SOURCE: replacing lid switch

someone, Im not finding that model number. Going by the first six digits Im assuming that this is a regular top loader and not an Oasis washer. If so, remove the end caps on the consol by pulling them off. Remove the screws under each end cap and flip the consol up. Unplug the lid switch connector and snap springs holding the cabinet on. The whole cabinet will pull forward and you can get at the lid switch. Check out the pics and post back...Catriver.

You can replace the switch, it appears, without lifting the lid. I've ordered the repair manual (LIT4314044) but I can feel the connector and wires. It appears that the lid switch can be replaced without taking anything apart. There does appear to be a screw on the back that holds the ground in place.

SOURCE: Whirlpool washing machine "lid switch" is broken

Found online:
Disconnect everything, power first. Keep the drain hose above the top of the washer if the bucket’s full of water. If there are clothes in it, remove them to a water-tight location (like a cooler or something).
Put the unit on an appliance dolly and get it onto the driveway before removing the drain hose from the rear of the unit. Water will gush out for a while here.
Unscrew the two hex bolts at the top of the unit that attach the plastic tabs to the console. Unscrew the screws in the end caps that attach it to the top of the cabinet. Unscrew the two hex bolts at the base of the rear panel that attach it to the base.
Pull the console forward and up a little to dislodge it. Slide it out of the way enough to get access to the two brass clips. Put a flat-head screwdriver in the hole towards the front and pry the clip forward a little to release it. Remove both clips. This releases the rear panel from the top of the cabinet.
One cable goes from the console to the top of the cabinet: this is the lid switch. Disconnect it.
Pull the cabinet forward now that everything is detached. It helps to have someone holding the console and rear panel while you do this. Remove the cabinet.
Place it on something to prevent scuffing, like a few towels or a small animal. The lid switch is the only device here. Unscrew it from the ground (one hex screw) and from the inside of the lid (two Phillips screws). Push the grey tube holding the wires out of the clip holding it in and release the plug from the top of the lid.
Take this to a parts shop and ask for another. It’s around $25-50 depending on how desperate you look.
Snap the gray tube back in, screw in the ground and switch. Close the lid: it should click now. If not, check that you actually screwed the new unit in properly. Yes, the new one.
Replace the cabinet and the rear panel, then the clips and the console. Replace all screws and bolts. Make sure there are no spare parts. Reattach all the cables and hoses and plug power in last.
Test it by putting it on a small load and let some water into the tub. Then stop it, move to spin dry, and start it with the lid open. Nothing should happen. Close the lid (you made sure to replace the drain hose, right?) and it should start spinning and pushing out water.
Congratulations, you saved over $100 and only lost a few hours of your life doing it.
And now you know where my morning went.
Pro tip: don’t let the lid fall down anymore. Place it down, don’t drop it.

Good day,
Common problem, Change the switch, and make sure if it is the model with a plunger for the switch mounted on the lid, that that be replaced as well.

How do i remove the casing to replace the lid switch

It fills with water then shut off. So if we hit the lid a few times and turn the dial our selfs it will kick back on.

The most likely failure is the lid switch. It can be found as item 11 here:
for model LSQ9564J (Q0)


To gain access to the lid switch you lift the top by releasing the spring lips with a putty knife. The are about 4 inches in from the front corners. Press in and lift the top from the center front of the tub access. You have to release both clips to lift the top. Then
lift it straight up pivoting from rear.

Then it is a matter of removing the lid switch mounting screws, disconnecting the connector and replacing the switch.

Closer view of replacement switch:

This should get things back to normal. I would use a meter and check for continuity on the old switch before ordering a replacement. The old switch could just have been loose or the lid switch actuation tab bent down too far. (Lift it up and test lid)

Thanks for choosing FixYa

I can't figure out how to open it to fix the basin it fell off the frame and I am trying to put it back on. I have had this problem before and fixed but cannot remember how to get it open

There are two spring clips, one each in line with the left and right edge of the lid, where the top meets the front of the cabinet. Insert a putty knife at these points and push in to release the clips. Lift the panel from the bottom clips.

Belt fell off my kenmore dryer,and i cant figure out how to get into cabinet to replace belt any help?

The lid on the dryer needs to be lifted. Open the door and look up at the underside of the lid. You will see several screws. remove them first. Then slide a putty knife between the lid and the sides about 3-4" back from the front of the drier. There are spring clips in this area on either side. You may need to pop the lid up. Do not use a screwdriver as you may crack the porcelain finish. There should be a belt diagram inside.

Whirlpool LSB6300PW2 Won't Agitate or Spin

if you lift andclose the lid do you hear "clicking" noise??? i bet not. simple repair, lift the lid and with a hollow shafted screwdriver(1/4in nutdriver or similliar hollow shaft implement)you fell with your hand the bottom half of the left side lid hinge. as you open and close the lid you can fell the opposing end of hinge under the top no need to dissasemble you can fell it right there. when you find it simply slip the hollow ended shaft over the hinge and apply pressure towardds the rear of unit.While doing this the top will want to close( your pushing against the hinge).. after appling slight pressure youll bend it slightly, enough to activet the lid switch mounted to the rear of the main lid assy.

Hot point dryer

the drum has dropped
the drum is suspended on felt pads to seal the drum edges, nylon guides at the front, and rubber tyred thrust rollers to withstand the torque of the motor and belt at the rear.
the usual cause is the rollers have failed, common fault, easy fix, cheap too
good rollers look like this
1ac2db2.jpg worn rollers like this
try not to run the dryer till the rollers are replaced, the extra strain will break the belt,

  • unplug dryer(220v is Not Fun)
  • remove lint screen
  • undo screws inside lint screen holder, screwing it to case lid (so lid can tilt up)
  • with putty knife or other blunt blade, release spring catches under front corners of case lid
  • raise case lid
  • remove screws 1/3 way down front corners of body holding front panel on
  • remove door switch cable from door switch
  • lift door off set aside
  1. drum motor felts and bearings are now accessible.
  2. pull tensioner fully agains spring
  3. remove belt from motor pulley
  4. lift drum and withdraw fully forwards
  5. with drum removed check support rollers for free movement, check drum slides and/or drum felts for wear
  1. loop belt loosely around drum at wear marks from prior installation
  2. reinsert drum onto rollers bearings slides felts as installed.
  3. loop belt around motor pulley
  4. pull tensioner pulley against spring to end of its travel
  5. loop belt around tensioner pulley
  6. relax tensioner pulley to tighten belt
  7. rotate drum by hand to ensure belt is aligned

Lid swith

Open the top of the unit by placing a putty knife beween the top and the front panel about two inches in. There is a spring lock that you need to push in, then lift the top. Once you lift the top, you will see the lid switch. Remove and replace. Let me know if you need further help. Jim
