You can replace the switch, it appears, without lifting the lid. I've ordered the repair manual (LIT4314044) but I can feel the connector and wires. It appears that the lid switch can be replaced without taking anything apart. There does appear to be a screw on the back that holds the ground in place.

Kenmore washer stopped dead in mid load.


Check the lid switch. You should hear it click when you open and close the lid. If you don't hear a click, replace the switch.

Hello Dbriner,
It would appear that the lid switch is defective and is in need of replacement. I included a video showing basically how to replace it (It is a series 80 machine but that is minor).The steps are the same.

Broken switch on Kenmore washing machine


If you are referring to the lid switch, you will need to remove the exterior washer case in order to access it. This is a lot easier than it sounds. The following link explains step-by-step how to access and replace a lid switch:

Kenmore series 70 washer won't stop agitating when lid Is lifted.


I have a Series 80 and when I lift the lid it does not stop aggitating when in wash mode. When I lift the lid it does stop spinning when in rinse mode. As designed.

To stop wash-mode aggitation at lid-lift, using the existing lid switch and other electrical components, is not easy and not recommended. I can think of a way to do it (triple-pole lid switch) but I will not detail the idea .. for safety concerns.

To stop aggitation, simply use the main settings dial control. You'll save money and possibly prevent a fire hazard!

Install the switch


Anthony, you usually need to pull the 3-sided cabinet off the machine to get that part installed. Some can do it from the top, but having the cabinet off is the easiest. You have to open the control panel up first, then unhook the lid switch connector harness, then pop out the two straps that secure the cabinet to the back/bulkhead. Now the while cabinet/top of the washer lifts away by tipping it up and forward towards you. Now you will see that lid switch bracket assembly you want to replace is easy to get at.

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
