REMOVE THE 2 SCREWS ON TOP DOWN AT THE BASE OF THE CONTROL PANEL, SLIDE IT FORWARD A BIT AND LIFT IT UP IT IS HINGED IN THE REAR. NOW REMOVE THE TWO BRASS LOOKING CLIPS FROM THE TOP AND REMEMBER HOW THEY GO BACK UNDO THE LID SWITCH CONNECTOR(IT LOOKS LIKE IT GOES THROUGH THE TOP DOWN INSIDE). NOW GRASP THE CABINET AND PULL TOWARD YOU TILL THE BOTTOM DISENGAGES FROM THE WASHER BASE.NOW YOU CAN CHANGE THE LID SWITCH

How do I get the top up on a kenmore washer. I need to replace the lid micro switch.


Hello,

Their are 2 different ways to remove the top based on when that washer was made the manufacture used differnt methods this is how to do it on each style

remove diagonal panel between washer and control panel


in the back of washer top will either be 2 brass colored clips
or in the very back egde of top will be 2 5/16th inch hexhead screws

for clips place a small screwdriver in front of that clip and pop clips off and slide top forward

for the screws remove screws from behind top in the left/right corner..pull top forward a bit and lift up a little the plug for the lid switch will be in front right side..squeeze the release for that plug,unplug swicth plug then remove top

in both cases lid switch asm. will be on right side of top on the underpart of it

Will not drain or go into spin cycle


the lid switch is bad its there to keep the machine from running if you open the lid during operation,remove the control panel end caps,then there are 2 screws there to remove and lay the control panel back,then there are 2 brass colored clips to remove on the top rear and then unplug the lid switch from the control panel and tilt the whole cover toward you to replace the switch under the lid

Washer drips after cycles are completed.


yes the water inlet valve is bad! might be easier to remove the base, when you remove the base the back stays connected to the frame. just unplug the machine,remove the end caps on your control panel and remove the screws holding it on, them pull slightly forward and up to fllip the control panel back it has plastic hinges on top,be careful not to break them. then unplug your lid switch, with a screwdriver remove the 2 gold clips that hold the base to the back panel, then open your lid lift from back towards you and the whole base will come off leaving the back panel and frame, should be a whole lot easier to replace the valve, then replace reversing your steps , when you are lifting off the base look at the bottom of machine through your lid and you can see how to put it back on the frame! not to hard!

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.

Washer leaking after I replaced lid switch;I removed back panel


You're not supposed to remove the back panel on these washers. The lid switch is under the top portion of the washer. The instructions you should follow are included in this link:

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

If the washer is now leaking after you have removed the back panel, you may have inadvertently loosened one of the clamps on one of the dispenser hoses inside the cabinet near the water inlet valve. The valve is located along the back panel. Use the steps provided in the link to remove the washer casing and inspect.

If you still need assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Can't get top off kenmore washer model # 110 22852 100


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.

Replacing lid switch


someone, Im not finding that model number. Going by the first six digits Im assuming that this is a regular top loader and not an Oasis washer. If so, remove the end caps on the consol by pulling them off. Remove the screws under each end cap and flip the consol up. Unplug the lid switch connector and snap springs holding the cabinet on. The whole cabinet will pull forward and you can get at the lid switch. Check out the pics and post back...Catriver.
