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 set it aside.
You can access the lid switch once the cabinet is off.
Please let me knwo if I can assist you further.

    The whole cabinet will come off. Once the bronze clips are removed, pull the cabinet toward you and lift off.

    Does this help you?

SOURCE: 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.

You can replace the switch, it appears, without lifting the lid. I've ordered the repair manual (LIT4314044) but I can feel the connector and wires. It appears that the lid switch can be replaced without taking anything apart. There does appear to be a screw on the back that holds the ground in place.

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.

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

How to open the top of my kenmore elite washer


There are two metal clips under the lid, about 3 inches in from the corners in front. You have to slip a flat screwcriver or a paint knife into the clip and push hard. Once the clip opens you can lift up the top of the washer. If you need to remove the tub, you have to first remove the cap from the top of the agitator. That will reveal a bolt that has to be removed in order to lift the tub out. I hope this helps.

Kenmore top load washer, it washes but won't rinse or spin, I tried to lift the top off to check the lid switch becuse the lever pad is stuck down, but how do the tops lift off


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.

Newer model Whirlpool / Kenmore washers use a Lid Switch as a safety device. Unless the switch senses that the lid on the washer is closed, the washer will neither agitate nor spin.

Older models only used the switch during the spin cycle.

Try to bypass the Lid Switch by removing the Console and jumping the two outermost pins on the switch.

This is a Whirlpool PDF on how these washers operate. It has a diagram on jumping the switch as well as a detailed section on how the transmission works.

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


It also has a troubleshooting guide.

To bypass the switch, you only have to disconnect the power to the washer, tilt the console back, unplug the switch and using an short piece of insulated wire, jump the two outermost contacts on the connector coming from the console and plug the washer back in.

Following is a description of how to gain access to the console and how to remove the cabinet if necessary.

With the jumper in place, try to re-start the washer.

If it works, the Lid Switch is a relatively inexpensive part.

Lid switch replacement


unplug washer first. dont know your washer make but some of the older units the top comes off by removing screws from a bracket just below the control panel on the back of washer. lift top which will allow you to remove screws that hold switch into place. wires should unplug.

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

The lid switch has failed. To replace lid switch;
REMOVE POWER, lift the console by removing the trim on either side. Grasp the top of the trim and pull forward to expose a screw. Remove both screws and lift console.

1. You will find a lid switch connector (white in color). Unplug the switch from the connector.

2. There will be two brass colored clips. 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 down and away from you 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). Tilt and slide cabinet forward to remove.

The lid switch can now be accessed and replaced.

If you need further assistance, let me know
