97962 is not the complete model number; it's missing the manufacturer's prefix and the version suffix. SearsPartsDirect lists several laundry center models that start with 417.97962. One parts list is here: https://www.searspartsdirect.com/model/hegp8tulfg-000582/kenmore-41797962700-laundry-center-parts .The lid lock assembly for this washer is shown on the lower cabinet/top diagram as part 50, https://www.searspartsdirect.com/product/26x50rk2z5-0026-417/id-134101800 .

I hope this helps.

You first have to remove the 2 phillip head screws on your face panel.There is one on each side located about 1 inch from the front corner.tThese 2 screws are holding down the entire front timer panel.Ok,now lift up & forward at the same time so you can swing back this timer panel and get it to balance back out of the way.Now, it becomes a little harder,locate the harness that your lid/spin switch is on by unscrewing the 2 screws on the spin switch.Pulling the bad switch away from your cabinet will expose the harness ,that way you will see where it is plugged in.After unplugging it your now ready to plug the new one in and just tuck in the harness in the cabinet.Flip the timer panel back down and screw it back down.Your done !!!

Any recalls on Kenmore Model # 110.20022012 Washing machine?


I think that your "LID Switch" is broken, go to www.sears.com/parts and put your model number in and you'll see the lid switch listed.

With my old washer I was able to open the lid and it continued agitating. My new one does not allow me to open the lid while it is agitating. Is there a locking mechanism?


Whirlpool / Kenmore washers use a "Lid Switch" as a safety device.

On older models the switch would stop the spin cycle when the lid is raised.

Newer models stop both the Agitate and Spin cycles.

If this is a Sears washer see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.#######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

There are videos at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html that will walk you thru testing and replacing this part. It may be a different model but the replacement will be the same.

It sounds as if your lid switch is jammed or broken.

Go to the section on the Sears site for the Top and Cabinet parts and you should see the Lid Switch.

See the following for how to release the console and remove the cabinet to gain access to the Lid Switch.

This assumes that you have a KENMORE top load, direct drive, neutral drain washers are made Whirlpool.

The part that I think you're speaking about is called the Lid Switch.

The washer on my double stack won't drain or spin.

Without a complete model number, I'm guessing but usually, washers have a lid lock built in that prevents the washer from draining or spinning unless the lid is closed.

If the lid lock is defective, the washer probably won't go into spin mode.

Check yours for the lock, where it attaches and replace it. It's probably not too expensive.

If you un-plug the washer and pop off the end caps, you should see a screw under each endcap.

Remove the screws and the console should tilt backward. Unplug the lid switch from the console.

Using a screwdriver, snap off the clips holding the cabinet on, tilt it forward and it should come.

You should have access to the lid switch with the cabinet off and the console tilted backward.

It sounds as if your lid switch is jammed or broken.

Go to the section on the Sears site for the Top and Cabinet parts and you should see #9 Lid Switch.

See the section on the Control Panel and look at Item # 8. This is a clip that holds the control panel onto the cabinet.

If you un-plug the washer and slip a thin putty knife between the cabinet and control panel where the clip is, the clip should release allowing you to tilt the control panel back to gain access to the Lid Switch.

Need a lid


After being asked to call a number of different phone numbers, I was finally able to order a lid for this from the company that manufacturers this slow cooker for Sears.

1-800-361-4639

$25.90, shipped to the US (the company is located in Canada) for the lid.

The part # is: 1003kj.
Note that the Sears model number for the slow cooker is KKC275.
The Sears item # is 68332 (even though the plate on the cooker and manual both say that the MODEL number is 68332).

Hope this helps,

Brian
