Water won't go out. How do I get to the switch? Kenmore washer model # XXXXX stock # XXXXX
Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

ok that's a common problem and it means that your lid switch is bad and doesn't think that your lid is shut. It will stop the washer from advancing for safety reasons if it doesn't think the lid is shut. You'll want to order and replace the lid switch to fix the issue. Below is a link to the part you'll need to order as well as a video you can watch to see how to take the washer apart because you'll need to remove the entire outer shell to replace the lid switch.
