It appears your lid switch/door latch has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Whirlpool AWM 312 front loading washing machine motor does not spin.


Hi Sachinl, Before you check out the link below read how To perform the Master Reset, carefully unplug the washing machine from the power outlet and leave it unplugged for one minute. After one minute is up, plug the washer cord back into the wall. Next, open and close the door of the washing machine 6 times within 12 seconds to send a "reset" signal to all the components.(This is a common fix that many appliance repair mechanics use - it works on about 50% of all washing machines.) Once the reset has been completed set the washer to do a small load with no clothes in the washer. See if the washer goes through with the cycle as normal. If the washer performs correctly, then it has been reset and is fixed. If not refer to more troubleshooting techniques and causes of problems below.
If that did not solve the problem then it may be the "Lid Switch". Top loading washing machines that have a faulty lid switch will not turn the agitator and the spin cycle will not start. However on some washing machine models it will still agitate but not spin. To properly check this you must remove the lid switch.

Sounds like the selenoid valves are backwards. Or the water hooked up backwards. Or actually like the cold water one isnt working at all. Either the selenoid or the screen stopped up. Even on cold water i noticed that some washers use warm. But all of them uses cold water to rinse. At least the last rinse. So when it uses cold water there isnt any. First of all, Switch the two wires with each other and wash on hot and see if cold works then. If not Take the selenoid out and apart then clean the diaphram real good with soap and water then pup back together.

Will agitate but won't spin


You could have a bad door switch, always make sure your appliance is disconnected from it's power source before performing work on it, if the door switch is defective your washer will do everything but spin in the spin cycle, it's usually located at the door latch, when the door is closed it pushes the door switch in, you can check it by removing the switch and doing a continuity test on it with the switch in the closed position, or it could be a broken drive belt, some washers use two belts instead of one, check to see if your washer has more than one belt, there are other things it could be that are more complicated such as a bad transmission, bearings, motor, or clutch. which could involve calling a repair man.

Whirlpool washer LSQ9659LW0 will not spin.


If the washer will agitate and drain but will not spin you either have a bad gearcase or the nylon finger that engages the brake is bad. you need to remove the gearcase and check the brake assembly and if that is good replace the gearcase
