Washing machine water inlet valve needs repacement. Have pary But do not know how remove washer top to get to the valve assembly. Appears not to open by poping spring loaded fasner.

Try this;

1) Unplug the washer. turn off the water. remove the fill hoses.

2) remove the 2 Phillips screws in the front on either side that retain the console. On some machines, these are hidden under console end caps that must be pried off. On newer models, they’re on the back of the console and you only need to back them out about halfway. On most of the latest models there are no screws, rather there are two clips that you release by inserting a putty knife under the console from the front. apply slight force forward on clips and they'll release as you pull up on consoile lightly.

3) lift the console forward to unhook it from the cabinet top, then up and away from you. it will hang back out of the way if the washer’s away from the wall far enough. unplug the lid switch plug, it'll be the one with 3 wires, usually white, brown and green. then use a large screwdriver to pry up the 2 large clips that hold the cabinet to the washer back panel.
open the tub lid, grab the cabinet and gently pull forward and it’ll unhook from the retainers on the base. Lift the cabinet off and set it aside, you'll need lot's of room, but it is easy to work on.

4) if you now look to the right of the tub at the back wall while facing the unit you'll have access to the valve.

*NOTE, To put the cabinet back on, open the cabinet lid again, now looking down through the lid opening, hook the cabinet front under the washer frame while keeping the cabinet tilted slightly towards you.
Rest your foot at the cabinet base to hold it in place, as you tip it back down onto the base. make sure the 2 notches at the back on the bottom(frame) line up with the notched holes in the cabinet bottom.

Snap the 2 big cabinet clips back into place, If one side’s gapped, it means one of the notched holes is mis aligned. remove the clip on that side, tilt toward you slightly, and push the side down into place. Then re-install the clip.

plug the lid switch in, re-attach the console. and Bob's your uncle.

you should be back in business.

hope that helps,

good luck

Getting off the End Caps

The end caps do not come off on this type of control panel. There is a retaining clip holding it in place at each front corner. You need to insert a putty knife between the top panel and control panel at the left and right front corners. Push the knife straight in from the front and push to release the retaining clips while lifting the panel. Once both clips ar released, the panel will open up. You can view a diagram of the console at Just type in your model number and look under the "Control Panel Parts" heading. The retaining clips are listed as item number 8.

NOTE: Sometimes the clips will come off and fall down inside the washer cabinet. If this happens, you may be able to retrieve the clip by moving the washer and looking underneath. However, if it becomes caught somewhere inside the cabinet, you will need to remove the exterior cabinet to retrieve it. Just follow these steps:

1. Unplug washing machine.

2. Under the console will be two large brass colored clips. Take a large flat blade screwdriver and place it in the groove of the clip on the washer top. With the screwdriver firmly in the groove, push away from you towards the back of the washer. This will release the clips.

3. Disconnect the lid switch connector plug. This is the white colored plug on the washer top under the console.

4. Remove the washer casing. Open the lid of the washer. Using one hand, grip under the front rim of the washer opening. Do not grab the wash tub, just the casing. Tilt the washer case from the back first towards you, slide forward slightly, and then lift up. The entire case comes off exposing the wash tub and components.

To reinstall the washer case, follow these steps:

1. With the lid of the washer open, grasp case under front rim and place it on the washer frame. While looking down through the washer lid opening, make sure the front lip of the case is placed UNDER the washer frame and rocked back onto the frame to ensure that the small cleats on the frame fit into the slotted grooves on the washer case base. If you do not get the case seated correctly it will rattle and vibrate while the washer is in operation.

2. Make sure the back of the washer fits into the washer casing on each side by leaning over the front of the washer and grasping the back panel and pull towards you. Reinsert the brass clips by placing the clips into the slot on the back of the washer first, and then forcefully push then down into the opening on top of the washer.

3. REINSTALL LID SWITCH CONNECTOR. It is easy to forget. If you do not reconnect it, the washer will not work correctly.

4. Reinstall console by aligning the retaining clips with the holes on the top panel and pushing straight down until you hear a "click".

If you have any questions, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

I have a Kenmore 900 series washer. It fills with water but them doesn't run. I see no switch on the lid but if I lift and shut the lid sometimes it will start. This is getting worse.

There is a lid switch which is proabably going bad it is located at the rear of the lid lift the lid up all the way look where the lid touchs the tol at the back in the middle you will see a little tab sticking out which when you close the lib the lid presses down on this tab which makes the switch function. You have to take off the top of washing machine to replace switch. Unplug washer before doing this

Top lid pull up. Look in seam between top and front cover. On each side you will see where top clips to front cover. Put a screwdriver in there and lightly pry up till clip releases. Front cover will now pull up and be removed, so you could get what fell in.

Replacing motor coupling

Removing the cabinet. UNPLUG the washer. There are two screws holding the control panel to the cabinet. Most models the screw are in front but, some models have the screws in back. They are on each end. Now raise the control panel up and let it rest on the hinges. Unplug the lid switch harness and locate the clips on each side (bronze in color) and release them.
Now the cabinet will lift off the frame and you can set it aside.

How to replace a coupler:
Now that the cabinet is out of the way, remove the pump from the motor and set the pump off to the side. Remove the two screws holding the clips on the motor and remove the clips. Unplug the motor harness and on some models you wil need to unplug the capacitor.
Now you will need to replace all three parts to the coupler. I use a ½” socket and a small hammer to force the coupler onto the motor and transmission shafts. Put the rubber part onto the coupler half on the transmission and then line up the post on the motor shaft with the holes on the rubber part and it should go on ok. Put the clips that hold the motor in place and plug in the harnesses.
Put the pump back on and the clips to hold it in place. Set the cabinet back on the frame. Make sure the lip on the front cabinet is under the front rail of the frame. Ease the cabinet on the frame making sure the two rear sides of the cabinet set down on the tabs of the frame.
Put the two clips back on that hold the cabinet and plug the lid switch back in. Fasten the control panel down and you are all set.

I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
