SOURCE: Washing machine Kenmore 3.2 cu ft Super capacity plus top loader

fabi, if Im reading you right the machine fills with water and just sits there. Can you hear the motor running when it should be agitating? If so you might have a broken coupler. If the machine is quiet and just sits there, it could be the pressure switch. The first picture shows the pressure switch with the rubber hose and purple wire going to it (far left). There is no model number posted but this is a top loading Kenmore, should be close. Take the rubber tubing off the switch and blow into the switch with another piece of tubing. Does it start agitating? If so, there's your problem. If you do hear the motor running and it's not agitating it may be the motor coupler. If you need more assist...email me at catriver1@gmail.com Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Kenmore Washer/Dryer Stack -- Need to replace Washer

first of all. comming from a Sears Technician.. (don't yell) -- the delivery drivers only know about delivering stuff. they dont know too much,
if the two are the same size they can be stacked.
sometimes have to rig something up
and yes, for that model the top is removed, clips go on the rear and screwed at the front.
in some areas it is sold seperatly as a stacking kit

SOURCE: remove and replace fabric softener dispenser on kenmore model 20952992

I just did it. All you do is pull up on the blue part -- put the fingers of both hands under the rim and pull. It isn't screwed or bolted on. If there's a lot of gunk built up, it's all the harder to pull up. Be prepared for some yucky stuff. It would be nice if that whole section would come out, since you have to clean the area below with Q-tips.

How do you replace the timer in a Kenmore Washer Model 22622?


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Next, see the following for how to release the console:

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=131&osCsid=41610396bdeaf9d724c8d6b9910df259

Basic Whirlpool / Kenmore washers may use one of two different timers. See the following Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

Assuming that you have the metal timer, You'll need to remove the timer knob. The easiest way is to hold the metal shaft that passes through the timer with a thin needle nosed pliers while un-screwing the knob.

Once the knob is off, it's a simple matter to unplug the connectors and remove the bolts holding the timer to the console.

I have a Kenmore washer model 110-20712991. the timer doesn't advance. Wherever I put it, it stays there and only does that functions, never advancing to the next position. Is there any test i can perform...


It does sound like a bad timer:

See the following: This is a Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers. It has testing instructions as well as directions for removing each of the two types of timers.

If your timer is the one with a knob that un-screws, use a thin needle nosed pliers to hold the shaft going thru the timer while you un-screw the knob.

Instructions for installing timer part number 8541110 for Kenmore elite wash machine.....


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Then see the following for how to release the console for access to the timer.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=131&osCsid=5216f244d51176ce1069bbf148b14335

Then see the following Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers. It has troubleshooting and testing procedures as well as a description of the TWO types of timers. Each has different procedures for replacing them.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf


If yours is the metal type, the procedures call for unscrewing the timer knob before it can re removed.

You may need to use a thin needle nose pliers to hold the shaft on the back side of the timer in order to unscrew the knob.

Timer only works on heavy cycle not on normal model #11024632300


Could be a bad timer or loose contacts.
Unplug the washer.
Open the control console.
Remove the wire harness connector from the timer and re-insert it.
Also advance your timer manually 360 degrees around several times. This can cause stuck contacts to work correctly.
If this does not correct your problem you will need a new timer.

I need instructions for replacing snubber pads


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Look at the diagram of the machine base.

If you have the basic Kenmore top load, you can use a thick screwdriver to pry the tub base up from the machine base and pop the old pads out.
