Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
I think it is the lid switch because it does not click when depressed.
how do i get to it to replace it?
Take the pieces of plastic off of each end of the console. Then remove the screw you will find under the plastic pieces. Pull the console forward and up. The console will flip back, out of the way. Unplug the wires that were under the middle of the console. These go to the lid switch. Push the plug that stays attached to the case, into the case so that it falls free. Now take the screws out located at the lid switch. Un-clip the clips found under where the console was covering. You will see them on each back corner. You should be able to tilt the case towards you. Do so and remove from base. Look under the case, find the plug you pushed through and un-clip it from under the case. Now replace the old switch with the new by doing things in reverse.
P.S. While your into your machine this far, you might want to change your coupler. It's the most common part to go bad on these machines. You will find it behind the motor. Look under the motor at the floor. If you see a black powder, you should replace the coupler. If not it will not be long you will be doing so anyway. To replace. Un-clip pump. (Dont remove, just push out of the way) Now take the 1/4" screws out of the clips that hold the motor on. Then unplug motor and un-clip, motor will fall off in your hand,. The coupler consist of 3 parts. One is on the motor shaft, one is on the transmission shaft and one is between these two and it is black rubber. All three parts come together when you buy a coupler.
