how to remove hose 11623312303 Kenmore Vacuum cleaner


Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when needing to replace the hose on your vacuum. I did look into the model number you have provided and I have found information that will assist you in the removal. 

  • You will need to take the screws out of the handle assembly. Most have from 3 to 5 phillips screws.
  • Some models have a #10 torx screw which requires a torx screw driver to remove them. Before you start check each handle assembly you make sure you have the driver to remove those screws.
  • Once you have the screws removed be careful when removing the two half's that you don't loose the parts that are captured by the two half's. Also you will need to remove the cuff for the hose assembly.
  • You will need to small flat bladed screwdrivers (pocket type) to remove the cuff.
  • Locate the molded seam in the rubber on the cuff and slide/pry the screwdrivers in under the cuff to release the molded locking tab about an inch into the cuff on both sides. Once released slide the cuff up the hose. Then you can release the hose from the handle.
  • On the cannister end of the hose you will need to locate the seam where it swivels and again locate the mold seam line and push the little screwdrivers in until you release the locking tab and you can slide the cuff up the hose.
  • Before changing out the hoses observe the locations of the wiring in the docking channels in the handles and swivel ends. The wire connections are the push in type and match the wire colors on each.

Let me know if this helps. Thank you for your question. Have a great day.

How to replace the hose on my vacuum?


The rubber part on the end of your old hose is called a hose adapter. The adapter has a slightly raised molded joint on it. Place a small screwdriver at each end of the molded joint and push it underneath the joint 1- 1 1/2 inches. These screwdrivers will release a tab underneath the molded joint and the hose adapter will slide off the hose. You will need to perform this operation to both of the hose adapters.

The hose adapters will slide on to the new hose and lock without you having to use the screwdrivers.

The wires will slide out of the adapter with the hose, and the wires on the new hose will slide back in.
