Perfect part replacement.

This was the perfect replacement part for my lid switch that went bad. The replacement was a little difficult; only because you have to disassble the control panel to disconnect the lid switch pig tail connector. Also, the grounding screw is screwed in a position where you can not get to the screw, so the best method is to cut the wire and connect it to the new grounding wire on the replacement lid switch and use a lot of electrical tape and I even covered the electrical tape in silicone to water proof it just in case.

I followed installation instructions given by other users on here and it went perfect. Saved myself the expense of buying a whole new washing machine just because of a stupid plastic cheaply made lid switch.

As far as this website/company, however, I am very happy with the easy of finding the correct part, the availability of the part and the very fast shipping I received. And of course, the best benefit is the cost of part versus the cost of a whole new machine (which I am sure Whirlpool had in mind). So, congrats to PartSelect.com. Amazing customer service and that system they use to find the parts you need is very good indeed.

Thanks PartsSelect.com and thanks to the user users who posted the instructions to replacing this part.

Lost spin cycle

Sir, I have been repairing appliances for 45 years, for myself and friends. I repaired this washer while I talked on the phone with my sister, so with the help of your video I was able to turn a job I thought was going to be extensive to a one handed job, and I did it in 15 minutes.
I am so looking forward to the next repair job, so I can use your web site once more. One word, fantastic.

The top part of agiator would not spin

I watched the video, it went step by step, the screws were not the same as on the video but not hard to figure out how to take control top off. The rest was easy, the video was so easy to follow. The only problem I had was trying to put the cabinet back on the base, I had to have my husband help me, otherwise it was easy. This is the first time I have ever tried to fix a washing machine, I had been looking at new ones, but I decided to try my hand at fixing the problem and I am glad I did,my husband is so proud that I did it by myself that he is telling all our family and friends. I will shop this website again. Thank you

Washer lid switch broke off

Un-screwed the control panel and lift it up. Release hinges holding the cabinet base of the washer. Un-plugged the wiring harness - unscrewed the old switch, put on the new, put the washer cabinet base back on and attached the control panel.
