Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer

Open Question

I have a Kenmore Heavy Duty 70 series top loading washer -spin cycle got out of balance and the top of tub started banging around, tried another small load of clothes and the tub during spin cycle bangs around and has to be shut off. Removed the top, found plastic like a cylinder cup and a nail about 2"long with a hole at the tip end on the floor-noted two other plastic cylinders in place and same nails have fallen into the bottom of these cylinders. Do I just need to put a cotter pin in each of these? Will that solve the problem? Thanks-

Sounds to me like you have a worn drive block and possibly a bad spin tube. The drive block can be accessed by removing the agitator first. Next you will need to remove the spanner nut. Now you can remove the basket. Attached you will see the picture of the drive block, I hope if it downloads. The spin tube locks into this drive block with two tabs that fit in respective grooves in the block. If the tabs are worn off the spin tube, that will have to be replaced as well. Good luck,

SOURCE: Kenmore Model 80 110-9258311 Spin balance issue

On the bottom of the basket there are springs. These springs keep the basket from slamming all over the place when in spin and agitating. Check that these springs haven't fallen off or come loose. I am guessing that this is all that happened. During moves this just happens sometimes and it's easy to fix. Hopefully you didn't loose any springs along the way, but if you did just call your local appliance repair shop and get some new ones. Kenmore parts are easy to come buy. If the springs look good check and see that they aren't real easy to expand. They should be real stiff. If they are easy to expand replace them. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful. Good luck.

SOURCE: My Maytag goes out of balance and bangs loudly

This is usually due to the floor not being perfectly level, and as a consequence the washing machine not standing firmly on all 4 supports.
There should be at least 2 adjustable feet under the machine, try to make it stand as level as possible, with uniform load on all four.
If you have a bubble level it may help you establish, if there's an obvious slope on your floor and adjust the machine so that it's well levelled.
Good luck!

Timer stops at the end of wash cycle, won't began drain cycle


if it fills and agitates but stops at the drain/spin portion, it sounds like you have a problem with the lid switch. if it thinks the lid is opne, it will not drain or spin.

Unstable tub


There are springs inside the unit that stablize the tub during spin. If the springs are not attached correctly the tub will be off balance. Sometimes the Balance Ring loses it's fluid due to a crack or leak and the washer will spin off balance. THis requires a service tech to dissemble the machine.

Kenmore washer series 70 shakes wildly during spin during cycle


I have the same kenmore and have experience this before. It is unbalanced. Get a spirit level to check for balance. To rebalance, empty the washer (so it's not heavy), lean over the washer and grab the back, tilt it forward and the auto balancing legs should reposition themselves. Re-check for balance using the spirit level. If still out, adjust the front feet of the washer by screwing the legs up or down (using a wrench). This will cure the problem (unless you have a very unbalanced load of towels for instance). Good luck
