Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
Kenmore does not complete rinse cycle. Stops in the middle of the cycle and shuts off. Does not get to spin cycle. Help.
It sounds like you have a bad lid switch. If you open and close the lid, you should hear a distinctive "clicking" sound as the lid switch is activated when the lid closes. If you hear no sound, you need to check the following:
Some washers have the lid switch under the right-hand side of the wash tub opening and is activated through a small slot on the wash tub casing rim by a small plastic piece on the lid called a lid strike. If this is the type you have, make sure the lid strike is still intact or the switch will not activate. Check the two mounting screws next to the slot and make sure they are present and tight. These are the mounting screws that hold the lid switch in place. If they come loose it can prevent the switch from activating.
Newer models have the lid switch mounted under the washer casing in the left-hand rear adjacent to the left washer lid hinge. The switch is activated by a rod on the lid hinge. Sometimes a simple adjustment of this rod can correct contact problems.
No matter what configuration you have, if you make all these preliminary checks and the switch still does not work, replace it. The following link will give you step-by-step instructions on how to accomplish this:
If you require further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
PS If you provide me with your COMPLETE model number (located under the washer lid along the tub rim) I can also assist you with locating parts.
