Re: How do I disconnect the console from the washer body,

Using a putty knife, place under the corner of the console from the front. Pushing straight in, you should feel a retaining clip. Push in to release, while lifting at the same time. The console should pop off. I hope this helps you.

How to remove washer lid to replace lid lock

Remove power to the unit.
Locate the console and remove two phillips head screws. Most
models have them in the front, bottom of the console. In some of the newer models they are located in the back, bottom of the console. Some washers require you to remove two end caps on the console to access the screws.
After you remove the two screws, slide the console slightly forward and then up. The console will then hinge to the back of the washer.
With the console now hinged back, locate the lid switch harness.
Disconnect the harness and check for resistance between the 2 grey wires (outside) on the lid switch connector connected to top of washer. With the lid down the circuit should read no resistance. If the circuit is open(infinite resistance) then the switch needs to be replaced. You can also use a insulated jumper on the lid switch harness to determine if its the switch.
To replace the lid switch you will now have to remove the cabinet. Use a flat head screwdriver to remove the two clips holding the back of the washer to the outer shell of the washer.
Disconnect the lid switch harness(If not still disconnected).

You can now pull the outer shell away from the washer. Do this by
grasping the outer shell (I open the lid and grab it there.) and tilt the shell forward (toward you) and out. The shell is now removed and you can see the tub. Be careful not to bend the outside walls of the shell when removing and setting aside. This will help greatly when reinstalling the shell. Remove the 2 screws attaching switch to cabinet. Remove the screw connecting the ground on the cabinet. Use a flat blade screwdriver to push tabs on lid switch connector block to remove. Finally remove the whole harness from the 2 remaining retainer clips under the cabinet. Install new lid switch harness assembly and reassemble washer.

How do I remove the top of the washer to replace the lid switch on a 110 23832100?

Disconnect power then release the console from the top of the cabinet. Pull or pry off the end caps then remove the screw that secures the console to the cabinet top. Once the screws are removed, pull forward and up on the console and lay it back on the hinges.



Disconnect the lid switch harness connector by pressing on the tab located in the middle and pulling it up.

The cabinet is attached to the rear of the washer by two brass-colored retaining clips. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the turned-up edge of the clip, located on both sides, and then pry back to release the clip from the slot in the cabinet.

Open and hold the lid while grabbing the cabinet front opening then tilt the top of the cabinet toward you by pulling the cabinet away from the base. This releases the front and back slots of the cabinet from the tabs in the front and back of the base.

Using the side of your leg and/or body as a support for the front of the cabinet, carefully lift up the cabinet and lay the front on a cushioned floor to access the lid switch.


Remove the lid switch ground and mounting screws then release the wire harness from the metal retainers. Pull the lid switch connector out and install the new lid switch in reverse order of the removal steps.

Bring the cabinet to the front of the washer then slide the front bottom rail of the cabinet under the rail at the base of the machine then lay down the cabinet into position. Make sure the slots in the cabinet sit into the tabs at the base of machine.

Reconnect the lid switch harness then push the retaining clips back down into position to secure the cabinet to the rear of the machine. Reinstall and secure the console to complete the repair.

Water leaking. A small amount of water leaks when

The usual cause of such leak is a damaged or worn drain pump. Replace it to solve the problem. It can be accessed from the back if it is a belt drive machine or from the front if it is a direct drive. Make sure to unplug the machine before servicing.

Cabinet Removal Procedure (Direct Drive machines)
Remove the console depending on the model of your machine.
  1. If the console is secured by screws, simply remove the screws, lift the console up then flip it to the back of the machine. On some models, the screws are hidden under the console's removable end caps. Pull the end caps to the front of the machine to access the screws. If the console is not held by screws, use a putty knife to release the retaining clips under the front corners of the console. Insert the putty knife blade and push it until the clips are released.
  2. Disconnect the lid switch connector from the body of the machine.
  3. The body of the machine is held on to the back panel by two retaining clips. Use a flat blade screw driver and insert it to the lip of the clip and push it to the back of the machine.
  4. Lift the lid and grab the front of the machine's body. Brace the machine's body with your knee, lift and pull it towards you to remove it. You now have the access to the drain pump.
  5. Reinstall the cabinet in reverse order of the procedure above.
For belt drive washers, remove the access panel on the back of the machine to access the drain pump.

Drain Pump Replacement Procedure

  1. Remove the spring clamps that hold the hoses to the pump. Compress the spring clamps and move it away from the pump.
  2. The pump is held on to the motor by two retaining clips. Pry the clips away to remove the pump from the motor.
  3. Remove the hoses from the pump and install the new pump in reverse order of the procedure above.

Replacing my washer lid assembly.

If your washer is a kenmore /whirlpool then you need to flip up the control panel after removing screws on either side of the console. Some models have plastic shoulders that hide the screws some have the screws int he read. Flip up the console and unplug the lid switch quick connect. Pop the 2 clips on the rear of the washer and tip the body foward.
On a GE you get the front panel off by compressing spring clips between the top and front. then remove screws from the facing that hold down the top. You will then wiggle out the top and unplug the disconnect. On a maytag washer you remove the control console to get to the lid switch.

How do I remove the cabinet on a Kenmore Model 11022882101 top loading washer?

You need to remove 2 screws in console. They might be in back, on ends or in front ends. If you can't see any, they are under the console end caps. To remove end caps, pry off by pulling caps towards outside from center part of cap. Pry toward you and towards outside. Then remove 2 screws and flip console up and back. Unplug connector to washer cabinet. Remove 2 gold colored clips by inserting straight screwdriver in them and prying back. Make not of their position first. Now tilt cabinet toward you and slide forward and off base.
To replace, tilt cabinet and slide under frame in front. Now lower cabinet on to frame, making sure cabinet is on frame on sides. Re-install clips by placing them in position and pushing down with palm of hand. Plug in connector, lower console and install screws.

Cannot open washer and remove console

The console should come off by placing a putty knife under the front corner of the console. Push straight in, while lifting up. The console should pop off exposing two brass colored clips that hold the main body on. Remove the clips and the whole casing should come off the frame. I hope this helps you.
