Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9564J Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Lid Switch I have a kenmore washing machine model number 11024732300. I just pick up a new switch but this one looks differnt than the one I took out. I was given part number 3949238. It has a metal tab on top but other than that it apprears to be the same. My real question has to do with removing the top panel so that I can access the switch. Can I just pop the end tabs underneath the top panel to lift the top up?

First of all, unplug your washer before attempting to remove the console. I believe your washer has release tabs under the console at each front corner. Simply slide a putty knife straight in from the front at each corner and push in while lifting up. You should feel the release tabs push in and the console will pop up. Once you have the console removed, carefully lift it up and lay it back over the rear panel of the washer in its resting position. Be careful not to damage the small plastic hinges that hold it in place. Now you will need to perform the following steps: 1. Under the console you will find the lid switch connector. Unplug the switch from the connector. 2. There will be two brass colored clips. You will need to remove these to remove the machine casing. 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 away from you while holding into the groove 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). Now pull the case from the frame by lifting from the back first. You do not have to remove it all the way from the frame. Just enough to gain access to the switch. All there is to the switch is a couple of screws holding it in and a ground wire. It's a pretty easy repair job. Once you've completed your switch installation, make sure you get the case back on the frame correctly by following these steps: 1. While looking down through the lid opening, place the front lip of the machine case UNDER the washer frame and start leaning it back onto the frame. There are four small cleats that must fit into four slots on the case or the washer will vibrate. Make sure the frame is seated properly, lean forward from the front of the washer, grasp both sides of the rear panel and pull towards the case. The rear panel should be seated and flush with the casing before inserting the retaining clips. 2. Insert the brass-colored clips into the slot on the washer rear panel first, then push straight down into the opening on the top of the washer with some force. If you have the case seated correctly, the clips will snap back in. 3. Make sure you plug the connector from the console back into the lid switch receptacle and close the console. I hope you find this helpful. If you have any questions please let me know by posting comments.

I have a Kenmore Ultra Fabric Care washing machine it will wash and it will do the rinse cycle it will not do the spin cycle

Is this machine brand new or recently new, The machine will not spin if all the water did not drain, there a float switch when the water level gets down to a certain point then it will activate the solenoid valves to spin, make sure the machine is level, it's really difficult problem without looking at it first, It could be a number of things that's wrong, Is the machine still under warranty. It could also be in the dails or a wire's off, this the best I could do right now, get back to me and Let me know if this works for you. [email protected]

You can replace the switches very easily, and you can order the parts you need from Sears on line. BUT you need to know the full model number of your unit to do it.

Find the part on the diagram that you need to replace and then look it up on the chart to find out what it costs.

How to replace the lid switch for a top load kenmore washing machine model 110.92480200 part#1170635?

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.92480200

Look at the top and cabinet section and you should see how the switch mounts.

A concern that I have is that the part number on the Sears site for your washer is

Switch, lid Number:3352630Substitution:285671which isn't the part number that you quote.
