Washer would pump but not spin out on rinse cycle

I had a repairman come in several months ago and he said eventually I would have to have the lid switch replaced. He wrapped some electrical tape around the old switch and left. He did say when I wanted to replace it, it would cost me $69 for a service call and $129.00 plus tax for the part. I am a 69 year old female on a limited income and when I went to your site I found the part for $35.00 which included shipping. I watched the repair video several times and was confident enough to replace the part myself. I did and I found the hardest of the installation was getting the washer pulled out from the wall. Shipment was here in four days. I am very pleased with the results.

The whirlpool washer would not advance or spin.

I went online and found the Partselect.com website. I found the potential cause of the washer not advancing through the cycles and ordered the Lid Switch Assembly.It arrived via FedX in two days.I watched the online repair video two times, and followed the instructions. Repair went well; but the washer cabinet is awkward and I was lucky to have my teenage son help me with maneuvering it off and on the machine. All and all, I am thrilled that it works after the repair and would highly recommend Partselect.com

My washer machine would rinse or spin

My 14 year old son unscrewed the top part of where the switches are on the machine for controling water and off and on button. He unscrewed the two sides and removed the top part then moved the drum and took the old switch off and put the new one on. It took about 7 min.
