First of all, unplug your washer. You will need to remove the console in order to get to the lid switch. The washer may have release tabs under the console at each front corner. Simply slide a putty knife straight in from the front at each corner and push in while lifting up. You should feel the release tabs push in and the console will pop up. If not equipped with this type of console, you may have a console that has removable end caps. They can be removed by gently prying up on the top of them from the rear on each side. You may have to use a small screwdriver for this. The caps should pop right off. Once removed, you will need to loosen a screw under each cap. Once you have the console loosened, carefully lift it up and lay it back over the rear panel of the washer in its resting position. Be careful not to damage the small plastic hinges that hold it in place. Now you will need to perform the following steps:

1. Under the console you will find the lid switch connector. Unplug the switch from the connector.

2. There will be two brass colored clips. You will need to remove these to remove the machine casing. 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 away from you while holding into the groove 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). Now pull the case from the frame by lifting from the back first.

You do not have to remove it all the way from the frame, just enough to gain access to the switch. All there is to the switch is a couple of screws holding it in and a ground wire. It's a pretty easy repair job. Some models will have the switch located on the right-hand side of the lid rim opening, while other models will have the switch located on the left-hand side near the lid hinge.

Once you've completed your switch installation, make sure you get the case back on the frame correctly by following these steps:

1. While looking down through the lid opening, place the front lip of the machine case UNDER the washer frame and start leaning it back onto the frame. There are four small cleats that must fit into four slots on the case or the washer will vibrate. Make sure the frame is seated properly, lean forward from the front of the washer, grasp both sides of the rear panel and pull towards the case. The rear panel should be seated and flush with the casing before inserting the retaining clips.

2. Insert the brass-colored clips into the slot on the washer rear panel first, and then push straight down into the opening on the top of the washer with some force. If you have the case seated correctly, the clips will snap back in.

3. Make sure you plug the connector from the console back into the lid switch receptacle BEFORE you reassemble the console. This is easy to forget.

I have kenmore 110.26912690 washer. I want to remove and replace the water intake valve and it seems I nearly need to take the whole machine apart. Is this so? can you send me the how to get it out and...


The washer comes apart very easily. Problem is how the control panel is released. Either there is two screws in the front or rear of the control panel once these are removed the panel pulls forward and leans back. On some models there is two clips under the front edges of the panel which have to be depressed with a putty knife. On some models the end caps on the control panel pry off exposing the screws. After leaning back the control panel you must un-plug the lid switch, remove two brass coloured clips holding the case to the rear panel by prying with a screw driver, lean the case forward and remove the case.

I remove the rear panel from my kenmore elite top washer to gain access to the capacitor. While re-installing the panel, I have difficulty re-attaching the rear panel to the two brass-looking clips. ...


These clips don't really engage in the rear panel all by themselves without being held when clipped to the deck. If you have the panel ready to go back on, that is, if the bottom is all square and the panel is on right, then you slip the clip in one of the slots. Make sure the tab is going up on the outside of the panel. Press that tab against the back of the panel so it stays there and horizontal and move the panel forward until the clip is over the rectangular holes on the deck. Then press the clip down in the holes and it should lock. Then do the other side the same way. You can now put the control panel back on. Hope this helps.

I removed the clips that hold the rear panel on and can not figure out how to reinstall them


Hi! They simply push down into the rectangular holes. Place the end with the 90 degree bend back into the slots in the rear panel. The end of the tab faces up on the outside of the panel. Push the rear panel forward against the back of the washer until the rounded ends of the clips get above the rectangular holes on the deck. Push the clip down into the holes. It should snap and lock in. Hope this helps!

I had the problem with the washer not agitating once it filled.


The control panel has a clip at each front corner. Push a putty knife between the case top and the control panel, at the corner and you will feel a spring clip. Push toward the rear of the machine to conpress the clip and it will release. Repeat at other corner. The panel has two connectors on the back at the top corners. The newer machines will allow the panel to roll over the back, carefully. Otherwise there will be two screws that will need to be removed.

Describe your Kenmore 24032 \ 24036 Top Load


Hi, Make sure the washer is solid to the floor. To level the washer, Put your foot against the front panel at the floor and tip the back of the washer toward you. Then set the washer back down and the rear legs should self adjust.
Hopefully this will stop the washer from shaking.

#
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.
