Jenlyn. The whole cabinet will lift off. Remove the two screws behind each end of the top consol. Pull forward and lift up. Remove the snap springs and lid switch harness and pull the cabinet forward and off...see the back.

Waher fill run but thats all don,t spin don,t wash dont risen

The most common cause for this problem is a faulty lid switch! this the switch that gets depressed by the tang on the machine lid. If the switch is problematic, or faulty, the washer will only fill and that is it! The timer will not advance or the motor run. The switch can be checked with an ohmmeter, and they are fairly simple to replace. If any further information regarding machine disassembly and switch replacement is needed, feel free to post here again.

Hope this gives you a starting point.

Fills with water then won't go to the wash cycle until you slam the lid several times

It sounds like the lid switch is faulty. The washer has a lid switch that checks to see if the lid is open, if lid is open the washer will not start the wash cycle. Check/replace the lid switch and you should be back in business.

I have a top load Kenmore Elite Washing machine that runs for 5 seconds then stops for several minutes. This pattern repeats. It just started yesterday. What is wrong with it? I have unplugged and...

Sounds like the timer is faulty. Or you lid switch is out of wack. Try leaving leaving lid open and placing a screwdriver in switch located where the lid clip comes down into washer. If this works the switch will need replaced. Timer is another story as you will have to remove top panel and replace timer if the lid switch is not the cause

Washer will work on rinse, then stops, won't drain or spin.

Kenmore top load washer- have to bang lid several

This is most certainly caused by a faulty micro switch on the lid. Have the switch checked out and replaced if need be.
