Pull the knobs and remove the nuts on the controls to release the outer panel. Then there will be screws to remove the inner panel.

Need to no how to getr in to the inner part of my washing machine. Is there clips holding? Will it pop open by pulling on it

If you are referring to a Whirlpool manufactured TOP LOADER (such as Kenmore, Estate, Roper, Frigidaire and some later model Maytags), the interior of the washer is accessed by removing the exterior washer case. The following link explains how:

Older Maytag and GE TOP LOADER interiors are commly accessed by locating the two retaining clip along the seam where the top panel meets the front of the washer (about 2 inches in from each side) and pushing in with a putty knife to depress. This releases the top and it can be lifted up. The access screws that hold the front panel in pace are now accessible and can be loosened to remove the front panel for full access to the interior.

If this is a FRONT LOADER, the interior is accessed on MOST models by removing the washer top panel. This is accomplished by removing the retaining screws that hold the top panel in place in the rear of the washer. This will allow access to the controls and dispenser. For access to the drain pump and drive components, you will need to remove the kick panel directly below the door. There are a series of retaining screws along the bottom front edge that hold the panel in place.

If none of these tips help, please post back with a MODEL NUMBER so that I may assist you further.

The off/on pull switch appears to be broken. I suppose we need a new part and someone to help me. Will you please advise? Thank you. Bill Anderson

If your handy enough to attempt to replace the control timer yourself..You can start by unplugging the dryer first and removing the screws on the rear of the control panel...You'll then need to slide a flat screw driver under the clips located on the left and the right sides of the panel that attach to the top lid of the dryer... its a little tricky but you'll figure it out... once inside the control panel remove the nob from the timer and remove the wiring clip attached to the timer...remove all the screws holding the timer in place on the panel...A new timer could cost up to $85.00 it depend on the model...Good luck

Cannot open kenmore 11022722100 control panel

Your control panel has removable end caps. Those are the two white plastic trim pieces at each end. The end caps will pop off by grabbing the top part and pulling it towards you. You can place a flat blade screwdriver in the top groove in the rear of the panel and give it a slight twist to pop it free, if you can't get it to come off by hand. With the end cap removed, you should see a screw. There's one on each end. Loosen these screws and the panel will lift up and and fold back over the back panel. Use care not to damage the small hinges (if equipped) that hold the operator console to the washer top.

If you need an illustration to assist you, go to and type in your model number. There are helpful exploded view diagrams, with parts listings, of each section of your washer.

If you have questions, or need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

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.

Kenmore washer continully runs

Hello Friend, Your problem is easily solved. You need to replace the water inlet valve. It's easy to replace the water inlet valve on your machine. First, remove the two screws that hold control panel in place and tilt back exposing the two metal clips that hold the cabinet in place. You will see some wires plugged into the cabinet, just unplug them. There are two clips, one on each side. Just pop these clips off and lift cabinet slightly from back and tilt forward. At this point you will be able to completely remove the cabinet. Once you have cabinet removed just set it aside. Now, you will be able to gain access to the water inlet valve. Simply remove the hose and wires from valve and replace with new one. Re-install the cabinet, control panel etc. This should solve your problem. Happy to help, Tim.

Kenmore washer

On the top load models, you need to remove the washer's 3-sided cabinet and then the pump is secured by two clips to the motor.
To remove the cabinet, open the control panel up, then find the two retainer straps that hold the cabinet in place. Pop them out with a screwdriver and pull the cabinet back and up. The pump is in he center by the floor, you can't miss it...

Cant get the back panel off the washing machine

If it is a top loading washer the cabinet itself is actually removed from the back panel and base frame.

1. Remove two trim caps on either side of the control panel, they are just plastic, and clip in place, either remove by hand, or if they don't come right away you can pop them off with a flat blade screwdriver.
2. Remove two screws (now visible with trim removal) that secure the panel to the cabinet.
3. Panel should now be able to pull up and out, flip it back on it's hinges.
4. Disconnect the wire harness from the lid switch connector, this should be the only place (on most models) where wires connect from the control panel to the cabinet top.
5. Remove the two gold clips that secure the cabinet to the rear panel of washer, they snap into the cabinet, and should pop out easily with a flat screwdriver, this can be difficult to figure out which way to go with the screwdriver, the best I can describe it would be to slide the blade of the screwdriver into the front of the clip (about 2 inches below the cabinet top) and then press the screwdriver back over the top of the clip for leverage. It should pop right out.
6. With the clips removed, you should now be able to simply tip the cabinet towards yourself and pull it right off of the frame. The washers "guts" should all be accessible now.
Hope that helps.
