Question about Whirlpool 3.2 cu. ft. Plus Washer
My washing machine is a top loader. The little button that gets pushed in to make the washing machine thinks it's closed, is not working. For a few weeks, I was able to slam the lid closed and that helped but now, I can't do anything to make it work.
You are referring to the lid switch. If it's visible, try tightening the screws that hold it to the cabinet (they may be loose and the lid strike can't engage the switch properly). If you can, feel underneath where the lid switch is located and see if it's broken from where it mounts (feels loose). Push the lid switch lever down, if it doesn't "click" or doesn't start the wash, replace the lid switch and you should be good to go.
If you want, post your model number to make sure it's the model I'm thinking of and I can also try and get you the part number for the lid switch.
