Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II GSQ9669L Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Push on lid to get the washer to work.

How can I fix the "lid closed" lever? I was able to put a heavy bottle on the lid and it would work, then 2 bottles, etc. Now I have to push on the lid with my body or push the "lever" with my finger for it to work. How can I fix this so I can go and do other things while I get laundry done? Thank you in advance!!

    The washer is working great again! Thanks for offering to help but it turned out to be a pretty simple job. I got the part and it's done! Thanks again!

    The tub of my washer fills with water and then never starts the agitation cycle. If I lift the lid several inches and then drop it, it starts working again. I suspect it is the lid switch, but I cannot find where it is in the machine. Other sites link to MSN groups which is now closed.



    Do you have instructions on how to replace the switch?

The item you are talking about is called the "lid switch". It is not normal to have to place anything on top of the switch in order for it to work properly. In fact, you may have caused more damage than good. The switch has to be replaced and runs about $35 US. Don't know what it would cost up north. If you decide to replace yourself, let me know and I can give you step-by-step tips.

    Do you still need assistance on replacing the switch or am I too late?

I HAVE A TOP LOADER WHIRLPOOL LXR7144EQ1. i HAVE TO PUSH DOWN ON THE LID AFTER CLOSING IT OR HAVE SOMETHING HEAVY ON TOP FOR IT TO CONTINUE TO WASH. WHATS THE PROBLEM?


It sounds like the lid switch, which senses when the lid is closed, needs adjusting. You will need to remove the top of the machine, locate the switch and move it closer to the lid actuator.

How to reset toner on Ricoh Aficio 180


If you want to reset the toner bottle, open the front cover, lift up on the green toner handle, push the lever in to slide out the toner hopper, pull out the toner bottle, give it 1 or 2 gentle shakes, and put it back in the hopper. Then push the hopper closed until it snaps into place, push the handle back down, and close the front door.

Error Epson RX 595- Close the Scanner Unit


I just had the same problem. I figured that there must be a lever that gets pushed in when the lid closes and sure enough there's a square hole in the vent area (look in the area below the serial number) and in that is a small lever is that gets pushed down by the piece that's attached to the lid. For some reason, it's not pushing it down far enough or the lever has bent and it doesn't connect. My only solution (for now) was to jam a pencil into the lever to push it down all the way and sure enough, it worked. I'm sure there's a better, more permanent (and more attractive) way to repair this, but for now, it works and I need to print out 60 copies of an event program for tomorrow night! Good luck!

Whirlpool cabrio top loader,always having to "reset" 2 times 1 cy


Hi Curtis: File a class-action suit against the Whirlpool company. There is something wrong with the electronic module that tells the washer to shut down during the rinse cycle.
If you pause, lift the lid, pour in about 3 gallons of water into the tub, close the lid, push start, the washer should continue without having to wear out your fingers pushing the buttons. The buttons will eventually be pushed down into the control panel and you will have to use a pencil to reach them.
Also helps to have a nice cool bottle of regular beer (not the light stuff) before you start the load, the washing duty will work out much smoother. Good Luck.

Whirlpool washer stops for no reason.


i would be concerned teh the door/lid switch is not being activated, or is loosing contact withthe swtch mid wash causing unit to shut off. unitll the lid is lifted and closed to make better contact.. tyhe activator for the lid switch is actually the underside of the lefthand lid hinge. so if your able toreah under the lid while open you feel the metal lever, as you push and pull hte lid youll feel the lever move as well. with a hollow shafted screwdriver/1/4 nutdriver. place the driver over the metallever andslightly bend it toward the rear of the uni, so it makes better contact with the switch mounted tothe underside of the main top assembly

Washer will not complete rinse cycle and will stop.


it is probably the piece that your lid pushes down to let the washer know that it is closed try hitting the lid realy hard.It happened to me i have to do it every time
