Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
Here is how it works:
You activate the wash cycle and power goes to the motor and water valve.
So either the water valve or the motor but not both will run. Why? The water level switch has 3 wires. A common hot wire and a wire to the water valve and to the motor. The king of the highway the water level switch is the boss dawg. But is has help from mother nature. A rubber tube is placed at the bottom of the tub. It is connected to that water level switch and air tight. As the water rises in the tub the air pressure inside that tube rises.
Engineers have it worked out where X amount of pressure will determine water level in tub. When that air pressure reach's the determined strength BOOM the switch is forced to click. When it does it kills the power to the water valve and shifts the power to the motor babes. And away we go with wash cycle. So what can go wrong? Sand and sediment get into the inlet of that tube. A hole gets in that tube, vibration makes the tube fall away from the switch, and my fav: pinched tubing from reinstalling cabinet incorrectly(been there done that) LOL
To recap: Make sure the tubing to the switch is tight and secure and free of holes or restrictions. Nothing to it. Here is a video which features how to access the water level switch to check all of the above:
