If you are referring to the lid switch, or the lid strike, ths is will cause symptoms that may include, filling and stopping on the intial fill cycle, a wash tub that will not drain, and stopping right after the wash cycle and not advancing to rinse or spin cycles.

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

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3557193-replacing_a_lid_switch

If the link does not work, copy and paste to your web browser.

On some models, the lid switch is located under the top casing by one of the lid hinges. You will know if you if you have this type of switch, because It does not have a lid strike and the small hole on the right hand side of the wash tub will not be present. This switch is actuated (toggled) by a rod on the lid hinge. With this type of switch, if you locate it and it can be toggled by hand, you may only need to adjust the actuator by bending it slightly.

NOTE: You do not have to drain or bail the water from the washer tub to perform this repair. Once a defective lid switch is replaced, the washer should drain normally.

A replacement lid switch (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The average price is about $20 - $30 if you perform the repair yourself. Prices differ between sites so shop and compare. If the model number you posted this question under is correct, the part number for a replacement switch is 3949247. The lid strike part number is 358684.

If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please post back and let me know. If your model number differs from the one you listed this question under, please provide me with the correct information. The lid switch is a very simple repair that you can easily perform without the assistance of a repairman.

If you would like to purchase a Repair Manual to assist you with all your repairs, repairclinic.com has one that you can order on line for about $20. The part number is 1170635. Searspartsdirect.com also has a repair manual for about the same price. Part number 4314044L. I hope this information is helpful.

Washer machine loads the water but it doesn?t start the cycle, what can be the problem?


Top loading washers are known for this. Open the lid and on the left hinge on the lid there is a little tiny spring loaded pin. Most likely this pin has snappd, hinge is loose etc etc. The washer thinks the lid is still open and this small peice needs to be replaced. Get the model number of hte unit, got to searspartsdirect.com and find that part. It is really simply to change out and its about a ten to twenty dollar repair in total.

Washer fills with water. agitates, does'nt finish cycle. still full of water.


The most common reason for this problem is the Lid Switch. If the lid is not closed, washer will not go into extract (drain) & then spin cycles. Check the lid to see if the plastic piece that pushes the switch down is broken off. You can simulate "Lid Down" condition by depressing switch with a screwdriver. It's located on the right side of the wash drum / tub. There is an oval slot there & you should hear & feel a click when pressed down. Look directly above that slot on the lid bottom for the plastic piece that is commonly broken off.
If it is, you can apply a temporary fix by wedging something in the slot to depress switch while you order a replacement part.

*****WARNING*****

Operating washer with this interlock defeated can cause severe injury!
Washer will continue to spin with the lid up!

You should use this technique for troubleshooting purposes ONLY!
Please reply if this is NOT your problem and I'll post other causes & solutions for you.

undue clips remove moter drive coupling peices can be remove by pulling or can use large flat blade and work from oposites sides till plastic parts come off
reassembly place outside parts one on transmission one on moter install center part on transmission side
line up pins from moter to line up with 3 holes in center part normally top clip i install first so gravity assist with install of bottom clip reinstall screws plug in harness line up pump with moter shaft and reinstall clips run check if no noise from moter when lid is closed then lid switch might be bad the new style of washer is front serviceable there are two screws bottom outside corners of panel remove
light pressure pull panel forward then lift is hinged at
top back roll back there are two brass clips catch front of clip with flat blade screw driver and move top of handle toward back of machine clip will pop off wiring for lid switch on top of case needs to be unplugged outside case will tilt toward you then can be lifted off alignment tabs at bottom front there are two screws where lid switch is held to top of case can be seen when case is removed good luck ron

Washer gets to spin cycle and stop


95% of the time, it is your lid switch.
The part that the lid makes contact with when it is closed (Litle plastic peice)
Depending on your make, Your can put a small pen in the hole and push down to verify if the piece is broken or it may be in the back part of your lid built into the back hinge.
Most local Appliance parts companies can get that part they just need the model and sometimes the serial number.
If you don't have any close you can usually get lid switch from these companies.

Kenmore washing machine model 110 wash cycle stops


DOES IT DO THIS ON EVERY WASH OR SOMETIMES? IF SOMETIMES, CHECK LID SWITCH( THERE'S A LITTLE HOLE WHEN YOU OPEN THE LID, ON THE LID SHOULD HAVE A LITTLE PLASTIC PIECE THAT GOES IN THAT HOLE. THE SWITCH IS UNDER, INSIDE THAT HOLE. YOU CAN GET A PEN OR KEY TO SEE IF IT'S BROKEN.)

Water enters and washes but no spin


check to see if lid switch is not activated or is broken, or more correctly open. You can test by inserting jumper in place of switch. If unit spins, switch is bad or missaligned. Most time I find the little plastic peice that in on the lid is broken off and there the switch is not pushed down when the lid is closed.

I idea behind the switch is to keep you from sticking your hands in a spinning washer.
