Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer

Whirlpool Ultimate Care top load

When I start the washing machine the cycle will run for 5 to 10 minutes then will stop. I have to open the lid and slam until it catches and machine starts again. It only does this one time and will continue to run for the entire cycle after that. Would this be the switch or the timer?

Likely, the lid switch needs position adjustment or replacement. Open the top cover to access the switch. Connect the two switch wires together and tie up so that they can't short out to anything, then run the machine a couple of times to see if this fixes the primary problem. If so, reconnect the wires, then try the switch adjustment for fix, then replace the switch if adjustment fails.

Washer stopping mid-cycle


Push down on lid. You may have a bad lid switch. Start machine and press the switch down with something like a screwdriver and see if the motor runs.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Washing Machine Rinse cycle not workin


Most of these spin related problems are attributed to a lid switch malfunction. A washer that fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle and drain is commonly caused by a lid switch. The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

If the switch requires replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. Just use your model number as your search criteria. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price.

Let me know if you need further assistance. I hope this helps you.

Washer stopped after wash cycle


The lid switch is the culprit. Push down on the lid it should start. It needs to be adjusted . the tab on the lid is not activating the switch. Try triming the door bumpers.

Washing machine will not cycle


I have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II. My washing machine would not cycle once it filled with water. I purchased a lid switch from partselect.com. The installation took five minutes. This corrected the problem. I hope this helps.

Washer won't start spin cycle


sounds like a lid assy issue, can you hear a "clicking" just before the lid is closed, try opening nad closing a few times listening for a distinct "click" if not the machine doesnt think the door is closed and for safety reasons wont spin and drain.
