Question about Washing Machines
I am trying to replace the direct drive coupling on a Model 11022882101 Kenmore washer. How do I remove the cabinet so I can gain access to the area adjacent to the motor to replace the coupling?
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.
