Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
My wife had left the lid open on the washing machine on accident and since then the machine will not drain or spin. At one point, if you pressed down on the lid near the lid switch, it would start and work. Now we get nothing. As soon as you push on the lid it will start and then when pressure is released, it will shut back off like the lid is open. Is this the switch that has gone bad?
HELLO: YES THE LID SWITCH IS BAD. TO REPLACE THE LID SWITCH YOU MUST REMOVE THE COVER ON THE MACHINE. FIRST REMOVE THE TWO PHILLIPS SCREWS FROM THE CONTROL CENTER ON TOP BACK OF MACHINE . TILT BACK THE TIMER AND CONTROL CENTER GENTLY. THERE ARE TWO FUNNY LOOKING LID RETAINER SPRINGS THAT HOLD THE ENTIRE THREE SIDES OF THE MACHINE TOGETHER REMOVE THESE WITH A FLAT BLADE SCREW DRIVER. REMOVE THE POWER PLUG FROM THE WASHER UNDER TOP. SLIDE COVER OFF MACHINE THEN REMOVE THE TWO PHILLLIPS SCREWS FROM THE LID SWITCH ASSY. UNPLUG SWITCH FROM COVER AND REPLACE WITH NEW UNIT . THERE IS ALSO ONE GROUND SCREW 5/16 THAT WILL COME OFF FROM UNDER NEATH THE COVER. THIS SOUNDS A LITTLE COMPLICATED BUT THE WHOLE PROCEDURE CAN BE DONE IN LESS THAN 10 MINUTES.
