Question:

When i pull the knob to start the washer, the water fills up to the right level, but then nothing happens. I replaced the fuse assembly, but it did not help. Not sure what other part i would need to get the washer to start the cycles. I would appreciate any help.

Answer:

Hi RC, Thank you for your inquiry. The most common part that fixes this issue is the lid switch. Some other parts you will have to check as well are the lid check switch, the washing machine hinge ball, the belt and the lid switch actuator. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

The button on top of lid does not depress anymore so spin cycle wont engage. Used screw driver in top to solve problem before but that wont work any longer. Will the lid check button you have available solve my problem?

Washer just stopped within a wash cycle.

I called a local repair service and they wanted 95 bucks for the first 30 minuets. Any thing over that was an additional 45 bucks per half hour, plus parts. Since the washer was 19 years old I thought it would cost around 300 big ones to get it repaird. We could buy a new similar model for about 550 bucks so I said, what the heck. I'll invest the 18 bucks to see if this 80 year old can fix it. The repair instruction I read on your on line were perfect. FIXED IN ABOUT 20 MINUETS.Installed the lid switch, saved a bundle and maybe another 19 years on the washer. Thanks a bunch. Walt Apple Valley Mn

Washer would not start

Very easy, and simple. Replaced part that was sent. It was a simple process, open control panel, unplug machine. Unscrewed the old part, attached the new part and starting working right away. I am very impressed with this company and the speed they shipped the parts. Will continue to use if needed and tell everyone about this site.

Fills but won't turn on to wash

Removed the cover on top raised control panel at back of machine. Checked fuse, then lid switch which were okay. Checked Check-lid switch which was bad. Ordered and replaced. I always take pics with cell phone before removing anything to see position, wire colors, etc. Only difficult because of location on check-lid switch. Hard to reach even with right angle screwdriver. Had to bend some of the metal housing above the switch to get screwdriver in there.

Washer would not start

I guessed that the lid switch was bad based on internet information that suggested that cause of the problem. I confirmed this by disconnecting 2 wires to switch and taping them together to bypass the switch. Wiring diagram was available. Washer worked that way so I ordered a new switch which arrived within 22 hours, regular shipping.
