Question and Answers

Q:

washer stopped working

A:

Thank you for choosing ManageMyLife.com. I understand how frustrating it can be when the washer doesn't work properly. Try to manually advance the timer on your washing machine. If the washer works and completes the cycle once you advance the dial, the timer will need to be replaced. If not, it is likely your lid switch that needs replacing. I have included instructions below on how to replace the switch.
SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.

1. Unplug the Kenmore washing machine from the wall outlet.

2. Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the two screws that secure the control console to the top of the washer. Flip the control console back and allow it to rest in the service position.

3. Insert a flathead screwdriver into the rear mounting clips located on the rear top corners. Press in and the pull back to release the clips from the top panel.

4. Disconnect the lid switch wiring harness located on the top rear of the Kenmore washer. Press in on the plastic tab and pull the wiring harness apart.

5. Open the washer lid and tilt the rear of the cabinet up toward you. Lift the cabinet to release it from the bottom tabs. Move it away from the washer base. Keep the washer lid open to access the mounting screws for the lid switch.

6. Pull the wires away from the clips under the top panel. Unhook the connector from the washer cabinet.

7. Use a screwdriver to remove the two screws that mount the switch to the inside of the washer. Pull the lid switch away from the washer. Insert a screwdriver between the lid switch actuator and the lid. Turn the blade of the screwdriver to pop the actuator off of the lid.

8. Insert the new plastic actuator into the lid. Press it in until it locks in place.

9. Position the new lid switch in place. Secure it with the two attaching screws. Make sure the lid switch wire is fastened into the cabinet clips and the connector is in place at the rear top of the washer cabinet.

10. Reinstall the Kenmore washer cabinet back over the washer base and tub. Press the brass clips into place that hold the washer cabinet and rear panel together. Connect the wire harness from the control panel to the lid switch by pressing it in until it locks in place.

11. Flip the control console back onto the top of the washer. Secure it with the two attaching screws. Be careful when tightening down to avoid cracking the plastic trim.

12. Plug the Kenmore washing machine back into the wall outlet.
