The lid switch on my Kenmore 110 had broken. I removed the two snap-on end caps from the control panel, exposing two phillips head screws. remove the screws and tilt the control panel back. Then remove the two large clips that fasten the cabinet to the back of the washer. Tilting the cabinet forward allows easy access to the lid switch, wiring, and connector assembly. 1/4 inch nutdriver needed for the ground wire fastener. Lid switch is mounted with two phillips head screws and is easily replaced.

I started the repair by reading online about possible causes. Once it proved to be the switch I used your site to identify the right switch. Your site was the only one that had picture of the switch for easy id. I then read about other repairs and followed their lead. Easy.
Removed the back panel and cabinet. Removed the pump and separated the gear box and motor. Replaced coupler, reassembled. Lid switch removed/replaced very easy, as was lid screw.
Removed control panel screws (2) pulled up CP and pulled back washer case and removed old switch, replaced with new switch, added a rubber washer on each screw to help shock of lid slamming down, re assembled replaced hoses and tested for leaks. Easy Thanks for the site and the parts
