How do you detach the front cover or the top cover to the washer. It won't drain and I am in the process of removing the lid switch first to see if this is the case. How do you properly remove the lid...


See the following illustrated description:

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=131&osCsid=0da65cea0e338fe930b1fde153a243f0

Basically, on most top load, direct drive washers you pop the end caps off of the console and should see a screw under each cap location. Remove the screws and pull the console toward you and tilt up.


You should see the connection from the console to the cabinet for the Lid Switch. Before assuming that it is the switch, I'd jump the two outer connections with a short piece of insulated wire and plug the washer back in. If it works, the switch is the problem.

The cabinet simply pulls toward you and off.

See the following Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual with diagnostics and a description of how to jump the switch.

I need to get access to the inside of a kenmore top laod washer how would i go about getting inside of it


The entire cabinet removal procedure is illustrated in this diagram. Even though the procedure is very straight forward, a couple of fine points are worth mentioning:
  • Some Kenmore-branded versions of this washer use plastic endcaps to cover the console screws. Just remove the console end caps and the console retaining screws are right there. This technique is illustrated in this photo.
  • Once you've removed the console screws, flip the entire control console up and back to reveal the cabinet retaining braces, shown here.
  • After you pull the cabinet back and away from the washer, here's an illustrated anatomy of your naked washing machine. The lid switch is screwed to the inside of the cabinet top panel and is easily accessible with the cabinet removed.Hope this helps GOOD LUCK

  • Unplug the power cord of the Kenmore 70 series washer from the electrical outlet before attempting to replace the drive belt. Remove the end caps from the control console by pushing in on the center of the caps with your thumbs and pulling the caps forward.
  • 2 Unfasten the screws on the front of the control console with a screwdriver and set the screws aside. Flip the control console back so it is resting against the rear hinges.
  • 3 Locate the two-pronged electrical plug on the top of the washer near the back and unfasten it by pulling the plug straight up by hand. Remove the metal clips on the top of the washer, prying them up with a screwdriver and setting them out of the way.
  • 4 Lift the washer cabinet off the base and set it aside. Locate the motor at the base of the cabinet near the front and unhook the springs from the motor carriage with a pair of pliers.
  • 5 Unbolt the motor from the motor carriage, using a socket wrench to unfasten the bolts. Unplug the electrical wiring harness from the motor by hand.
  • 6 Lift the motor off the motor carriage and take the drive belt off the motor and transmission pulleys, discarding the belt. Place the new drive belt around the transmission and motor pulleys.
  • 7 Plug the electrical wiring harness into the motor by hand and secure the motor to the motor carriage with the bolts. Attach the springs to the motor carriage by hand.
  • 8 Place the washer cabinet back over the base and secure it with the metal clips on the top lid. Connect the two-pronged electrical plug to the top lid of the washer by hand.
  • 9 Flip the control console back down over the washer lid and secure the console with screws in the front. Place the caps back over the ends of the control console by hand.
  • 10 Plug the Kenmore 70 series washer into the electricity supply and test wash.

    How do I replace the lid switch on my Kenmore Series 80 washing machine I have the part


    Hi


    To replace the lid switch in a Whirlpool-built direct drive washer you’ll need to open it up. This washer use plastic end caps to cover the console screws. Just remove the console end caps and the console retaining screws are right there. Once you've removed the console screws, flip the entire control console up and back to reveal the cabinet retaining braces. After the cabinet is pulled back from washer you’ll be able to see the lid switch. You can inspect whether the lid switch is disconnected or burnt, use a multimeter to check the continuity of the lid switch.


    Please post back for any further assistance.

    How to replace kenmore elite washer model 110 16962503 lid switch


    Hi,

    Let me offer you a generic solution for most of the Kenmore washers :-

    There are 2 screws that secure the console to the cabinet top. The are located in the front or rear corners, and on a Kenmore, may be hidden behind the end caps. Remove the screws, and tilt the cabinet backwards. Remove the 2 gold clips, and disconnect the wiring harness. Tilt the cabinet forward, and off of the base. The lid switch can now be accessed from inside the cabinet (I sit inside).


    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks.

    1

    Disconnect your Kenmore Oasis washing machine from its power source. Make sure that your washer is unplugged before beginning to disassemble it.
    #
    2

    Remove the screws that hold the control console to the top of your Oasis washer. In some Kenmore Oasis models, the two screws may be covered by plastic end caps. After removing the screws, set them aside until you are ready to replace them.
    #
    3

    Flip the console up, back and out of the way.
    4

    Locate the cabinet clips on the top of your Kenmore Oasis washer. These clips are located toward the back of the washer top and would be hidden by the console if it were not currently flipped up.
    #
    5

    Slide your screwdriver underneath the metal cabinet clips. Wiggle the screwdriver back and forth to gently pry the cabinet clips free.
    #
    6

    Disconnect the group of colored wires that plug into the top of the washer from the control console. These wires control the lid switch on your Kenmore washing machine. To disconnect, grasp the white plastic clip and pull gently.
    #
    7

    Remove the washing machine cabinet. Tilt the cabinet towards you, and then lift the entire cabinet up and off of its platform.

    Hello
    Welcome to Fixya
    My name is Huum,


    Faulty Direct Drive Coupling (Whirlpool / Kenmore / Roper / Estate)
    The Direct Drive (motor) Coupling may be broken. Many Whirlpool/Kenmore brands washing machines utilize a small, relatively inexpensive direct drive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other.

    It can wear out over time or fail under overloading conditions. This protects your transmission from excessive loading.

    Cabinet Removal - Whirlpool / Kenmore / Estate / Roper Direct Drive Models

    **NOTE**
    The diagrams referenced in this article are available for download in the Attachments section below:


    1.) Preparation
    It should be obvious but the first step should be to unplug the washing machine. Then pull it away from the wall a six to eight inches.

    2.) Rotate Control Panel
    Locate and remove the screws (items 49 on the Control Panel Diagram) that are installed in the base of the both the left and right side control panel end caps. Once the screws are removed, pull up and forward on the control panel. The control Panel will rotate toward the back. Tilt it back until the hinges catch. Allow it to rest there.

    3.) Unplug Harness
    With the Control Panel Assembly folded out of the way you should now disconnect the wire harness that connects the console to the main case. The harness plug disconnects from the top of the cabinet.

    4.) Remove Clips
    Use a flat head screw driver to remove spring clips (items 6 on the Cabinet Diagram) from both the left and right side of the cabinet top. This can be accomplished by inserting a flat head screw driver into the spring clip and pry toward the back of the machine. Once each clip is loose, feed the clip out of the hole in the rear panel.

    5.) Detach Cabinet
    Now open the lid. Use one hand to hold the lid open and the other to grab the front of the cabinet opening exposed when opening the lid. Tilt the entire cabinet assembly toward you by pulling both the front cabinet lip and the lid. This should release the rear locking tabs.

    Use your knee as a lever to lift the front of the cabinet away from the washing machine base. This should release the front locking tabs and complete the removal of the cabinet from the machine.

    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.
