Washer Lid Switch
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.

Lid Switch – Part Number: 3949247V
Your Price
$45.40
Lid Switch
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.

Lid Check Switch

Refer to the manual provided by the manufacturer for further installation instructions and accurate guidance.
