There should be screws at the back or maybe it slides off rather than lifts lifts

No problem. What you want to do is this, remove the screws from the back panel first to remove that metal plate protecting the wires. Once off you need to take off the two covers on the sides of the control panel. There is one on each side, just pop them off. Once off you will see there is a screw under there holding the control panel in place. Remove the screws and that will lean back. Next take a flat head screw driver and put it under the lip of the lid on the front of the washer. I mean the lip that is about an inch down from the top on the front. Pry up and the whole lid will pop up. You will see the lid switch there held in by a screw, follow the wire to where it plugs in and unplug it and replace with the new one. Let me know if you have any other questions and if this was helpful to you. Always happy to help and good luck.

GWL11 Top Load Fisher Paykel Washer. Sink Drain next to washer backed up into washer. Sink had been recently backed up by paint sludge, husband used sink to clean brushes. Now paint sludge is in Drum...


Yes it can be destructed and cleaned but will need to be done by someone with knowledge such as a service tech which will probably cost you an arm & a leg, or you can try constant hot washes with good washing powder to flush out sludge residue.Failing that

Kenmore washer Model 110, Serial No. 27602690 won't spin


If wash cycle operates and water drains as should before spin indicates motor spinning. Chances are bad timer If your a real fixer you can remove timer control from panel check and clean all contacts internally making sure none are stuck closed . (Have had 3 110s in my time).not easy but can be done or buy new about 150$ reassemble and check operation.

Rust around my bleach despenser and under the side of top where the despenser is help


Bleach tends to eat thru the paint and cause the rust. What I do on a call for this is to take the bleach cup out, sand the area and paint the area with appliance paint. Here is a link to the paint I use in case you want to do it. The only way to keep this from occurring again is try not to let the bleach get on the painted areas. I know this is hard to do on a washer but you can try to poor some water around the area of the bleach cup. If you should get the paint else where, be sure it is enamel appliance paint.

Can I remove rust from drum with a scrubbie for temporary fix?


I'd use the brush to clean the spots down to bare metal then use something like Rust-Oleum appliance touch up paint (multiple coats) to cover the problem areas.

The Rust-Oleum costs about $4.00 .

In order to get access to the tub, see the following:

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137&osCsid=e49575e5adda6aa133199eb71032bc8e

In order to get the agitators out, you need to remove the "Spanner Nut" and "Drive Block".

Many instructions call for a special spanner wrench to remove the nut. However,

You don't need a special spanner wrench. (About $20 retail)

I've used a short 10" pipe wrench (About $9 also good for cracking walnuts) hooked around one of the tabs on the spanner nut and tapped the handle with a hammer to loosen it.

Also, don't directly hit the drive block with a hammer (it's soft metal). Put a short piece of wood under the drive block and tap it up with a hammer.

You can then lift the drum out and more easily work on it.

A deep rust spot through teh top of the front window frame What is the best and least costly repair for this considerig it is a 1991 model?


I would just use silicone on it, clean it as best as you can and sand it so the silicone will stick you could use a two part epoxy but epoxy gets hard and won't flex causing it to break when the top expands with air being hot and cold. Once the rust starts it's hard to stop, you can buy some Navel Jelly it's a rust inhibitor that will turn rust to a dark color then can be cleaned and painted over and if you want to paint it afterwords you can get the matching paint at Toyota dealer cost about $10.00 for the touch up paint. Hope this helps.

Rust under lid and top of barrel.How do I open up the machine to remove rust and paint?


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (110.#######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.


Also see the following for how to remove the cabinet.

RUST SPOTS


My 10 year old Kenmore (Whirlpool) top load washer is rusting under the top cover. The entire cover from the bleach dispenser all around is rusted under the lid. Periodically, rust dislodges into the tub and stains whites. You would have to treat the rust under the lid. I decided to try, using "Rust-mort" rust treatment on a rag. The rust would all have to be wetted with the rustmort after some scrubbing with a scuff pad. I have not attempted this yet.
I went to OSH and checked lids on new top load washers. The lip on the cheaper models was not properly coated with paint, and I could feel the rough partially exposed metal, which would rust. The more expensive models had a smooth well coated lip on the underside of the cover. Hope this helps.

Hoover Premier 706


I have the same washer and the paint started to flake from the bottom of the bowl. Rust under the baked enamel made it lift. I peeled the loose paint then applied rust converter and a zinc paint. This patch is still ok after 12 months but my wife is complaining about paint flakes and rust on some clothes. In my opinion, the only way to remove the agitator is to undo the nuts retaining the shaft from the inside. I guess I will find patches of rust under the agitator and depending on how big and deep they are will determine if I replace the machine or patch the rust.
