Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Long cycle It is taking my Kenmore Elite 3 hours to run a cycle. It appears to be stuck in the rinse cycle. It will be trickling water for hours. Eventually....the cycle will complete itself and all of the water is drained. We bought this in December 2004.

    Of course I have a cycle running right now with clothes in it so I can't really do your experiment right now. Once this is done....I can try it. Thanks!

    When we started the cycle with hot water it was flowing out strong. When we switched it to only came out as a slow trickle. What's next?

  • briaim0620 May 09, 2010

    It does appear to be the water coming from the house. The hot water was strong and the cold was not. There was also some build up in the area. Thanks for you I guess I need the help of a plummer!

It sounds like the water inlet may be restricted. Are you able to try a couple of things for me to verify?

What I would like you to do is to start a regular cycle with no clothes and have the water on the hot setting for wash, once it starts to fill with water change it to cold wash and see if the water pressure into the machine slows down.

If it runs slow on cold then either the cold hose or filter is plugged or the valve in the washing machine is bad.

    -Turn both water valves off at the wall that the washer hoses connect to.

    - Remove the one end of the hoses from the washer and leave the other end connected to the house

    - Put the hoses in the washer or in a bucket or laundry tub.

    - Turn on the valves at the wall one at a time and see if you get good flow from both. (the hot should be fine)

    -Turn off the water at the wall, if the cold water did not come out fast like the hot then your problem is in the house piping and you will need a plumber.

    - Look into the fitting where the hoses came off the washer, if there are screens in the fitting see if they looked plugged up with sediment. If so remove, clean and put back in place.

    - Reconnect the hoses and turn on the water valves. CHECK FOR LEAKS

    - Try the cold water fill again. if it is still slow and the hose pressure was good when not connected then the inlet valve in the machine is bad and needs replaced.

    It does sound like a job for a plumber. I hope thing work out good for you!

  • Philip May 09, 2010

    One more thing I just thought of, check the end of the cold hose that connects to the house, make sure the hose does not have a plugged screen at that end. This would be unusual, but could happen

Kenmore heavy duty 80 model 110. rinse cycle at cold is down to a trickle, and seems to be lessening. Takes hour plus for a full water load if mixed alright flow for warm and hot

Your cold water line is clogged, kinked or the water valve solenoid is not opening all the way. First check the hose, then the screen on the valve for clogs. If none then replace the water valve assembly.

Kenmore front loader washing machine very long wash cycle

You need to replace your cold water, inlet valve.

Unplug the machine from the power source. Disconnect cold water hose. remove the top cover of the machine. You will see the cold inlet valve/solenoide where the hose fits.

Take note of where the wiring goes. You can get the part from your appliance parts outlet.

Refit, and you should be right to go.

Good Luck.

Kenmore washer. At rinse cycle only, water fills very slowly.

For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.

Kenmore elite washer problem

sounds as if you have a drain issue, most common cause of fault is theres something stuck in the pump housing. remove the lower acess panel(3 screws along the bottom of the forn of unit) youll gain acess to the pump housing, remove the large cover to the "button trap" by uncscrewimg the cover, it will be righthin front of you in the center of machine when cover removed, im sure youll find your blockage within there
