SOURCE: replacing lid switch

someone, Im not finding that model number. Going by the first six digits Im assuming that this is a regular top loader and not an Oasis washer. If so, remove the end caps on the consol by pulling them off. Remove the screws under each end cap and flip the consol up. Unplug the lid switch connector and snap springs holding the cabinet on. The whole cabinet will pull forward and you can get at the lid switch. Check out the pics and post back...Catriver.

SOURCE: how do I get to the lid switch to replace it on my washer

Pull of the end caps #14 & 11 on the diagram. Remove the screws and the front panel will flip up. Then there are 2 clips connecting the bac to the cabimet. Snap those out and the the WHOLE front of the machine comes off if you tilt it forward. Go to sears.com and parts to bring up any model for anything and you can kind of see how things go together. Good luck.

No problem. What you want to do is this, remove the screws from the back panel first to remove that metal plate protecting the wires. Once off you need to take off the two covers on the sides of the control panel. There is one on each side, just pop them off. Once off you will see there is a screw under there holding the control panel in place. Remove the screws and that will lean back. Next take a flat head screw driver and put it under the lip of the lid on the front of the washer. I mean the lip that is about an inch down from the top on the front. Pry up and the whole lid will pop up. You will see the lid switch there held in by a screw, follow the wire to where it plugs in and unplug it and replace with the new one. Let me know if you have any other questions and if this was helpful to you. Always happy to help and good luck.

Washer fill with water model # LA4800XTW0 then just sits there no agiate no spin water will then drain once switch is manually advanced. Lid switch problem? OR direct motor coupler?


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your post, if you mean manually advancing the timer it will drain, it's a coupler. If you mean manually activating the lid switch, it is the lid switch or lid switch strike.


( this is based on the most common Whirlpool, Estate, Kitchen-Aid, Roper, Kenmore, Inglis top-load washer, not necessarily applicable to ALL...based on the model provided, it cover's yours)

I have a kenmore series 80 washer. the lid switch is not working, so i pulled it out. what's the replacement part and is there a place to buy it near zip code 20650?


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

The lid switch failure is definitely a common top load washer problem. Here`s how you can repair it pretty easily...

( this is based on the most common Whirlpool, Estate, Kitchen-Aid, Roper, Kenmore, Inglis top-load washer, not necessarily applicable to ALL...but with a model number I could say if it cover's yours)

The actual part number for yours will depend on the complete model number. Here`s a helpful link for changing it out,

http://videos.wittysparks.com/id/3098139337

The lid switch will look like this...

macmarkus_632.jpg
or this...depending of course on the model,


macmarkus_749.jpg

If this is something you think is not within' your scope of expertise please call a pro. I think you'll be fine with the tutorial video.

The switch can be had at most brick and mortar appliance part stores or on-line vendors such as "searspartsdirect.com" or "repairclinic.com" to name a couple. Good luck.

Washer fills up with water. and does nothing else. what can be wrong.


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description "washer fills up with water. and does nothing else" it sounds like you`ll need to replace the lid switch, but first...

Here`s how you can check it pretty easily...

( this is based on the most common Whirlpool, Estate, Kitchen-Aid, Roper, Kenmore, Inglis top-load washer, not necessarily applicable to ALL...especially those built in the past 1-2yrs. the complete model number would distinguish if it applies to your particular model )

Lift the lid, if you observe the underside of the lid there will be a plastic "strike" or "actuator" that goes into a hole when the lid is closed.

Check the hole where the actuator goes into the cabinet and insure you can see a gray oval shaped piece. If so take a small screw-driver, pen/pencil or something small enough to fit thru the small hole and try activating the switch by pushing it down ( machine must be in the agitate or spin cycle ). If you don't see it, the switch has likely broken loose and needs to be replaced.

If it start's to function than the switch is not being contacted properly by the actuator on the lid and likely is due to the switch being worn...unless the actuator on the lid is broke, if so there`s the problem.

Make sure the switch is being held in place via the two screws along the side, if they are loose tighten them, if it is broken, it will need to be replaced.

Here`s a helpful link for changing it out,

The screws that hold the lid switch loosened all the way, and will not tighten back up. How do I open the machine to secure the lid switch? Thank You - Km


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description, "the screws that hold the lid switch loosened all the way, and will not tighten back up"
it sounds like you`ll need to replace the lid switch, but first...

( this is also based on the idea its a whirlpool made top load, but you haven`t specified )


This is a common problem with these type of units since the assembly is made of plastic, fortunately changing it is pretty easily...

Will not spin


That is the lid switch. It can fail in many ways: Mechanically it can break but the internal switch be ok. The switch internal can fail but mechanically it can look and work ok, the strike itself can be broken or the lid inges could be loose so look for all of that. This video shows how to replace the lid switch and the next one behind it show various brands and styles of direct drive models

IT SPINS AN BANGS OUT OF CONTROL ON THE SPIN CYCLE


There are three things that can cause this problem. Here they are.
  1. Suspension spring missing or broken
  2. Tub balancing spring missing or broken
  3. All four feet not on the floor at once. (Needs leveling)
  4. Ballance ring has dried out or leaked out.
Here is how to check and repair the list above.
#1. Tilt washer backwards so that you can get under the front. Check the large springs and make sure all three are in place on the three points of the triangle base.
#2. Makes sure that this spring is also in place. If so they may be weak and need to be replaced anyway. These are more important than they look.
#3.Set machine back down. Now pull on machine so that the back legs come of the floor. Now set machine back down. Doing this levels the legs on the back.
#4. Open lid and pull tub to one side so you can see the top of both the inside and outside tub. On top of them is a plastic piece that covers the top of both. Shake this and listen for water sloshing. It should have water inside that helps balance machine. If it's dry, you will need to replace.
Please go to www.partselect.com and enter IP4400 in the block where you enter your model number. This will bring up a blow up of every piece of your machine and where you can find them inside the machine. If you click on the diagram that's labeled Machine Base Parts, all the parts I listed other than the ring #4 will be in the diagram. You can see where they go, their part number and you can also order them. I have found that they have the best price on parts most of the time. I sure hope this helps and I'm sure it will solve your problem if I didn't confuse you with my rambling. Good luck and have a great day.
