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.

Lid Locks- Fills for 2 seconds and stops


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer lid won't lock the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer door won't lock the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.
Main Control Board If the washer door won't unlock the problem might be the main control board. This is not common. Normally the problem is with the lock mechanism.

Maytag_lse7804ace: washer won't fill with water. If I fill it by hand, the cycle works fine (until it gets to the rinse cycle, when it won't fill again).


Hello John,
The most probable reason the washer is not filling is because of a blown fuse that is part of the lid switch asm. By UNPLUGGING THE WASHER and removing the 2 INNER screws on the the control panel and the control panel can be rotated down to see the fuse in the lid switch asm. Here is where the fuse is on the switch asm. its circled in red 11_4_2011_1_39_54_am.jpg

Just curious, if my washer won't fill but the spin cycle still works, does that rule out the lid switch as the problem?


Hello,

No if doesnt rule out the lid switch yet in fact that very likely is the problem,the lid switch asm. is wired through a fuse that if lid switch is bad the fuse will blow and in addation to the fuse being wired to the lid switch,it too is wired to the water inlet valve and will not fill if the fuse on lid switch asm. is blown
I know this by replacing more lid switch/fuse assamblies in 30 year appliance repair career that i can remember. I dare say (by assumption) that the tech that came to diagnose your washer gave you the exact correct diagnosis

Washer fills with water but then will not cycle through after filling tub


I looked up yur model. It is a fine washer. Your lid switch on this model don't allow for wsh or spin if the the lid is ope. Older models would let the washer wash but not spin. This switch here won't allow for wash or spin. How it works

My page on these

Note: this washer is a newer model and I have yet to come across one. I believe your problem to be the lid switch. It has 3 wires. 2 hot ones and another one attached to the frame. Jump them 2 live wires and see if she runs. If it works get a new switch and party on!

Washer won't do spin cycle....and won't start any cycle


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

When the washer fills but does not agitate or spin then you can check if the lid switch is fine. You can jump start the lid switch by connecting both the wires with each other or use the third wire to act as jumper between the two. After this if the problem is solved then replacing lid switch is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

After filling up washer won't work


After filling it should go into agatate if you tried a lid switch then I would check the motor coupler it may be broken or striped. Couplers are a common problem it's there to save the motor if it get hung up. While you have it out check the clutch and brake lineings. If the motor is runing it could be the agitator splines striped and wont turn.
If it has belts check them ,also pullys
That pretty much leaves the timer not likely and transmisson not likely but possible.
