SOURCE: Washer fills with water then does nothing

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:

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.

I was going to wash a load of towels and the washer filled up but I realized it wasn't enough water in it so before I could set the dial for more water, it stopped filling up so I set the dial for more...


Look around at outlets that are close by and make sure you didn't trip one of your GFCI breakers or plug in something to the same outlet and make sure you have power at the outlet where the washer is plugged into.

My washer filled up with water during regular beginning cycle and once fill washer just stopped. I feel like this happened before and it was something that may have gotten stuck in the drain??.....I move...


Hello LazyOne

The motor is locked out until the water level requirement is met. The level selector switch is probabably having issues, try rotating it back and forth between small / medium / large loads. If it starts to fill on larger load sizes, it will be the switch itself. If it doesn't do anything at all, it could be the switch, but most likely it is the level sensor. Both are located in the compartment behind the controls panel.
