Question about Washing Machines
My washing machine model LSQ9030PQ1 will not start unless you slam the lid closed or pull the start knob in and out several times.
HI, Check and see if the door hinge screws are tight. Sometimes the hinge loosens and the lid switch will not activet properly. It the lid is tight, you might have a lid switch going bad. The lid switch is located under the control panel. There is a screw in each corner of the control panel in the back side. Loosen these screws and lift the control panel up and it will rest on the hinges.
Ths lid switch is to the left and should have three wire to it. Parts# 8318084
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further or you need a place to order the lid swtich, please give my web site a chance at www.whirlpoolpartssurplus.com

Your lid saftey switch is probably the problem. for a temporary fix.... remove the rubber gommet on your washer lid, its under the lid on the right side should be mounted on a white plastic "stick". the grommet is grey in color. if that solves the problem then your switch is going bad or you door is bent. if the door looks fine order nad replace the switch. or have a professional by to do it.
