You can replace the switch, it appears, without lifting the lid. I've ordered the repair manual (LIT4314044) but I can feel the connector and wires. It appears that the lid switch can be replaced without taking anything apart. There does appear to be a screw on the back that holds the ground in place.

Just underneath the topcover approx. 2-4 inches from each outside edge there is a small clip. Push in on the clip one at a time while pulling up on the top. It will release.

SOURCE: lid switch assembly

go to www.searspartsdirect.com for a picture of this units lid switch.it doesnt show it very well, but it will give you an idea of how it goes back together.
what you need to do is put the lever around the switch first, then put the plastic box on the switch and arm. then carefully hold the assembly together and try to get it under the top and put the 2 screws back into the housing holes.
it sounds simple but i have done this before and its not easy. you just need to be careful to get the screws into the mounts correctly or it wont hold together to allow the switch to activate when the lid is closed.
by the way was there a reason you took the switch off??
maybe because it wont spin?
by the way this unit is not 30 years old, maybe 20 at the most.
the drive couplings are a weak spot for these and you may have a broken one. it wont spin or agitate but will drain if this is broken.

SOURCE: How do I remove the top of a Kenmore 110-24422300

This advice is for just about all Kenmore and Whirlpool model TOP LOADING washing machines. This is an easy repair that anyone with a little know-how and determination can perform.

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.


If you have questions,, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: replace lid switch assembly on

Most whirlpools open this way:

The control panel must be detatched- it is held on with small spring clips under the left and right side of the control panel, and you can release them by pressing in on them with a putty knife -OR- it is held on with screws at the back of the base, which when remove will allow you to move the base and release the hooks from their slots.

Then you need to unplug the lid switch, and then release the two brass colored "funny s shaped spring hooks" that hold the cabinet to the back panel. Then you tilt the cabinet back (or actually forward-- away from the back panel) and pull it off of the hooks on the base.

Kenmore series 80 will fill but won't agitate or spin


Hi

First make sure that nothing is blocking the drain pump assembly located inside the bottom of the unit, after this test the lid switch assembly, you jump it to test it. If the lid switch is also fine then the control board should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

My washer works but it will not work in the spin cycle


Every washing machine, top or front loader, has a safety feature that disables the spin functions and that is the lid switch/lock for top loaders and door switch/lock assembly for front loaders. This is to prevent injury when the lid/door is opened during a high speed spin. Check lid/door switch harness and connections. Replace lid/door switch assembly if no issue found with the harness and connections.

My kenmore washer 80 series model 110.23832100 won't spin. I think that is the switch lid. How can i replace it


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.23832100


The Kenmore / Whirlpool top load uses a reversing motor to initiate the pump for draining and the transmission to spin.

If you cannot hear the motor trying to turn the pump, (but the washer will agitate) the problem points to the Timer, or the Lid Switch.

Try to bypass the Lid Switch by removing the Console and jumping the two outermost pins on the switch.

Following is an illustrated guide for how to access the console.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=131&osCsid=5f1af8349a77f9dc5632b02160e0d6c6

This is the Whirlpool PDF on installation and maintenance of direct drive washers. See the section on how to bypass the lid switch and on the transmission.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

If the washer will drain but not spin the problem points to the Neutral Drain Assembly in the transmission.

The Whirlpool PDF has a very good explanation of how the assembly works.

Ours had the same problem, no draining or spinning unless the washer was stopped and restarted.

We replaced the neutral Drain Assembly for about $15 vs. $170 for a transmission.

If the Lid Switch is OK, please re-post a request for how to replace the neutral assembly.
