If your washer is a kenmore /whirlpool then you need to flip up the control panel after removing screws on either side of the console. Some models have plastic shoulders that hide the screws some have the screws int he read. Flip up the console and unplug the lid switch quick connect. Pop the 2 clips on the rear of the washer and tip the body foward.
On a GE you get the front panel off by compressing spring clips between the top and front. then remove screws from the facing that hold down the top. You will then wiggle out the top and unplug the disconnect. On a maytag washer you remove the control console to get to the lid switch.

Whirlpool cabrio washer lid repair by kevin miller


Hello, Joan -

Are you referring to the review by ChrisG on Amazon.com regarding the Whirlpool W10349235 Lid Assembly Washer (link):
https://www.amazon.com/Whirlpool-W10349235-Lid-Assembly-Washer/dp/B00LTYSPNK

This is a copy of ChrisG's review there:

[Quote]
USE DIFFERENT PARTS AND THE PROBLEM WILL BE SOLVED FOR GOOD
July 7, 2016

Don't waste your time replacing your cracked lid with yet another lid that will crack. The tension in the springs is too much for the plastic frame of the lid.

The CORRECT FIX was recommended by Kevin Miller on the fixya website.

Use lid part # 8572026. It's a completely solid metal lid. Use two hinges, part # 8563964, since the existing hinges wont work with the new lid. Use four screws, part # W10119828, for mounting the new lid to the new hinges.

I used the above parts that Kevin recommended and it worked perfectly. Check my before and after photos.

Replacing it was easy. I simply removed the two screws on each side of the lid connecting it to the hinge. Pulled the lid off. One of the hinges pulled out easily. The other I had to spray with lubricant and eventually it came out.

The installation was just the reverse. Slide the hinges into the holes of the lid and into the holes in the washer and then drive in the screws through the lid into the hinges.

BTW, at one point my washer was spinning and did sound like a jet engine but it was still covered so they came and replaced the bearings. So I am good for now.

Note: I have not been able to find Kevin Miller's answer on Fixya.com. Unfortunately, ChrisG did not provide a link to Kevin Miller's answer on Fixya.

Water starts to pass through but then stops and error alarms start


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Lid Switch Assembly If the washer stops mid cycle the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer stops mid cycle the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.
Water Inlet Valve If the washer stops mid cycle the water inlet valve cold water side may have failed. Most washers have a cold water rinse and so if they can't fill with cold water they just sit indefinitely waiting for the cold water to enter. If there is cold water to the water inlet valve and the cold water works in other parts of the cycle - or to make warm water - the valve is not the problem.

Main Control Board If the washer stops mid-cycle the main control board might be defective. This is not common. Check other causes first such as the lid or door switch and other components.

Timer If the washer stops mid cycle the timer might be defective. This part is often misdiagnosed, check other components before replacing this timer.

I have a Oasis, model 110 270 826 02, serial #CT3270410, that I just had the touch pad ERC control part (8564392) replaced last week. Today when I went to use it, the DU comes up on the control panel...


The DU error code indicates that the control detects a problem with the washer door (lid) unlocking. In this situation, the failure is normally caused by a failed door lock assembly. I provided technical information on this failure in the first image below. You can use this information if necessary to verify a failed lid lock assembly. The control is apparently sending the voltage to the lid lock mechanism to unlock the door but is not sensing that the lid is unlocked. There is a chance that you have a wiring failure or a bad control board so it is best to thoroughly diagnose the failure if possible before replacing components. Be sure that you unplug the washer before accessing internal components. If you determine that you have a failed lid lock assembly, you can use the procedure shown in the second image below to replace this component.

Accessing and replacing the lid switch to a Kenmore 70 series automatic washer.


  • unplug the washer
  • depending on its age this description should be accurate.
  •  lift the lid and you should see 2 screws on the right of the tub. 
  • these are the screws that hold the lid switch assembly.
  •  you can reach between the case and tub to get it out.
