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

I need to replace the lid switch how can i get it out


If you already have the switch to replace the one you are removing I would start by removing the panel on the top of the washing machine, to do that youll need a phillips screwdriver, a putty knife and-or a small standard screwdriver, on both sides of the controll panel there should be 2 plastic covers on the corners that can be removed by prying gently from the bottom twards the front of the machine, revealing 2 phillips screws on the front of both sides,as well as 2 standard hex hed screws on the upper backside, Remove the screws from the front and the back of the controll panel, Pull it forward about 1/2 inch and lift it off the machine revealing 2 bronze clips that hold the back on the washer, remove thease and you should be able to get the back panel about 6-8 inches from the machine...there are 2 phillips screws holding the button for the lid in place- visable looking under the lid of the machine, it is connected to a wire harness that can be disconnected by hand and it will probibly be easier to put back togeather than it was to get apart.

remember when puting it togeather that the top of the back panel goes behind the controll panel or youll have to take it apart to get it back in there again :) and if you need more space to get the wires apart you should be able to simply disconnect 1 ground and maybe the water level line from the tub to get more space between the machine and the back panel

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

Require a new lid switch to fit a model 22622100 type 111 Kenmore washer, also require a service manual to find out how to remove the washer top to instal the new switch


http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=3100001&rdr=%2fmodelsearch_model.aspx%3fmodel_id%3d415134
Check out that link for the switch.
As for the washer top, you don't remove just the top, you remove the whole cabinet. Remove the two end cap trim pieces from the control panel, (just pry them off) remove the two screws securing the panel to the cabinet. Flip the control panel back on it's hinges. Unhook the lid switch wire harness, and use a screwdriver to pop out the two gold clips that secure the cabinet to the back panel. You should now be able to tilt the cabinet slightly forward (towards yourself) and pull off the base. You now have full access to replace the lid switch.

Lid Switch


HI, The part# is 3949238. There are two ways to replace this switch. The easiest is to remove the two screws holding the lid switch. Pull the switch out enough that you can clip the wires at the switch. Cut the harness off of the new switch leaving enough wire to put wire nuts on connecting them together.
The other way to change the switch is to remove the cabinet. Here is how:
Removing the cabinet. UNPLUG the washer. There are two screws holding the control panel to the cabinet. Most models the screw are in front but, some models have the screws in back. They are on each end. Now raise the control panel up and let it rest on the hinges. Unplug the lid switch harness and locate the clips on each side (bronze in color) and release them.
Now the cabinet will lift off the frame and you can see the lid switch.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

How do I replace the lid switch on kenmore top loading washer 23902? I can't seem to remove the back panel of the washer.


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

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.
