Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Washer will not start without hitting lid.I have a Super Capacity Plus Top Loading Washing Machine, Model #LSQ954PW2 and it will not start the agitation without me hitting on the lid.It seems like whatever the lid is supposed to make contact with to start the agitation is no longer happening without me giving it a sharp hit on the lid. I don't know where to look for the contact or what I can do to fix this problem. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If you look at the lid while opened,you will see a small pin that when closed,goes into a small opening on the washer and contacts with the lid switch.

Washing Machine will not spin , also looking for Manual


The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
Here is a link to the part you need.

Normally on top load machines open the lid and look toward the back hinge area inside the lid. It is usually on the back there. It may also be posted on a white sticker on the back of the machine.

Does not spin


The close pin most likely broke the switch. Unplug the washer, remove the screws that hold the top and flip it back and remove the cabinet. with the cabinet off it is easy to replace the lid switch. Cost should be $20. to $30.
