No power on washing machine

I removed the rear panel using a phillip screwdriver and a small wrench. I located the lid switch and popped it loose (no tools needed) and put the new one in. Power came back on washing machine.

CustomerBarry from Fallston, MD

Washer would not run without opening and closing lid several times.

Replaced lid switch assembly. Unplug washer. The console on this washer can be removed without sliding the washer from the wall. Just lean over the drum. Three phillips screws along the top, two machine screws removable using a small socket. Move the console forward to view the lid switch in the middle. Disconnect switch plug. Pop lid switch and plunger out. (Both part of lid switch assembly.) Replace. Connect plug to switch. (Could plug washer in and test at this point. Unplug.) Reassemble.

CustomerKyle from Skiatook, OK

Lid switch had went out.

I removed the rear panel of the washer, and removed the lid switch assembly. Then, replaced the old one with the new lid switch and plunger. Put the rear panel back on the washer, and started washing clothes again!!!!!! I think a monkey could have done it....
