First, see the Sears parts site for your washer;

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.26912691&pathTaken=partSearch

Also see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers:

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

In order to replace the "dial" you have to release the console by snapping off the two end caps, unscrew the two phillips head screws, and pull and lift the console.

It should lean back and balance on the hinges.

To release the dials from the timer, you may have to hold the metal shaft on the back of the timer with a thin needle nose pliers while you un-screw the knob.

With the knob off, the dial simply pulls off.

Kenmore elite stackable wont spin and drain


You will need to replace the lid switch.
Here is a link to the part you need.

You should not need any special tools. Unscrew the panel above the lid, then use a screwdriver to pop out the two brass clips that hold the top down and take off the top. That should do it.

I have kenmore 110.26912690 washer. I want to remove and replace the water intake valve and it seems I nearly need to take the whole machine apart. Is this so? can you send me the how to get it out and...


The washer comes apart very easily. Problem is how the control panel is released. Either there is two screws in the front or rear of the control panel once these are removed the panel pulls forward and leans back. On some models there is two clips under the front edges of the panel which have to be depressed with a putty knife. On some models the end caps on the control panel pry off exposing the screws. After leaning back the control panel you must un-plug the lid switch, remove two brass coloured clips holding the case to the rear panel by prying with a screw driver, lean the case forward and remove the case.

How do I get the lid off of kenmore washer 110-24872300.


Remove the 2 end caps on the control console.
They snap off.
Remove the 2 screws on the right and left front of the console.
Lift the control console to the rear of the machine. It is hinged.
Use a flat blade screwdriver to unhook the 2 brass clamps holding the cabinet to the rear panel.
Unhook the lid switch wire harness.
Pull the cabinet forward to remove it from the base.
Reverse this procedure to re-install it.

Lid Switch


HI, The part# is 3949238. There are two ways to replace this switch. The easiest is to remove the two screws holding the lid switch. Pull the switch out enough that you can clip the wires at the switch. Cut the harness off of the new switch leaving enough wire to put wire nuts on connecting them together.
The other way to change the switch is to remove the cabinet. Here is how:
Removing the cabinet. UNPLUG the washer. There are two screws holding the control panel to the cabinet. Most models the screw are in front but, some models have the screws in back. They are on each end. Now raise the control panel up and let it rest on the hinges. Unplug the lid switch harness and locate the clips on each side (bronze in color) and release them.
Now the cabinet will lift off the frame and you can see the lid switch.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

How do I replace the lid switch on kenmore top loading washer 23902? I can't seem to remove the back panel of the washer.


REMOVE THE 2 SCREWS ON TOP DOWN AT THE BASE OF THE CONTROL PANEL, SLIDE IT FORWARD A BIT AND LIFT IT UP IT IS HINGED IN THE REAR. NOW REMOVE THE TWO BRASS LOOKING CLIPS FROM THE TOP AND REMEMBER HOW THEY GO BACK UNDO THE LID SWITCH CONNECTOR(IT LOOKS LIKE IT GOES THROUGH THE TOP DOWN INSIDE). NOW GRASP THE CABINET AND PULL TOWARD YOU TILL THE BOTTOM DISENGAGES FROM THE WASHER BASE.NOW YOU CAN CHANGE THE LID SWITCH
