This lid switch with wire harnesses is used in washing machines. The pin on the lid switch pushes onto the lever of the switch to communicate to the machine that the washer lid is closed. If your washing machine is not running when the lid is closed, not spinning, draining, or agitating, replacing the lid switch could solve the problem. The tools needed for this repair are: putty knife, 1/4 inch nut driver, wire strippers and crimpers. Refer to the manual for further installation instructions.

Question:

Won't agitate or spin, but water is exhausted. I'm not sure a new switch would solve the problem, since the machine makes some sound when it is supposed to agitate or spin. Should i buy the assembly and give it a try, or do you think it might be something else? Thanks.

Answer:

Hi Bob, Thank you for the great question. Normally if it was a switch you would not have sounds like it was trying to agitate. Checking the list of symptoms I suggest checking the belt, part number PS1482278. If you enter this part number into the search bar on our home page you will come up with a video on how to install the new belt, watching the video will show you how to get to the belt so you can check to see if it is broken or wore out and needs to be replaced. Hope this helps!

Gerald for model number GTWN4250D1WS
Answer:

Hello Gerald, thank you for contacting us. It is possible that it could be the lid switch. The pin on the lid switch pushes onto the lever of the switch to communicate to the machine that the washer lid is closed. If your washing machine is not running when the lid is closed, not spinning, draining, or agitating, replacing the lid switch could solve the problem. Hope this helps!

Question:

I replaced the lid magnet switch. It seems like the start button doesn't engage when pressed on. Usually when i press the on button the water starts to fill. The machine does not engage, no matter what i do!! this machine was bought on 10/12/2014. i would think that a machine should last longer that 2 yrs. 10 mos!

Gerald for model number GTWN4250D1WS
Answer:

Hi Gerald, Thank you for your inquiry. If your washer is not starting, and you have already replaced the magnet assembly, there are some other parts you may have to look at. You will need to check the electronic control board, the lid switch with wire harness and the drive belt. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Mike for model number VBSR3100G5WW
Answer:

Hi Mike, Thank you for the question, I would first suggest testing the motor. The motor has an switch and if defective it will not allow it to agitate. Hope this helps!

Question:

Power on, hit start, tub filled and then nothing. Still got power, tub full, lights on front panel but it won't spin.

Marc for model number GTWP2250DOWW
Answer:

Hi Marc, Thank you for your inquiry. Where your washer will not start, the most common part that will fix the issue is the lid switch. Some other parts you may also have to check are the electronic control board, the magnet assembly, and the drive belt. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

Machine not agitating or spinning. Took cover off and saw belt was shredding, so I replaced. Still doesn't' agitate or spin. I was going to buy lid switch, but you had answered another question saying if lid switch is bad no sounds of trying to spin would be heard. My machine does make sounds trying to engage. Any other time ideas of problem?

James for model number WLRE4500G0WW
Answer:

Hi James, Thank you for the question, Yes with the lid switch you would have no sound since it acts as a safety mechanism. We recommend checking the Agitator Coupling as this can also prevent the appliance from agitating if it becomes damaged or worn. Hope this helps !

Washing machine would not go through all cycles or agitate

After removing frt panel which prys off I checked for anything obvious like a loose belt. Then I jiggled the magnet switch located on the inside of the loading cover. I saw the machine start agitating the it stopped again when I stopped touching it. I ordered the new part and spliced it in with the wire crip tool. Now the machine is A ok.

Washer didn't wash/spin

Replaced lid switch with wire harness. Video available on this web page. The technician said bad motor. We counted the flashes, light on top of motor, was 7 times. Diagnoses are very important, save you money! Do it more times, be sure. Biggest problem is socket size for the screws, size 6,5mm or 1/4 inch. Do not call technician or throw away your washer!...

Washer stopped aggitating and spinning

Reviewed your website for problem symptoms for top loading washers not agitating and possible solutions. Purchased the lid switch wiring harness. All I needed was a painters 1" putty knife, wire cutters, Philips head screwdriver, (2) electrical connectors (crimping type), crimping tool, and electrical tape. Very easy installation and problem was solved. Recommendation, the wiring harness should come with electrical connectors (crimping type). The installation video on your website was a big plus in making this small project a success

Machine will do everything and stop at the last spin, will not spin at the end.

I researched what could be the problem in the internet and follow the instructions from a GE technician, I chose the problem from a list and followed the video the technician played on how to do it yourself. This time was the lid switch which is found visible under the lid opening usually right middle flush with the opening. When I got the new lid, only the switch gets bad so I cut the cable enough to replace the old one, pulled out and cut and connected the new one. If there is not enough cable use the spatula to push the clips on the front panel on the top both side about 5 inches from the corner and pull panel out front and now you can see the wires better and make the connection.

Washer lid sensor stopped working, thus, would not spin, thinking lid was open

This was easy and took maybe a half-hour. The harder part was pulling the front panel off (up) to access the insides. Simply snipped the wire to the old sensor and spliced the new wire and inserted the new sensor. Worked perfectly and saved me $400? on a new washer! (Cover panel is slightly bent, did not re-snap in, so it's loose; I don't care about the looks, so I will screw metal screws using a hinge to close it.)
