Need to Replace Escutcheon on Control Panel of Kenmore HE3t

I have Kenmore washer HE3t, model 11042922201. I want to replace the cracked escutcheon (cover) of the control panel. The part number is 8181676. How does the part come off? Do I have to remove the entire control panel? The escutcheon has a slot on the bottom which I thought was access to a release latch, but I can't feel a latch in there. Here is a link to the control panel diagram. The escutcheon is labeled as #2.

Thank you for your help!!!

I am trying to uninstall an American Standard 4205.104 Reliant + combi faucet in my kitchen and have been unable to remove the "mounting kit". The faucet is loose. The paperwork that came with...


Hi, TYhe instructions for both models are the same. The 2 different methods of installation/uninstallation in the instructions refer to whether or not an escutcheon was used when installed. The escutcheon is the chrome piece that encircles the faucet and fits on the sink. So, if you have just a bare, chrome tube entering the sink, there is no escutcheon.

I hope this helps. Please click a vote for me if it does.

Thanks,
Handie Andie

Where is the control panel on a Kenmore 70 Series with Model 110 24722300 washing machine


You remove some screws on older models. Newer models simply have spring clips.
Video:themobilian_1345.jpgthemobilian_1346.jpg
Your washer (I looked it up on sears parts) has a timer.
That timer has a knob that screws off and then you remove the dial indication escutcheon and the mounting screws can then be removed to swap out that timer.
themobilian_1347.jpg
This is the connection to the lid switch. You gotta unplug that to
remove the case so you can get to the inner components.
The connection has a green ground wire and 2 wires that go off
to the lidswitch. If the lid is shut and you cannot get an ohms reading
between them 2 then the lidswitch is bad.

With the case off you can start the washer and put it on spin mode and figure out if you have 120 volts to this connection for that lid switch. Placing a jumper between the 2 hot wires will allow you to wash or spin with the case off to hunt for noises and leaks while the machine is in operation.

How do I remove the doorknob from a weiser passage set? Want to paint door and remove passage set. Can't seem to find any slot to remove doorknob.


Door knobs have an escutcheon plate (The round part that touches the door ) that covers the screws attaching the knob together.

To get the knob off first look along the shaft of the knob ( The straight part between where you grab the knob and the escutcheon) there should either be a allen head screw or just a metal button. If its a button push in on it while you pull the knob away from the door or if its a screw just unscrew it either way the knob will come off.

Now look at the edge of the escutcheon where it touches the door. On some models there's a little detent or hole where you can put a small flat head screwdriver in to pop the escutcheon loose from the plate. If there is no detent or hole then it may be screwed on. Just grab the escutcheon and turn to the left.

Once you get the escutcheon off you'll be able to see the screws that attach the door hardware together. Just make sure to pay attention to how you took it apart so it goes back the same way.

Hope that helps !
