Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.


Based on the info in your post, it sounds like a common top load washer problem. 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...but it includes your 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,

Your fill valve needs replacing. Not too expensive to change. This is all based on the fact that you have checked both feeds to the washer hook up and that the shut off lever is fully open.

Another posibility is the door lock switch is broken. When you open the door, on the middle right hand side there should be a small pin sticking out from the washer that the door pushes on.

Washer stops suddenly and water isn't drained out


Hi tieuvodanh; Sounds like the timer has gone out. If you can advance the selector dial manualy, and the machine continues to operate as it should, then this is the problem. Replacing the timer will require some advanced knowledge of washers and the ability to use a box of hand tools. A good handy man will be able to repair this for you.
