Question and Answers

Q:

How do I release the transmission from the tub on a Kenmore washer?

A:

I assume that you have the washer cabinet removed. I added an image to view to aide in identifying the pump (key#22), motor (key#19), pump and motor retainers (key#21&17) and the motor coupler (key#13).

Removing and replacing the motor coupler (key#13) between the transmission and motor does not require separating the transmission from the tub. In order to replace the motor coupler (key#13) the drain pump (key#22) and motor (key#19) are the only two (2) components that would need to be removed.

I added a link below with instructions on replacing the motor coupler.

Q:

Kenmore series 70 washer lid switch is bad

A:

By the symptoms of the washer, I believe you are correct with the diagnoses of a failed lid switch. I added the instructions in the image below on how to remove the washer cabinet. your washer has two end caps on the console that have to be removed to access the screws that hold the console down. After placing the console in the service position, you will need to disconnect the lid switch harness connector from the top and then pop and remove the two gold colored cabinet retainer clips off. Now you remove the washer cabinet. Walk the cabinet away from the washer and you now have access to remove and replace the lid switch. Here is a link to order the lid switch

Q:

H2O not stopping when filling - fills to the top, runs over until we shut it off. Started doing it on 3rd level then moved to all 4 settings. A sensor?

A:

If the water stops when you push the timer in then the likely failure is one of the following:

  • Water level pressure switch (key#2)
  • Air hose has pulled off from the pressure switch
  • Air hose has developed a hole

You will need to drain the washer and then disconnect the power cord.

  • The console (key#26) will need to be placed in the service position by removing two hidden (2) screws, one (1) screw located at the bottom of the left hand end cap (key#7) and one (1) screw located at the bottom of the right hand end cap (key#10).

  • In order to access the two (2) hidden screws, the left hand end cap trim (key#8) and the right hand end cap trim (key#15) will need to be removed.

  • To remove the end cap trim (key#8&15), place you finger behind the trim at the very top and bend it up enough to clear the console and then hinge it towards the front and off.

  • Remove the hidden screw under each end cap trim at the bottom of the end caps. Slide the console forwards about 1/4 inch and the raise it upwards and hinge it over the rear panel.

  • Disconnect the 3 wire lid switch harness plug located on the top. Pop the two (2) gold colored cabinet clips (key#6) off as shown in the image below.

  • Place the tip of a flat tipped screw driver down into the first valley and then push the handle end to the rear of the washer to pop off the cabinet clips.

  • Open the lid and grab the opening and tilt the top of the washer cabinet forwards just a few degrees and then walk it backwards and off.
Reverse the procedure to reinstall the cabinet.
