CustomerCharles from Terre Haute IN

No spin or agitation

I removed four srews holding the control panel and laid it to the side, then removed a screw holding the ground on and disconnected the electrical connection. The lid needs to be open to remove the switch. Just remove the switch and reverse sequence. To replace the coupling , I laid over the washer and removed two screws holding the straps connecting the motor to the transmission. After seperating, I pulled off old couplings and reinstalled the new ones on both the motor and transmission. I had to tap couplings on. Then reversed the installation and set backup and tried it out. It worked great.

The machine would cycle properly all the time.

I read the experiences of others on this site and determined that the problem was probably the lid switch. Used others experience in taking the panel off and removed the old switch and inserted the new one. The post to be sure to have the lid open was good and probably saved me some time. Overall, the fix was simple and the problem appears to have been solved. The lid switch got here the day after I ordered it and that was great service. Better than paying for a service call or new washer.

CustomerJoel from Tompkinsville KY

Washer would do nothing

I never have and never will claim to be a mechanic. my wife said it had to be the lid switch. After opening and closing the lid I agreed. Took 2 screws out of back of top panel lifted control panel out of way and there was the lid switch just as part select custumers had said. $100 repairman fix, and I fixed it for a little over $20.
