar, or replace the switch. This style of switch tends to cost a bit more.
If you can provide me with your model number (located under the wash lid along the tub opening), I can research the part number for you and let you know where you can get it and give you step-by-step instructions on how to replace it. This is a simple repair job that the average consumer can perform with simple instructions and a few household tools. First, determine if this is the cause of your problem. Post back with comments and let me know if this helps you.
