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.

For the Kenmore 500 (and possibly similar models), you need to release two clips rather than remove screws. Release the console one side at a time inserting a putty knife between plastic end-cap and top of cabinet (blade parallel to floor). You'll have to push about 3/4 inch to release the clip. Do this on both sides, and console will flip back. Follow previously posted instructions for removing gold clips, etc to remove rest of cabinet.

I have an Kenmore 70 series washer. It would not Spin or Agiate so after looking to the internent for help I found it may be the washer coupling. I replaced this part, but now it won't spin, agitate or...


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.

Also see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service manual for top load, direct drive washers:

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

Are you sure that you plugged the Lid Switch back in when you put the cabinet back on??

If the switch is connected, I'd also pull the cabinet again and make sure that the Motor coupler is installed correctly. If it isn't, it could be broken again and the washer wouldn't agitate or spin.

Are you sure you connected the motor?

My kemore 110.24422300 will fill and drain but no agitation(sp) sorry.


Your washer is a direct drive model. It uses a coupling to transfer power from the motor to the transmission. The pump mounts on the motor also. If The coupling can simply fall apart with age but usually a comforter or rug will finish it off. To replace the coupling you must remove the cabinet. I have the directions with manual and repair videos: HERE

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number(110.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

It sounds as if your Lid Switch is broken.

Following is a Whirlpool PDF of the operation and maintenance of top load, direct drive washers with a section on how to by-pass the switch.

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

Follow the first couple of sections of the following

ILLUSTRATED DESCRIPTION OF REMOVING CABINET THRU TRANSMISSION.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

for how to tilt the console back, use a short insulated piece of wire between the two outermost pins on the lid switch and try the spin cycle.

If the washer works, follow the instructions on removing the cabinet to get at the switch and the Sears site to see exactly where the switch is to replace it.

A couple of possibilities.

1. The Brake Cam Driver in the brake assembly (a plastic piece could be broken.

2. The break springs may also be broken.

Following is the Whirlpool / Kenmore installation and maintenance guide for direct drive washers. It has a section on how to access and replace the brake and drive tube.

You'll have to remove the agitators and the drive block. There is a spanner wrench to remove the drive block nut but I've found that a short 10: pipe wrench hooked over one of the nubs on the nut and sharply taped with a hammer will loosen it.

Check for a garment stuck between the tubs.
Check the direct drive coupling on the motor.

You must remove the cabinet to do this.

Kenmore Series 70 washing machine whines and low flow on cold H2O


Yeah you need to replace the water valve. To get to it you need to remove the cabinet on the newer direct drive models, If yours has a rear access panel then you simply pop the top to get to the valve after removing the hoses. Fairly simple job. Here is a good website for direct drive coupling replacement . It shows you how to open the cabinet. http://repair2000.com/coupling.html
GVI 151 is the generic part that fix all belt drive models. Direct drive will need its own little water valve buy hay it ain't but 20 bucks.
For a better explanation post you model number in the comment box and I will research it further for you amigo.

Kenmore washer model 70 leaking


More than likely the pump. Very easy fix. To keep from being redundant I prepared a page on direct drive coupling removal and replacement. The pump must be removed to fix this item therefore it pertains to your problem. Plus you can watch for leaks better with the cabinet removed. To read click HERE.
