washer continued to spin when you raised the lid not shutting off
Your web site is amazing Ive enjoyed watching your videos,this is a really great way to see what it takes to repair your washer very informative. Steve was a good teacher for me I just followed along as he explained each step and my washer came apart just like he said. I removed the two front console screws and pulled slightly forward and lifted console up and tilted it back where it was out of the way. next I was able to lift cabinet up from the back and remove it from the frame and lay cabinet on the floor on top of a rug I had to protect the finish on cabinet . Now I had access to the lid switch and simply removed the two screws in the cabinet and the old switch. I connected the two wire connections to the new switch (no)normally open connection, used same actuator the instructions say to do this because the one that comes with the new switch won't fit so use the old one. on my washer there's a cover that fits under this switch and It took me a little longer to get the screws to line up so they fit through the switch and into the cover but It worked fine. Now all I had to do was reinstall the cabinet just like Steve did on the video my only problem with this was seeing where the tabs in the frame were located so that the slots in the cabinet would fit over top of frame tabs I used a flash light in one hand and lowered the cabinet down I held the light on the frame tabs and the slots in cabinet fit right in then lowered cabinet to the rear frame tabs where i just had to push slightly on the sides of cabinet and it fit right in.Next i pushed the back panel in place and on the top of washer just like in video reinstalled both spring clip clamps and the console and reinstalled the two screws. I plugged in the washer put drain hose back in drain pushed washer back in place turned it on working great now ! Thank You so much for your help Dan.

Washer will agitate, but won't spin
I ordered the switch, which is what most people told me the problem was. I didn't have a multimeter, so I couldn't test the current one.

I removed the two screws from above the lid switch, removed the control panel screws on either side, and used a flat screwdriver to pry the top off by popping the clips.

The switch was easy to reach, and I compared the old and new switch after removing the paddle assembly. The new switch has three prongs, whereas my old one had two, so I put the gray wire terminal onto the bottom prong. I set everything down, plugged it in, and tested it, but still no spin cycle.

After some further research, I realized the problem was with the spin solenoid under the washer, or the red wire that leaves the lid switch and goes to the spin solenoid, also called a wig-wag solenoid. (This is a belt driven model, not direct drive.) It's not too common that the solenoids fail, but it is rather common that the wires break inside the insulation on this model.

Moral of the story is always ohm through the switches and wires before ordering replacement parts. (Remember, never ohm through a live circuit.)

Washer stopped working mid cycle restarts after resetting lid
Repair went well, but my switch only had one contact on the non common end. The new switch had two contacts. One is for operation with lid open and one for lid closed. Make sure to connect to the lid closed contact and the common on the other end and leave the lid open contact unused.

Fuse in washer blows every time lid is opened. Washer works fine after fuse is replaced until lid is opened again. Which part(s) would you recommend?
For model number LAT8434AAE
PartSelect logo
Hi Tami, Thank you for your inquiry. It is not the fuse that is causing the issue. The fuse is connected to the lid switch which, in turn, tells the washer whether the lid is open or closed. The switch is designed to intentionally blow the fuse if it is not working properly so that the washer won't run with the lid open. One of the contacts in the switch may be stuck or malfunctioning.It is the lid switch. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

My washer will fill but doesn't agitate spin or drain. I have checked the switch assembly in the control panel with ohm meter and have continuity in fuse, lid check switch. The lid switch makes a clicking sound and seems to start and stop timer. The timer ticks though out cycle and then stops at end of cycle with no action. The motor never engages or spins or hums or anything. What do you think is wrong and where should i start troubleshooting?
For model number LAT9304AAE
PartSelect logo
Hi John, Thank you for your inquiry. Your appliance does have another lid switch and a lid check switch. I would suggest checking both of those parts as well. It seems like it is likely a lid switch issue although if all of those parts check out alright, it may be your timer that is the issue. Good luck with your repair.

I'm not sure what is the problem: The machine turns on, and will do what it is set to do, but will not move to the next job. It sat with the water in it until i moved it to drain, then sat until i moved the dial to spin, then spun until i forced it to fill...then spun again until i moved it a little further. the site says that it is the door switch, but i am not certain. can you help?
For model number A310

Hi Wendy, Thank you for your question. I would suggest testing your door switch but also testing the timer of your appliance. You should be able to test both parts with a multi-meter. Good luck with your repair.

Does the new door switch come with a new bracket? I need to replace that too but don’t see a part number....help please..thanks
For model number 110.67902790
PartSelect logo
Hello Reed, thank you for your question. The bracket is sold separately. You would want to order Dryer Door Switch Actuator Spring/Lever Part Number: PS11743767 which is the bracket/actuator for that switch. I hope this helps!

The lid switch button was stuck in the on position and will not retract when lid is up. What pushes the button back out?
For model number LAT9400AAW
PartSelect logo
Hi Ren, Thank you for your question. There is a mechanism inside the switch that allows the button to spring back up. If the button is not working you will need to replace the switch. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

The washer sometimes does not empty and go to the next cycle. I noticed that if i opened the lid and accidentally shut it hard, the washer would start up again. Would this be a lid switch issue or lid switch activator. So now hen it wont cycle, if i bang on the washer near the lid switch, it will usually work again.Thanks andrew
For model number LA5550XPW7
PartSelect logo
Hi Andrew, Thank you for your question. Based on what you described the issue would be the lid switch. To be sure you will need to test it with a multimeter to see if it is has continuity and make sure it is set in the correct spot so the lid switch actuator can activate it. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Hello Patrick, thank you for your question. We would recommend testing or replacing the lid switch first. If the lid switch isn't functioning the unit will not go into agitation, spin, or drain mode. I hope this helps!

The washer filled up but never shut off when the tub was full. Water ran everywhere and i had to manually shut off the water at the hoses. Not sure which part we need to replace maybe a switch of some sort so it knows it's full? Any help would be appreciated.
For model number LAT9704AAE
PartSelect logo
Hi Melissa, Thank you for your question. It sounds like you may either have to look at your water inlet valve being the issue or your water level pressure switch. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.
