Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
Someone said might be timer or coupler?
This is commonly caused by a lid switch malfunction. If the washer fills, agitates, then stops at the rinse and won't drain, or if the washer does an initial fill, then stops, this is a symptom of a lid switch malfunction.
The following link explains how to access and/or replace one:
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.
On some models the lid switch is mounted under the washer casing by one of the lid hinges. A rod on the lid hinge is the actuator that conacts the switch. If you locate the switch and can toggle it by hand, you may only need to adjust the rod by bending it slightly.
If the lid switch is found to be defective, this is a very simple repair, that usually costs about $20 to $30 to repair yourself.
Appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com and searspartsdirect.com usually have excellent exploded view diagrams of what I am referring to. Just type in your model number and look under the "Top and Cabinet Parts" section.
If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. Post back with a correct model number if the model number is not correct. I hope this helps you.
