Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
When the sicle gets to the drainning part it just stop and then noting, it just dont drain.
It sounds like you could have a lid switch malfunction. This is a common occurence when the switch wears out. The switch may be loose or not making good contact. As you open and close the lid, you should hear a "clicking" sound as the lid switch is activated. If you do not hear the switch, check to make sure the lid strike (if equipped) is still intact. This is a small plastic piece mounted on the lid of some washers that pushes down on the switch through a slot on the wash tub opening on the right hand side. If this piece breaks off, it will give the same symptoms of a broken lid switch. Next, check the two mounting screws on the right side of the wash tub opening to make sure they are tight. These are the mounting screws for the lid switch. Sometimes they come loose and the switch does not make proper contact. If you attempt all these preliminaries, and the switch still does not seem to be working properly, replace it.
Replacement parts can be found at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number (located along the wash tub opening under the lid) and the lid switch will be located under the "Top and Cabinet" heading. The lid strike (if equipped) is listed under this heading as well. You may also check repairclinic.com. They carry the SAME parts and sometimes offer a better price.

This is a simple and inexpensive repair if you wish to accomplish this on your own. Let me know if you require addtional assistance. I hope this helps you.
PS You do not have to drain the wash tub to replace the lid switch. With the switch repaired, the washer will drain on its own.
