Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore Elite agitates, pumps water but does not always spin

Same problem as Lori Morris, washer works fine in all cycles but does not always spin, At end of cycle most of the water has pumped out but the spin did not occur. Manually turing the tub and closing the lid usually works after 1 to 4 attempts. Does not occur as often with smaller loads

Could be several things with those symptoms, like your basket drive/clutch assembly has oil all over the pads. this generally occures when the agitator shaft seal leaks causing oil from the gearcase/transmission to splash onto the clutch pads, hence creating slippage. you may also have an item of clothing stuck/jamming the inner & outer basket. but since you mentioned it's not as pronounced with smaller loads, and you can "coax" it by turning the basket manually, i.e. push starting. I'd bet on the clutch. if it makes a "thump thump thump" noise as well during spin, it could be a worn drive block, as long as the spin tube isn't damaged, it's an easy fix too. back to the clutch though. just replacing or repairing the clutch though is only dealing with the end result of a larger problem not the source.

If you have a local repair person who does shop service they may be able to repair the gearcase and clutch for a fraction of replacing those parts, it's a common repair at our shop for around $100 because you don't have the "trip charge" most places charge. I'd walk you through it, but it's not a job most folks should tackle. pull the cabinet off first an determine if it's got oil on the clutch (you'll see evidence of oil splashed around if so)

good luck

My kenmore elite washer 110.23022101 doesn't spin or agitate. When in the spin cycle, the motor comes on and I hear swooshing of some water but the basket stay still?


It is most likely not draining the water out so won't spin. Check pump filter and that the outlet house is not blocked.

gabehart....sounds like belt is slipping. Replace it. The water pump is on a separate smaller motor so is not affected by the agitator/spin motor.

Washer fills/agitates and stops prior to draining


If pump works fine or still pumps out water, then it is a timer malfunction. Replace the timer and you should be fine. To locate a part number for your timer, refer to www3.sears.com with the model number off your washer.
