Remove screws from rear of timer console, pull console forward and hinge it up to expose brass colored clips. Remove these clips and unplug lid switch connector. The cabinet will now hinge forward and you can remove it to access the lid switch.

Washer will not spin r drain model whirlpool la7680xmwo

Sounds most likely a broken/defective lid switch. The lid switch on a top-load washer is a safety switch that detects whether the top-load washer lid is closed. The lid must be closed when the basket spins; some top-load models require that the washer lid be closed before the washer drive motor runs (thus no draining). If the lid switch isn't properly detecting whether the lid is closed replace the switch.

Washer stopped after filling

I know this may sound like a stupid question but "is the lid closed completely "? if so open the lid and take a plastic knife and depress the safety switch on the top of the machine and see if it works. It will be located on the top of the machine usually it is an oval shaped hole under where the lid closes down on it. If that works then you can open the top of the machine and adjust the safety switch.

My Kenmore Elite Oasis HE model number: 110.27072603 washing machine shows LID error code. It wont work at all.... went half way through cycle... help.

this washer has a lid switch problem...or possible main board failure, but lid does concentrate on the lid safety switch. If you remember when you open the lid it stops..well, its a safety feature and prevents tub from spinning with lid open...this one is more difficult to service if your not use to working on washers...try unplugging machine and leaving off for awhile...does the door lock? check switch for lid fault

Lid will not engage safety switch , closing lid does not engage safety switch , i have to wedge something in it

Either the pin on the lid has broken, or the switch mounting bracket has broke or the screws losened and the pin cannot push the switch enough. If the switch is mis-positioned, you'll have to open the washer top and check out the switch mounting. Goodluck< Macgivor

Need to know about safety switch on washer lid

First, this machine has an electronic motor. Check to see if belt is broken. If not then unplug for 2 minutes, plug back in and open and close lid 7 times slowly. This will reset motor. A common problem with this machine. I dont think it is the magnetic lid switch.
