SOURCE: Cannot figure how to open top cover

The top of the machine does not open. You have to remove the console to get to the retaining clips that hold the entire case on the frame. If you wish to pursue this follow these steps: 1. Unplug machine. It's best not to have any live voltages when working around the console. 2. Lift console. It will come off in one of two ways depending on what type you have. The end caps on either side of the console are removable on some models by popping them off to the expose a screw on either end. If teh end caps don't come off, you will have a retaining clip holding it in place on each side. With this type, you will need to insert a putty knife (from the FRONT of the console) under each corner and push in to release the retaining clip. 3. Once the console has been lifted from the top, carefully lift up and back to its resting position over the back panel of the machine. Use care when when doing so that you don't break the plastic hinges that hold the console in place. 4. There are two brass-colored clips under the console that you need to remove. Insert a flat screwdriver straight down through the top into a groove in the clip and pry towards the back of the machine. This will release the clip. 5. Once the clips have been removed the entire case comes off as one piece. Make sure you disconnect the lid switch connection on the top of the machine first. This will be a plastic white connector plug. Open lid and place one under the front rim of the case and pull from the back towards you. The case will lift off from the back first and off the frame. 6. Replacing the case is always the tricky part. Looking down through the lid of the case, make sure you place the bottom front lip UNDER the frame first and slowly lower the case on to the frame. There are four cleats the must fit back into slots on the frame before it will seat properly. Also, make sure the back fits back into the casing on both sides or the retaining clips will not go back in properly. Insert the clips into the slot on the back panel first then push down on the opening on top of the washer for them to snap back into place. Now, I don't know if you still want to try to tackle this or not. It does seem like a lot, but it really isn't once you get the procedures down. If it's just a simple matter of cleaning because the washer smells, the odor may be coming from the wash tub itself. Running the machine on empty, with the hottest water cycle you can with a cup of bleach can go a long way towards killing bacteria and mildew. Just another thought to save you a lot of effort. Good luck. I hope this helps you.

First of all, unplug your washer. You will need to remove the console in order to get to the lid switch. I believe your washer has release tabs under the console at each front corner. Simply slide a putty knife straight in from the front at each corner and push in while lifting up. You should feel the release tabs push in and the console will pop up. Or, you may have a console that has removable end caps. They can be removed by gently prying up on the top of them from the rear on each side. You may have to use a small screwdriver for this. The caps should pop right off. Once removed, you will need to loosen a screw under each cap. Once you have the console loosned, carefully lift it up and lay it back over the rear panel of the washer in its resting position. Be careful not to damage the small plastic hinges that hold it in place. Now you will need to perform the following steps:

1. Under the console you will find the lid switch connector. Unplug the switch from the connector.

2. There will be two brass colored clips. You will need to remove these to remove the machine casing. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver away from you while holding into the groove and the clip will release.

3. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Now pull the case from the frame by lifting from the back first.

You do not have to remove it all the way from the frame. Just enough to gain access to the switch. All there is to the switch is a couple of screws holding it in and a ground wire. It's a pretty easy repair job.

Once you've completed your switch installation, make sure you get the case back on the frame correctly by following these steps:

1. While looking down through the lid opening, place the front lip of the machine case UNDER the washer frame and start leaning it back onto the frame. There are four small cleats that must fit into four slots on the case or the washer will vibrate. Make sure the frame is seated properly, lean forward from the front of the washer, grasp both sides of the rear panel and pull towards the case. The rear panel should be seated and flush with the casing before inserting the retaining clips.

2. Insert the brass-colored clips into the slot on the washer rear panel first, then push straight down into the opening on the top of the washer with some force. If you have the case seated correctly, the clips will snap back in.

3. Make sure you plug the connector from the console back into the lid switch receptacle and close the console.

I hope you find this helpful. If you have any questions please let me know by posting comments.

Kenmore model 70 washer will not empty tub with lid closed.


This is a broken lid switch . You can replace the lid switch or if you need to get it working quickly you can bi pass the switch by unplugging the washer, removing the 2 lid latch screws, pulling out the switch cutting the 2 wires and twist them together with a wire nut.
This is assuming you do not have the self locking lid.But I don't think your model has that function.

The lid is locked on my kenmore oasis washer


Unplug the washer first. How to open the service lid. Latches are approx 4" in from corners in front (where the little crack is below the lid) insert a putty knife, pushing in on the latches and pull up as it gives. Hold onto the side you've released and pop the oter side and lift up.
Now you will be able to see the lid lock; center front from underneath. Use a 1/4" nutdriver and remove the latch.
Now as far as I know, pn:8563937 was replaced with: W10059230 Bought mine from www.midwestapplianceparts.com.
Install is simple; 3 screws (1/4") behind the back panel will allow you to access the plug. Just feed the old one out and the new one in.
