Need to replace lid switch to top load washer

I have discovered that the screw/bolt housing has broken on my lid switch for my top loading Kenmore washer. Thus, it hangs loose and does not operate correctly. As the screw/bolt housing is an intergal part of the lid switch assembly I will need to replace it.

To do this I will need to raise the top of my Kenmore top-load washer. Don't know how...

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question$$&&(*(

How do we get rid of the UL code on our Kenmore Oasis Canyon Capacity Top Load Washer? It stops on the final rinse and spin cycle with nine minutes left.


Thwere is a switch under the lid that will not spin the tub, if the lid is up. This may be bent or broken. Lift lid and shine a flashlight down the slot underneath the protrusion on the lid. you should e a'plank' across the hole. No plank the swithch or the ;Plank" is broken. Most likely the plank, or actuator.needs replaced.

To replace , and or check the actuator, you have to remove the top of the machine. On a Kenmore here are 2 screws at the top back of the washer thaqt hold down 2 metal plates that go up to the back of the control panel. When the screws and plates are removed you can pry up the top of the washer with a stout screwdriver. after removing the top you can un screw the safety inlerlock, that's what I call it, and check for the bent/broken actuator or broken switch. If all looks okay then you need to take an ohm meter and check for continuity through the switch. Place one test lead at each end of the switch, removing and marking the wires on the switch. Press the actuator and you should see less than 5 ohms on the meter, if that is okay, then it gets more involved.

Good day,
There are 3 different style lid switches used on Whirlpool/Kenmore washers. You have to break down the unit to determine which one you use. Any appliance parts house will carry what you need.
Here is an excellent tutorial.

Try tightening the screws on the lid hinges. This should re-engage your lid switch. If it doesn't then you may need to replace the lid switch.. Hope this helps... Bill

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.

Open and close lid, listen for 'clicking' sound. If no 'clicking' sound, replace lid switch. If this washer has a hidden lid switch, check the lid hinge screws and make sure they are screwed in tight.

The lid switch can cause this problem. try pushing the lid toward the rear of the machine and see if it starts running. Also check the screws holding the hinge on the left side to make sure they are tight.
