How do you take the top off this washer in order to replace the switch that lets the washer spin when the lid is closed ?? I've figured out what is wrong and where to get the part, but can't get the top of the washer off !!!

The washer needs to be unplugged and all connectors need to be disconnected. You will need to remove the back panel before any connectors can be reached. lable first so you will not forget what goes where. When all connectors are disconnected you will need about six feet of space in front of washer so you can lean or move unit forward. you will have to shimmy the water input tray as you do this.

Check under the slot that engages that switch and make sure the unit is flush with the underside of the top panel.
If your washer was spinning unbalanced, it is possible that it reached up and tagged that sensor. It will reach it. I fixed mine with super glue, but you may want to get another unit, if that is the problem.

I have a kenmore washer model 110.82467800. It won't drain or spin. It does everything else but it won't drain or spin.


Hi,

This is most likely due to the lid switch being bad. The machine is designed not to go into drain or spin with the lid open, if the lid switch is bad, the machine may think the lid is open. Here is a link to a video that shows how to replace the lid switch.

No Spin

Will not spin


Probably a defective spin switch. Mounted on top of the washer, should be a 3/8" hole covered with rubber. Open the top (not the lid) of the washer, by-pass the switch if you are confident you can do it. If it works while the switch is by-passed, replace the switch.

My washer stops in the middle of the cycle, it washes but stops before draining the water to go into the spin rinse cycle. Kenmore nodle 110 serial # ce1402638 Please asvise.


This problem is commonly attributed to a lid switch malfunction. I will need a more accurate model number to confirm (located under the washer lid along the tub rim). "110" is only the beginning prefix of the model number, which identifies the manufacturer. I will need the remaining numbers to determine how the washer is configured.

The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug.

A replacement lid switch can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, repairclinic.com or appliancepartspros.com. All three sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all three for the best price. For instructions on how to replace a lid switch, you can refer to my profile and look under my "Tips and Tricks" for links for Replacing a Lid Switch. If you still need assistance, please contact me and let me know. PS If the lid switch IS defective and you need instructions on how to by-pass it in order to drain the wash tub, let me know. In addition, if my diagnosis is not correct, please post back and elaborate a bit more so I can assist you further.

Broken Machine-Kenmore 70 series Washing Machine


This is commonly caused by a lid switch malfunction. If your model number is correct, the lid switch for your washer is located under the right hand side of the washer casing along the wash tub rim. The switch is activated by a small plastic piece on the washer lid (called a "lid strike") through a small hole. The switch contacts close when you shut the lid. In many cases, the lid switch either comes loose, or the lid strike breaks off. In both cases, the washer will exhibit the symptoms you describe. Open and close the washer lid and listen for a distinctive "clicking" sound as the switch contacts close. If you cannot hear the switch, make sure the lid strike is intact and the mounting screws for the lid switch (located around the wash tub opening on the casing) are tight. Sometimes, all it takes is to tighten the lid switch screws to realign it with the lid strike. If the switch is defective, or the strike is missing, parts can be ordered on line at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your COMPLETE model number, which can be found on a nameplate under the washer lid. The lid switch and lid strike will be listed under the "Top and Cabinet" heading. Other sites that offer competitive pricing are repairclinic.com and appliancepartspros.com. If you require instructions on how to replace the switch, you may use the following link:

If you have questions, or if the diagnosis is incorrect, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
