Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Your model may have one of two types of fabric dispensers. Each one comes off differently. I added an image below showing how to remove each one.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Anonymous; it appears that your washer does not have fabric dispenser by the images you sent. The cap is not supposed be removed nor is fabric softener supposed be poured in the top of the agitator. In order to clean the fabric softener from the agitator you will need to remove the bolt if see one down the center or you may just see a 1/2 inch square recessed area. If you see a 1/2 inch square; you will need to use a 1/2 inch ratchet extension and place the square (male) end down into the square opening and removing the spring retainer by turning it counter clockwise. Once you have it removed, grasp the augur and lift if up and off. Clean the fabric softener out with hot or warm water.

(we just moved to this rented house and this is the washer thats here...) oh well..... I'll have to figure something out to avoid the stains..... thank you!

Thank you for your question.

By what you have stated, it sounds like a lid switch failure. The lid switch has to be closed for the drain and spin cycle on your washer to work. If the lid switch is faulty, it will fill and wash but nothing else. A quick check you can do is to jump the lid switch and see if it will drain. If the washer operates, the lid switch needs to be replaced.

To jump the lid switch you need to unplug the washer and open the console. I have provided you with the instructions for opening the console below. Once you have the console open, locate the connector for the lid switch. Place an insulated jumper between the gray and white wires. Not the green it is a ground and will cause a short. After inserting the jumper make sure it will not touch anything metal, plug the washer in. Start the washer in a drain cycle. If the washer drains and spins, you need to replace the lid switch. Do not leave the jumper in while you are waiting for the part. The jumper is only of the test.

To you replace the lid switch you have to remove the cabinet of the washer. The instructions for that are also in the image below. Once the cabinet is removed you can take the screws out securing the lid switch and remove the harness from the clips along the underside of the cabinet. Then reinstall the lid switch in the reverse order. Before you reassemble the cabinet, please read the instructions for installing the cabinet provided in the image.

Please click here to watch a video on how to replace the lid switch.

A:

The tub is made of plastic and it can not rust through and leak. The leak could be from the water pump or one of the pump hoses. In order to locate the source of the leak will require removing the lid switch and washer cabinet. You will need to leave the lid switch connected to the wire harness. You will also have to energize the lid switch in order for the washer to operate. In order to remove the washer cabinet the console must be placed in the service position. I added the instructions in the image below. NOTE: Use extreme caution with running the washer with the cabinet removed. Do not touch any wires or moving parts while the washer is plugged in and running.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
