Replace lid switch on whirlpool washer # LSB6300PW2


The following link explains step-by-step how to access the lid switch on your washer:

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

The lid switch on your washer is located by the left lid hinge under the washer casing. Simply remove the mounting screws, any ground wire and slide off the actuator rod of the lid hinge.

NOTE: In some cases, what appears to be a bad lid switch is a simple matter of adjusting the actuator rod by bending it slightly to make better contact.

If you have questions about this repair, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

How do I acces the lid switch on my kenmore washer


The following link explains step-by-step how to access and/or replace the lid switch on a Kenmore top loader:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

Most lid switches are located under the right hand side of the top panel. Some, are located adjacent to either lid hinge. In any case, you still need to remove the washer exterior case to access it. The switch is held in place with a couple of mounting screws with a ground wire attached. This is a very simple repair, but if you experience any difficutlies please let me know. I hop this helps you.

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.

Our 9-year old whirlpool washer fills up with water and washes fine but then won't move to the rinse cycle. The water doesn't drain, nothing happens after "wash."


The symptoms you describe are typical of a defective lid switch. This is an inexpensive and fairly simple repair. If you open and close the lid, you should hear a distinctive "clicking" sound as the lid switch is activated when the lid closes. If you hear no sound, you need to check the following:

Some washers have the lid switch under the right-hand side of the wash tub opening and is activated through a small slot on the wash tub casing rim by a small plastic piece on the lid called a lid strike. If this is the type you have, make sure the lid strike is still intact or the switch will not activate. Check the two mounting screws next to the slot and make sure they are present and tight. These are the mounting screws that hold the lid switch in place. If they come loose it can prevent the switch from activating.

Newer models have the lid switch mounted under the washer casing in the left-hand rear adjacent to the left washer lid hinge. The switch is activated by a rod on the lid hinge. Sometimes a simple adjustment of this rod can correct contact problems.

If you make all these preliminary checks and the switch still does not work, replace it. The following link will give you step-by-step instructions on how to replace the switch:

Washer does not want to start spin cycle


Check your lid switch. This is a common failure with this model washer and it is a simple repair. If you open and close the lid, you should hear a distinctive "clicking" sound as the lid switch is activated when the lid closes. If you hear no sound, you need to check the following:

Washer will fill up but wont agitate, spin or drain


This is a typical symptom of a defective lid switch. As you open and close the washer lid, you should hear a "clicking" sound. If you do not, the lid switch is probably loose or broken. The lid switch is located on the right hand side under the washer casing rim. It is activated through a small hole by a plastic piece on the lid called a lid strike. If this piece is broken off, the lid switch will also not activate. Inspect the switch mounting screws (two of them on along the wash tub rim) and make sure they are tight, and make sure the lid strike is in place. If you need to replace the switch, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r397101-replacing_lid_switch

If you require replacement parts, you can find them at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and the you can find the lid switch listed under the "Top and Cabinet/Literature" heading as item number 9 (part #3949247). The lid strike is item number 20 (part #358684). This is a simple repair that you can accomplish yourself and the cost is minimal. If you need further assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

No drain


If this is a top loading washing machine, this is a common symptom of a defective lid switch. If you try opening and closing the lid and do not hear a distinctive "clicking" sound, your lid switch may need to be replaced. Some lid switches are located on the right-hand side of the lid opening with a small slot. It is activated by a plastic piece called a “lid strike” on the lid itself. Make sure the lid strike is not broken off. This will keep the switch from not working. On some model washers the lid switch is located on the left-hand side, in the rear, mounted under the casing near the lid hinge. It is activated by a rod on the lid hinge. Sometimes the rod can be adjusted if it is not making good contact with the switch. In either case, if the switch is not activated, it will allow the washer to fill and maybe agitate, but will not start the rinse or drain cycles. If you diagnose it and wish to attempt the repair yourself, the switch costs about $35 and is fairly simple to replace. Post back and let me know if this is the correct type of washer you have. A make and model number would be handy in providing you with a better solution. I can give you step-by-step instructions on how to repair.
