    Can you provide the exact Make, Model and Kenmore model number? ..........

    Kenmore model numbers use the format ###.######## with the first three digits of 110 for Whirlpool manufactured machines.........

    The model number on top load washers is usually found by lifting the lid and looking above the tub.

    The Fixya numbers are Stock Numbers.

    Since basic top load direct drive, top load electronic and front load washers are very different, the actual Model Numbers are necessary to correctly diagnose the problem.

There should be clips on the front panel sides.
The two end caps should pop off. Then a couple screws.
Then a couple clips that hold the base of the unit that pop off which is on the top of the machine. Just unscrew the screws, tilt the dial board back to access the clips, undo the clips, and slide out the base of the unit to access all kinds of fun stuff.

How to change lid switch in a Whirlpool top load washer.

Tools needed: Phillips screwdrive, flathead screwdriver, putty knife, 3/8 inch nut driver.<br /> <br /> Every model is different. So read though. While standing in front of washer there is a phillips screw on each side of console. Some models have a screw on each side but in back of console. Some models dont have screw so you will need a putty knife to slide under console on each side an push the clips inward and lift up on console. Once you have removed the screws or the clips lift the console and allow to flip upside down and the support hindges on the back of washer. Disconnect the quick connect the clips into another quick connect Brcketed on the frame. Remove the two gold curved shaped hinges one one each side with the flathead screwdriver.Tilt cabinet back and move it away from the washer. Unerneather you will see a quick connect with wires running to the lid switch. Remove the two phillips screws that are under the lid holding the lid switch in place. Remove the 3/8 inch nut holding the ground wire next to lid switch. There are also two hindges the hold the wires inside the lip of the frame. Pull hinges towards you enough to allow the wires to come out. Install new lid switch with the two phillips screws from the old one. Reconnect the 3/8 inch grounding wire to frame. Insert the wires back inbetween the hindges to hold wires. Snap the quick connect into the frame from underneathe. It can only go on one way. Once you have the new lid swtch installed than go back in front of washer. Place the cabinet back in place. Push the lower lip of the bottominside of cabinet back under lip of frame of washer. Gently tilt the cabinet back into place. Take your hand and make sure the glide (white plastic strips ) on the back frame line up and than put the gold hinges back in place. Than do the other side. Make sure its stable. Reconnect the lid switch quick connect. Place console back into place and make sure its snug. Put screws back in place. Now standing in front of washer. Tilt washer towards you to reset the self leveling legs. Now lift the lid and start your washer in spin cycle. Close the lid and open it until the basket returns to normal stopping mode. Keep doing this it usually takes 5-10 times increase speed of basket each time ( have lid closed longer for faster speeds). When the basket breaks are reset you will hear the breaks engage and the basket slowly comes to a stop. If you see it jerking or breaking hard The break package is not reset yet keep trying to reset. Once the break package is reset and the lid switch works good than its laundry time. <br /> <br /> Future knowledge: Lid switches go out for a few different reasons. If you drop the lid and it hits the lid switch hard it can start damaging it. Wear and tear using your washer will wear them out over time. Most common is the dropping of the lid which breaks lid switch over time. Thank you for taking your time to reason this How To and I hope this helped you in your task.

Brand new wahse was just installed. The spin cycle vibrates so hard that it moves on the floor and vibrates the whole room. Shipping plug has been removed and washer is level.

Hello. This happened to me, also. We removed the back panel of the washer and removed the styrofoam blocks around the drum. These are for shipping purposes and should have been removed at the time of installation. Hope this helps!

The washer doesnt spin the water out all the time

This could be the drain setup. It should be about the same height as the back of the washer, and should be a standpipe with a bigger diameter than the drain hose off the washer. Air should be able to circulate around the washer pipe. If the drain is up to high, it is a hard job for the washer to pump that water up. Also be sure there is no blockage in your drain.

Cabinet opening

Goede, the end caps will come off, just get a good grip on them and pull hard. Under the end caps are the screws to open the consol. There is nothing in the back of the washer to remove. Then after flipping the consol there are two snap springs to remove and the whold cabinet lifts off. You have to unplug the lid switch harness. The attachment might help. back.
