Pull of the end caps #14 & 11 on the diagram. Remove the screws and the front panel will flip up. Then there are 2 clips connecting the bac to the cabimet. Snap those out and the the WHOLE front of the machine comes off if you tilt it forward. Go to sears.com and parts to bring up any model for anything and you can kind of see how things go together. Good luck.

No problem. What you want to do is this, remove the screws from the back panel first to remove that metal plate protecting the wires. Once off you need to take off the two covers on the sides of the control panel. There is one on each side, just pop them off. Once off you will see there is a screw under there holding the control panel in place. Remove the screws and that will lean back. Next take a flat head screw driver and put it under the lip of the lid on the front of the washer. I mean the lip that is about an inch down from the top on the front. Pry up and the whole lid will pop up. You will see the lid switch there held in by a screw, follow the wire to where it plugs in and unplug it and replace with the new one. Let me know if you have any other questions and if this was helpful to you. Always happy to help and good luck.

Let me offer you a generic solution for most of the Kenmore washers :-
There are 2 screws that secure the console to the cabinet top. The are located in the front or rear corners, and on a Kenmore, may be hidden behind the end caps. Remove the screws, and tilt the cabinet backwards. Remove the 2 gold clips, and disconnect the wiring harness. Tilt the cabinet forward, and off of the base. The lid switch can now be accessed from inside the cabinet (I sit inside).
Hope i helped you.
