The video on the PartSelect site was exactly right. Knowing ahead of time exactly what I needed to do and what tools were needed allowed me to correctly schedule the time it would take to do the job. The part arrived very quickly.

Timer would not advance

Actually I closely followed the video repairman's step by step instructions. Everything was just as he described and the replacement of the Lid Switch Assembly was simple--must have been because I could do it. I did make a list of each step the repairman suggested and took the list with me to the laundry room. This is the second repair I have made to the washer--replaced the inlet valve about a year ago. This was the second inlet valve replacement probably due to silt from our well after a storm. The first was replaced by our local repairman in 2001--to the tune of $77. With inflation I possibly saved $120 for the two simple repairs I made using PartSelect. Needless to say, I'm sold on PartSelect and their prompt shipping. Thanks

Wouldn't drain

I watched the step by step repair video and fixed it myself like a pro in about 40 minutes. What great guidance video and with a $26.00 part. This is my 5th fix it yourself appliance that I repaired myself with PARTSELECT. I remember in the past of my childhood. If something like this would have happened, my mother would have discarded the whole machine and would've struggled to come up with the money for a whole new machine. Thank you for giving away the secrets and telling an uneducated repairman how to fix these problems. Thank you ... Thank you! Clark

Washer wouldn't complete cycle

First, I found your site (I entered Whirlpool parts) and tried to diagnose the symptoms. Next, I found the part I thought was malfunctioning described by a list of symptoms on your website. What was very helpful was the installation video that was attached on you site for the specific part. The lid switch was identical to the OEM part that came on the washer. Installation went well. The hardest part was aligning the cabinet back on the washer. All in all, very satisfied with everything. Oh, the part was about 50% less than what I could buy it for in the city I live in.

Washer would agitate but would not pump or spin

I changed the lid switch exactly like the video on this site described. After following the video's directions, there was nothing to it. I priced the same parts on the manufacturer's site and they were $20 more. I placed the order on a Sunday night, regular ground and the order form stated that it would be processed Monday morning and to expect an average shipping time of two days. The part arrived Tuesday afternoon. Partselect is now in my Favorites folder. You cannot beat the price, video help, or quick shipment times. I was EXTREMLY IMPRESSED.

lid switch assembly was ripped and exposed to water

  • Customer: Louanne from Chapel Hill NC
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

I looked at the video, called a repair person thinking I couldn't do it. Emailed a friend who I hoped would volunteer to do it. He told me I should press on. Went over to the house and started following the instructions. Had to come back over to my house to look at the video for each section. If I didn't do that, I would take out something that didn't need it and would have to replace it. Once I got the part out, I ordered the new part. 3 days later it arrived. Again, I ventured from the other house to my house, looking carefully at the video each time and moving one step at a time. It took part of two different days but, for me, it was rewarding and empowering.

Washer would not drain/spin after wash cycle

Truthfully, I had ordered a new washer to be delivered within a couple of days and then talked to someone at work about my washer not draining. They told me it was an easy repair and told me to make sure to remember how the clips came out so I could put them back in. After watching the repair video, I seen how easy the repair would be and ordered the part. I cancelled the order for the new washer. That afternoon, I scooped out the sitting water and pulled out the washer. Since I did not think I would get the part for a couple of days, I cleaned around the washer and then proceeded to take the machine apart and take out the old switch. To my surprise, the new part came the next day and I was able to install it, put the washer back together to try it out. For less than $50.00, it was fixed.

the only hard part was putting the body of the washer back on... just would not line up...limited amount of room to work with.... but its done and working fine

Washer stopped working in the middle of process; turner would not switch to rinse; and so stopped with water in the tank.

Researched and found out problem was the lid switch; watched the youtube posting on how to replace the lid switch and ordered the part; instructions on the video helped a lot because I followed it and had it replaced in less than 30 minutes. Machine started to work perfectly with the new lid-switch in place.

I read the list of the most common repairs for this problem and ordered the lid switch. The video was very helpful, especially showing how to access that switch for the repair.
