You have to take the case off. take out the two screws on the control panel. they should be on the base of either the front or the back of the control panel. the picture is of one that is in the back. How do you open the - e23f106.jpg

these clips release the entire case, so you will have full access to everything you want including the lid switch.

Washer will not spin r drain model whirlpool la7680xmwo


Sounds most likely a broken/defective lid switch. The lid switch on a top-load washer is a safety switch that detects whether the top-load washer lid is closed. The lid must be closed when the basket spins; some top-load models require that the washer lid be closed before the washer drive motor runs (thus no draining). If the lid switch isn't properly detecting whether the lid is closed replace the switch.

Washer fills and does the wash cycle then stops. doesnt rinse or spin


Most likely your lid switch is broken on the washer. I(t acts as a safety mechanism to stop the tub during spin should you open the lid.)
The switch is located under the top of the washer on the right side of the lid opening. It is activated by a plastic strike on the same side of the lid.

My whirlpool top load washer won't drain and spin


This is likely to be a problem with the lid switch.the lid switch is activated by the lid stricker when you lower the lid.these machines will normally fill & wash without needing the lid closed but when it gets to spinning & draining the lid must be closed,so the machine is acting as though the lid is open.the lid has probably been dropped or slammed shut & this can break the lid switch from where it mounts with 2 phillips head screws.
