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.

Washer drips after cycles are completed.


yes the water inlet valve is bad! might be easier to remove the base, when you remove the base the back stays connected to the frame. just unplug the machine,remove the end caps on your control panel and remove the screws holding it on, them pull slightly forward and up to fllip the control panel back it has plastic hinges on top,be careful not to break them. then unplug your lid switch, with a screwdriver remove the 2 gold clips that hold the base to the back panel, then open your lid lift from back towards you and the whole base will come off leaving the back panel and frame, should be a whole lot easier to replace the valve, then replace reversing your steps , when you are lifting off the base look at the bottom of machine through your lid and you can see how to put it back on the frame! not to hard!

I have a Kenmore 80 series and it recently started to sound like it always had an unbalanced load. The top part of the tub is loose and the bottom part seems ok. I was told that it may need the agitator...


you have to remove the screws 1 on each side of the control panel ,then flip the panel up and remove the clips should be 1 on each side,then you can lift off the whole cabinet at 1 time leaving just the tub and backing,

Removing front panel from kenmore elite HE-3 front load washer?


If you've removed the screws and the panel sticks, tapping on each side will knock it loose. The panel should drop down, then off. You can also try propping the two front feet of the washer up slightly for better access. A 2x4 works real well. This will allow more room for the panel to drop and gives better access to the screws. The washer is very heavy, so you may need some assistance to lift the front. Either lift from the bottom, or place your hands on the front facing of the cabinet to push the washer back. DO NOT push on the door or control panel.

If you still need assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

REMOVE THE 2 SCREWS ON TOP DOWN AT THE BASE OF THE CONTROL PANEL, SLIDE IT FORWARD A BIT AND LIFT IT UP IT IS HINGED IN THE REAR. NOW REMOVE THE TWO BRASS LOOKING CLIPS FROM THE TOP AND REMEMBER HOW THEY GO BACK UNDO THE LID SWITCH CONNECTOR(IT LOOKS LIKE IT GOES THROUGH THE TOP DOWN INSIDE). NOW GRASP THE CABINET AND PULL TOWARD YOU TILL THE BOTTOM DISENGAGES FROM THE WASHER BASE.NOW YOU CAN CHANGE THE LID SWITCH
