Replacement parts (if required) can be found at the following websites:

The average cost of these components varies, so shop and compare. The first three websites I listed have helpful exploded view parts diagrams that can help you locate and properly identify the parts you need.

If you have any questions about this repair, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore washer model 110 26712690 fills up with water and does nothing. wife said she smelt something burning. I thought maybe a belt but when I took it apart I didnt see any belts.


no belts in a kenmore,if it filled with water and stopped most likely you have a bad lid switch.close the lid,open it up a few inches and close it down a few times,if you don't hear a clicking sound every time you open and close it the lid switch is bad.,if you already have it apart,you can jump it out,the white harness you disconnected next to the right clip is the lid switch harness,stick a wire in the two outside holes,put it on spin and pull the timer out,it will run.the model number you sent isn't correct,i was gonna give you the part number and price of the switch,just give it to your parts store and they will sell you the correct part.

Agitation does not stop when lid is open... Kenmore 20172 Top Load coin-op Washer needs new lid switch? Cost? Easy to Fix? Do I need a expert to do? Thank you...


sounds like the lid switch is jammed on- you can try to spray it with WD 40 or replace it it usually requires taking the machine apart to get at the wiring. Easy fis, just need patience. the switch should be able to be ordered online.

Can't figure out how to get the washer apart to put in the lid switch.


If this is a Whirlpool made machine (which includes Sears Kenmore), there's a video here showing how to get the cabinet off for different models.

Getting to lid switch on kenmore washer to replace it


This can be done without taking anything apart or removing anything except the lid switch.

Take the two screws out that holds the lid switch and let it drop into your hand. You may have to pull a little if it doesn't drop down on it's own. You may also have to push the tub over to get to the lid switch if you have big hands.

Kenmore Top Load washer


You can replace the switch, it appears, without lifting the lid. I've ordered the repair manual (LIT4314044) but I can feel the connector and wires. It appears that the lid switch can be replaced without taking anything apart. There does appear to be a screw on the back that holds the ground in place.
