I read the experiences of others on this site and determined that the problem was probably the lid switch. Used others experience in taking the panel off and removed the old switch and inserted the new one. The post to be sure to have the lid open was good and probably saved me some time. Overall, the fix was simple and the problem appears to have been solved. The lid switch got here the day after I ordered it and that was great service. Better than paying for a service call or new washer.

Cold water would not flow into washing machine

I disconnected the water lines and pulled the washing machine over so it was lying on its front. I removed two screws on the bottom edge of the back, and then puzzled over how to get the back off. I ended up removing the screws that held the control panel on, removing the wiring harness, and taking the control panel/head off. This exposed two metal clips that I was able to unhook. I unhooked the water valve from the back, disconnected the electrical connections, removed the water line, and replaced the valve. Then I puzzled about how to put it back together for a bit, and basically just reversed the order I took it apart.

I tried to remove the outer console to get to the tub wear pads easier. This proved difficult for me for some reason. So I tipped the machine on its back at about a 45 degree angle. You will see the tripod support holding up the tub. The pads lie in between the bottom of the tub and on top of the tripod support . You won't be able to see the pads since the are on the top of the support, but you will see the two insert tabs of each pad sticking out. There are about 120 degrees apart from each other. I pushed up on the tub and slipped the piece of wood in between the tub and tripod support close to the pad. Taking a screwdriver and hammer I punched out the wear pad insert tabs. You can replace the old pad with the new one by using some force with your hands. Some pop right in and some you need to use a little leverage, maybe with the piece of wood you used to hold up the tub. Be careful not to get the pads greasy, keep clean as possible. Worked great.

Removed the agitator. Then removed the nut holding the agitator shaft. I set the machine on its side. Working from the bottom, i removed the three bolts which hold the transmission/motor. I removed the wiring. Pulling the unit down and out of the shaft bearing. The clutch assembly is on the transmission/motor unit shaft. Remove the snap ring and retaining ring for the shaft. Replace the clutch unit in the reverse order. The hardest part to replace is the retaining ring on the shaft. Pay close attention on how everything comes apart and you won't have any problems. Saved myself a lot of money.

I had to find a point of reference first since item came apart in wash cycle and internal pieces fell out - thank goodness for YOUTUBE. Another guy was thoughtful enough to do a video on how the assembly came apart / went back together - a huge help for sure. Actual repair was less than a half hour after obtaining new part and seeing video. The 12 year old washer works like brand new - saving me close to 1,000 dollar replacement charges.

I never have and never will claim to be a mechanic. my wife said it had to be the lid switch. After opening and closing the lid I agreed. Took 2 screws out of back of top panel lifted control panel out of way and there was the lid switch just as part select custumers had said. $100 repairman fix, and I fixed it for a little over $20.

The video was well made and made repair easy. I like the fact the video also showed how everything went back. The most difficult part and most time consuming for me was putting the washer cabinet or housing back on. I had a hard time lining the sides onto the slot to lock in place....the minor cut on finger sustained during the process was worth it. It saved me from buying a new washer and the whole family are happy that they don't have to wring out the clothes before putting it the dryer. Thank you!

Everything worked perfectly---thanks to the suggestion of your call center agent. She suggested that since the replacement door handles were no longer available, I should consider repainting them--it worked like a charm. Please tell her she was a life saver. We rent that house in Fl and my returning tenants had complained about the discoloring refer handles. Thank you
