Replace lid switch on whirlpool washer # LSB6300PW2


The following link explains step-by-step how to access the lid switch on your washer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385199-replacing_lid_switch_whirlpool_top

The lid switch on your washer is located by the left lid hinge under the washer casing. Simply remove the mounting screws, any ground wire and slide off the actuator rod of the lid hinge.

NOTE: In some cases, what appears to be a bad lid switch is a simple matter of adjusting the actuator rod by bending it slightly to make better contact.

If you have questions about this repair, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Replace lid switch assembly kaws850


The following link explains how to replace a lid switch:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385199-replacing_lid_switch_whirlpool_top

On the particular model you have listed, the lid switch should be located under the console near the right rear lid hinge.

You will need to use the steps in the link provided to remove the exterior case to access the switch to see how the actuator and lid hinge interface. You washer is manufactured by Whirlpool and uses Whirlpool parts, so these instructions will apply.

This is a very simple repair, but if you have any questions along the way, please let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

NOTE: If you have not pruchased a new lid switch yet, the part number is 8054980. It can be purchased at appliancepartspros.com for about $18.

The rinse cyle water won't drain.


For future reference, provide a MODEL number and whether or not its a FRONT loading washer, or TOP loading washer. It makes a difference in being able to diagnose a problem. If this is a top loader, this is a common problem with Whirlpool model washers, but shouldn't be a serious issue, if it's what I think it is. A washer that 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 you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

If the switch requires replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. Just use your model number as your search criteria. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price. If you still need assistance, please contact me and let me know. If my diagnosis is not correct, please post back and elaborate a bit more so I can assist you further. If your washer is not configured this way, or if you still have questions, please let me know.
