Lid Switch

PartSelect Number PS11722098

Manufacturer Part Number 3949247V
Manufactured by Whirlpool

This is a lid switch for a washing machine. The pin on the lid pushes on the lever of the lid switch to tell the washing machine that the lid is closed, which allows the wash cycle to begin. The washer will not spin if the machine senses the lid is open. The tools youll need for this repair are a Phillips screwdriver and 5/16 nut driver. Be sure to disconnect the power supply and fill hoses from the appliance. When reinstalling the harness, take notice of the flat edges on the plastic terminal; they should face towards the front of the washer. This is a genuine OEM part.

This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, KENMORE®, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.

The washer stopped full of water. The lid switch had broken.

I unscrewed the 2 screws on the back of the console (part with the knobs), and then flipped the console back. Unplug the plug the connector that is coming out of the top of the washer. This connects the lid switch to the washer. Use a screw driver to pop off the brass S brackets that attach the washer housing to the washer back panel. Remove the washer housing by tilting it toward you when standing in front of the washer. When the housing is on the floor, you can see the lid switch inside the top of the washer housing. Remove the old lid switch and then replace it with the new one. Reassemble the washer in the opposite order. Replacing the housing was the hardest part of the whole process. Be sure to catch the lip of the FRONT of the washer housing UNDER the frame that the washer is sitting on. The sides of the housing should go on top of the frame. Patience is a virtue on this part.

Washer wouldn't drain or spin but washed fine

I checked the lid switch and it looked a little wobbly so, I figured this was the problem. Ordered the part from parts.com (so easy) Took the back off the washer which was a little challenging. unscrewed the 2 screws holding the lid switch and reached down and removed the wiring attached to the switch from the clamp and unplugged it from the housing.Inserted the new switch replaced the screws and plugged it in very easy. The hard part was putting the back on the washer. It was a little difficult because of the 2 metal clamps that hold the back, otherwise very easy. I am a girl and I did it!!

Washer quit spinning

After taking the washer apart, it was quite easy installing the lid switch assembly. The most time consuming part of the job was taking the washer apart and then putting it back together. The replacement part was installed easily and rather quick. Instructions came with it.

Lid safety switch

I watched the video sent to me in an e-mail and it went smooth as silk. when putting the outside shell back in place one needs to remember to keep it tilted away from the front of the machine so it will clip into place. the video was a great help!

Washer would not drain or spin during a regular cycle.

Followed directions from your how-to video. My son helped me and everything went fairly well. We had a little bit of difficulty replacing the washer cabinet. Ended up we needed to tilt it on the front side as it kept hanging up when we failed to do this. After figuring that out all went well and I am a happy camper with a working washer. Thanks for the video it made all the difference in my having the confidence to undertake this repair. I really could not afford to call in a professional and am grateful to your site for the information provided.

Washer stopped would not drain or spin

After putting in the problem in google saw several you tube video's on possible causes. All listed a bad lid switch could be the problem. I removed the 2 screws that held the switch in place. The switch was broken into. I ordered a new switch from partsselect web site. The site also provided a video to showed how to replace it. Hardest part was reinstalling the cabinet. This fixed the problem.

Broken lid switch

My wife was very distressed when the washing machine stopped working in the middle of the cycle, and she had to bail water out and finish the load by hand. I asked her to descibe exactly what happened. From her story, I entered keywords from the broken washing machine tale of woe. Online, I found parts-select, which correctly identified the problem as a broken lid switch, and, had a video of the correct proceedure to install a new one. I went to the useless appliance, and lo and behold, the plastic fittings on the lid switch were in fact broken. I ordered a new lid switch from parts-select, and after the part arrived, followed the installaion video, pausing it after each step, and repaired the washer. Washer works, and so does the wife. Thanks parts-select!
