Washing machine stops working

I search in the internet on regards to the problems with the Whirpool Ultimate Care II and found out that many others had the same problem as I did. Some solved this issue replacing the switch, so i decided to do the same.
I opened the machine and saw that the switch was not working properly, it was not doing any contact, so whenever I open or closed the lid, nothing was happening. I did a house fixing, with some duck tape i was able to make the system work, and now the machine is washing everything again.

Sounds like you have a lid switch problem. The machine thinks the lid is open and it is designed not to run with an open lid. Depending on the styl of whirpool washer you have there is two ways to fix it. First raise the lid of your washer. Do you see a pin on the underside of the lid and a hole in the top of the machine it would fit into? If you don't, try tightening the 4 phillips screws on the hinges on either side of the lid. If they get loose the hinge wont strike the lid switch. If you do see the pin and the hole I mentioned, you likely will actually have to replace your lid switch. If you have this style, send me back your model number and I will type you up a step by step replacement of it.
