Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

Replace Whirlpool M# LSQ9645KQ1 top loading washer lid switch

I followed the instructions posted by jsrock516 and all went well until I tried to remove the top case from the frame. I was able to bypass the switch temporarily to operate the machine. Unfortunately, I can not just pull the top case from the frame since there are screws located underneath each corner which attach it to the frame. I suspect I have to remove the back panel somehow to gain access to these screws, any suggestions would be appreciated.

How does one replace the lid switch?


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 (###.#######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.


The Kenmore / Whirlpool top load uses a reversing motor to initiate the pump for draining and the transmission to spin.

If you cannot hear the motor trying to turn the pump, (but the washer will agitate) the problem points to the Timer, or the Lid Switch.

Try to bypass the Lid Switch by removing the Console and jumping the two outermost pins on the switch.

Following is a description of how to release the console for access to the pins.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

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.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=131&osCsid=913ba652cd504fb162f87d892bcb427b

With the jumper in place, try to re-start the washer.

If it works, the Lid Switch is a relatively inexpensive part.

Replace lid switch assembly kaws850


The following link explains how to replace a lid switch:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385199-replacing_lid_switch_whirlpool_top

On the particular model you have listed, the lid switch should be located under the console near the right rear lid hinge.

You will need to use the steps in the link provided to remove the exterior case to access the switch to see how the actuator and lid hinge interface. You washer is manufactured by Whirlpool and uses Whirlpool parts, so these instructions will apply.

This is a very simple repair, but if you have any questions along the way, please let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

NOTE: If you have not pruchased a new lid switch yet, the part number is 8054980. It can be purchased at appliancepartspros.com for about $18.

Hi my washing machine is not working properly,when we close it, not getting start.


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.

It sounds as if your Lid Switch is broken.

Following is a Whirlpool PDF of the operation and maintenance of top load, direct drive washers with a section on how to by-pass the switch.

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

Follow the first couple of sections of the following

ILLUSTRATED DESCRIPTION OF REMOVING CABINET THRU TRANSMISSION.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

for how to tilt the console back, use a short insulated piece of wire between the two outermost pins on the lid switch and try the spin cycle.

If the washer works, follow the instructions on removing the cabinet to get at the switch and the Sears site to see exactly where the switch is to replace it.

Ho do you access lid switch

To get to the lid switch on a Kenmore Top Load, you have to remove the cabinet.

See GURU JSROCK516 Description of how to remove cabinet and access the transmission. http://www.fixya.com/support/r699497-replacing_gearcase

Basically, you will remove two covers if your model has them, two screws, unolug the lid switch from the console and pull the cabinet forward.

Washer Won't Spin / Drain. Need New Belt or Pump? Need Diagram?


based on feedback that i received on the forum, i realized that the washer doesn't have a belt (it's a direct drive machine). then, i replaced the motor coupler, which was a lot easier than i thought when i posted this question.

detailed instructions can be found on an excellent post by jsrock516 on fixya.com. even though the washer is labeled 'kitchenaid,' look for whirlpool, top-load washer, tips. then, search for replacing a motor coupler.

jsrock516's instructions look complicated, but they're really just a very detailed, step-by-step guide written so you don't need any pictures. read through them before you start, and then follow each step as needed. great stuff.

Will not drain or spin


The symptoms you are describing are usually caused by a bad lid switch. The washer will fill, agitate, but when it starts to go to the rinse cycle, the washer stops and will not advance any further. The lid switch is located on the right hand side of the wash tub opening on most top loader machines. Check to see if it has come loose. There are two screws holding it in place. Additionally, there should be a small plunger on the lid that pushes down on the switch to activate it when the lid is closed. Make sure this plunger is intact. If your washer does not have a lid switch mounted on the right hand side of the lid, it will be located on the left hand side in the rear under the console. A simple test is to open and close the lid and listen for a "clicking" noise. If you can't hear the contacts closing, your switch is probably bad. In the case of the rear mounted lid switch, there is an arm on the lid that activates the contacts. Sometimes the arm becomes bent and will not close the switch contacts. Generally, the repair is simple and a lid switch usually runs about $35. If you post back with your model number I can get an exact part number for you and give you step-by-step instructions on how to replace it. Let me know. I hope this helps you.
