Question about Hoover Nextra HNT 2135 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Hoover My washing machine won't start because I slammed the lid down. I think it is because when you close the lid, the plastic part on the lid pushes something down (located on the left hand side, not in the middle by the switchboard), which I have found, like a metal rod, and it is lose now? Any help here?

    Hi there, I had the same problem, just insert a peg where the slot is and the machine will start. Make sure you pull the rod forward, and make sure the bottom of the peg is holding onto it. You can see the machine washing/spinning, so be careful. Lid will close fully;o)

Yep, you most likely are looking at disassembly of washer to re-install the lid switch mechanism. that metal rod likely leads to some sort of switch.

Whirlpool High Capacity washer, start cycle , it fills with water then no agitation, and no spinning.


next time send the model number,open the lid,look on the right side and there should be a hole in the top,that's the lid switch,it's used so the washer won't run if the lid is open for safety reasons,set it to spin and with a screw driver push down on the plastic piece in the hole,if nothing happens push in and release,do this a few times,if you don't hear a clicking sound when you push up and down the switch is bad or close the lid and open it an inch,close it and open it a few times,no clicking sound the switch is bad.

Want start unless you slam lid or push start knob in and out


HI, Check and see if the door hinge screws are tight. Sometimes the hinge loosens and the lid switch will not activet properly. It the lid is tight, you might have a lid switch going bad. The lid switch is located under the control panel. There is a screw in each corner of the control panel in the back side. Loosen these screws and lift the control panel up and it will rest on the hinges.
Ths lid switch is to the left and should have three wire to it. Parts# 8318084
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further or you need a place to order the lid swtich, please give my web site a chance at www.whirlpoolpartssurplus.com

Top loader washing machine - won't work unless I slam down the top door. Any suggestions? Thanks


I think it is in the lid switch. If the lid switch is malfunctioning on a maytag top loader it will not start washing. Probably by slamming the lid you are making the connection you need for the time being. It is located at the back underneath the lid in the middle. Follow the link and you will see and diagram and parts associated with your washer. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=A4910&productCategoryId=0153000&brandId=3048&modelName=MAYTAG-LAUNDRY&diagramPageId=00002&componentDescription=TOP COVER, CONSOLE & LID SWITCH

The switch that makes it think it's closed is broken.


You are referring to the lid switch. If it's visible, try tightening the screws that hold it to the cabinet (they may be loose and the lid strike can't engage the switch properly). If you can, feel underneath where the lid switch is located and see if it's broken from where it mounts (feels loose). Push the lid switch lever down, if it doesn't "click" or doesn't start the wash, replace the lid switch and you should be good to go.
If you want, post your model number to make sure it's the model I'm thinking of and I can also try and get you the part number for the lid switch.

Washer won't complete spin cycle


Try pushing down lightly on the lid and see if the spin cycle starts back up. On mine, the same thing happened because the small plastic pin attached to the lid was just barely long enough to push the switch that tells the washer that the lid is closed. The spin cycle will only run when that switch is pushed, i.e., when the washer thinks the lid is closed.
