Ok " unplug washer from wall , ( can not stress enough that there can be no electricity running to that machine)

depending on the washer most have screws on the back at top, you will have to take them out, ok so far , most lids have metal clips holding tops on , pry top up and it will pop loose.

got that far, now look at inside of the top where lid opens and you will see a small micro switch

two screws hold switch in place, electrical wires to switch are cliped on they will pull off

take micro switch to appliance parts store they will match it
take make and model of washer with you

screw in new micro switch and attach wires to switch , and snap
washer cover back on, attach screws to the back , and your all set.

see you can do it

I believe you're referring to the lid safety switch when you say "spin switch". Do not operate your machine without this safety switch! The switch / wiring harness are not very hard to install... here's how-

---UNPLUG THE WASHER FROM THE ELECTRICAL OUTLET---
1. Remove console, depending on vintage, there should be a couple of screws that will allow you to rotate the console up and back.
2. Remove 2 gold clips at rear of top. These clips are the only thing that retain the top / lid / cabinet
3. Unplug lid switch harness (small white connector at rear of top)
4. Rotate the cabinet up a few inches at the rear and pull it straight off. The top / lid / cabinet will come off as a single unit. The entire lid switch and harness are connected under the top w/ a couple of screws and a few spring retainers.
5. Buy replacement parts at a local appliance repair shop, including a new striker (the part that pushes the switch down when you close the lid).
6. Reinstall everything reverse from above. When you rotate the cabinet back on, make sure you have the front edge under the base channel and push inward on the rear corners to engage the cabinet on the rear base tabs.

Good luck.

I have a Whirlpool Gold Ultimate Care II washer (MOD# GSQ9669LW0) The washer stopped, was full of water and will not restart on any cycle or settings.


This problem sounds like a broken lid switch. Power to the drive motor is routed to the lid switch and if the lid switch fails, the machine will fail work on any cycle. Verify this by bypassing the lid switch.

Disconnect power to the washer then remove the screws securing the console to the rear of the cabinet.

Pull forward and up on the console and lay it back on the hinges.

Disconnect the lid switch harness connector by pressing on the tab located in the middle and pulling it up.

Jump a wire between the outer terminals of the disconnected connector from the top of the cabinet then reconnect power. The problem is indeed the lid switch if the machine starts. Check the lid switch plunger and the lid switch attachment to the cabinet. It may not activate properly if the mounting is loose, re-tighten it. Replace the lid switch if the plunger is intact and and if it is mounted tightly and properly.

The cabinet is attached to the rear of the washer by two brass-colored retaining clips. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the turned-up edge of the clip, located on both sides, and then pry back to release the clip from the slot in the cabinet.

Open and hold the lid while grabbing the cabinet front opening then tilt the top of the cabinet toward you by pulling the cabinet away from the base. This releases the front and back slots of the cabinet from the tabs in the front and back of the base.

Using the side of your leg and/or body as a support for the front of the cabinet, carefully lift up the cabinet and lay the front on a cushioned floor to access the lid switch.

Remove the lid switch ground and mounting screws then release the wire harness from the metal retainers. Pull the lid switch connector out and install the new lid switch in reverse order of the removal steps.

Bring the cabinet to the front of the washer then slide the front bottom rail of the cabinet under the rail at the base of the machine then lay down the cabinet into position. Make sure the slots in the cabinet sit into the tabs at the base of machine.

Reconnect the lid switch harness then push the retaining clips back down into position to secure the cabinet to the rear of the machine. Reinstall and secure the console to complete the repair.

The washing machine (Kenmore 80 Series) runs but doesn';t drain at the end or spin. We think it's a lid switch perhaps? Where is it located though and do you possibly have maybe a diagram to look at? Thank...


This is a clear evidence of a broken lid switch. Power to the drive motor is routed through the lid switch during the drain/spin cycle. The machine, therefore, cannot drain and spin when the lid switch is not working. The drain pump doesn't work because it is directly coupled to the rear spline of the motor. Replace the lid switch to address the problem.

Release the console from the top of the cabinet depending on the model of your machine then pull forward and up on the console and lay it back on the hinges.

Why does my washer now flash lid


The lid switch is not reporting to the machine that it is closed.
Access the lid switch and replace it.

#
1

Disconnect your Kenmore Oasis washing machine from its power source. Make sure that your washer is unplugged before beginning to disassemble it.
#
2

Remove the screws that hold the control console to the top of your Oasis washer. In some Kenmore Oasis models, the two screws may be covered by plastic end caps. After removing the screws, set them aside until you are ready to replace them.
#
3

Flip the console up, back and out of the way.
4

Locate the cabinet clips on the top of your Kenmore Oasis washer. These clips are located toward the back of the washer top and would be hidden by the console if it were not currently flipped up.
#
5

Slide your screwdriver underneath the metal cabinet clips. Wiggle the screwdriver back and forth to gently pry the cabinet clips free.
#
6

Disconnect the group of colored wires that plug into the top of the washer from the control console. These wires control the lid switch on your Kenmore washing machine. To disconnect, grasp the white plastic clip and pull gently.
#
7

Remove the washing machine cabinet. Tilt the cabinet towards you, and then lift the entire cabinet up and off of its platform.


It appears your lid switch has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

How do you remove lid on kenmore washers model 238221


If you are referring to the exterior washer cabinet, the following link explains how to remove the cabinet, so you can access the interior components:

Read through the steps provided, thoroughly. The procedure is much easier than it looks.

If this is a Whirlpool manufactured TOP LOADER (such as Kenmore), a no spin problem can have several causes. Most commonly, this is caused by either a lid switch malfunction or a broken motor coupling. The following link explains how you can diagnose the problem and repair it yourself:

Whirlpool washer trying to replace lid switch


There are 2 screws on the back of the console. one on each side facing downward. Remove them and pull the console forward and lift. Under the console you will see 2 brass looking clips on both sides going into the cabinet. Take a screwdriver and pop these out of the cabinet. Unplug the lid switch from the cabinet. Pulling the cabinet forward from thr top, the whole cabinet will come off exposing your lid switch. Reverse steps to assemble
