I was able to diagnose the problem because I saw the broken part hanging down, and after I called an appliance repair company and described the issue, I was quoted $280.00! I'm a newbie handi-woman, so I really appreciated the video that was posted on the partselect.com web page along with the lid switch part information. I placed my laptop nearby, got my tools out and watched, paused and performed the steps. Make sure you leave yourself enough time to clean out underneath and around the washing machine after you remove the washing machine cabinet, because if you're a clean freak like me, after 16 years, a lot of muck had accumulated. The repair was easy enough, I probably had the most difficulty with lining up and reattaching the cabinet back to the washing machine body. Overall, a good do-it-yourself project, and I am thankful to partselect.com for the awesome service and great repair video they had available.

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

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.
