SOURCE: how to replace a switch-lid on a whirlpool washer

You can check various appliance repair websites for self help manuals, or you can follow these steps:


First of all, unplug your washer. You will need to remove the console in order to get to the lid switch. I believe your washer has release tabs under the console at each front corner. Simply slide a putty knife straight in from the front at each corner and push in while lifting up. You should feel the release tabs push in and the console will pop up. Or, you may have a console that has removable end caps. They can be removed by gently prying up on the top of them from the rear on each side. You may have to use a small screwdriver for this. The caps should pop right off. Once removed, you will need to loosen a screw under each cap. Once you have the console loosened, carefully lift it up and lay it back over the rear panel of the washer in its resting position. Be careful not to damage the small plastic hinges that hold it in place. Now you will need to perform the following steps:

1. Under the console you will find the lid switch connector. Unplug the switch from the connector.

2. There will be two brass colored clips. You will need to remove these to remove the machine casing. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver away from you while holding into the groove and the clip will release.

3. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Now pull the case from the frame by lifting from the back first.

You do not have to remove it all the way from the frame. Just enough to gain access to the switch. All there is to the switch is a couple of screws holding it in and a ground wire. It's a pretty easy repair job.

Once you've completed your switch installation, make sure you get the case back on the frame correctly by following these steps:

1. While looking down through the lid opening, place the front lip of the machine case UNDER the washer frame and start leaning it back onto the frame. There are four small cleats that must fit into four slots on the case or the washer will vibrate. Make sure the frame is seated properly, lean forward from the front of the washer, grasp both sides of the rear panel and pull towards the case. The rear panel should be seated and flush with the casing before inserting the retaining clips.

2. Insert the brass-colored clips into the slot on the washer rear panel first, then push straight down into the opening on the top of the washer with some force. If you have the case seated correctly, the clips will snap back in.

3. Make sure you plug the connector from the console back into the lid switch receptacle and close the console.

I hope you find this helpful. If you have any questions please let me know by posting comments.

Have you purchased a lid switch yet? Most major appliance repair centers carry them. The price is about $35. If you have not purchased one yet, let me know what your EXACT model number is (located on the rim of the wash tub opening under the lid) and I will locate a part number for you. I hope this information helps you.

Aborcass, not trying to steal your thunder here...To remove the console, slide a putty knife under the front corner on either side of the console and push straight in while lifting up. This should release the retaining clips that hold the console to the top of the washer.

SOURCE: LID SWITCH ON WASHER REPLACE.

TEMPORARY FIX for model # LSQ8200HQO (perhaps, other models as well) until you can tear the thing apart: DUCT TAPE. One drawback - you'll have to leave the lid open, tape the lid switch on the outside *away* from the tub. The wires on the model listed are long enough to allow you to do this.

Thanks for helping me figure out what the problem was. Tearing apart will have to wait until Monday ... RUSH CONCERT tomorrow night!!!

Washer will not spin r drain model whirlpool la7680xmwo


Sounds most likely a broken/defective lid switch. The lid switch on a top-load washer is a safety switch that detects whether the top-load washer lid is closed. The lid must be closed when the basket spins; some top-load models require that the washer lid be closed before the washer drive motor runs (thus no draining). If the lid switch isn't properly detecting whether the lid is closed replace the switch.

I was given a whirlpool ultimate care II washer recently, and the lid switch is broken, but I cannot find what the model number is for my washer (believe me, I have looked EVERYWHERE for it!), and the part...


Usually the model number is on the lip of the inner rim of the washer when you open the lid...near where the water comes into the basin. But even if you can't find the part number for the switch or the washer, you can just defeat the switch by taking the two colored wires from the switch and twisting them together...no switch needed then!

Roper by whirlpool will not drain water and spin


Check your lid switch. This is the most common cause of the problem you are experiencing. Symptoms may include, filling and stopping on the intial fill cycle, stopping right after the wash cycle, not advancing to rinse or spin cycles, and a wash tub that will not drain.

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:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3557193-replacing_a_lid_switch

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.

NOTE: You do not have to drain or bail the water from the washer tub to perform this repair. Once a defective lid switch is replaced, the washer should drain normally.

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 if you perform the repair yourself. Prices differ between sites so shop and compare. If the model number is correct, the part number for a replacement switch is 8318084.

If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please post back and let me know. The lid switch is a very simple repair that you can easily perform without the assistance of a repairman.

If this advice does not help you enough, repairclinic.com has a Repair Manual you can order to assist you with all your repairs. The part number is 1170635 and is priced at about $20. Searspartsdirect.com also has a repair manual for about the same price. Part number 4314044L. I hope this information is helpful to you.

NOTE: Roper is manufactured by Whirlpool, so these instructions do apply.

My Whirlpool washer, model number WTW5521SQ0 won't spin


This problem is frequent and is usually caused by the lid switch. It wont activate the spin for safety reasons, however it will drain. You should be able to hear the clicking of the switch while you open and close your lid. If you don't hear a clicking sound it is most likely faulty and will have to be replaced, part number for the lid switch is 8318084. If the switch is okay it will most likely be a transmission problem, and will have to be diagnosed by a technician. Check for any large oil leaks around the inside of the cabinet. If so this could be an early indication of a transmission problem Hope this helps

Thanks

Washer won't turn on at all


This is a very common symptom of a lid switch malfunction. This happens when the switch wears out. The switch may be loose or not making good contact. As you open and close the lid, you should hear a "clicking" sound as the lid switch is activated. If you do not hear the switch, you will need to remove the console and exterior casing to access the switch. The lid switch on your model is located near the left lid hinge, and is activated by a small steel rod. Sometimes, all it takes is adjusting this rod by bending it slightly to make the switch activate. If you can get the switch to click or activate by hand, there's a good chance all you need to do is adjust the rod that activates it. If you attempt all these preliminaries, and the switch still does not seem to be working properly, replace it.

Replacement parts can be found at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and the lid switch will be located under the "Top and Cabinet" heading as item number 11 (part #8318084). You may also check repairclinic.com. They carry the SAME parts and sometimes offer a better price. For instructions on how to replace a lid switch, click on the following link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385199-replacing_lid_switch_whirlpool_top

I know the link is for a Kenmore or Whirlpool washer, but your washer is manufactured by Whirlpool and uses the same parts. This is a simple and inexpensive repair if you wish to accomplish this on your own. This total repair will cost you about $15 (if the switch is required). Let me know if you require addtional assistance.
