After learning how to take apart my waher I saw the lid switch aseembly was falling apart. I ordered the new one, came in about 3 days. As soon as I figured out how to take the old one out the new one went in with no problems and was very excited to have my washer working again.

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.

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 advance. Thought it was the timer until checking our partselect.com Their site led me to believe it was the lid switch. Replace that part and the washer works perfectly

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.

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 ordered lid switch and was amazed just how soon I received it. I watched the installation video for that part and followed it exactly how it was shown. I must say that I was really worried about tearing into the washing machine but with the instructions given I was able to replace the switch in approxamately thirty minutes. Thanks to PARTSELECT and their awesome customer service. I have saved this site to my favorites just in case I need to return for more parts on other appliances.

After my brother told me what the problem was. I looked on line to find the best deal for the part. I was thrilled to find a video on how to change the part. My back was bothering me so I walked my daughter through the process. She did great and she was pretty impressed that I knew how to change the part. I wanted to take the credit, but had to fess up. I did tell her I'm not just another pretty face!!!
