Lid switch screw mounts broke

I had to unscrew 2 screws that held the control panel, then remove the 2 end caps, remove 2 screws that held the control panel to the washing machine. I then lifted the control panel and leaned the lower case forward. All this to get access to the ground screw for the lid mount. It sounds like a lot, but actually it was quite simple. I replaced the old switch with a new one and put everything back together just like new. No extra screws or parts that I could not remember where they came from. Thanks Parts Select. Reading the comments from others helped me to realize that I could do the work without worry. The only problem I had was ordering the correct part. That did not happen until I got the correct part number from the old part.

Broken lid switch

My wife shut the lid to the washer with something stuck in the lid switch and it broke the pieces that hold the switch to the machine. I backed out the screws and put the new switch in. Couldn't really get to the screw that held the ground in place so I clipped that wire and used a wire nut to splice it to the new switch. Running the wires up to the connection wasn't that hard. Remembering to plug the connection in would have made this a lot quicker. Nice upgrade to the part too. That piece of metal under the switch is sure to keep it from breaking again anytime soon. Thanks.

CustomerHoward from Norridgewock ME

Lid switch had broken and was kept open so that washer would run thru all cycles even with lid open. This created a safety problem.

Remove both plastic end caps on control assbly. remove 2 screws holding control assbly. Lift washer casing up and away form washer frame. Remove lid switch harness from washer by lifting the plastic clip up.Remove lid switch wiring harness after removing 2 screws holding switch to washer. Place new switch into hole by squeezing together. Connect wiring from control assbly into new switch receptacle. Attach wiring to clips on side of frame and install switch waser casing with the 2 screws. place washer casing back onto frame and line up with rear panel. make sure sides line up with back. Install 2 screws to secure top control assbly. Replace end caps.

Replace switch lid

After taking he top control panel cover off 2 screws on either side, this allowed me to see the wire harnesses i located the switch lid harness removed it and noticed that the ground is attached towards the front under the top cover of the machine, almost impossible to unscrew the ground without more work, so i put the harness back cut off the the broken switch lid and spliced the new one with the old wiring very easy be sure to match the wires properly as they the same in appearance.

Lid switch

I first removed the control panel to see if I could connect the wires as designed. I soon realized it was much easier just to splice the wires to connect the new part. I did that using a wire cutter, wire connectors and electrical tape and then attached the lid switch to the machine with a phillips head screw driver (2 screws). Toughest part was the small space within which to work. Otherwise, very simple and machine is back to normal operation.

Washing machine did not advance to the spin cycle

It was very helpful to read the reviews of previous customers to diagnose the problem. We were lucky that there was a video for our machine repair. The most helpful portion of the video was showing how to remove the washer casing and where the clips were located. The replacement of the lid switch assembly was simple and took about 10 minutes. It took longer to drain the tub and drag it out of the utility room. While the machine was dismantled I cleaned the tub. The same problem happened to my friend and I shared my knowledge and she now is a happy Partselect customer. This is my fourth experience with Partselect and each one has been a success!

CustomerGregory from Fiddletown CA

Machine mysteriously stopped at spin cycle

After learning that the lid switch was the culprit and a common problem for this model, I tracked down where to procure another lid switch. You can easily find a repair video on YouTube for this issue as it takes you a step-by-step process of how to dismantle the machine in order to replace the switch. After viewing, I found that the actual task of repair/replacement was much easier than I had thought. 30 minutes later, I was up and running. I think the most amazing aspect of this story was that the "PartSelect" people shipped the part to my address in one day!

Washer wouldn't spin

First I replaced the pump which was clogged and would not drain the machine. That repair was easy and took about 30 minutes. The machine still would not drain or spin and I discovered the lid switch was broken. I ordered one of those too, and the replacement was easy. The hardest part was figuring out how the spring clips went back on. I found a video for that too. I found videos for everything. Partselect gave excellent service. I am in Texas and received delivery (non-express) in one day each time from their Oklahoma facility.

Washer would not spin but every other cycle functioned

The repair was extremely simple. After disconnecting the power I unscrewed and lifted the mechanical assembly off the top and pulled the outer casing back. I was able to get in through the lid opening to unscrew the ground screw followed by the screws holding the lid switch in place. After removing the entire piece everything went right back in place as it came out. The only issue I had was with one of the clips holding the wires in place. It came off and I had to push it back in rather hard to keep the wiring in place. Otherwise, this was the easiest repair I've ever done.
