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.

1. Removed wet clothing, evacuated water using Python No Spill Aquarium Maintenance System. No mess or water on the floor. 2. Turned off hot & cold water supplies, and unplug unit before moving. 3. Removed unit water supply hoses, and moved unit. The drain hose remained attached while moving to prevent spills. 4. Removed unit from laundry room, and took to the garage on a dolly.
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!!
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.
My husband did the repair. It was very easy and he had no trouble at all. Now my washing machine works again like a charm. Thank you so much. M. Shea
remove control panel, then washer cap. The replacement part was exact duplicate. Removed two screws,panel clips, slid off cap after disconnecting wiring harness. Removed three screws, took out old part, put in new part-slip cabinet back in place, buttoned it up,,,,finished.The video for replacing the part was first class and excellent!
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!
The video you provided to replace the lid switch was excellent, making the job a relative breeze. Thank you.
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.
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.
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!
The repair was very easy after watching the videos.
Used instruction off you tube.
Went like 1.2.3 easy as the video showed ty
I saw the video on partselect of my model of washer being repaired. So I ordered the part and it was delivered in less than two days. I followed the video instructions and replaced the part on my washer. I put the washer back together and tried a small load. I crossed my fingers that the lid switch was all it needed and when it came to the spot where it would stop it kept right on going. I have since washed several loads and everthing works great. Paying $34 dollars for a part with shipping is a lot cheaper than a new washer. Thank you
