Question about Estate TAWB600JQ Top Load Washer
I have had my washer for less than two years and yesterday it stopped at the rinse cycle. It is full of water and will not drain or spin. It only clicks like the agitator is trying to agitate but appears stuck.
If the washer fills and stops at the rinse cycle, and then
will not spin or drain, you more than likely have a defective lid switch.
If you open and close the washer lid and do not hear a “clicking” sound, the
switch has probably come loose, or has broken.
There are two mounting screws that hold the switch in place along the
washer rim. Also, inspect the lid to
ensure the small plastic piece that pushes down on the switch when the lid is
closed has not broken off. This is
called the “lid strike”. If the lid
strike is broken or missing, the lid switch will not activate. If you diagnose the problem and need to
replace the switch, you can click on the following link for advice on how to replace
If you need further assistance, such as where to get replacements parts, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
NOTE: You do not need to drain the wash tub to replace the switch. Once the switch has been replaced, the washer should spin and drain, which will prevent you from needing to bail water.
