Question about Washing Machines
If you are referring to a Kenmore TOP LOADER and you are trying to reinsert the brass-colored j-hooks that hold the washer case to the back panel, follow these steps:
1. With the lid of the washer casing open, grasp the case under front rim and place it on the washer frame. While looking down through the washer lid opening, make sure the front lip of the case is placed UNDER the washer frame base in the front.
2. Lower the washer casing back onto the side frames. Make sure the small cleats on the side frames fit into the slotted grooves on the washer case base. If you do not get the case seated correctly it will rattle and vibrate while the washer is in operation.
3. Make sure the back of the washer fits into the washer casing on each side by leaning over the front of the washer and grasping the back panel and pull towards you to seat it.
4. Reinsert the brass clips. Place the 90 degree bend of the clip into the slot on the back of the washer first, and then forcefully push the J-hook end of the clip down into the opening on top of the washer. NOTE: Once the clips are snapped back into place, the washer case should fit tight and not move on the frame.
5. REINSTALL LID SWITCH CONNECTOR. It is easy to forget. If you do not reconnect it, the washer will not work correctly.
6. Reinstall console.
If you are not referring to a Kenmore top loader, configured in this manner, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER so I can determine how your washer is configured. These instructions apply to the majority of all Kenmore top loaders. I hope this helps you.
