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.

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:

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.

Quite old admiral mega 22 plus topload washer. the machine did not agitate after filling up. I tried various points on the 3 cycle types and it did not spin either. My son tried moving the agitator and...


Yes sounds like you have now disturbed the seal and will need a new one, remove the agitator and inner drum to get at the seals, to remove the agitator pull off the softner cap and remove bolt form down inside.
To remove the inner drum, the top part of the washer needs to be hinged back to gain access, to do this insert a flat balde 4" from each side at the seam with the front panel to release the clips, lid will now hinge back to give access to the drums, on the outer dum there are clips all the way round to remove the top section of the outer drum release these. remove the bolts under agitator to remove the inner drum. you should have access to the seals but it has been a while.
Reason for not agitating in first place is probably the water level switch at the rear of the drum with a small 8mm hose connecting it to the drum.

Washing machine will not spin


Could be the lid switch, to access the inside, insert a flat blade 4" from each side between the front panel and the lid to release the clips. The lid will now hinge backwards, the switch is on the underside of the lid, isolate the supply and short the switch , test the spin cycle, do not leave the switch shorted, if spin works replace the switch, if no spin could be motor or timer.

Opening cabinate? Admiral washer AAV 7000 AWW


Soak the lid around were the rubber bumpers stop the lid from letting it slam down, mine had become almost glued, I really had to pull hard to unstick them good luck. I have never seen a top lid with a lock.

From description it looks more like you have to replace the lid switch, if you have to push it down, then the contact inside is broken.
