Question about Washing Machines

Washer stops, won't fill, rinse or agitate

My Whirlpool LSR8433KQ1 washer stopped about an hour ago. I washed a small load with no problem. I put the second load in, closed the lid and walked away. When I returned the washer had stopped and the bin had water in it but had not completed the cycle. I turned the machine on and off and it did not start. I turned the dial to OFF and then went to the beginning of a cycle and it still did not start. I checked the circuit breaker but it was not tripped. I unplugged the washer and plugged it into another outlet and turned the dial to rinse&spin. Water came out for a second and then stopped. I plugged a lamp into where the washer was and it turne on with no problem. Is there a solution other than getting a new washer?

Check the lid switch. When you open and close the lid, you should hear a click. If you don't, then it's probably bad. You can test it for continuity with a multimeter. When the switch is activated, you should get a meter reading; if you don't it needs to be replaced.

Here is a picture of the switch assembly.

Will not spin on any rinse cycle


Hi, This washer does not have a belt. While the washer is agitating, if you lift the lid will it stop? Some models will agitate but not spin if the lid is up. It sounds to me like the lid switch might be going bad.
If you will get me a model #, I can look this up for you and give you a better idea.

Stops in the middle of wash cycle


Hi!

If the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
