Remove the two screws holding the control panel down. On newer kenmores they are under the covers on the ends that can be removed with a flathead screwdriver at the top. Pull the control panel up and forward and it will flip up over the top of the machine. There will be two metal clips on either side of the case that can be removed with a flathead. Then tip the casing foward and it will come off of the machine.

How do I open the washer top to replace the lid switch?


look at your owner's manual, or the troubleshooting sheet on the back of the washer.

Generally, there's 2-4 hex screws on the back top of the washer to remove, and then the top will lift and slide off....To a point. Remember that you'll still have wires connected to the top and bottom of the washer.

It's also important to stress to UNPLUG YOUR WASHER, before starting this, to minimize the chance of electrical shock.

It fills with water then shut off. So if we hit the lid a few times and turn the dial our selfs it will kick back on.


The most likely failure is the lid switch. It can be found as item 11 here:
for model LSQ9564J (Q0)
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=257590

UNIT UN-PLUGGED

To gain access to the lid switch you lift the top by releasing the spring lips with a putty knife. The are about 4 inches in from the front corners. Press in and lift the top from the center front of the tub access. You have to release both clips to lift the top. Then
lift it straight up pivoting from rear.

Then it is a matter of removing the lid switch mounting screws, disconnecting the connector and replacing the switch.

Closer view of replacement switch:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=3100003

This should get things back to normal. I would use a meter and check for continuity on the old switch before ordering a replacement. The old switch could just have been loose or the lid switch actuation tab bent down too far. (Lift it up and test lid)

Thanks for choosing FixYa

Agitator will not spin


check the lid switch first,lift the lid a couple of inches and close it down,if it clicks the lid switch is good and you most likely broke the motor coupling.remove the twoscrews that hold down the top console,lift it up and with a screw driver pop the metal clips and disconnect the lid switch wires in the middle,it's a white platic connector,now remove the whole cover of the washer,down the bottom you'll see the pump.with a screw driver pop the two metal clips and remove the pump,next remove the tow screws and clips holding the motor in place and pull out the motor,on the back you'll find the coupling,there should be two pieces of white plastic with three arms on each piece and a black piece of rubber that goes in between the two white pieces,remove the old coupling and tap on the new pieces one on the motor shaft and the other on the tranny shaft,slide the rubber piece on the tranny part of coupling and then line up the other piece that's on the motor shaft slide it together and put everything back,it's easier than it sounds,let me know how you make out,if you sent the model number i could of gave you the part number,i think it's PL337

Washing machine stops mid-cycle, water doesn't drain


Sounds like you have a bad lid switch, or the plastic plunger on the lid that engages the lid switch is broke. if the plunger is broke, it is cheap, and only 2 screws to remove and put new one on. if that is not broke, check the lid switch. This model is a lid switch, and lid lock in one. You can test it before replacing it if you have a meter. you need to hinge the lid up to check and replace the lid switch. use a putty knife, on each side between the top and top of the front panel. slide the putty knife in one side, it will hit a bracket if your in the right spot. press in, and lift on that side of the top. do the same on other side, just don't let go of the first side or it will latch again. then swing the top back, the back side is on hinges. the lid switch is on the right side attached to the top. unplug washer, remove the 2 wires on the switch and check continuity. there should be continuity, or "open" when the lid is closed, and no continuity, or "closed" when you open the lid. if it is "closed" even when lid is closed, replace the lid switch. let me know if you have any further questions, shane.

Lid switch replacement


unplug washer first. dont know your washer make but some of the older units the top comes off by removing screws from a bracket just below the control panel on the back of washer. lift top which will allow you to remove screws that hold switch into place. wires should unplug.

Kenmore Elite washer will not agitate after fills with water. It appears that the switch in the lid is broke. Tried to lift up the top of the washer (where knobs are...but could remove all but the big...


The knobs do not have to be removed......

To access the lid switch, first lift the console by one of three ways.
  • 1. The trim on either side can be pried off from the top, grasp and pull forward to expose to expose a screw.
  • 2. Look in the back of the console, in each corner there will be a screw, unscrew until the console can be pushed forward.
  • 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 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.

If you need further assistance, let me know
