Question about Washing Machines
My kenmore washer stops during the rinsing cycle and won't drain or spin. The plastic lid switch is broken (not the white part on the lid, but the plastic part just under the lip). I see there are two screws but it has broken away from them and is just hanging underneath. It feels like it is connected to a wire of some sort. How do I replace it? Would a Sears hardware store have the part?
This is a very easy problem that you can repair yourself. The following link explains in detail how to replace a lid switch such as yours:
A replacement switch can be purchased on line at any of the following sources:
All three sites offer great service and have competitive pricing. So, shop all three for the best price. Just use your COMPLETE model number (usually located under the washer lid along the tub rim) to begin your search criteria. If you do not wish to order on line, use the part number provided by the Sears website and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. Yes, this a part that they should carry in their inventory.
If you have questions, or need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
