Kenmore series 80 washer need to know what the clip looks like that the peg on the lid fits into to make the washer work.

it's not a clip but a lever actuator attached to the lid switch.  best idea is to replace the lid switch.  not expensive and not hard to do.  usually only 2 screws and a two wire plug-in connector.

How do i get the spin off the kenmore 80 series washing machine to see if the belt is broken.

This is a direct drive machine. It has a coupler rather than a belt. If it will not agitate or spin, your coupler is bad. You will need to remove the case to get top it. To do so, remove the plastic covers from each end of the console. Now remove the screws from each end that are under the caps. Pull and lift the panel, flip backwards so it's out of your way. Now unplug the wires from the middle and un-clip the clips on each end. Tilt back on the case and lift off. On the bottom you will see the water pump. take the clips off but do not remove hoses. Just push the pump to the right so that you can get to the motor. Remove the screws from the two clips holding the motor on unplug the wires from the right side. Now unclip motor with your hand under it. Turn motor around and you will see one piece of the coupler on the shaft, another piece will be on the transmission and the third piece is black rubber that gos between the other two pieces. This is what you will need to replace. (Do not drive the two pieces on the shaft past flush) I use a 1/2" nut driver to drive the pieces on the shafts. Now you can put machine back together. Your problem is now fixed. Good luck.

I have a Kenmore 80 Series washer that started leaking just a little a few weeks ago. Checked all the exterior hoses and they are fine. Today it leaked worse. It appears to be coming from the front not the...

You have a hole in the water pump.
You need to remove the control panel.
Locate two gold clips, one on each side of the unit.
Remove clips, open the lid and pull the cabinet toward you. Water pump is right in front at the bottom.

Wiz, That black piece of foam is just a sound dampening strap, no big deal. This is a hard one, I see a lot of these vibrate when there is a false floor. Here are some things to check: makes sure the front legs are locked with the nut. Check to see that all the springs are attached and the plate is centered, I will attach a photo. Depending on whether the machine is walking or just the tub banging, it could be the drive block for the basket. You will have to remove the cabinet or tip it back to check the springs.

Kenmore 80 series lid switch

First of all, unplug your washer. You will need to remove the console in order to get to the lid switch. 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. Or, you may have a console that has removable end caps. They can be removed by gently prying up on the top of them from the rear on each side. You may have to use a small screwdriver for this. The caps should pop right off. Once removed, you will need to loosen a screw under each cap. Once you have the console loosned, 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.

  The whole cabinet comes off on this washer.  Too remove you need to remove 2 screws in console.  These may be in back on the right and left ends of console or may be in front on each end.  If you can-not find them they might be hidden under plastic end trim.  They are located in front of console on both ends.  To remove pry them up from the inner lower edge and peel towards outside of washer.  Then remove screws and shake console back and forth while pulling up.  Console will hinge back.
   Remove to gold colored clips with screwdriver prying at front.  Make note of the position of these clips.  Unplug lid switch harness and pivot cabinet back and off.  The usual spot for a leak is the pump.  Check for stain coming from area on pump where motor shaft enters.  The pump can be removed by taking off the 2 clips.  Also check small diameter hose that enters side of wash tub in back side.  Make sure this is attached to tub.

Lyzz, someone is going to have to check the pump for debris in it. It is not hard to get off, 2 clips and two clamps. You also want to check the drain hose from the pump right at the point where it exits the washer. I have found socks and other items stuck right at that point. You are going to have to remove the cabinet to get at the pump. Yours will have a cover under the console where you will have to disconnect some hoses. I will attach a couple of photo's to guide back.
