Must slam the lid on our whirlpool washer to get it to wash after it fills with water.


The lid switch need replacing or adjusted. When the lid is down something pushes the switch down. It could be back at the hinge or a slot elsewhere in the top.

I HAVE WHIRLPOOL TOP LOAD GSW9800PW2 WASHER, IT FILLS, THEN STOPS (SHUTS DOWN) UNTIL YOU SLAM THE LID DOWN MANY TIMES, THEN IT FINISHES EVERYTHING NORMAL


I would recommend you check your lid switch. Slamming the washer lid will only compound the issue and eventually will cause the lid to warp and additionally break the lid strike (if equipped). Due to the frequency of use, the lid switch does wear out and it is the most common cause of these symptoms. Its also an inexpensive repair. If the washer fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle or drain, this is commonly caused by a lid switch malfunctuion. The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug.

If the switch is not activated by a lid strike, it will activated by a hinge actuator located next to either the left or right lid hinge. You will need to remove the operator console in order to access this type of switch.

NOTE: On this type of lid switch the lid hinge has a small rod that is used as an acutator to toggle the switch. In many cases, you can adjust the rod by bending it if the switch is not making contact.

If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

If parts are needed, a replacement can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all of them for the best price.

This is a very simple repair, that usually costs about $25 to $35 to repair yourself. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

New water pump, cleaned trap, checked little vaccuum hose and it wont do final spin. No errors on panel and everything else works fine


If your washer fills to the correct level, agitates through the wash cycle, and then drains, I would check the door safety switch for proper positioning and switching operation. The switch should have minimal resistance (closed circuit) when it is depressed and high resistance (open circuit) when released.

WHDRR418G1WW WASHER WON'T AGITATE OR SPIN, NOT MAKING NOISES. FILLS AND DRAINS FINE.


sounds like you have a broken lid switch on the washer, maybe someone slammed the door or placed or stood on top of the washer, a broken lid switch won't allow washer to go into spin mode is a safety device so if is on spin cycle an someone sticks their hand it the machine stops an not breaks your hand.

broken lid swtich

good luck leave some feedback thanks!

GE washer wont spin or wash


It sound like a lid switch issue. 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 washer to get to the switch. Look if the switch is broken or loose. In case it looks OK mechanically, it might be defective electrical and should be replaced. Good luck!

My washer won't stop draing as it fills


Does the washer makes a full cycle properly and only problem is water's constinously draining ? If this is the phenomena, verify that the pipe discharged to the drain hose (the pipe that water going out from the machine)is at washer height up to one foot higher. Goog luck !
