Question about Washing Machines

How can I access and remove the lid switch in kenmore washer 110.92380200?

The lid switch is located underneath the "box" that surrounds and contains the round tank which is the actual washing machine. The lid switch is right below and to the right of the lid, in between that "box" and the round tank, and it seems to be connected to some wires attached to the (right) lateral wall. I don't know how to remove this lid switch since it's not clear to me how it is that it becomes unattached. With wires and everything or do I just need to pull and unplug only the switch per say? I don't really know and I don't want to cause more damage. Thanks a million!

You first have to remove the 2 phillip head screws on your face panel.There is one on each side located about 1 inch from the front corner.tThese 2 screws are holding down the entire front timer panel.Ok,now lift up & forward at the same time so you can swing back this timer panel and get it to balance back out of the way.Now, it becomes a little harder,locate the harness that your lid/spin switch is on by unscrewing the 2 screws on the spin switch.Pulling the bad switch away from your cabinet will expose the harness ,that way you will see where it is plugged in.After unplugging it your now ready to plug the new one in and just tuck in the harness in the cabinet.Flip the timer panel back down and screw it back down.Your done !!!

I have a Kenmore top load washer (110-22642100) that will fill, agitate through entire wash cycle, but that's it.


HI THERE, IT SOUNDS AS IF YOUR PUMP IS BLOCKED, NOT WORKING OR SOMETHING MORE SERIOUS. START BY CHECKING THE PUMPS IS NOT BLOCKED, LOOSE CHANGE NORMALLY CAUSES THIS AND IS RELATIVELY EASY TO FIX.

Finding the pump on the Kenmore Elite top load washer is a fairly easy project that can be done in about a half hour. The Kenmore Elite is part of the GE line of appliances and shares many of the same interior mechanical parts and systems. The Kenmore Elite is a very streamlined exterior cabinetry design, but the interior can be accessed by removing just a few screws in order for you to locate the water pump.
things you'll need:

  • Screwdriver
    • 1

      Unplug the electrical cord of the Kenmore Elite top load washer from the electrical outlet before attempting to locate the pump.

    • 2

      Remove the end caps on the control console of the dryer by pressing in on the caps with your thumbs and pulling the caps forward to unfasten them.

    • 3

      Unfasten the screws on the ends of the control console in the front with a screwdriver and tilt the console back so that it rests on the back hinges.

    • 4

      Unplug the top lid switch from the rear of the lid that sits underneath the control console, pulling the switch straight up off the metal prongs by hand.

    • 5

      Pry the metal clips that sit on the top lid up with a screwdriver, lifting the clips to unlatch the top and pull the top lid cover off the washer base, setting it aside.

    • 6

      Locate the water pump at the base of the washing machine on the top of the motor shaft.

    • 7

    • take the cover off the pump and remove any blockage or debris.

thanks and good luck

How do i replace the drain hose on a kenmore 700 washer?


If this is a Kenmore TOP LOADER washer, the drain hose(s) can be accessed for replacement by removing the exterior washer case. This is usually the standard practice for these washers as the back panel is not designed to come off. Tipping the washer backwards to access underneath is also not recommended, because the gearcase (transmission) contains oil. The oil can leak out through the breather hole on the top of the transmission, so these washers should remain in the upright position when servicing.

The following link explains how to remove the exterior washer case to access the washer interior components:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3631789-washer_case_removal_whirlpool_top

Once the washer case is removed, all the drain hoses are fully accessible and easy to remove and replace. There will be some residual water left in the lines, so you may need to lay down some old towels to keep the mess to a minimum. HINT: You can use a wet/dry shop vac and pull a vacuum on the drain line to remove excess water to prevent any cleanup.

If you have any questions about any procedures, please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER (located on a nameplate along the wash tub rim under the washer lid) and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Why does my washer now flash lid


The lid switch is not reporting to the machine that it is closed.
Access the lid switch and replace it.

#
1

Disconnect your Kenmore Oasis washing machine from its power source. Make sure that your washer is unplugged before beginning to disassemble it.
#
2

Remove the screws that hold the control console to the top of your Oasis washer. In some Kenmore Oasis models, the two screws may be covered by plastic end caps. After removing the screws, set them aside until you are ready to replace them.
#
3

Flip the console up, back and out of the way.
4

Locate the cabinet clips on the top of your Kenmore Oasis washer. These clips are located toward the back of the washer top and would be hidden by the console if it were not currently flipped up.
#
5

Slide your screwdriver underneath the metal cabinet clips. Wiggle the screwdriver back and forth to gently pry the cabinet clips free.
#
6

Disconnect the group of colored wires that plug into the top of the washer from the control console. These wires control the lid switch on your Kenmore washing machine. To disconnect, grasp the white plastic clip and pull gently.
#
7

Remove the washing machine cabinet. Tilt the cabinet towards you, and then lift the entire cabinet up and off of its platform.


It appears your lid switch has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

How do I acces the lid switch on my kenmore washer


The following link explains step-by-step how to access and/or replace the lid switch on a Kenmore top loader:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

Most lid switches are located under the right hand side of the top panel. Some, are located adjacent to either lid hinge. In any case, you still need to remove the washer exterior case to access it. The switch is held in place with a couple of mounting screws with a ground wire attached. This is a very simple repair, but if you experience any difficutlies please let me know. I hop this helps you.

How do I replace the lid switch on my kenmore series 80 washer?


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

See the section on the console and cabinet and you'll see where the switch is located.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet to gain access to the Lid Switch.

How to replace kenmore elite washer model 110 16962503 lid switch


Hi,

Let me offer you a generic solution for most of the Kenmore washers :-

There are 2 screws that secure the console to the cabinet top. The are located in the front or rear corners, and on a Kenmore, may be hidden behind the end caps. Remove the screws, and tilt the cabinet backwards. Remove the 2 gold clips, and disconnect the wiring harness. Tilt the cabinet forward, and off of the base. The lid switch can now be accessed from inside the cabinet (I sit inside).


Hope i helped you.

Thanks.

Kenmore washer 24642300


The lid switch has failed. To replace lid switch;
REMOVE POWER, lift the console by removing the trim on either side. Grasp the top of the trim and pull forward to expose a screw. Remove both screws and lift console.

1. You will find a lid switch connector (white in color). Unplug the switch from the connector.

2. There will be two brass colored clips. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver down and away from you and the clip will release.

3. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Tilt and slide cabinet forward to remove.

The lid switch can now be accessed and replaced.

If you need further assistance, let me know
