    This worked just fine. It has saved me an expensive callout for a repair person considering the part is only worth a couple of dollars.

    Thanks

I want to replace lid on my cabrio model wtw7800xw2 with a solid lid frame on glass lid keeps breaking


If all you want to do is to replace the lid, there are two TORX 15 screws on each side. Undo those and the lid should slide right off the pins. Be careful to not drop them into the tub or dispensers. You can then slide the new lid right on. Put the screws back on and test. If you lift the top cover off and mess with the springs, it is a PAIN to take off and put back on.

Won't drain or spin


If this is a Kenmore top loader, the most common cause of the symptoms you describe is a lid switch malfunction.

The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3557193-replacing_a_lid_switch

On some models, the lid switch is located under the top casing by one of the lid hinges. You will know if you if you have this type of switch, because It does not have a lid strike and the small hole on the right hand side of the wash tub will not be present. This switch is actuated (toggled) by a rod on the lid hinge. With this type of switch, if you locate it and it can be toggled by hand, you may only need to adjust the actuator by bending it slightly.

A replacement lid switch (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The average price is about $20 - $30. Prices differ between sites so shop and compare.

If you have questions, need additional assistance, please post back with your model number (located on a nameplate along the wash tub opening under the washer lid), so I can provide you with better assistance. I hope this helps you.

I have emailed you several times but haven't received an answer.


This may take a couple of attempts in solving your problem. The first would be to suspect the lid interlock switch. On the lid at probably the front left underside corner, ( could be right ), there should be a plastic pin about 1 inch long. This pin trips the switch that is the 'lid interlock' switch. Check to see if that pin is still there or broken off.

Step two would be to start a wash load cycle from the begining. Let the washer fill to medium level**, and manually press the switch down with a plastic rod, ( Something like a Bic pen ), as far down as possible. This should start the agitation. If it does, pull away the pen and try it agian with the lid. If the lid pin has been broken off, replace it. If the pin is still there but it started with the pen and lid up then it is one of two things. 1. the switch is set to low down for the lid pin to activate the switch or the switch requires replace ment. In either case the front of the washer would have to be removed to get access to the switch. To remove the front/side panel remove the screws on the back spread the sides clear of the back and push the panel forward and off.

Good luck please let me know how that goes.

Estate Washer will not drain (model: SM 8280867) appears to have a damaged sensor on the lid, need info on how to access this piece, also need info on how to access the pump if this is not the problem


If this is an Estate top loader, check your lid switch. Since the pump is mechanically driven, it usually is not the problem unless it is clogged. The washer will still run, though, if this were the case. This problem is commonly attributed to a loose or broken lid switch.

If your washer fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle or drain, the problem is commonly caused by a lid switch malfunction. The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

If the switch requires replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. Just use your model number as your search criteria. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price.

NOTE: Some washer models have the lid switch located near either the left or right hinge of the lid. This type of switch is activated by a rod on the hinge pin. If not functioning, it can often be adjusted by bending the hinge rod until it engages the switch.

You can access the drain pump by removing the washer case. The pump is located directly in the front of the washer under the wash tub. It has two hoses attached. All you have to do is remove one of the drain hoses to drain any water. However, before you do that try using a wet dry shop vac on the drain hose by pulling it from the standpipe at the wall and pulling a vacuum on it. This will minimize the need to mop up any water. These wash tubs have a capacity of about 35 gallons. That's a lot of water to bail or try to mop up. If the water drains with a vacuum on the line, the pump probably isn't clogged. NOTE: If the lid switch is defective, you do not have to drain the tub to install a new one. The water will drain once the switch is repaired.

If you have any questions about this repair, or if you need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

PS Are you sure you have the model number correct? I tried doing a search on that number and it doesn't cross to anything. I think you may have posted the Serial Number. Please verify and post back with a correct Model Number if this is the case. I would like to be able to confirm how your washer is configured.

Hi, You will need to take the two screw holding the control panel down. The control panel will raise up on a hinge and then you can see the lid switch connection.

The lid on my top loading admiral mega 22 plus washing machion is


These are plastic and will need to be replaced with new.
Once you have sourced new hinges then the machine top needs to be opened,
Electrically Isolate the machine, then at the joint between the machine front panel and top insert a flat blade 4" from each side to release the lid catches, tilt back the top to access the screws on the hinges and replace with new.
