Sounds like you could possibly have a lid switch problem. The switch may be loose or not making good contact. As you open and close the lid, you should hear a "clicking" sound as the lid switch is activated. If you do not hear the switch, first make sure the lid switch screw under the console is tight. If the screw is tight you may have adjust the lid hinge that activates the switch. You will need to remove the operator console, unplug the lid switch connector and remove the outside case to access the switch. This is accomplished by performing the following steps:

1. First of all, unplug your washer.
2. Remove the operator console. There are generally three types of consoles and how they come apart differs:

a. The washer may have 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.
b. You may have a console that has removable end caps. They can be removed by gently prying up on the top of them from the rear on each side. You may have to use a small screwdriver for this. The caps should pop right off. Once removed, you will need to loosen a screw under each cap. Once you have the console loosened, 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.
c. A third type of console has screws holding it to the top of washer in the rear. Remove the screws and the console will pull towards you, then off.

3. Under the console you will find a square white lid switch connector. Unplug the switch from the connector.
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. Remove the casing from the frame, so you have enough room to gain access to the switch.
7. The switch is located on the right hand side and is activated by the lid hinge. Slowly open and close the lid while watching the switch. Make sure the rod is inserted into the switch correctly, and that it activates the switch as it closes. If the switch is not engaging, sometimes you can adjust the rod by bending it. If this still does not prove succesful for you, replace the switch.
8. 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. Replacement parts can be found at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your COMPLETE model number and the lid switch will be located under the "Top and Cabinet" heading as item number 11 (part #8054980). You may also check repairclinic.com. They carry the SAME part and sometimes offer a better price.

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, and 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 BEFORE you reassemble the console. This is easy to forget.

This is a simple and inexpensive repair if you wish to accomplish this on your own. A replacement switch will cost you about $22. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you require further assistance.

    Washing machine stops working


    I search in the internet on regards to the problems with the Whirpool Ultimate Care II and found out that many others had the same problem as I did. Some solved this issue replacing the switch, so i decided to do the same.
    I opened the machine and saw that the switch was not working properly, it was not doing any contact, so whenever I open or closed the lid, nothing was happening. I did a house fixing, with some duck tape i was able to make the system work, and now the machine is washing everything again.
