Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
How do you change the belt on a kenmore heavy duty 70 series extra capacity top loading clothes washing machine? I'm a total beginner. Can I just unscrew the back and easily find the belt and replace? We think it's the belt, because it doesn't agitate or spin.

Your washer should be a direct drive unit, it has no belt. If you hear the motor running but nothing is happening you probably have a broken motor coupler. The coupler is about $10.
Pop off the trim pieces on each end of the console.
Remove the two screws that hold the console to the cabinet and flip the console back.
Remove the two clips that hold the cabinet to the rear panel of the washer and unplug the lid switch harness. The cabinet will tilt forward and slide off.
Remove the clips holding the water pump and move it to the side.
Unplug the wires from the motor and remove the clips holding it.
You will see the motor coupler.
Make sure you can turn the gearcase shaft with a pair of pliers so it is not locked up.
Post back and let me know what you find or if you need any help.
