I want to remove the lid only

Rusty on the edges
Maureen, I would just leave lid in place,Tape lower part under lid with duct tape to prevent scratches, then sand as much rust off as you can, then 2 coats of a good rust primer(Tremclad) and paint. Use masking tape and newspaper to cover areas not to be painted.

How do I get to the lid switch on Frigidaire washer dryer combo? I need to get the washer top off, I am guessing. But where do I do that? Product replacement site states removed 2 screws from rear

Actually, if you look at the front panel on the washers bottom edge there are two screws located a few cms from each edge. Unscrew and grab both edges of panel and pull down. Whole front should come off and switch and mounting is visible and simple. Repeats steps opposite to get panel back on.

My Kenmore 20902 washing machine lid is rusted. I...

Hello, Guest who?

Getting the lid off of your Kenmore is simple. Raise the lid. At the bottom on each side are a pair of screws that go through the lid and attach to a reinforcing bracket on the inside. Take these screws out, remove the bracket, do the same for the other side. A small bowl or ziplock will keep these small bits from getting away. When you have repainted or replaced the lid, insert the bracket with the loop down, and insert the screws from the outside through the lid.

Have had numerous items ruined due to brown stain

My Maytag Front Loader also has periodically caused rust stains on clothes. After investigating it I determined the cause.

The top of the machine is rusting around the opening under the lid where you add the detergent, fabric softener, and bleach. Water apparently splashes up on the bottom of the lid and it rusts. The flakes of rust then flake off and fall into the plastic reservoir and are washed into the machine. The only fix is to replace the top of the machine, or take it off, physically clean off the rust and apply a coating of rust resistant paint to the inside. A quick fix is to remove the plastic cover (4 phillips screws) and clean as much rust off around the edges as you can. Be sure and keep the rust from falling down the hole where the water flows into the machine.

Help with Kenmore washer

most often the lid swtch is out of alignment, less often the switch fails

with the lid open examine the underside of the lid for the plastic 'tooth' that is supposed to engage the switch, if broken or missing replace, test
with the lid open and the washer turned on, use a ballpoint pen to engage the switch plate in the hole at the right side of the lid
If the washer starts, adjust the switch position, test
If the washer does not start
remove the edge trims from the console
remove the screws from the lower corners of the console
slide consloe forward ~1/2 inch, flip up and over
ensure cable is connected to lid switch connector
try lid switch again with ball pen
if washer does not start the switch has failed,
remove metal retainer clips from rear of washer top, remember installed position, you have to put them back
lift washer case 1 inch slide forward, lay down, remove switch
reassemble in reverse order, test

3-5 times a month, takes about 25 minutes, the switch costs $7.95+tax
