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 lid switch will look like this...

Washer acts as though it is not even plugged in. Does absolutely nothing. How do I check to see if power is getting to the machine. nothing wrong with outlet or power supply.


Check something simple like the beginning of a cycle where the water fills the washer. You should at least hear the solenoid click on.

D/washer fills with water rinses when heating shorts out house


If this machine has been installed and worked for a while, are you sure nothing else has been pluged into the same circuit as the dishwasher and overloading it. If the element is actualy heating up I doubt anything is wrong with it to kick out the breaker. Check out what other stuff goes out with the breaker off.
