If this is a Whirlpool manufactured TOP LOADER, you need to check your lid switch. This is the most common cause of the problem you are experiencing. Symptoms may include, filling and stopping on the intial fill cycle, stopping right after the wash cycle, not advancing to rinse or spin cycles, and a wash tub that will not drain.

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:

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 you have questions, or need additional assistance, please post back and let me know. The lid switch is a very simple repair that you can easily perform without the assistance of a repairman.

If this advice does not help you enough, repairclinic.com has a Repair Manual you can order to assist you with all your repairs. The part number is 1170635 and is priced at about $20. Searspartsdirect.com also has a repair manual for about the same price. Part number 4314044L. I hope this information is helpful to you.

replace lid switch

where yout timer asymbley and controls are a screw in the bottom left and right corner remove and flip timer assymbley back towards wall in dead center of cabinet there is a quick disconnet for the cord disconnect the complete following steps..

there should be another quick disconect usually sitting horisontal that usual for your lid switch remove and jump across the two outside wires reconnect power and put washer on drain and spin if it starts to spin this means the switch connected to this connector is bad called a lid switch which controls the washer not to spin if the washer lid was left open this is a safety mechanism and must be replace with a new switch i donnot reccomend leaving this switch jumped out even though you could do laundry untill your part comes in.....

My washing machine does not complete full cycle it washes and then shuts down at rinse cycle. When advanced over first issue it will complete the cycle.


Your problem is going to get worse, really soon. The DC motor on the bottom of the washer needs to be replaced. The windings inside the motor have shorted together and cause it to draw too much power, shutting down the washer. The motor is expensive, home warranty covered mine.
