Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
How do you access lid switch
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:
Enter your model number and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.
To get to the lid switch on a Kenmore Top Load, you have to remove the cabinet.
See GURU JSROCK516 Description of how to remove cabinet and access the transmission. http://www.fixya.com/support/r699497-replacing_gearcase
Basically, you will remove two covers if your model has them, two screws, unolug the lid switch from the console and pull the cabinet forward.

You have to pretty much use a putty knife to remove the front panel. Insert the putty knife into the edge of the front panel where it meets the top lid panel about and inch or two from the sides. One clip on each side. Push in the putty knife and give a little pull on the front panel repeat step for other side. That should get you into where you need to be.
Hope this helps you out. Feel free to ask any more questions about this if you run into anymore issues.
