My washer was purchased new in 1989. Are parts still available?


The problem is your lid switch. That "hole" you mention that you are putting a wedge in is where the lid switch is. It is activated by a small acuator on the washer lid that pushes down on the lid switch when the lid is closed.

If the washer fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle and drain is commonly caused by a lid switch malfunction. 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 the switch is not activated by a lid strike, it will activated by a hinge actuator located next to either the left or right lid hinge. You will need to remove the operator console in order to access this type of switch.

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

A new lid switch (if needed) can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price.

If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please let me know. Please post back with a complete model number (located on a nameplate around the wash tub opening) with your questions, so that I may be able to provide you with better assistance. I hope this is helpful.

I would recommend checking your lid switch. If the washer fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle and drain, this is commonly caused by a lid switch malfunction. 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 not activated by a lid strike, other models have the lid switch located under the washer casing next to one of the lid hinges. It is activated by a rod contacting an actuator. The mounting scews for this type are located under the operator console.

Washer gets to spin cycle and stops. It appears


Hi, if this is a whirlpool model machine, you can't just remove the top. The whole cabinet needs to be removed. You can change the lid switch without removing the cabinet. Remove the two screws holding the lid switch. Pull the lid switch toward the middle of the opening and snip the wires. You can splice the new switch onto the old wires using wires nut connectors if you want. If you want to use the whole wire harnes that comes with new switch, remove the two screws that hold the control panel to the cabinet. now yuou can see the lid switch connection (easy plug in) located in the middle. Unplug the lid switch and force the connection downward. Remove the old switch and install the new.

I can get you part# or send you the part off my web site www.whirlpoolpartssurplus.com if you would like. I would need the model#

I hope this helps.

THanks
Vic
