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.

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...

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...

Lid Switch Assembly

PartSelect Number PS11739302
Manufacturer Part Number WP22001682
This black lid switch assembly comes complete with a bracket, two switches, and a fuse. An open fuse might indicate that the lid switch is bad. The point of the lid switch is for the tub to stop spinning when the washer lid is opened. It is a safety precaution just in case someone decides to stick their hand inside the washer while the tub is spinning.

The washer wouldn't start unless you slammed the lid shut.
I suspected the lid switch right away. Where I went wrong was in thinking that I had to get to it from below. After going to all the trouble of removing the front panel and detaching the top panel, I discovered that it was located inside the control section at the top of the appliance. It only took a few minutes to remove four screws and gain access to the old switch assembly and swap it out with the new one. One thing to note; the new switch assembly has to be set in exactly the right place along a slotted channel in order for both contacts to be activated properly. It's not difficult to find the right spot, but you have to do it consciously. Read more...

Water Level Switch

PartSelect Number PS11754877
Manufacturer Part Number WPW10448876
This part is located behind the control panel. It helps determine the level of water in the washer. As the water fills the hose, while tub is filling, it will push the air against a diaphragm inside the switch. More water that enters the tub, more pressure is applied against the switch.

Door locked because of faulty water level switch
First some background. The door locked up the first time when appliance was less than one year old. The "Maytag Repairman" finally succeeded in getting the door open after propping up the front of the machine and fumbling around underneath for a period of time and then assured me the problem was solved. The problem recurred less than a year later, and I called another repairman who seemed to have an easier time of it, and charged $293.42 to replace the water level switch. About six months later the same problem recurred and I took the cover off the top of the machine and found there a booklet "For Service Technician's Use Only". VERY HELPFUL. Told how extremely easy it was to unlock door - took about five seconds. Replacing the switch itself involved pulling one tubing off and disconnecting one elec connection from old switch and replacing on new switch. Total cost $50 plus a few dollars for shipping.

Washing machine shut off at begining of cycle
The washing machine was full of clothes, water, and detergent when it decided to stop working. I pulled the washer away from the wall (I recommend using two people for this), and removed the back access panel (two screws at the top and bottom). With the washer plugged into the wall outlet I used a multimeter to test electrical distribution through the system. Power goes directly to the Lid Switch from the outlet and is disrtibuted to the washer from this point. When I physically engaged the Lid Switch power was not distributed to the system. This told me that the switch was bad. I unplugged the washer from the wall outlet, then removed the Lid Switch.

To remove the Lid Switch, disconnect the wire connection by pulling straight up, pull back then up on the Lid Switch and it should slide out.

Keep in mind when this happened it was 8 or 9 pm, no supply depots open. I don't recommend an amateur performing this, but in order for me to get the clothes washed I made a jumper wire, composed of two wires twisted together at one end, (wires need to be of equal or greater gauge). I inserted the twisted end of the jumper wire into the black wire port of the Lid Switch wiring connector, then inserted one of the wires into the red wire port and one into the yellow wire port of the connector. Making sure the jumper wire did not make contact between the red and yellow, I plugged in the washer. The washer completed the cycle.

Installing the Lid Switch, reverse removal.

Lid Check Switch
★★★★★
★★★★★
(6)
PartSelect Number PS11738787
Manufacturer Part Number WP207166
This lid switch check is used in washers to detect if the washer lid is open or closed. This prevents a cycle from spinning when the lid is still open and is also used to start your washer once a certain water level is reached. If your washer will not start, agitate, drain, or fill with water, replacing the switch can be a solution to the problem. As a safety precaution, remember to unplug your washer from the power source before beginning this installation project. Refer to the manual provided by the manufacturer for further installation instructions and accurate guidance.

Washer was dead and would not turn on
Well the washer died and would not turn on in the middle of a wash cycle. Absolutely dead. I disconnected it from power and opened up the front panel on which all the control switches and knobs are mounted. This is removed by unscrewing 4 screws at the top of the washer.

Checked the fuse, and found blown. Replaced the fuse, closed the panel and plugged it in. Still not working. Checked the Check switches and found the Check Switch really limp. Checked with Digital Multimeter and found no continuity at either position. Unscrewed the check switch. Removal and re inspection with DMM of the check switch confirmed it was bad. Opened up the check switch and found contacts were blown.

Installed a new check switch making sure all the connecting wires go in the right places. The wiring diagram in the washer was very helpful in doing so since u dont want these wires reversed. Adjusted the plunger which operates the check switches when the lid is opened to make sure it is not over or under operating the switches. This is done by loosening the bolt holding down the check switch assembly and slidint the whole assembly forwards or backwards till the plunger has just enough push on the switches. This is done to avoid the plunger from exerting excessive pressure on the check switch and the safety switch in lid open or lid closed position. (both switches are operated by the same plunger according to the lid position)

Closed panel cover and plugged the washer in. There u go, it was alive again!

Water level selector inoperable, washer stuck in "Med" load.
