Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9564J Top Load Washer
<div class="solution-text"><span id="ctl00_ctl00_MainColumn_CenterColumn_ThreadSolutions1_Repeater1_ctl00_lblSolution"><span><span>The symptoms you describe are common for a lid switch malfunction.</span></span></span></div> <div class="solution-text"><span><span></span></span> </div> <div class="solution-text"><span><span></span></span> </div> <div class="solution-text"><span><span><span>If the model nuber you posted this question under is correct, the lid switch is mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike" or "Actuator") 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:<br /><br /><a rel='nofollow' href="http://www.fixya.com/support/r3557193-replacing_a_lid_switch" target="_blank">http://www.fixya.com/support/r3557193-replacing_a_lid_switch</a><br /><br /><br /><br />NOTE: If the washer is still full of water, 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.<br /><br /><br />Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:<br /><br />searspartsdirect.com<br />pcappliancerepair.com<br />appliancepartspros.com<br />repairclinic.com<br /><br /><br /></span></span>The part number for a replacement lid switch for this model washer is 3949247.
