Lid switch for admiral washing machine (13 years old)

Hello. My washing machine is stopping between speed cycles (between the 6 min mark and the rinse cycle). If I push down slighly on the lid, right at the lid switch it goes back on unitl the end of they load. I am not sure if it requires a new lid switch or just needs to be cleaned and or adjusted. How can I open the top of the ADMIRAL AL46000 to get to the switch?

Thanks.

From description it looks more like you have to replace the lid switch, if you have to push it down, then the contact inside is broken.

You find replacements here, just insert the model number.

Try resetting the mainboard by removing the wall plug overnight. May also be a faulty lid switch if it is a top loader.

    Model 9156200 top loading washing machine


    the lid switch may be loose or broken it happens to me it was washing but never rinse i found out that it was a loose switch this switch prevents the rinse cycle from working with the lid open because of the high speed rinse ,some machines dont work at all, a loose switch makes the machine think the lid is open even if it is closed.good luck.

    Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Washing Machine Rinse cycle not workin


    Most of these spin related problems are attributed to a lid switch malfunction. A washer that fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle and drain is commonly caused by a lid switch. The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

    http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

    If the switch requires replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. Just use your model number as your search criteria. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price.

    Let me know if you need further assistance. I hope this helps you.

    No cold rinse, only hot


    Either the wires have come loose on the water valve or you have a defective water valve.Open the lid and look at the water valve. Are all wires connected?
    If yes, replace the water valve.
