Lock is normally activated by a pin since this works when you WAGGLE it then this suggests the micro-switch is loose and moving around .... you need to bend its lever slightly to allow it to MAKE.....as this is what the pin does when the lid is closed.Check that the wiring spades are good also..

I believe you will need the lid cover lock latch switch with arm. It may be simple as a bent arm on it not aligning up. with pin

SOURCE: My Kenmore Washing Machine wont drain or spin. Only a slight hum.

This problem is commonly attributed to a lid switch malfunction. If the model number you have this listed under is correct, the lid switch is mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. The humming sound you hear when the lid is closed may just be the timer motor running. If your washer is not configured in this manner, please post back with your COMPLETE model number (located along the tub rim under the lid) so I can confirm how your washer IS configured. I hope this helps you.

If you determine that your lid switch is broken, please let me know and I will provide you with the steps necessary to repair it yourself (simple repair job). I can also give advice on where to purchase a replacement.

NOTE: Placing heavy objects on the washer lid can cause the lid to bow and also affect the way it contacts the lid switch.

SOURCE: locking mechanism

replace the lid lock ! its a safety measure. I would not recommend removing or bypassing lid lock. just replace it. without the lid lock it will work with lid open. good-day ! if you really what to bypass the lid lock. Find the wire that goes to the switch. Splice the wires together and the machine will think the lid is shut all the time. if you can not get top of washer off. just call an appliance center and give them the model and serial number. and they should be able to tell you. good-day !

Amana washer lid lock wont quit blinking


Your washer lid lock button is locked and lid was not put down before it locked, which is why the light is flashing. Therefore, push the "START" button until you see the lid lock button is off (Approx 3 seconds). Once it is off, then you can put the lid down and push the start button again, which will lock the lid into place. The washer will NOT drain or wash or spin unless the lid itself is in the locked position. If you were able to get the lid down and locked and it still doesn't work, then you need a technician to replace a wiring harness. However, you mentioned that the lid lock button was flashing, therefore, it stands to reason that your lid is NOT locked down.

Sounds like clutch not catching,this may need to bed in .The fact it works okay with no load and no spin with load sounds like clutch/ but also could be motor torque.Ask repair man to recheck work done.

Whirlpool washer won't wash or spin or dump water


usually a broken lid switch if it fills with water and then nothing,set the timer on spin and pull out the timer,open the lid and stick a screw driver into the hole where the plastic acuator on the lid goes into the hole and push down easily and see if washer will run this is where the lid switch is and it's only a safety switch so when the lid is open the washer won't run,if not push up and down on the switch and listen for a clicking sound,no click switch is bad part number 285671,watch video

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.

Whirlpool LSQ9544KQO won't spin


if it fills with water and then nothing check the lid switch,if it's bad it won't do anything but fill,some will agitate but then no drain or spin,the easiest way to check it is open the lid a few inches and close it,do this a few times,if you don't hear a clicking sound the switch is bad,or open the lid and stick a screw driver into the hole on the right side where the strike from the lid goes into,if it doesn't click when you push it down and let it up it's bad,part number 3949237 and it's around 50 dollars.watch this video,it's a different lid switch but changes out the same way.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFsvLiuTniU
you can also stick a jumper wire into the two outside wires to check it,flip up the top console,you'll see the lid switch connector on the right side plugging into the top of the frame,unplug it,stick the jumper into the connector that unplugged from the frame and it will have three holes in it,the middle is ground so stick the jumper into the two outside holes,set the timer to drain and pull out the timer,if it starts to drain and spin then you know the lid switch is bad.hope this helps.

Top Loading whirlpool washing machine.


Could be the top lid switch. If the timer has stopped moving (you can no longer hear it clicking along) good chance that's what it is. When it has stopped try pushing hard down on the top of the lid AND/OR put a piece of plastic (or something ) into the lid latch switch... See if it continues on with the wash cycle...

Mine just went bad this week. Bought the part for $25...
