you need to remove the slanted panel between the washer and the dryer. There will be 2 screws holding the top of the washer to the cabinet. Locate the screws on the back edge of the washer top along with the 2 brackets that hold the top.
Once the brackets have been removed, the washer top panel will pull toward you and lift off of the cabinet. You will be able to see the lid switch and test it. If you are testing the lid switch for continuity, remamber to activate the switch while testing. If the switch shows an open circuit, replace the switch.
Please let me know if this hhelps you at all or if I can assist you further.

CLICK HERE for the blowup diagram of your unit.
This can be a few issues - you will need to open it up and investigate further.
1. Drum Glider worn. (#1223)
2. Rear Bearing Failed. (#1212)
3. Broken/worn bearing support or shaft etc.
This unit is becoming increasingly harder to find parts due to its age.
Some parts are still available HERE should you take on this daunting task.
Thanks for using FixYA!!

Shirley, it may be the drain pump is obstructed or possibly the lid switch is broken. If you washed bath mats or rubber backed rugs recently i would go for the pump. If you washed a semi bulky item with a tendency to float I would go for the switch.
Get me a model number and I can help you with dis-assembly if you'd like further help!

Testimonial: "Thank you MrBob. I will get the model number over the weekend. :)"
you could have a broken belt or a frozen pump pulley. the leak has to be addressed to see where it's coming from. it could be from the pump hoses/connections. it could be the main tub seal that's leaking. if you're not handy with tools and test equipment, i suggest you call someone to have a look at it. these are problems that wont be resolved by pushing a button.
and thankyou for using this site. i hope you will continue to use this site.
if you have any further quesions or need further advice, repost another question. be sure to include the model number as well. you gave a good explanation, and that helps. anything you can think of can be of assistance
