Question about Kenmore 24722 Top Load Washer
Sounds like your motor is weak, and starting to seize up. Once you give it a bit of momentum, it's still strong enough to keep going, but every time it stops it has problems getting over that initial friction of starting. I expect if you do nothing, it won't be too long until the motor goes out entirely. If you'd like to replace the motor, it's most likely one of the three listed here: http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/washer-whpl.shtml#motors I couldn't find specifics for your model, but if you pull the motor out I'm sure you can visually match it to one of those. However, if it were me I'd keep manually starting it until the motor died entirely, and then decide whether to repair or replace the washer. May as well get as much as you can out of what you have.
