Question about Whirlpool LSR5132PQ Top Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a top loading Whirlpool, Type 111. It won't cycle through on it's own, it must be manually switched to each cycle. I assume it has something to do with a timer, but I'm not sure where it is.

The big dial knob is attached to the timer. Give model number to verify certain parts.

The electronic timer is worn and requires replacement, this would be a bulky metallic box located just behind the large setting knob.

Whirlpool top load washer won't advance through cycles


A small motor that rotates the timer has gone bad. Common practice is to replace the timer. Usually a mechanical timer of this type is less expensive than a computerized timer.

I have a Kenmore 70 series top loading washer. Model#11020702990. It is a type 111 It will not drain. It fills, agitates, but does not drain.


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.20702990&pathTaken=partSearch

and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Newer model Whirlpool / Kenmore washers use a Lid Switch as a safety device. Unless the switch senses that the lid on the washer is closed, the washer will neither agitate nor spin.

Older models only used the switch during the drain / spin cycle.

Try to bypass the Lid Switch by removing the Console and jumping the two outermost pins on the switch.

This is a Whirlpool PDF on how these washers operate. It has a diagram on jumping the switch as well as a detailed section on how the transmission works.

It also has a troubleshooting guide.

To bypass the switch, you only have to disconnect the power to the washer, tilt the console back, unplug the switch and using an short piece of insulated wire, jump the two outermost contacts on the connector coming from the console and plug the washer back in.

Following is a description of how to gain access to the console and how to remove the cabinet if necessary.

With the jumper in place, try to re-start the washer.

If it works, the Lid Switch is a relatively inexpensive part and only requires you to access the console and remove the cabinet.
