    I have the same problem! My washer (Whirlpool Ultimate Care II ) agitated fine and then stopped. I figure I need to change the lid switch, but dont know how. How do I know if it's the timer? How can I bypass the lidswitch to find out? Where is the timer?? I used this site before to change the agitator dogs and all was well until this event. HELP!!

    I have the same problem. My washer -Whirlpool Ultimate Care II-LSQ9544O - washed the load -agitated, and then stopped. No rinse, no drain, no spin. I figure I need to change the lid switch, but how? And where can I get a diagram to see how to get to it.I want to bypass the lidswitch to check the timer, how do I do that? Where is the timer and how do I check it? HELP!!! I guess the thing I need most is a diagram of my washer so i cna figure out where all the parts are and how to get to them and then to know how to test and then change them.

Ok folks to change the lid switch on these and many top loading Whirlpool, Maytag, Kenmore, etc is quite easy.

Steps to replace the lid switch:

1. Remove unit from AC.
2. Remove the loading door from the unit, or using some duct tape tape it closed.
3. Using a small flat bladed screwdriver find the 2 release catches on the front of the unit between the top cover and front panel. These are just snap claps to hold the top cover down. To release the top you will need to compress the latch using the screwdriver. Start with one side, then the other. Once you have released both clips the lid will lift up just like the hood of your car.
4. You will now be able to remove the lid switch from the unit.
5. Install the new switch and close the hood of the unit.
6. Test the repair by running the unit though a complete cycle.

A great place to order the replacement part for the unit is:

www.appliancepartspros.com

They ship same day on orders placed before 3pm EST. Overnight shipping is available, however I usually opt for the 2-3 day ground shipping and save the money.

If this switch replacement does not take care of the problem, you might need to replace the control board located under the front panel. This replacement is also very easy and takes about 10 min from start to finish.

Hope this helps everyone. Cheers,

Keith

Washer stopping mid-cycle


Push down on lid. You may have a bad lid switch. Start machine and press the switch down with something like a screwdriver and see if the motor runs.

Washer won't start spin cycle


sounds like a lid assy issue, can you hear a "clicking" just before the lid is closed, try opening nad closing a few times listening for a distinct "click" if not the machine doesnt think the door is closed and for safety reasons wont spin and drain.
