Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

The operation of the washing machine is intermittent. After setting the "Wash Action" and "Wash Cycle", the tank will be filled with water, the shaft will start to spin and after a few seconds it will stop. Operation then would resume randomly after either a few seconds or a few minutes. In some cases, it will not do the final spinning cycle

Sounds like you may have a faulty lid switch.

When I start the washer cycle on any cycle, it does nothing, doesn't fill, doesn't sound like its even moving. Dryer works fine. I checked power and I seen to have power coming out of thermocouple.


when washing machine is started ( after applying the wash settings as to water fill , load size rinse etc) the first action is to turn on the water tap solenoid
from there the water fills to the set level at which time the pressure switch turns of the water solenoid and switches on the motor to start the wash
following that line of procedure , if you do not get water flowing after pressing start, the problem is in the water control solenoid , tap turned off or problem in the program board
Call in a technician after checking the other items first

The washing machine starts ok and fills with water. However, it quickly begins to intermittently cut in and out whilst filling with water. It does this for a while before stopping completely. I've tried...


you did not mention the type of machine but for top loader the most probable cause of your issue is the door /lid switch that is in need of adjustment as most top loaders will fill with the lid open but cycle cant start or continue when the wash thinks the door is open this is a safety feature

WHDSR209DWW on/off button will not engage to spin the cycle selector dial


The cycle selector is not engaged onto the timer shaft. Need to remove the on/off knob by removing the plastic "U" clip. Remove the cycle selctor knob and check that the steel spring clip on the selector is fully seated. Re-install the cycle selector onto the timer shaft aligning the selector key with the with tthe notch on the timer shaft. Re-install the on/off knob.

The cycle selector and on/off combination is a poor design. Users press the on/off knob in and turn clockwise to set the wash cycle. If you're not gentle this action wears the teeth on the timer shaft and the user has to press harder and harder to set the wash cycle. This pressing causes the cycle selector to be pushed off the timer shaft and you can no longer operate the machine.

VERY IMPORTANT:
Stop using the on/off knob to set the wash cycle. Press on the cycle selector to set the wash cycle. Use the on/off knob only for starting or stopping the machine. Don't press or pull too hard on the on/off knob or you will wind up pushing the cycle selector off the timer shaft.

2 problems 1st is the washer continues to fill with water when i put in a new load second is it wont spin


If the water keeps filling without cutting off, you either have a faulty inlet solenoide or your pressure hose and or pressure switch needs checking.

To isolate the acutal problem, start the machine on a new cycle. Change the water level to minimum or low before you start. Let the machine fill up. Keep checking the water intake as it fill up. Once the water level goes over the half way mark in your tank, if the machine starts its wash action then your pressure hose and switch are o.k. as they have signalled to the timer that the water level selected, has been reached.

However if the machine keeps filling up even though the wash action has started, then you have a faulty inlet solenoide/valve. Turn off water at the tap and get the valve replaced.

When my machine goes through the rinse cycle it will only fill with hot water. It fills with warm water during the wash cycle.

Wont spin or agitate


Not sure what you mean? if you have normal wash action then it is agitating in the wash cycle.  Otherwise if it doesn't agitate or spin but does fill with water then your motor or motor control board is bad.

Water only fills the machine in certain parts of cycle


a 90* wash will fill mainly with hot water / a 40* wash will fill mainly with cold water, this is normal action, rinses fill up with cold water only

is this what you are describing, if so thats normal, especially if its doing the job correctly
