The symptoms you describe are typical of a broken lid switch. The lid switch is located under the washer top on the right hand side. It is activated through a slot by a small plastic piece on the lid called a "lid strike". Make sure the lid strike is still installed and not broken. Make sure the lid switch itself is not loose, as well. There are two mounting screws along the washer tub opening that hold it in place. If the screws become loose the switch will not make contact with the lid strike when the lid is closed. If you need to replace the switch or lid strike, the parts are available at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Washer Top and Lid" heading on the next page. The lid switch is listed as item number 22 (part #3355806) and the lid strike is listed as item number 16 (part #358684). Both parts combined will cost you about $30. If you have further questions and/or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

    This problem IS NOT associated with the lid switch, as that went out some time ago...and as a solution, I simply removed it, and direct wired it so that the washer always thinks it is closed.

Whirlpool Thin Twin randomly skips agitation during the cycle.


Did you ever figure this out? Mine agitates but instead doesn't start spinning and draining unless I open the lid. It then "clicks" and starts but it is strange that I have to do this to get it to spin.

Hello,

I would suspect the water inlet valve as being the problem,if it drains the water and spins the lid switch is going to be good.The thing exclusive to rinse cycles is that they only fill with cold water,and that is what i suspect the problem being is that it's not filling with cold water on the rinse cycle because of a bad water inlet valve.
