I can't seem to be able to lift the top of the washing machine to access the lid switch. It appears the clips holding the front of the top do not release.

The load finished on my whirlpool cabrio washer (topload) but the machine won't unlock the lid?


you need to replace the lid lock. the latch probably broke in 2, and the broken part is whats keeping the lid closed. if you have clothes inside you can open the top by using a putty knife to release the front clips holding the top of the machine down. push each clip in and lift up. you will also be able to access the lid lock this way.

Washer won't spin WHDSR316G1WW will not spin. All belts attached.


It could be the door switch assembly. By inserting a 1/2 inch paint scraper between the front panel and the top about one inch from the corner you can release the spring loaded clip that holds the front panel on. Remove the front panel and remove the two bolts at each corner holding the clips that hold the top on. Lift the top to access the lid switch and test with an ohms meter to see if you have continuity when depressing the lid switch. If no continuity, replace the switch and reassemble your machine.

Admiral washer wont spin or drain


Possible lid switch problem, can be shorted out to prove, open the top complete lid for access. To do this insert a flat blade 4" from each side at the front panel between the front panel and lid to release the clips, lid will now lift and switch is on the underside of the lid RH side, short wires and test spin, replace switch if machine runs, do not leave machine with switch shorted and ensure supply is isolated as necessary.

I would like a diagram of the parts to the fabric softner holder to reinstall back into washer


two clips hold the top on they are located in the gap between the top and the front. insert a knife in between the top and front on each side while maintaining a little upward pressure on the top. the top will lift up from the front. The top will hinge on two clips in the back of the top. Once you pivot up the top you will be accessing you lid closed switch which is located in the top of the machine good luck.

Kenmore Elite washer will not agitate after fills with water. It appears that the switch in the lid is broke. Tried to lift up the top of the washer (where knobs are...but could remove all but the big...


The knobs do not have to be removed......

To access the lid switch, first lift the console by one of three ways.
  • 1. The trim on either side can be pried off from the top, grasp and pull forward to expose to expose a screw.
  • 2. Look in the back of the console, in each corner there will be a screw, unscrew until the console can be pushed forward.
  • 3. insert a putty knife under each corner, push to release a latch.
With console lifted:
1. You will find a lid switch connector (white in color). Unplug the switch from the connector.

2. There will be two brass colored clips. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver down and away from you and the clip will release.

3. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Tilt and slide cabinet forward to remove.

If you need further assistance, let me know

Lid Switch


First of all, unplug your washer before attempting to remove the console. I believe your washer has release tabs under the console at each front corner. Simply slide a putty knife straight in from the front at each corner and push in while lifting up. You should feel the release tabs push in and the console will pop up. Once you have the console removed, carefully lift it up and lay it back over the rear panel of the washer in its resting position. Be careful not to damage the small plastic hinges that hold it in place. Now you will need to perform the following steps: 1. Under the console you will find the lid switch connector. Unplug the switch from the connector. 2. There will be two brass colored clips. You will need to remove these to remove the machine casing. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver away from you while holding into the groove and the clip will release. 3. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Now pull the case from the frame by lifting from the back first. You do not have to remove it all the way from the frame. Just enough to gain access to the switch. All there is to the switch is a couple of screws holding it in and a ground wire. It's a pretty easy repair job. Once you've completed your switch installation, make sure you get the case back on the frame correctly by following these steps: 1. While looking down through the lid opening, place the front lip of the machine case UNDER the washer frame and start leaning it back onto the frame. There are four small cleats that must fit into four slots on the case or the washer will vibrate. Make sure the frame is seated properly, lean forward from the front of the washer, grasp both sides of the rear panel and pull towards the case. The rear panel should be seated and flush with the casing before inserting the retaining clips. 2. Insert the brass-colored clips into the slot on the washer rear panel first, then push straight down into the opening on the top of the washer with some force. If you have the case seated correctly, the clips will snap back in. 3. Make sure you plug the connector from the console back into the lid switch receptacle and close the console. I hope you find this helpful. If you have any questions please let me know by posting comments.
