It's under the top panel, you must remove the two screws on the control panel (one on each side in the front lower corner of control panel), then roll the entire panel up and over the top on it's hinges. then there are two gold clips (one on each side) that loosen the back from the entire cabinet, stick a flat blade screwdriver in them and they will pop out. theres one plug with three wires in it going to the top re,ove it, then open the lid and grab the top panel and tilt to you about 30 degrees up and slide the whole cabinet away from the base and guts of the machine.
now you can access the lid switch to replace it.

Kenmore Washer 70 series Model #110.22722100 won't spin


Check door switch: If the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining. Release switch. Motor should stop. Press switch a second time. Washer should start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid switch is pressed, replace the switch. OR

Hello, Have a Kenmore series 70 (capcity plus).


Note after reading a bunch of information. I went home and removed the hose from the Level Switch and "clean it", if you will and re-attached. Started a load, and bingo bango bongo, it work. Thanks for the insight.

I got kenmore 70 series. it doesnot spin but it


You have a bad lid switch . This is the piece , the lid actuator piece , goes down onto , in the hole on the top . Try putting a screwdriver into the hole , to activate the switch , to drain the water and to spin the clothes dry enough to remove , until the switch can be replaced .

I have a Kenmore 70 series 28741


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.82874120+

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.
