Question about Whirlpool LSR9434PT Top Load Washer
Aborcass, not trying to steal your thunder here...To remove the console, slide a putty knife under the front corner on either side of the console and push straight in while lifting up. This should release the retaining clips that hold the console to the top of the washer.

Look over the top of the control panel look straight down you see 2 phillips head screws on either side youll need to remove, the console will flip back giving you access to the switch..just for curiosity its not "clicking" when you close the lid therefore it fills and stops, doesnt spin or drain???? try this first.open the lid all the way, the left side hinge acts as the plunger for the switch.. feel under there open and close lid a little to help find the metal hinge. after finding the hinge place a 1/4 nutdriver(doesnt matter the size just needs a hollow shaft.) over the protruding portion of the hinge. still under the top but right there! when its on push the driver back(in essence bending hte armature back slightly). itll flex a bit as you push the hinge the door will push back(you got the right spot then). after you crank it back a bit try closing the lid now. did you hear it click??? your golden!!!!!!! no need to change.. reason for telling you this is for the most part the switch doesnt go bad but the lid /hinge isnt bent enough to make contact, and over time of swinging top into the fully opened position it actually bends to far forward to make contact. i have a box full of switched that other techs ordered and weren't needed. not saying they dont go bad ive seen that, but try this first might get lucky!!!!

Tips for a great answer:
Locate and remove the 2 screws that secure
the console to the cabinet top. Tilt the console back, and remove the 2 gold
clips, and disconnect the lid switch connector. Tilt the entire cabinet
forward, and off of the base. The lid switch can now be replaced
