Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
Disconnect the power first.
Many washers have spring clips holding the lid in place, and a putty knife or scraper can be shimmied in to compress the clips and open the lid for service.
Some units, esp old Maytags, have 2 screws near the bottom of the front panel, and removing them will let the front panel tilt out, granting access to the top cover from the front.
Some later Whirlpool and Kenmore units have a cabinet that comes off in one piece. You'll need to remove 2 screws holding the splash panel to the top of the washer. Flip the panel up giving access to the timer/switches area. Disconnect the white plastic wire connector, then use a screwdriver to pop the metal clips in the corner. Set these aside, and the whole cabinet will tilt forward, and can then be lifted off the washer base/back. Space to work will be an advantage, for this type of cabinet.
