Kevin, put a long strong string or long thin wire on old probe before you pull it out. Then you can attach onto new and pull/guide new one into place. If you have unfortunately pulled old one out already, feed a firmer wire through hole in fridge till you see it out the back, tape probe onto wire and fish it back.

Hello there First you will need to remove the two long screws that run down into the cabinet on both
sides of the machine, followed by two smaller screws on the top corners
of the control panel. Now Slide the whole panel towards the front of the
cabinet about 1/4" and rotate it back over the back panel. The wire
assembly will hold it from falling to the floor (watch the tubing that
runs on the top edge). Located the plug that leads to the lid switch
and pull up on the tab and wiggle it out. Push the tabs on the side of
the connector on the cabinet and push it through (watch the metal
edges). You will see two metal clips on the left & right top of the
cabinet. Put a screwdriver in the notch on the front side and pop them
off. Take note on how they are set in the two sides Place hands on
both sides of the cabinet and pull towards you, it will rotate over and
you can access the lid switch. Remove the two screws from the inside of
the lid. Slide the wires & plastic casing off the two small clips
on the rim & replace with the new switch. Be careful not to tighten
too much cause you'll split the plastic mounting. Reverse the process
and your back in business. Hope this helps Best regards mike
i think you will find the belt at the bottom has broken or come of here are the directions to replaced / re fit it
best of luck
Unplug the power cord of the Kenmore 70 series washer from
the electrical outlet before attempting to replace the drive belt.
Remove the end caps from the control console by pushing in on the center
of the caps with your thumbs and pulling the caps forward.
Unfasten the screws on the front of the control console with a
screwdriver and set the screws aside. Flip the control console back so
it is resting against the rear hinges.
Locate the two-pronged electrical plug on the top of the
washer near the back and unfasten it by pulling the plug straight up by
hand. Remove the metal clips on the top of the washer, prying them up
with a screwdriver and setting them out of the way.
Lift the washer cabinet off the base and set it aside. Locate
the motor at the base of the cabinet near the front and unhook the
springs from the motor carriage with a pair of pliers.
Unbolt the motor from the motor carriage, using a socket
wrench to unfasten the bolts. Unplug the electrical wiring harness from
the motor by hand.
Lift the motor off the motor carriage and take the drive belt
off the motor and transmission pulleys, discarding the belt. Place the
new drive belt around the transmission and motor pulleys.
Plug the electrical wiring harness into the motor by hand and
secure the motor to the motor carriage with the bolts. Attach the
springs to the motor carriage by hand.
Place the washer cabinet back over the base and secure it
with the metal clips on the top lid. Connect the two-pronged electrical
plug to the top lid of the washer by hand.
Flip the control console back down over the washer lid and
secure the console with screws in the front. Place the caps back over
the ends of the control console by hand.
Plug the Kenmore 70 series washer into the electricity supply and test wash.
To remove the cabinet safely, the washing machine should be turned off and unplugged. Next take out the control panelby removing the screws. Also take out the spring clips which are situated in the corners and after doing that remove the harness that is connected to the lid switch wiring. Pull the lid and also keep a hand on the cabinet opening that shows itself when you open the lid. Furthermore adjust the cabinets position and then pull the lid and the cabinet opening. It should be removed now.
If it is a top loading washer the cabinet itself is actually removed from the back panel and base frame.
1. Remove two trim caps on either side of the control panel, they are just plastic, and clip in place, either remove by hand, or if they don't come right away you can pop them off with a flat blade screwdriver. 2. Remove two screws (now visible with trim removal) that secure the panel to the cabinet. 3. Panel should now be able to pull up and out, flip it back on it's hinges. 4. Disconnect the wire harness from the lid switch connector, this should be the only place (on most models) where wires connect from the control panel to the cabinet top. 5. Remove the two gold clips that secure the cabinet to the rear panel of washer, they snap into the cabinet, and should pop out easily with a flat screwdriver, this can be difficult to figure out which way to go with the screwdriver, the best I can describe it would be to slide the blade of the screwdriver into the front of the clip (about 2 inches below the cabinet top) and then press the screwdriver back over the top of the clip for leverage. It should pop right out. 6. With the clips removed, you should now be able to simply tip the cabinet towards yourself and pull it right off of the frame. The washers "guts" should all be accessible now. Hope that helps.
