To access the lid switch, REMOVE POWER, lift the console by one of three ways.
1. Look in the back of the console, in each corner there will be a screw, unscrew until the console can be pushed forward.
2. The trim on either side can be pried off from the top, grasp and pull forward to expose to expose a screw.
3. insert a putty knife under each corner, push to release a latch. With console lifted:

1. You will find a lid switch connector (white or gray 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.

I have a kenmore elite and I replaced coupling and still does not spin


a common problem with whirlpool/kenmore top loaders is the lidswitch. The washer will fill and agitate, but will not go into spin if it thinks the lid is open. This is a safety feature. The only thing you can do is replace the lidswitch.

After the washer machine fills with water it does not drain or spin, the clocking mechinism /switch does not match the cycle.

Look for signs of a broken lidswitch.
Flip up the controls unplug the lidswitch and check it for continuity or jump it out to see if the washer will start working. As far as the dial indicator being broken To replace that you yank out the retaining rod in the rear to release the knob then you can replace the skirt easily2cc26e6.jpg

Kenmore Washing stops at spin cycle.


It sounds like your lidswitch. If it spins after you open and shut the lid, you must be jarring the lidswitch. This is a safety so kids can't open the machine while it is spinning fast. Just replace the lidswitch.

I replaced the lidswitch on a Kenmore 80 series washer. Nothing


Possible bad pressure switch. Turn unit on and jump out 2 wires at a time (3 wires go to it). See if any of your combinations get unit running (one of them will cause water valve to open); if so then that is your problem. Thanks, please leave feedback or contact me again for more info if you need it.
