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.

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.

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

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

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.

Your excellent video needs to be modified (edited) at its end to show and state that the washer case needs to be slipped under the lip of the front of the washer frame. Otherwise, the case will not be held down by the clips on the back of the case that hold it to the frame. This detail is not shown on the video and has to be found out by trial and error. Otherwise, the video is simple and effective. Thank you for the excellent video!

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.
