Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
First, see the Sears parts site for your washer.
The Kenmore / Whirlpool top load uses a reversing motor to initiate the pump for draining and the transmission to spin.
If you cannot hear the motor trying to turn the pump, (but the washer will agitate) the problem points to the Timer, or the Lid Switch.
Try to bypass the Lid Switch by removing the Console and jumping the two outermost pins on the switch.
Following is an illustrated guide for how to access the console.
This is the Whirlpool PDF on installation and maintenance of direct drive washers. See the section on how to bypass the lid switch and on the transmission.
If the washer will drain but not spin the problem points to the Neutral Drain Assembly in the transmission.
The Whirlpool PDF has a very good explanation of how the assembly works.
Ours had the same problem, no draining or spinning unless the washer was stopped and restarted.
We replaced the neutral Drain Assembly for about $15 vs. $170 for a transmission.
If the Lid Switch is OK, please re-post a request for how to replace the neutral assembly.
