ck to be sure drain hose is not more than 6-8 inches into standpipe ..standpipe is 30-36 inches to top from floor ..drain hose does not fit too tight in standpipe any of the above conditions may cause water to siphon out during wash or rinse resulting in not enough water in tub to carry lint away during drain

we just bypass them,unless your going to stick your hand in there during spin cycle,-unplug washer,remove the 2 head screws 1 on each side of the head,flip the head up,you will see the lid switch jack in the middle of the top of washer, unplug it,cut the 2 outside wires and wire nut them together,plug back in,put the head back,plug in washer and your done,this way it cost you nothing to fix,the other way would be around $40,let me know how you do-mike

HI It sounds like the spin basket drive is going bad. If it was the lid switch, you would get no sound. Let me know if I can assist you further.

SOURCE: replace lid switch
remove the screws on the control panel
pull the panel forward to unseat it then under it pop the clips that hold the top to the back of the washer the rest is self explanitive
