I fixed mine by extending the tip of the rod that pushes the switch down. If you want to replace it you need to undo the two screws on the control head at each end facing front. Pull control panel forward and flip up. Un plug wires going to door switch. Un snap the two gold bracket retainers that hold back and cabinet together. Lift cabinet from rear and tilt forward to get it out and access switch.

The peice that the lid come down on is broken, so


If you are referring to the lid switch, or the lid strike, ths is will cause symptoms that may include, filling and stopping on the intial fill cycle, a wash tub that will not drain, and stopping right after the wash cycle and not advancing to rinse or spin cycles.

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:

If the link does not work, copy and paste to your web browser.

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 you posted this question under is correct, the part number for a replacement switch is 3949247. The lid strike part number is 358684.

If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please post back and let me know. If your model number differs from the one you listed this question under, please provide me with the correct information. The lid switch is a very simple repair that you can easily perform without the assistance of a repairman.

If you would like to purchase a Repair Manual to assist you with all your repairs, repairclinic.com has one that you can order on line for about $20. The part number is 1170635. Searspartsdirect.com also has a repair manual for about the same price. Part number 4314044L. I hope this information is helpful.

Roper washing machine will no engage spin cycle


The most common cause of this problem is a lid switch malfunction. Symptoms may include, no spinning, no agitation, stopping at the rinse cycle and no draining. 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 the suggestions I have listed do not match your washer symptoms, please post back and elaborate more on what the washer is/is not doing so I can provide you with better assistance. Please include your model number (located on a nameplate along the wash tub rim under the lid) if its different than the one you listed the question under so that I may be able to assist you better. I hope this information is helpful to you.

NOTE: If the wash tub remains full of water, you do not have to drain it to perform this repair. However, if you wish to drain the tub to get rid of stagnant water, you can use simple gravity by removing the drain hose from the standpipe and placing it in a bucket. Or, you can use a wet/dry shop vac to pull a suction on the drain hose.

Washer will fill with water and then stops. I can hear a small buzzing sound coming from the control panel.


Check your lid switch. If the washer fills, agitates, then stops at the rinse cycle and won't drain, or if the washer does an initial fill, then stops, this is a common symptom of a lid switch malfunction. The "buzzing" noise you hear is probably the timer motor running.

This is a very simple and inexpensive repair. The following link explains how to access and/or replace one:

Washer goes through wash cycle and stops


Check your lid switch. If the washer fills and agitates, but stops at the rinse cycle, this is a common symptom of a lid switch malfunction. The following link explains how to access and/or replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

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 the switch is not activated by a lid strike, it will activated by a hinge actuator located next to either the left or right lid hinge. You will need to remove the operator console in order to access this type of switch.

NOTE: On this type of lid switch the lid hinge has a small rod that is used as an acutator to toggle the switch. In many cases, you can adjust the rod by bending it if the switch is not making contact.

If you determine the switch to be defective, a replacement can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all of them for the best price.

If the model number you have this listed under is correct, the part number for your lid switch is 8054980. The lid switch on this model is located under the washer casing along the right lid hinge. This is a very simple repair, that usually costs about $25 to $35 to repair yourself. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. Post back with a correct model number if the model number is not correct. I hope this helps you. NOTE: The timer costs about $130. I would recommend checking the lid switch first.

My Kenmore 80 series washer won't agitate but it will spin. I have replaced a coupler before, but this problem seems different. Any help?


This problem is commonly attributed to a lid switch malfunction. If the model number you have this listed under is correct, the lid switch is 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 your washer is not configured in this manner, please post back with your COMPLETE model number (located along the tub rim under the lid) so I can confirm how your washer IS configured.

A replacement lid switch can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, repairclinic.com or appliancepartspros.com. All three sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all three for the best price. For instructions on how to replace a lid switch, you can refer to my profile and look under my "Tips and Tricks" for links for Replacing a Lid Switch. If you still need assistance, please contact me and let me know.

Washer will not go into spin cycle model # 22712100


If the washer fills normally, but stops when it gets to the spin cycle, this could be a common symptom of a defective lid switch. If you try opening and closing the lid and do not hear a distinctive "clicking" sound, your lid switch may need to be replaced. The lid switch is located on the right-hand side of the lid opening with a small slot. It is activated by a plastic piece called a “lid strike” on the lid itself. Make sure the lid strike is not broken off. This will keep the switch from not working. If the switch is not activated, it will allow the washer to fill and maybe agitate, but will not start the rinse or drain cycles. If you diagnose it and wish to attempt the repair yourself, the switch costs about $25 (part number 3949238) and is fairly simple to replace. You can locate it at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number in the "Searched by Model" block and you can find it under the "Top and Cabinet" heading as Item number 11. The lid strike costs about $11 (part number 350733), and can be found under the same heading as item number 20. If you go to my profile and click on "Tips and Tricks" I have a posting listed on how to replace a lid switch.

If your washer fills and simply does not agitate or spin, and a loud rattling noise can be heard, you may have a defective motor coupling (part number 285753A). It can be located under the "Brake/Clutch/Gearcase/Motor/Pump" heading as item number 13. I also have a posting explaining how to replace a motor coupling. A new coupling costs about $15 and is also very easy to replace. NOTE: The washer will still drain if the motor coupling is bad.

If the diagnosis is incorrect, please post back with comments and describe your symptoms a little more in depth, so I can give you a more accurate solution. I hope you find this information helpful.
