The washer lid is held in place with spring clips, use a putty knife to pry the lid up gently and expose the switch

Trying to replace the lid switch

Did you unplug from the wall? Safety first.

You should be able to slide the wires off the terminals. Or you may have one that has a molded pulg that has a safety retainer clip that has to be depressed to unplug it.

Same with the switch, it should have a retaining clip that must be depressed to remove it. OR it has a screw holding the assembly on.

Water is now filling, washing going round in drum but not rinsing or spinning.

Spinning and Rinsing require a safety switch to be enabled by the closing of the washers lid.

Check around your lid and washer lid opening to find the mechanism that is used to activate the safety switch mounted just under the lid opening inside your machine. Sometimes it is a plastic plunger(protrusion) on the lid that mates with and opening(hole) in the machine around the lid opening to cause this switch to close. Other times it is on the hinge side of the
lid and the protrusion is formed right into the metal of the lid itself to push a plunger on the hinge side to close this safety switch.

Most spinning problems on machines are cause by this lid safety switch. Washing machines cannot spin if the lid is not closed and this safety switch is not working to switch power to the spinning motor.

KitchenAid KAWS777E Washer will not spin

We are having the same problem. Try the lid switch. It is located just under the oval hole in the rim of the washer. There is a plactic pointer on the lid that pushes the lid switch down so the basket can spin. It is a safety thing. The plastic lid switch costs around $43 and is really not a problem to put in. Good luck!
