Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
My washing machine won't always spin on its own (more trouble with larger loads). when we open the top, we can get the spin cycle started by manually spinning the drum. Any ideas?
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.
Since it will spin on lighter loads, the problem points to the clutch.
When the washer goes into spin mode, the motor is reversed to spin the pump and a clutch on top of the transmission engages to spin the tub.
Following is a description of how to access the clutch and check the clutch bands.
Sears and Whirlpool have a replacement parts kit for the clutch.
If the bands look OK, the problem could be in the neutral drain inside the transmission.
