How to Change Lid Switch on Roper RAS6233KQ Top Load Washer

<span>Disconnect both hot and cold water line from the water inlet valve. Mark the hot and cold so you don't get them mixed up. There are 2 philips head screws at the back of the machine, holding down the console to the cabinet. One in each rear corner. Slide the console forward slightly and tilt back. There are 2 metal clips that hold the cabinet and top to the back panel. Use a screwdriver and pry both clips up. ( pay attention on how to put the clips back). Disconnect the harness to the lid switch. Now stand in front of the cabinet and tilt forward towards you while pulling forward. Cabinet should slide forward. Once the cabinet has been separated fro the back panel, lift the lid up. On the right side of the lid you will see 2 screws. remove screws. (theses are the screws that secure the lid switch to the top). Now go to the back of the cabinet at the opening and look in the corner where you just removed the 2 screws, You will see a green ground wire screwed to the cabinet. Should be a 5/16 screw. (not 100% sure). Remove screw. there are 2 small clips holding the tubing for the wire harness in place. Popping both clips out should release the lid switch. Now disconnect harness holder from the top of the cabinet by pressing in the plastic clips at the side. Pay attention to the direction of the plug. Put the new plug in the same direction as the one you removed. Once you have inserted the plug and it snaps back into place, thread the tubing back behind both metal clips and clip those back in place. Secure the ground wire back to the cabinet. Now mount the lid switch back to the cabinet. You can do this with the lid up. Secure both screws into the lid switch. Close and open the lid to test the lid switch. You should hear a clicking sound. Now its time to put the cabinet back on. <br />Standing in front of the cabinet, tilt it forward towards you and line it up with the base frame. Tuck the front bottom lip on the cabinet under the lip of the base. Make sure that the tabs sticking up from the base lines up with the bottom of the cabinet. Be patient, may take you awhile to get the cabinet back in position. <br />Slide the back panel forward back in place. make sure it tucks into the back of the cabinet. Once its in place, now you can reinstall the two metal clips that secure the back panel to the cabinet. reconnect the harness to the lid switch. Tilt the console back down into place inserting the tabs on the side into place on the cabinet. Once in place slide the console backwards into place. You can now put the 2 screws back that hold the console to the cabinet. <br />That should do it. Plug the washer back in and start using.</span>

I took the door off but cant get the top to lift off wash neptune model mah5500bww

You have to take out the four screws in the soap dispenser. take out the screws across from the ones you took out for the door this will allow the front panel of the washer to come off. Underneith the front panel are 2 5/16 bolts holding down the lid. Good Luck

The paddle has come loose inside my dryer how can I get the lid open to get to the back of the drum

take the 2 screws out of the door and take out the other 2 screws opposite the hindge screws,close the door,now grab the sides where you took the screws out of and pull forward and this will remove the front panel,take out the 2 top 5/16 screws one on each side that go through the metal holders,they are the screws closest top the top lid,remember how the holders hook into the top cover and the catch is in the middle of each piece,now lift the top and spin the drum so the baffle(paddle) is on the top and you can get at the screws to tighten them,the top doesn't lift to far up so you might have to lay down and tighten them from the floor,this is how i've done it ,hope this helps

When it comes on and fills with water it stops working, and you cant drain it

The lid switch is the most likely the problem. you should hear a "click" when you open, and when you close the lid. If you dont hear a "click", check the lid switch. It is located inside the control panel. remove the screw in the back of each end cap, they are at a slight angle. remove the 2 hex-head screws at the top-rear of the control panel, then slide the panel toward you and set the panel down on the timer knob. the lid switch is on the left in the cabinet top. make sure its seated and clips in place. they are plastic, and the "bracket" on them break and dont stay down. if this is the case, replace the lid switch. If the lid switch is ok, you have a bad timer.

I have opened the lid and unscrewed the lid contact but now i cant find where the connecter is at how do i get to it?

Is this a older model whirlpool..Like a regular traditional topload. and you unscrewed the 2 screws holding the lid switch. If so, you need to unscrew the top councel. 2 screws on the back of the councel at the corners. unscrew, then flip top councel over. then youll see some clips holding the back panel to the whole cabnet. unclip the, with a flat head screwdriver and then the whole cabnet should come off..lift it a little and pull towrds you and you switch should be hanging under the cabnet somewhere if you look under the i said if this is the traditional top load washers....i would need a model number tho to see...but if it is jus put it back together how you took it apart and make sure you dont kink the clear hose when you put the cabnet back into place. Make sure the cabnet seats right on the frame at the bottom..hopefully this helps...

No Spin No Drain

Lid switch is most likely the problem, if lid switch is visible under lid on right side then this is older design and common problem switch.
if you have console frame covers on front sides, snap off from top, a screw is at bottom front corners of console, remove and pull console forward and fold back. If lid swich is hidden then you will see it at left on top of cabinet with console folded back. a 5/16 screw holds a green ground wire to cab. remove and switch will unclip with lid up. If lid switch was visible under lid then you need to remove 2 brass clips holding cabinet on top of base to back, pry with screwdriver to unclip. undo harness connection on cabinet top, this is your lid switch connection. sw body is held by 2 phillips screws, harness tube held by clips on underside of cabinet top. ground wire with 5/16 screw present at sw body. New versions of this switch have metel shield attached.
