I just replaced the water valve and now I can't get the cabinet to sit on the base correctly. Does the side flanges of the cabinet fit behind the back panel or inside?

What I do is open the lid. I grab the case and look down inside making sure I get the case under the base and on the tabs. Then I tip the case back and make sure I don't pinch the water level fill switch tubing. The back of the washer has plastic spacers on it that allow for a snug fit to the cabinet. The sides fit neatly into those clips with a bit of patience. If you have the front of the base on then the rest is a piece of cake. Snap down the S-clips and reconnect the lidswitch.

HOW DOES THE CABINET GO BACK ON A SEARS KENMORE 110.20712990


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-11020712990/0582/0153200?pathTaken=

Then see the following for how to remove and replace the cabinet:

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=131&osCsid=5cac791c099cfeceeefa8f469d527d82

Basically, the cabinet sits in slots in the base unit of the washer. Simply align the tabs on the cabinet with the slots and tilt the cabinet back.

Check to make sure that the back panel fits inside the cabinet.

Kenmore model 110 top load washer water drips out slowly, takes a long time to fill tank


Either the inlet hose screens or the water inlet valve screens or the the water inlet valves not opening completely. Check the screens and the water flow from the inlet hoses by removing them from the water inlet valves. The water valves are not opening properly and needs replacing if the screens are clear and the water flow from the inlet hoses are good.

Remove the cabinet to access and replace the water inlet valve assembly. Unplug the machine from the electrical supply then release the console from the top of the cabinet depending on the model of your machine then pull forward and up on the console and lay it back on the hinges.

Disconnect the lid switch harness connector by pressing on the tab located in the middle and pulling it up.

The cabinet is attached to the rear of the washer by two brass-colored retaining clips. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the turned-up edge of the clip, located on both sides, and then pry back to release the clip from the slot in the cabinet.

Open and hold the lid while grabbing the cabinet front opening then tilt the top of the cabinet toward you by pulling the cabinet away from the base. This releases the front and back slots of the cabinet from the tabs in the front and back of the base.

Using the side of your leg and/or body as a support for the front of the cabinet, carefully lift up the cabinet and set it aside. You can now remove the water inlet valve assembly and install the new one then reassembly the machine.

Bring the cabinet to the front of the washer then slide the front bottom rail of the cabinet under the rail at the base of the machine then lay down the cabinet into position. Make sure the slots in the cabinet sit into the tabs at the base of machine.

Reconnect the lid switch harness then push the retaining clips back down into position to secure the cabinet to the rear of the machine. Reinstall and secure the console to complete the repair.

I have a Kenmore 70 series 28741


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.82874120+

Go to the section on Top and Cabinet and you should see how the switch mounts to the cabinet.

You'll have to remove the cabinet first.

Please see GURU JSROCK516 Description of how to remove cabinet and access the transmission. http://www.fixya.com/support/r699497-replacing_gearcase

After you've removed the cabinet, the rest should be relatively easy.

Kenmore 70 series, 110 washer leaks water when


Hi, You will need to change the inlet mixer valve. It is sticking open just enough to allow water to drip through it. This should be chandes asap so that it doesn't get bad enough to over flow the washer.
Here are directions on how to remove the cabinet so you can get to the inlet valve.
Removing the cabinet. UNPLUG the washer. There are two screws holding the control panel to the cabinet. Most models the screw are in front but, some models have the screws in back. They are on each end. Now raise the control panel up and let it rest on the hinges. Unplug the lid switch harness and locate the clips on each side (bronze in color) and release them.
Now the cabinet will lift off the frame and you can set it aside.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Kenmore Series 70 washing machine whines and low flow on cold H2O


Yeah you need to replace the water valve. To get to it you need to remove the cabinet on the newer direct drive models, If yours has a rear access panel then you simply pop the top to get to the valve after removing the hoses. Fairly simple job. Here is a good website for direct drive coupling replacement . It shows you how to open the cabinet. http://repair2000.com/coupling.html
GVI 151 is the generic part that fix all belt drive models. Direct drive will need its own little water valve buy hay it ain't but 20 bucks.
For a better explanation post you model number in the comment box and I will research it further for you amigo.

Hello Friend, Your problem is easily solved. You need to replace the water inlet valve. It's easy to replace the water inlet valve on your machine. First, remove the two screws that hold control panel in place and tilt back exposing the two metal clips that hold the cabinet in place. You will see some wires plugged into the cabinet, just unplug them. There are two clips, one on each side. Just pop these clips off and lift cabinet slightly from back and tilt forward. At this point you will be able to completely remove the cabinet. Once you have cabinet removed just set it aside. Now, you will be able to gain access to the water inlet valve. Simply remove the hose and wires from valve and replace with new one. Re-install the cabinet, control panel etc. This should solve your problem. Happy to help, Tim.

Most likely you need to replace the lid switch.
Open the lid and make sure the actuator that pushes the switch is still attached to the lid. Use a pen or screwdriver to depress the switch through the hole in the top of the cabinet, you should hear a click as the switch closes. I usually find that the switch has actually broken off from the cabinet and is hanging loose in the machine.
To replace the switch
Remove the screws that hold the console to the cabinet. Flip the console up and back like opening a car hood. unplug the wire connector for the lid switch. Pop out the two clips that hold the cabinet to the rear panel of the washer. The cabinet will tilt forward and slide off the machine base. You can now replace the switch from inside the cabinet.
If you need further help, please post the complete model number from the washer so I can see exactly how your washer is set up.

If it is draining the water then the motor is running. ou most likely have a broken motor coupler between the motor and gearcase.

Remove the two screws that hold the console to the cabinet and flip the console back.
Remove the two clips that hold the cabinet to the rear panel of the washer and unplug the lid switch harness. The cabinet will tilt forward and slide off.
Remove the clips holding the water pump and move it to the side.
Unplug the wires from the motor and remove the clips holding it.
You will see the motor coupler.
Make sure you can turn the gearcase shaft with a pair of pliers so it is not locked up.
Post back with the complete model number from the washer if you need further help.
Thanks, Mike

You most likely have a broken coupler between the motor and gearcase.
You can buy the part for about $10 or have someone come out and replace it for about $150-200.
If you will post the complete model number from the the washer so I can see which style cabinet you have, I will try to walk you through the repair. It isn't very complicated if you are handy with home repairs.
With the age of the machine it probably just needs a coupler, but it could also have a problem in the transmission or basket drive that has caused the failure.
