Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
Kenmore 70series top loader: At the end of spin cycle the brake does not engage. The drum continues to spin and bounces up and down slightly making a load banging noise.
This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.
First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
Enter your model number and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.
A couple of possibilities.
1. The Brake Cam Driver in the brake assembly (a plastic piece could be broken.
2. The break springs may also be broken.
Following is the Whirlpool / Kenmore installation and maintenance guide for direct drive washers. It has a section on how to access and replace the brake and drive tube.
You'll have to remove the agitators and the drive block. There is a spanner wrench to remove the drive block nut but I've found that a short 10: pipe wrench hooked over one of the nubs on the nut and sharply taped with a hammer will loosen it.
