CustomerRichard from Saint Louis MO

The device that indicates the lid is open/closed malfunctioned due to a forceful slam

After removing defective part and replacing it with the new part, no thanks to skimpy instructions that came with it. We discovered that it wasn't the lid switch assembly but, the hinges and washers? and the little plastic piece that pushes the plunger so we had to order those. Surprised they didnt' come today. The first order came almost the next day.

Washer wouldn't fill with water

Removed screws that held the control panel to the cabinet, found wiring diagram. Found I wasn't getting voltage past the lid switch when the lid was closed. Went to Partselect.com, entered model number, quickly found detailed diagram showing switch with price and availability. I ordered switch, received in 2 days. I disconnected the wiring harness from the old switch, I popped the old switch out, installed the new switch, reconnected the wiring harness and closed the control panel. I tried the washer and it worked right away. Saved at least $100 by not having to call repair man. Very happy with Partselect.com, will definately use again!

Washer wouldn't do anything

Took off the upper back that had 6 screws with a screw driver. Found the lid switch . Removed it after I figured out how to remove it. It was a little tricky without instructions. Putting in the new switch was a little tricky also. You have to angle the front of the switch in, pop it in and then push it back so it can snap in. Once I put it in, the washer started right up. I was very happy. Instructions would have been very helpful. I am very pleased with this company because I received my switch in a couple of days. I will definitely use this company again.

Lid switch stop working at second rinse cycle.

I followed the direction came with the part.

• I unplugged power electric wire from the wall.
• Unscrewed total of five screws from the back of the top console.
• Removed the top console to gain access the switch.
• I took pictures of the switch position for a future reference.
• Unplugged the switch wire by just pulling the plug.
• Carefully removed the switch and pulled the plunger out plunger assembly.
• Entered a new plunger in first and inserted a new switched carefully.
• Opened and close the lid few times to check the switch is going on an off properly. You will hear clicking sounds.
• Plugged the switch wire to the new switch.
• Reinstalled the console and screwed back the five screws.
• Plugged back the electric plug in wall outlet.
• Tested the washer by washing a full load of clothes.

The whole process took me about 30 minutes.
