Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore 70 series (Mo No 110.20722990) and it will not agitate or spin. The motor is not running when it is supposed to. I hear the hum and the lights slightly dim (as they always did)when it is time to agitate or spin, but the motor does not go on. I checked the lid switch(fine) and coupling(fine as expected). What should I do next?

If you've confirmed that the lid switch is good and the motor coupling is intact, it sounds like you have a either bad drive motor, or drive motor switch. If the motor is humming, however, more than likely the switch is working The following link explains how to replace the motor:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r599953-replacing_drive_motor_kenmore_or

The part number for the drive motor (which includes the switch) is 3352287. The cheapest place I found it listed was at searspartsdirect.com for about $135.

If you do determine that the switch is bad, the part number is 8529896. The cheapest place I found it listed was pcappliancerepair.com for about $62.

If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hop this helps you.

NOTE: It still may be a good idea to replace the motor coupling while you have the washer apart. The part number is 285753A. Appliancepartspros.com carries it for about $11.

70 Series Kenmore Washer Agitates in Heavy Duty regardless of switch selection


Yours is a 2 speed motor. Does it spin in 2 different speeds. If so, then it most likely is designed with only to agitate in 1 speed. If it only spins in one speed, then your motor is defective

My Kenmore 70 series is 18 years old. It will not


Hello. Since your machine is 18 years old and the agitation/spin is costly to repair I would definitely recommend a replacement washer.

Washer agitates, drains OK, but spin doesn't start


Timer is defective. Your unit has a netural drain. When finished agitating, the shuts down and then starts up reversing to drain and spin. On the initial reverse start, the water drains without the transmission spinning. After a timed period 3-4 minutes, the timer is supposed to pause, stopping the motor for a few seconds. When the motor stops again, the transmission shift to the spin cycle and when the timer resumes power tothe motor it should spin. You are doing the same thing when you lift the lid...stopping the timer and then the tranny shifts and when you set the lid down, the washer spins. Replace the timer.......

Kenmore 70 series washer


Does it hum or click? If it clicks your coupler is out or a hum could be a faulted gearcase.
