There should be 2 screws either in the back of the console in each corner or in some you need to remove the sides of the console and they will be in front. after removing pull console towards the front of washer that should release it to flip it back. since u released the 2 clips the whole body should tilt forward and pull out. hope this helps

My washer, kenmore 90 series can agitate and complete washing cycle but will not drain and spine.


Sounds like your lid switch is broken. This is located under the top of the washer and is activated by a tab that hangs off the side of the lid.
Accessing this part requires you to flip up the control panel by removing two phillips head screws in either the front bottom corners (may be behind the endcap covers), or rear bottom corners, pull panel forward and lift to disengage the tabs at the bottom. Flip the panel upwards and it will swing back out of the way.
Next you will see one wire connector going into the top of the machine, this is actually your lid switch connector, disconnect it. Now using a flat screwdriver pry the front of the two brass clips towards the rear of the washer (put tip of screwdriver into front most part of clip and press handle of screwdriver towards rear of machine). The clips should pop off the top pretty easily.
Now you can open the lid and place a hand on the front of the opening and pull the cabinet forward. The entire front and side wrapper will come off the base platform and you can set it on the floor to gain access to the lid switch that is screwed to the underside.
Good luck to you on this!

Trying to replace the lid switch


Did you unplug from the wall? Safety first.

You should be able to slide the wires off the terminals. Or you may have one that has a molded pulg that has a safety retainer clip that has to be depressed to unplug it.

Same with the switch, it should have a retaining clip that must be depressed to remove it. OR it has a screw holding the assembly on.

Removing the top of a Kenmore Elite Oasis Washer to replace hose


#
1

Disconnect your Kenmore Oasis washing machine from its power source. Make sure that your washer is unplugged before beginning to disassemble it.
#
2

Remove the screws that hold the control console to the top of your Oasis washer. In some Kenmore Oasis models, the two screws may be covered by plastic end caps. After removing the screws, set them aside until you are ready to replace them.
#
3

Flip the console up, back and out of the way.
4

Locate the cabinet clips on the top of your Kenmore Oasis washer. These clips are located toward the back of the washer top and would be hidden by the console if it were not currently flipped up.
#
5

Slide your screwdriver underneath the metal cabinet clips. Wiggle the screwdriver back and forth to gently pry the cabinet clips free.
#
6

Disconnect the group of colored wires that plug into the top of the washer from the control console. These wires control the lid switch on your Kenmore washing machine. To disconnect, grasp the white plastic clip and pull gently.
#
7

Remove the washing machine cabinet. Tilt the cabinet towards you, and then lift the entire cabinet up and off of its platform.

Kenmore washer 24642300


The lid switch has failed. To replace lid switch;
REMOVE POWER, lift the console by removing the trim on either side. Grasp the top of the trim and pull forward to expose a screw. Remove both screws and lift console.

1. You will find a lid switch connector (white in color). Unplug the switch from the connector.

2. There will be two brass colored clips. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver down and away from you and the clip will release.

3. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Tilt and slide cabinet forward to remove.

The lid switch can now be accessed and replaced.

If you need further assistance, let me know

Need to change the lid switch on a kenmore series 90 top load washer


To access the lid switch, REMOVE POWER, lift the console by one of three ways.
1. Look in the back of the console, in each corner there will be a screw, unscrew until the console can be pushed forward.
2. The trim on either side can be pried off from the top, grasp and pull forward to expose to expose a screw.
3. insert a putty knife under each corner, push to release a latch. With console lifted:

1. You will find a lid switch connector (white in color). Unplug the switch from the connector.

2. There will be two brass colored clips. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver down and away from you and the clip will release.

3. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Tilt and slide cabinet forward to remove.

Removing cabinet of kenmore elite washing machine


It would help if I had your model number, but I'm assuming you have a Kenmore top loader that has the fill hoses attached under the left rear of the washer casing. With the brass clips removed, you should be able to move the cabinet off the frame slightly to give you enough room to reach your hand under the wash tub rim and disconnect the hoses. You may need a set of pliers to remove the hose clamps. I hope this helps you.

If you are having difficulty, please post back and let me know.

Was there a reason why you were removing the cabinet? Do you need further assistance?

Water valve replacement


DON'T OPEN THE BACK!!!! This is done from the front. You must remove the outer cabinet first. UNPLUG YOU WASHER BEFORE CONTINUING! 1.) Remove the 2 phillips screws on either side of the control panel and rotate the panel up and out of the way. 2.) There are 2 brass colored clips under the panel. One on either side. Poke your screwdriver into the slot (the tip of your screwdriver will be facing down) and pry backwards toward the wall to remove these. 3.) Disconnect the white electrical connector that's plugged into the top of the cabinet. 4.) Now tilt the entire cabinet toward you. Bring it to a 45 degree angle... this will release the clips. Then lift and pull it off of there and set it aside. You now have access to the water valve.
