Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

I need some answers.

I recently bought a used kenmore washing machine. Model #110.26914690. I have it perfectly level, and the spin cycle will not balance out. I tried it without any clothes and it still spins out of balance. Can you give me a clue of what is wrong?

    actually it does make a noise. Kinda sounds like a horse's gallup. And yes the top of the center cone wiggles back and forth. How do I tighten that?

You need a spin basket tub block and nut and a whirlpool tub wrench.You can get that at the appliance store when you buy the tub block .On the control panel locate the two phillips screws at the back or front of the control panel at the bottom where the panel meets the base .Back them out far as you can .Pull the control panel forward and tilt it back(im assuming you've unplugged the washer first) you will see a connector that goes to the lid switch unplug it .Next you will see two gold clips (notice how they go) pop them out with a screw driver .Tilt the washer body back toward you standing at the front and walk backwards with it to remove it .Then unsnap the splash ring from the outer tub and remove it.Pull the rinse cup from the agitator under that you will see a cap remove it .Then you will need a 7/16 inch wrench with a long extension to remove the agitator bolt and pull the agitator.then you will see a spanner nut made of
aluminum that's where the wrench comes in remove that nut and pull the spin tub under that will be the tub block tap it off the spin tube and slide the new one on .Replace the spin tub and nut using the spanner wrench tighten the nut tight as you can by hand then hit the wrench handle with a hammer to get it tighter.Then reverse the procedure to reassemble.When you replace the body of the washer look down through the lid opening the front of the washer body goes under the base and the sides go on top along the edges. print theese instructions its really not that hard that will fix it

I have a nec nw-691, when you put it on spin cycle it brings error message --lid open??? plz help

Yuo might try making sure it is still level but I'd just try using a lower spin speed. How have to use "gentle spin" when I wash towels or my washing machine has errors and stops. If still too damp just use a gentle spin only cycle once more to finish the job.

Hello. i have a kenmore washer machine 70 series that jumps all over the place when its on spin cycle and yes I did make sure the washing machine is level. I just don't understand whats happening

Hi P, I don't understand why I'm getting these questions, because I'm in the automobile section, but as I'm here and so is your question, here's the answer! The machine is being thrown out of balance. Try loading the clothing more evenly and see what happens. If the fault reappears it will be the bearings and centralization mechanism inside the spinning basket. Keep in mind that centrifugal weight is increased as the tub rotates. If all the clothes (or most are on one side) the weight increases with the speed and will make the whole machine shake. If its something which has recently started after having had the machine for some time, I would suspect a bearing or broken mounting inside the spin tub. Regards John

Spins out of balance even emty

This model of washer does not have an out of balance cut off switch. If the load is not balanced properly the tub could hit the cabinet sides. If the unit spins evenly while empty & out of balance while loaded, I recommend checking & balancing the load. If the basket spins out of balance while empty, I recommend having the suspension springs & balance ring checked. Be sure not to wash light fabric with heavy fabric clothes. Also ensure that the adjustable feet are level, that's most important.

Machine drum makes loud noice in the spin cycle. Makes the same sound that a top-loading machine makes when it goes out of balance. Help.

  • Hi,
  • Try these:
  1. Balance the load
  2. Level the machine
  3. Inspect the water pump for a blockage
  4. Inspect the coupling
  5. Inspect the transmission
  6. Adjust the drive belt tension
  7. Check the motor bearings
  8. Check the drum brakes
please rate my suggestion...

Kenmore series 80 washer makes loud knocking noise during spin cy

Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.
