If you allready have the new switch, you are ready to start. If you do not have the part, it is available at www.sears.com under the parts direct tab. you'll need your model number to search out you machine and then the switch.

I find it easiest to remove the entire main case to make this repair. Case removal is as follows:
Disconnect the power cord. 1. There are two screws, one at each front corner, holding the control panel in place, remove them. 2. Remove the two screws at the top, on the back of the control panel. Carefully roll the control panel over the back. 3. Unplug the wire that connects the control panel to the top. Stop here and take note as to how the case connects to the back panel. There is an aligner there that will be your hardest part to deal with later. This will help when reassembling. 4. OK, Put a slotted screw driver into the front of the clips, at the back corners on the top and push back to release them, once again take note to their positioning. 5. The outer case hooks under the front of the frame and the sides have a slot that goes over a pin near the back of the frame side. (Front under, sides on top of frame)Tilt the case up on back and pull forward. Congrats you are there. Replace the switch and reassemble reversing procedure. Good luck. Need help? I'm here. Just enter a comment and Fixya will send an email to me.

Thanks. It was easy following your directions. Switch was bad. I jumpered it while I wait for the part to come in the mail. Appreciate your quick response.

Kenmore model 70 washer will not empty tub with lid closed.


This is a broken lid switch . You can replace the lid switch or if you need to get it working quickly you can bi pass the switch by unplugging the washer, removing the 2 lid latch screws, pulling out the switch cutting the 2 wires and twist them together with a wire nut.
This is assuming you do not have the self locking lid.But I don't think your model has that function.

There are videos at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html that will walk you thru testing and replacing this part. It may be a different model but the replacement will be the same. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available

Kenmore washing machine 80 Series 110 20802 990 Will not agitate or spin"


You need to replace the Kenmore Washer Lid Switch. I had the same problem so being lazy I would just push down on the washer's lid and it would push the lid switch further down. making the water drain. after a while I just replaced the lid switch.

We need to replace the switch that allows the spin cycle to work with the lid down. The back is one solid piece we dont know how to get to the timer to plug in the new switch we bought


What you are talking about is called the "lid switch". The following link explains how to replace one on a Kenmore top loader:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

Make sure you check to see if the switch is simply loose. There should be some mounting screws holding it in place. In addition, there is usually a small plastic piece mounted on the washer lid on most Kenmores that activate the switch when the lid is closed. This is called a "lid strike". If the mounting screws are loose, or if the lid strike is broken or missing, the washer will exhibit the same symptoms as having a broken lid switch. For replacement parts, refer to searspartdirect.com and type in your complete model number (located along the washer lid opening). The parts you need will be listed under the "Top and Cabinet" heading.

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.
