The load finished on my whirlpool cabrio washer (topload) but the machine won't unlock the lid?


you need to replace the lid lock. the latch probably broke in 2, and the broken part is whats keeping the lid closed. if you have clothes inside you can open the top by using a putty knife to release the front clips holding the top of the machine down. push each clip in and lift up. you will also be able to access the lid lock this way.

Filled with water at start of cycle..... completely died.... can't get it to restart or finish cycle


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description "Filled with water at start of cycle..... completely died.... can\'t get it to restart or finish cycle" it sounds like you`ll need to replace the lid switch, but first...

Here`s how you can check it pretty easily...

( this is based on the most common Whirlpool, Estate, Kitchen-Aid, Roper, Kenmore, Inglis top-load washer, not necessarily applicable to ALL...especially those built in the past 1-2yrs. the model number would distinguish if it applies to your particular model )

Lift the lid, if you observe the underside of the lid there will be a plastic "strike" or "actuator" that goes into a hole when the lid is closed.

Check the hole where the actuator goes into the cabinet and insure you can see a gray oval shaped piece. If so take a small screw-driver, pen/pencil or something small enough to fit thru the small hole and try activating the switch by pushing it down ( machine must be in the agitate or spin cycle ). If you don't see it, the switch has likely broken loose and needs to be replaced.

If it start's to function than the switch is not being contacted properly by the actuator on the lid and likely is due to the switch being worn...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,

I think the issue might be the lid switch, but not too sure. The washing machine will fill with water and agitaite but then it stops and the water does not drain or go to spinning cycle mode. I have to...


If you put hanger in hole and push down then it works it is the lid switch. To remove take top off to get to it. From the front take a putty knife and push on each side about an inch from the side to release the clips that hold the top down. Putty knife between the top & the cabinet. Lift up and you can get to the switch. Also it could be the plastic piece that pushes the switch down is broken off and not long enought to push the switch down.

Lid switch won't click


whirlpool has no panels. Tilt your machine backwards as far as you can so as to allow you to view the lid from underneath. there you will see a lever that makes contact with the limit switch as you open and close it. See what the problem is and rectify

Whirlpool super capacity Lsq9549lw0 has trouble spinning on its own.


If the washer does fine thru the agitation cycle (the washing), that means the motor is OK and the coupler is OK.  It would not agitate unless both are OK.  (and don't listen if anyone tells you the lid switch is bad -- machine would not fill & go thru wash cyle). The spin is another matter.  There is a separate tube for spinning the basket.  There is a drive  block at top of the tube (that sometimes fails)  and there is a separate cluch mechanism below, under the tub.  Those places is where you should look.
