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.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
I watched the online video of a similar switch repair which gave me knowledge of how to make the repair myself. I did receive some assistance from my wife in putting the body case back in place. It basically consisted of removing 6 screws and unplugging the old wiring harness and plugging the new one in. The reapir cost $34.00 plus my time. It also took the parts a couple of days to come during which time we didn't wash any clothes. Watching the video made all the difference in me being able to do this as I had never made a washer repair before. $34.00 vs $500 plus. What a great bargain.

I watched the video on how to replace the lid switch and followed it. I was amazed at how well it went. The part was purchased cheaper online vs. the local appliance repair. Thanks to the video, I saved myself apx. $114.00 by not having to call an appliance repairman for a service call. Thank you.
The video that is available on the site was extremely helpful. I followed it step by step. Everything went well until I was ready to put the cover of the washing machine back on. That step ended up being a two person job. Even during the how to video the putting the cover back on took the repairman a few times. Doing this repair myself saved me from a huge repair bill.
I watched the repair video on parts select.com and was almost identical to mine. It did take me longer as I had to drag the washer out in the kitchen where there was more room to work on it. I rplaced the door switch acording to the video, put the washer back together per the video. All went well, dragged the washer back to the laundry room, hooked it all up and ran a test run. It worked perfectly . I have done a number of washes since the repair and it is working perfectly. I want to thank you for the repair part, which I almost bought locally for $16. more than the part and shipping from partsselect.com, the exellent r4epair video, and the super fast shipping . I will defenitely use partsselect.com when and if I need more repair.
After finding the part online, I watched the video and was able to change it out in about 20 minutes. It was literally 3 screws and a couple of clips ! 5 years ago I paid a repairman $159 for the same job! Thanks !
watched the videos on the partselect web site,they were very helpful.pulled the cabinet from around the machine just as described.changed the door switch with a phillips screw driver.i didn't lay the machine on its back to change the pump as was described in the video. i drained the water from the pump (2 cups),pulled the pump(it required alittle force)it was corroded on the shaft.used a file to clean up the shaft so i could install the new pump.installed the pump and cabinet.it all worked great and saved me alot compared to a new machine.
the reason i selected a bit difficult was my washer is outside on the backyard patio,it was dark,after work,during the week. i had the part in 2 days,instead of 3-5 days per when i ordered it.the video helped out a great deal.i just followed the video to do the repair which made it so much easier.if it was day light it would have been a quicker repair.thank you part select,you saved me at least a 100.00 dollars if i would have called a repair man.i hope this helps out other people when they have a repair like mine.thanks again,Roger.
Checked around for correct part number, PartSelect had the best price, even with shipping, and it came fast. I did watch a repair video that really helped (right on PartSelect site, very helpful). Pulled plug, moved machine out from wall, unscrewed two screws holding rear panel on, pushed it forward a bit, and flipped it over to reveal two clips (on on each side) holding the cabinet to the back frame. Also unhooked wire harness. Pulled and tipped cabinet forward to allow access to underside of cabinet. Removed old lid switch (two screws on cabinet top - under the lid) and pulled the wire out of the channel loops. Unscrewed ground wire from cabinet. Put new switch with wiring harness in and secured it with two screws. Attached ground wire to cabinet. Put wire in channel loops, and reconnected wiring harness on top side of cabinet. Toughest thing was getting the cabinet back onto the frame. Took about five tries to get it to latch correctly at the bottom front. Then lowered cabinet, scooted it back to the back frame, re-secured it with the two brass clips, flipped the control panel back, made sure the three locks fit and slide it forward a bit. Reinstalled the two screws on the back and that was it. Plugged it in, and tried an empty load to make sure it drained.
put in the model number on the website. Selected the symptoms. The site gave me the problems that normally fit the symptoms. And even the percentage of chance that each solution had of being the fix. The website also provided a video for the uninstall of the old part, which was the lid switch, and the installation of the new part. The video was excellent. I set my laptop up near the repair area, where I could play and pause the video. The entire repair took about 20 minutes. I am a customer of Parts Select for life now.
I did my troubleshooting on line. I took the water pump off, flushed it out, and used a coat hanger to ensure the hoses were not obstructed. Put the water pump back on and reassembled the washer - still would not drain. Checked the lid switch by listening to hear it click, which it did. So, I assumed it was the water pump, so ordered one. Two days later my son-in-law said he experienced the same problem, but it was the lid switch. I decided to check the switch again, this time using my hand to see if it was securely fastened. As soon as I grabed the switch, it sprung apart. I removed it and followed the instructions on how to hot wire the connection for a by pass, and the washer drained. Needless to say I ordered a lid switch assembly. Now I have a new water pump as a backup :) Lesson learned. Opinion: the lid switch assembly is very cheaply made.
We followed the instructions in the 'How to' video, just as it is shown. The part itself took about 10 min. to remove the old one & install the new one. The clips are quite stiff so we used a screw driver, the same way as shown in video.
Found the part @ your company, which is a shut off switch when the lid closes. My neighbor came over (electritian)and took a look @ it with a voltage meter and found the problem. The switch was broke, therefore ordered a new one took a look @ how it came apart and switched it and it was fixed. I saw a brief video of how to fix it and followed how to do it and that was that. the repair was simple, just use a screwdriver to loosen the 2 brackets on the bck after you loosten the top button rack. fold over the frame while disconnecting a few clamps and wires fix the repair and put bck same way. My suggestion is to watch a video, take some notes and off you go...enjoy.
Found a video on youtube on how to put the lid switch assembly in and was able to make the washer work again. Yippee!
took of and attempted to repair, found we could not, ordered the part, it arrived 3 days (2 business). The longest time was spent trying to put the outer shell back on the rail and position it at the back. Other than that real easy. a 27USD fix vesus a $900 replacement.
I watched the video on line and my husband took it apart and put the switch in. It was pretty simple
