The washer would fill and agitate but would not spin

I discovered that the washer lid switch housing had fractured around the 2 screws that hold it to the rim of the washer. When the lid was lowered and the pin pushed against the switch lever, the entire housing assembly would lower so the switch could not activate. I found PartSelect through an online search. There was also a Youtube, how-to video that was very well done and made the whole process very easy. I ordered the part online Wednesday afternoon and it was delivered by FedEx late Friday morning. In less than an hour after that I was able to replace the part and get the washer up and running. This was the first time I used PartSelect but when I have future appliance needs, I will check here first. Wow and thank you Parts Select.

Googled problem "Washer won't Spin", or something like that.This led to a video (showing my problem) on YOU TUBE by Parts Select which led to the wedsite for Parts Select. Wedsite showed my problem and solution. Entered make and model. The part was available, I ordered it. When it I place my laptop by machine and followed the instructions, step by step. 1. Unplug power. 2. Disconnect water supply. 3. Unsrew (2) screws on the top rear electronics housing. 4.Unscrew (2) screws at the front of the electronics housing. 5. Flip the housing to the back. (my model was a little different I had some clips I had to move around) 6. remove the metal clips that hold the lid / front cabinet from the rear. 7. Disconnect the little power coupling. 8. Pick the lip / shell up slightly upward from the rear to detach cabinet from base. 9. slide forward. 10. Unscrew the lid switch ( you could have done this before). 11. GO underneath the cabinet and detach the lip switch from the clips and there is one screw. 12. remove the old switch. 13. Replace the new in reverse order. 14. Replace the cainet back on the base, raise up slightly and make sure the little pegs go into the little slots that are in the front of the base. (you'll feel it snap into place). 15. Gently let down the rear of the cabinet. (It to should snap into place). 16. Replace all the connections in reverse order. 17. Connect water supply 18. Connect power. 19. GET BACK TO WASHING CLOSE.

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.

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

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

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.
