Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
I have a Kenmore 70 series (110.82874120 in sears parts catalog) 28741 is the smaller number. The switch to stop the spin cycle when you open the top is broken..the lever part is broken. I was wondering what the best way to open the top to get to the switch to replace it. I have done motor swaps and had another machine I owned (ge) have to have belts and also had the band come loose and drop all the water years ago. Also done some switch and element replacement on my dryers years ago...no problems. Just need to get the top of this thing open to get the switch out to go get the replacement. Thanks!!!
First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
Go to the section on Top and Cabinet and you should see how the switch mounts to the cabinet.
You'll have to remove the cabinet first.
Please see GURU JSROCK516 Description of how to remove cabinet and access the transmission. http://www.fixya.com/support/r699497-replacing_gearcase
After you've removed the cabinet, the rest should be relatively easy.
