How do I replace lid assembly for Whirlpool WTW8800YC 4.6 Cu. Ft. Cabrio Platinum Top Load Washer


Hi Sarah, there are two screws on each side of the lid holding the shaft for the hinges. Open the lid to access them, You will need an Allen wrench to take them off, after that, just lift the lid up to take it out. Hope this help. Thanks.

I HAVE A L 5 ERROR CODE ON MY WASHER AND IT WILL NOT WORK WE HAD THE WATER PUMP REPLACED BUT IT STILL HAVE THE SAME MESSAGE ITS A CALYPSO WHIRLPOOL


L5 means it cannot sense the lid open or closed.
Lid switch is likely bad.

This error code may also be used if there is a disagreement between the motor and machine controllers on the state of the lid switch. The control should not allow the unit to run in this condition. This code will also appear if the user presses the START key while the lid is open. Open the lid or press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Washing machine will not drain or spin.


HELLO: YES THE LID SWITCH IS BAD. TO REPLACE THE LID SWITCH YOU MUST REMOVE THE COVER ON THE MACHINE. FIRST REMOVE THE TWO PHILLIPS SCREWS FROM THE CONTROL CENTER ON TOP BACK OF MACHINE . TILT BACK THE TIMER AND CONTROL CENTER GENTLY. THERE ARE TWO FUNNY LOOKING LID RETAINER SPRINGS THAT HOLD THE ENTIRE THREE SIDES OF THE MACHINE TOGETHER REMOVE THESE WITH A FLAT BLADE SCREW DRIVER. REMOVE THE POWER PLUG FROM THE WASHER UNDER TOP. SLIDE COVER OFF MACHINE THEN REMOVE THE TWO PHILLLIPS SCREWS FROM THE LID SWITCH ASSY. UNPLUG SWITCH FROM COVER AND REPLACE WITH NEW UNIT . THERE IS ALSO ONE GROUND SCREW 5/16 THAT WILL COME OFF FROM UNDER NEATH THE COVER. THIS SOUNDS A LITTLE COMPLICATED BUT THE WHOLE PROCEDURE CAN BE DONE IN LESS THAN 10 MINUTES. THANKS FROM RUSTY AT RVANS@NETZERO.NET

Need to replace lid switch


Unplug and remove back panel and on left side while facing back panel left top corner. It appears in print having two sheet metal screws coming through top to hold the switch in place. Looks a little tight but I don't think you will have a big problem replacing.
If you have any problems let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

Washer gets to spin cycle and stops. It appears


Hi, if this is a whirlpool model machine, you can't just remove the top. The whole cabinet needs to be removed. You can change the lid switch without removing the cabinet. Remove the two screws holding the lid switch. Pull the lid switch toward the middle of the opening and snip the wires. You can splice the new switch onto the old wires using wires nut connectors if you want. If you want to use the whole wire harnes that comes with new switch, remove the two screws that hold the control panel to the cabinet. now yuou can see the lid switch connection (easy plug in) located in the middle. Unplug the lid switch and force the connection downward. Remove the old switch and install the new.

I can get you part# or send you the part off my web site www.whirlpoolpartssurplus.com if you would like. I would need the model#

I hope this helps.

THanks
Vic

Whirlpool LSQ8543JQ1, washer stopped full of water, will not start back up, seems like no power to it, check fuse box and everything else that is running of same.


Pretty much exactly what guest above me said. I have a lsq8543jq1 also, was stopping after agitation.

At first thought it was something more serious, since the dial seemed to make a humming/grinding/buzzing noise when it was switching to agitation cycle, but that seems to just be a timer before the drain/spin cycle kicks in.

I had a washer full of water, so rather than wait till I could get a part (or hand drain -what a pain), I just grabbed a paper clip and rigged the switch so it thinks the door is shut and voila, drains and finishing cycle as I type.

The switch is a safety device to prevent accidents; bad injuries could result if the door is opened while the washer is in spin cycle. I don't recommend this as a long term solution - especially if you have kids. I have 2 and will be ordering the new part asap.
