Pins under washing machine appear to have clips but none present

We are working on a sears washing machine to replace a part. Model Number 110.28892790. After we replaced the part we noticed three pins that appear to support the carrage were misaligned. They look like the should have clips but none were there. How critical are these three pins and do they indeed have a clip?

Not critical at all, merely shipping pins, that "fall" into plastic containers after installation, the are of no concern

How do i change a lid switch on a kenmore top load washing mach

(For most)... Unplug machine at power (most important for any repair attempts).. Use a putty knife at about 2 inches from the front top corners where the top is attached to find the clips that hold the top to the rest of the machine. Once the clips are found, use the putty knife to push the the clips in while lifting the top up. The back of the top of the machine is held in place with clips that allow the top to be lifted far enough to set against wall behind machine without disturbing electronics. From this point, you should be able to see the switch and the manner in which it is clipped in. You will need your model number to order another. It is likely a Whirlpool or Frigidaire machine. Sears doesnt actually make anything. There may also be a part number on the part itself. Check eBay for replacement if you can wait for shipping.

Go to the link below and enter your model number in the search window there. Sears has thousands of parts lists and line drawing illustrations that can aid in finding the reset button if present or any other part you may want to locate or replace.

BTW, it does not have to be a Kenmore or Sears-branded appliance. They have many others as well.

Kenmore 110.26492502 top load washing machine is leaking oil (yellowish with black). any chance, as a DIY-er,i can solve this? its turning 5 years old already... thanks! rex

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

The model number you provided doesn't appear on the Sears site. Are you sure it's the right number??

Enter your model number (110.#######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Pulling the cabinet, pump, motor and gearcase are relatively easy. Getting the 8 bolts off of the gearcase and removing the top can get a bit messy as the gearcase holds 15 Oz. of gear oil. (Easily replaced with non-detergent gear oil from a local auto parts shop.

This is a Whirlpool / kenmore Serviced Manual PDF for top load, direct drive washers:$FILE/L-55.pdf

It also has a troubleshooting guide.

See the Following Whirlpool parts list for alternatives to the Sears part numbers.

In order to get the transmission out, you have to remove the cabinet, the fabric dispenser and both agitators. The top agitator uses a plastic 1/2" drive bolt (a 1/2" socket extension works well).

You don't have to remove the drum. See the following:

Lay the machine down (after disconnectYing power and hoses, remove the pump (two clips), the motor (two screws hold two clips on the motor), lift and set the motor aside.

Remove two 1/2 inch bolts for the motor mounting plate and three 1/2 inch bolts for the transmission.

Pull the transmission, remove the clutch (there is a spring clip that holds the clutch on the main agitator shaft), and remove the 8 screws carefully the transmission holds 15Oz of 80-90 weight gear oil.

You should be able to either re-seat the cover or make a thin gasket using automotive "liquid gasket seal" products.

Its leaking water under the bottom

If you don't have simply a bad hose, it's likely that the leak is from the pump that empties the tub.
This washer is made by Whirlpool and it is probably present on the Sears Parts website as an illustration which you can use to determine in advance how tough it might be to replace. Sears can supply parts for thousands of non-Sears appliances but if you find the pump is leaking, check your area for Johnstone Supply who appeals to trades people but refuses no one and their prices are often 40-60% cheaper than a dealer's.
Sears Parts Dept.
Enter your model number on that page to search.
Unfortunately, that pump is one of the really cheap parts one finds in many machines and a frequent failure.

How do you get the top off a Kenmore Model # 22722? It looks like each corner is screwed down? I tried poping it open by inserting flathead screwdriver under lip on top left and right of front of machine,...

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

Enter your model number (###.########) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Go to the section on the Sears site for the Control Panel and y9ou should see how the console is attached.

Also see the following :

Most Kenmore Top Load washers have endcaps on each side that simply snap off allowing access to a phillips head screw. Remove the screws, pull the console slightly forward and then up.

On sone washers, there are no removable endcaps. These washers use a clip under the ends of the console.

If you un-plug the washer and slip a thin putty knife between the cabinet and control panel where the clip is, the clip should release allowing you to tilt the control panel back.

Stop washing fl appears on screen

This is a common problem and is related to the control board. Depending on the serial number of your unit you may be eligible for a replacement of the board under a recall program. Call Whirlpool and give them the model and serial number to see if your unit qualifies. I have a Sears Oasis, made by Whirlpool, that had the same problem and they sent the part and a technician to install it for free.

Whirlpool / Kenmore washers come with shipping pins designed to keep the tub from moving during shipping.

When the washer is installed, the pins are broken off and usually fall into plastic containers.

It's possible that the pins that you see are these.

In addition,

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

If what fell out aren't the shipping pins, the diagrams on the Sears site may help you determine what they are.

Is there a spin clutch adjustment on a kenmore older model washing machine

This assumes that your washer is a top loading unit.

There isn't a clutch adjustment on Kenmore / Whirlpool top loader, direct drive washers.

Sears does have a clutch rebuild kit however.

See the Sears site:

and enter your model number.

A list of sub-components should come up.

Click on the motor and clutch link and you should see parts for a complete clutch and the band and lining kit.

Replacing either requires removing the cabinet, agitators, pump, motor and transmission.

Then removing the clip that holds the clutch to the top of the transmission and either replacing the entire clutch or just the band and lining.
