Washer Lid Switch

(59)
PartSelect Number PS11745957
Manufacturer Part Number WP8318084
This part is found in your washer. The pin on the lid pushes on the lever of the lid switch to tell the machine that the lid is closed. This part includes the green grounding wire. If your machine is having trouble starting, is not agitating, spinning, or is not draining properly, this could be because the lid switch has broken. You will need a 5/16-inch nut driver for this repair. The package will contain one lid switch. You will need to access the back of the washer, and remove the two Phillips screws that hold the top back panel in place. Slide the panel forward to release. Use your nut driver to loosen the screw that holds the ground wire in place. Lift the lid of the washer to release the old lid switch.

Clint from Kansas City, KS
Washer wouldn't run
I removed the two screws on the back of the control panel. The control panel then flips back. The switch is on the left side. To remove the switch, I first detached the wire to the control panel and unscrewed the grounding wire. The new switch drops right in. I had a little trouble getting it in until I realized the washer lid had to be open. A little awkward but once it's in you can shut the lid and then I reattached the wire from the control panel and screwed in the grounding wire. Pretty easy. $20 for the part (with shipping) and 15 minutes. Way cheaper than a repairman. Read more...

PartSelect Number PS11722098
Manufacturer Part Number 3949247V
This switch (Lid Switch Assembly With Leads, Washer Lid Switch, Lid Switch Assembly, Washer Lid Switch) tells the washing machine that the lid is closed, which allows the wash cycle to begin. The lid switch mounts to the underside of the cabinet top panel. The plastic on the actuator can become brittle with age and break when the lid is closed roughly. It can also break from the movement of an unbalanced load causing parts of the washer to strike it. This part must be replaced if it is broken and no longer being activated by closing the lid (indicated by the washer not agitating properly, or the machine not detecting the lid is closed). This switch is black plastic with wire leads. It is sold individually.
Fixes these symptoms
  • Lid or door will not open
  • Lid or door won’t close
  • Not draining

Peter from Westbury, NY
washer would not start
To see if the lid switch was the problem I first jumped it out and tried to start the washer. That was the problem. I removed the main controll so I could get to the lid switch. I made the mistake of removing the screws all the way out and the metal clip fell into the body of the washer, no problem since I was changing the drive beld anyway. I realized that you do not remove the screws all the way out, you just have to loosen them and then slide out the lid switch & then replace it. Read more...

Installation Instructions
Fred from Midlothian, VA
Washing Machine kept cutting off mid-cycle
I had to remove the washing machine from the laundry room (our laundry room is pretty small).

I read the do-it-yourself explanation posted by Paul From Glendale CA and followed his instructions.

1. Unplugged the Washer and disconnected the hoses, so I could slide the washer into the kitchen.

2- Unfastened the two screws in the front lower corners of the controls panel and tilted is back. Unfastened the old lid-switch wiring from the control panel.

3. Remove the clips at the two corners under the control panel. I rotated the cover forward to clear it from the back and lifted it off and set it off to the side.

4. While I had the Washer disassembled I vacuumed out all the accumulation of dust, etc.

5. Removed the lid switch and unfastened the ground wire.

6. Installed the new switch and reassembled the Washer.

7. I did not read Paul's reassembly instructions closely enough. The front flange of the cover goes UNDER the steel frame on the washer. I spent 30 minutes trying to get the cover on, then finally figured that out on my own. Once I got the flange under the frame, it took about five minutes to get the cover on, the clips in and the control panel back into positions and reassembled.

The entire process is not particularly difficult. Had I read the "UNDER the frame" part earlier, the entire repair would have taken no more than 45 minutes.

Having another person to help reinstall the cover would be helpful. The cover is not heavy but it is a little awkward to handle and having another person to help line up the back cover, etc. will make the reassembly even easier.

Water level selector inoperable, washer stuck in "Med" load.
Using the guidance listed on your website for part #PS3408149, Water Level Pressure Switch, I removed two screws on each side of the rear Control Panel, removed the dial from the front, lifted the panel on the right side from rear, removed the hose and the electrical plug, twisted off the broken part and installed the new one in absolute reverse! Reassembled panel, plugged in unit to electric and performed function check to great satisfaction! (by doing one med load and one super load over next 2 hours) Read more...

Wayne from University City, MO
Water control would only fill to Medium load then stopped altogether
I removed the screws holding the control board in place. Removed the knob on the front of the panel and then disconected the wires to the control. Then I took the old control off the board and inserted the new control. I attached the wire connectors to the new control and put the control panel back in place and fastened it with the screws. Last task was to replace the knob. The new control worked wonderfully with the first load of laundry. Piece of cake. Done in 5 minutes or less. Read more...

Jonathan from Hayden, ID
Tank was overfilling, lots of water on the floor, not good.
Disassembled the control panel and replaced the water level sensor, but not the hose - bad idea. It was probably just the hose. The thing tested fine for 3 fillings. I told my friend to watch it closely for the first couple of loads, because I thought the level was not consistent? - but she didn't. More water on the floor. Replaced the hose and it's working fine. Thank you. Read more...

GREIG from CARTERSVILLE, GA
washer overflowing
Repair was easy enough by just unlocking the tab and twisting the switch out from under the control panel. For me though, this did not fix my overflowing issue. After more research I found the inlet valve needed to be cleaned out.
I respect that electrical parts are non-returnable as I am in the auto parts business.
