Buy a replacement switch and the top lifts off from the front.  It could be the switch has only come loose or the probe on the lid has broken off.

Whirlpool/kenmore/estate/kitchen aid/roper waher washing but wont drain or spin?


A leading problem that will make the washer not drain is a defective lid switch. To check if that is the problem,open the lid and close it slowly,when it is almost closed you should hear a clicking sound,do this a couple times and if you do not hear the click the lid switch is what i would suspect as the problem.
To me a technician with 30 years experience i think the switch is very easy to replace,i believe with some mechinacal ability you too could replace the switch assambly.
If it turns out to be the switch i have attached a youtube video that will show you step by step how to replace it

Good luck,i hope this will help you to fix your washer,

Roper washer agitator won't spin after kids loaded

It sounds like a someone has broke the lid switch to the washer. Below I have attached a picture, Item number 9 would be the part you seek. P# 3949247 Under the control panel you will find a harness that contains 3 wires coming out of the cabinet housing. The colors should be tan, white and green. If you jump the white and tan you unit should run and think the lid switch is working. Safety way is to unplug the unit to by-pass the switch and plug it back in and select spin only. This is only to test, you need a lid switch for safety. You should replace it ASAP if this test works for you.

Waher fill run but thats all don,t spin don,t wash dont risen

The most common cause for this problem is a faulty lid switch! this the switch that gets depressed by the tang on the machine lid. If the switch is problematic, or faulty, the washer will only fill and that is it! The timer will not advance or the motor run. The switch can be checked with an ohmmeter, and they are fairly simple to replace. If any further information regarding machine disassembly and switch replacement is needed, feel free to post here again.

Hope this gives you a starting point.

Washer just stopped during the wash cycle. Water still in tub. Opened it and closed lid...washer came back on. I opened it again to see if it was moving (it was) and closed lid again. It came back on and...

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description your bang-on... it sounds like a lid switch problem.

...unless the actuator on the lid is broke, if so there`s the problem.

Make sure the switch is being held in place via the two screws along the side, if they are loose tighten them, if it is broken, it will need to be replaced.

Here`s a helpful link for changing it out,

The lid switch will look like this...


Let me know what you find and if I can assist you further.

good luck.
