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.

How do I acces the lid switch on my kenmore washer


The following link explains step-by-step how to access and/or replace the lid switch on a Kenmore top loader:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

Most lid switches are located under the right hand side of the top panel. Some, are located adjacent to either lid hinge. In any case, you still need to remove the washer exterior case to access it. The switch is held in place with a couple of mounting screws with a ground wire attached. This is a very simple repair, but if you experience any difficutlies please let me know. I hop this helps you.

Replace lid switch on a Kenmore washer


Sometimes on these you need to open the lid, remove the screws there first, then take the screws off the back. Try that.

My washer stops in the middle of the cycle, it washes but stops before draining the water to go into the spin rinse cycle. Kenmore nodle 110 serial # ce1402638 Please asvise.


This problem is commonly attributed to a lid switch malfunction. I will need a more accurate model number to confirm (located under the washer lid along the tub rim). "110" is only the beginning prefix of the model number, which identifies the manufacturer. I will need the remaining numbers to determine how the washer is configured.

The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug.

A replacement lid switch can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, repairclinic.com or appliancepartspros.com. All three sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all three for the best price. For instructions on how to replace a lid switch, you can refer to my profile and look under my "Tips and Tricks" for links for Replacing a Lid Switch. If you still need assistance, please contact me and let me know. PS If the lid switch IS defective and you need instructions on how to by-pass it in order to drain the wash tub, let me know. In addition, if my diagnosis is not correct, please post back and elaborate a bit more so I can assist you further.

My Kenmore 80 series washer won't agitate but it will spin. I have replaced a coupler before, but this problem seems different. Any help?

If your washer is not configured in this manner, please post back with your COMPLETE model number (located along the tub rim under the lid) so I can confirm how your washer IS configured.

We need to replace the switch that allows the spin cycle to work with the lid down. The back is one solid piece we dont know how to get to the timer to plug in the new switch we bought


What you are talking about is called the "lid switch". The following link explains how to replace one on a Kenmore top loader:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

Make sure you check to see if the switch is simply loose. There should be some mounting screws holding it in place. In addition, there is usually a small plastic piece mounted on the washer lid on most Kenmores that activate the switch when the lid is closed. This is called a "lid strike". If the mounting screws are loose, or if the lid strike is broken or missing, the washer will exhibit the same symptoms as having a broken lid switch. For replacement parts, refer to searspartdirect.com and type in your complete model number (located along the washer lid opening). The parts you need will be listed under the "Top and Cabinet" heading.

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

Kenmore Top Load washer


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.
