It can but you are making more work than you need, take it apart and do it the right way. remove the cabinet and go from there. trust me I have tried and will never do it again.

I HAVE A KENMORE 90 SERIES WASHER JUST REPLACED


it mounts to the metal where the lid closes, not on the drum... there's usually two holes where the screws go through... and a third hole where the actuator(plastic post) on the lid goes through to activate the lid switch...

Kenmore series 90 washing machine will not spin or drain


I hate to say it, but your friend is probably wrong on this one. A bad pump would not affect a washer's ability to spin. It would only affect the drain function. If the washer fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle and drain, this is commonly caused by a lid switch malfunction. 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. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

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

If the switch requires replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. Just use your model number as your search criteria. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Why My Kenmore 70 Series Washer Won't Drain Or Spin?


You need to replace the lid switch. This is located under the case. you have to take the case off to change this part. This is done by taking the 2 screws out of the front of the control panel. Then flip the panel back and remove the 2 brass clips that hold on the case. Then you can remove the whole washer case to get acces to the lid switch. This is a very common problem and an easy problem to fix.

My washing machine water wont drain,it is a kenmore 90 series.


  • first thing to check is the lid switch. 
  • if the lid switch is bad it will fill up, then agitate then sit there full of water.
