It most likely broke and you have to take your front panel loose (panel with the timer) There should be 2 screws in the front or back left and right corners. Loosen those then fold the panel back and your lid switch should be on the left side. It just clips in. If your washer is older it is under the case and then you have to take the case off. Do the same steps as above but pop out the 2 brass case clips behind the panel then lift the case off.

My estate washing machine will not spin out, all of the other cycles work correctly.

Try to clean the magnetic door switch,some windex and a paper towell.Just do the part on the door or lid and where the lid meets the top of the magnet.Make sure this is not loose and is seated in the machine.

You may need to unplug machine and remove the door switch,take both wires and tie them togther so they make contact.Then try a wash cycle or try the spin cycle.
The door switches in the estate washers fall apart and get corroded and can stop the spin cycle.

If the machine works with the switch taken out then you will need to get a new one from whirlpool.

Lid Switch

HI, The part# is 3949238. There are two ways to replace this switch. The easiest is to remove the two screws holding the lid switch. Pull the switch out enough that you can clip the wires at the switch. Cut the harness off of the new switch leaving enough wire to put wire nuts on connecting them together.
The other way to change the switch is to remove the cabinet. Here is how:
Removing the cabinet. UNPLUG the washer. There are two screws holding the control panel to the cabinet. Most models the screw are in front but, some models have the screws in back. They are on each end. Now raise the control panel up and let it rest on the hinges. Unplug the lid switch harness and locate the clips on each side (bronze in color) and release them.
Now the cabinet will lift off the frame and you can see the lid switch.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Can't figure out how to get the washer apart to put in the lid switch.

If this is a Whirlpool made machine (which includes Sears Kenmore), there's a video here showing how to get the cabinet off for different models.

Whirlpool top load washer gets stuck on spin and stops

your lid switch is most likely can this by taking two screws from face of machine and flip face will see a disconnect plug on machine that goes to your lid switch.unplug machine and unplug disconnect at top of washer under the face,you will need a jumper wire to put in 1st and 3rd hole in your disconnected.plug machine back in and see if it will go into can also put your finger on lid switch and push in on it and if you dont hear it clicking or if you dont see the finger to push in then it is definately lid switch.

Have you tightened the screws on the hinges? If they get loose, the lid switch will only get an intermitent contact. There are 2 phillips screws on each side of the lid.
