This problem is commonly attributed to a lid switch malfunction. If the model number you have this listed under is correct, the lid switch is mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side. 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 your washer is not configured in this manner, please post back with your COMPLETE model number (located along the tub rim under the lid) so I can confirm how your washer IS configured.

If you determine that your lid switch is broken, the following link will give you the necessary steps to replace it: You can order a replacement switch on line at Just type in your model number and look for item 9 under the "Top and Cabinet" heading. The lid strike is listed as item 20. NOTE: Another thing that can cause lid switch malfunctions, is the lid being bowed. This can occur from placing heavy items (such as detergent bottles and clothes baskets) on top of the washer. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know before you rate the solution. I hope this helps you.

I have a top loader washing machine with a filling problem. don't think its hoses or valves I think its electrical in the control panel. after the machine filled, I opened the lid to switch the water

most washers will stop what ever there doing (filling) if you open the lid this is a std safety feature . and sometimes this same switch malfunctions and gives a false indication of a door open

WASHING MACHINE stopped in mid-cycle

if it stops at the drain and spin cycle check the lid switch,open the lid,set the washer to spin cycle and pull out the timer knob,stick a screw driver into the hole where the strike from the lid goes into and push down,if you don't hear a clicking sound when you push down on the switch in the hole then you have a bad lid switch but if your machine does run sometime it sounds like the switch will work if you push down on it,could be cracked where the screws go into it. watch video on how to replace it.if you do hear a clicking sound when you open and close the lid or push down with the screw driver you could have a bad timer but check the lid switch first

Hot water stops filling too soon.

Fill setting has to be adjusted and the belt is slipping on the spin cycle and not generating enough centrifugal force to get the water out.

Will not wash or spin

the two most common things are a broken lid switch or motor coupling,if you can hear the motor running but nothing else is happening you have a broken motor coupling,if it filled with water and then nothing check the lid switch,close the lid and then open it a few inches,open and close it like this a few times,if you don't hear a clicking sound when the lid opens and closes then the lid switch is time send the model number off of the washer,it will start with 110. or similar. this will help you with the lid switch but the part number could be wrong,when you call your parts store give them the model number and you'll find it right under the bottom of the lid when it's open. copy and paste for the motor coupling,good lick and hope this helps
