How can I fix the lid of the washer comes down to close and it pushes down on a mechanism that allows the washer to drain and spin, that mechanism how can I fix it ? broke

If it is a top loader you will need to raise the top lid. There should be two spring catches in the front joint about 3 inches in from each side. The springs need to be pushed in to release the catch. with a screwdriver or perhaps table knife or with another thin blade tool. Once the lid is raised you should have access to the problem device. It's possible it has become bent or misaligned. or wire connection apart or badly corroded. Electrical connections need to be cleaned to bright metal. Otherwise, replace the broken device and or switch.

I have a whirlpool LSB6000PQ0 that will fill with water and stop. I can hear the timer but the washer does not spin, agitate, nor drain. I have put it through different cycles but does the same on all....

try the lid switch ... i know it sounds crazy but the lid switch is put on there so when the door is raised the operation will stop...same thing if it bad the unit will not start the motor etc....
you should be able to access the molex plug from under the console area. flip the console over and unplug the molex plug... take a jumoer and jump out two wires,.... if you have a meter you can also check continuity on the lid switch by putting a lead in each side of the molex and closing door and raising... it should give you continuity if you have a good one..if nothing then its bad....
good luck to you

Won't start when cover closed

your lid safety switch is shot,you need to remove 2 side control panel covers that pop off,then remove 2 screws that are under here, then control panel will separate from top to let you unplug lid switch connection to the control panel,then open the top cover by popping clips inward on the 2 front corners with a putty knife or something flat like this between the top and front covers,then raise top up and lean back against the wall there you can access this switch to replace it,this switch is designed to shut off unit if lid is raised during spin cycle for your safety

Leaking water from bottom draw

To put machine into test mode: Press and hold keylock, then press and hold start button. Hold both in until machine beeps (if you have display, it will show all symbols). Press power button- display should now show HO. Press start button until LD shows in display- this tests lid motors. Activate lid motors by pressing keylock button- if you open drawer about 3 inches, you should see lid come down. Pressing keylock again will raise lid. Raise and lower lid several times by pressing keylock button to ensure lid is working properly- if not, lid motors need replacing. Good luck!!

LS error

The machine control detected that the lid switch is not functioning properly. Raise the top part of the washer to gain access to the lid switch.

Disconnect the machine from the power source. Gently pry the emblem from the front of the machine and remove the T20 torx screw hidden behind it. Slide the top of the washer forward and raise its front. Prop it up high enough to allow easy access to the lid switch.

The lid switch is activated by an actuator (part number 19119) mounted on a hinge. It will not work properly if the actuator is damaged.

Check the operation of the lid switch using a multimeter. Disconnect the lid switch wiring harness and connect the test leads of the multimeter (set to X1 or ohm) to the terminals of the lid switch and activate it. The multimeter should read zero ohms while the lid switch is activated and open when deactivated.

Replace the lid switch if it is broken or if it fails the test above. Remove the lid switch mounting screw and install the new lid switch. Reconnect the wiring harness and slide the top of the washer back into position. Reinstall the T20 torx screw and the emblem.

How do I acces the lid switch on my kenmore washer

The following link explains step-by-step how to access and/or replace the lid switch on a Kenmore top loader:

Most lid switches are located under the right hand side of the top panel. Some, are located adjacent to either lid hinge. In any case, you still need to remove the washer exterior case to access it. The switch is held in place with a couple of mounting screws with a ground wire attached. This is a very simple repair, but if you experience any difficutlies please let me know. I hop this helps you.

Need to replace lid switch in a kenmore washer

Hi, The easiest way to replace the lid switch (if this is the reight model) is to remove the two screws holding the lid switch and pull the lid switch out so that you can splice the wires to the new switch. If you want to replace switch with the harness complete, here is how to remove the cabinet
Removing the cabinet. UNPLUG the washer. There are two screws holding the control panel to the cabinet. Most models the screw are in front but, some models have the screws in back. They are on each end. Now raise the control panel up and let it rest on the hinges. Unplug the lid switch harness and locate the clips on each side (bronze in color) and release them.
Now the cabinet will lift off the frame and you can set it aside. Now you will be able to get to the switch and replace it.
Plase let me know if I can assist you further.
