SOURCE: ESTATE etw4300TQO washer runs water for 30 seconds and then shuts off

1) test the timer for defective, however clean the contacts, loose wires or broken repair see the diagram
2) lack of cold water, fix it.

Washer has stopped and won't move on to rinse cycle and won't drain. It's done this before but if I jiggled the lid, it would continue. That is no longer working. The washer has finished the wash cycle...


Its the lid switch that is defective..located under the top panel portion of the machine and engages the lid when it shuts as a safety device....unplug and try to locacte it yourself.

When we start Washing Machine it takes the water as it required but agitator does not work & not spining. Please tell me the reason & also solution of the said problem. Thanks &...


the lid safety switch is bad,this switch located under the lid kills the power to the machine when you open the lid during any cycle,but the fill cycle for obvious safety reasons,remove 2 screws from the control panel,then 2 brass colored clips under this panel with a screw driver,then unplug a connector from the top of the unit,this is the lid safety switch,you can try bypassing 2 of the 3 wires that go from this plug to the control panel which will be either black or white or gray wires, but leave the green wire (usually found in the middle or on one end of this connector) alone as this is the ground wire,then if the washer runs by jumping the other 2 wires,then replace the switch by tilting the cabinet towards you all the way to the floor and replacing this switch under this cabinet but (be careful when bypassing this switch( if you try it) as when its plugged in there is 120 volts across these wires)

The machine starts out fine but when it is supposed to spin it does't always do so. If you bang on the top of the machine where the lid switch is it will then start the spin cycle. Estate Heavy Duty/ Super...


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/index.action

Enter your model number (110.#######) 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 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.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf


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.
