This lid lock, also known as a door lock, is a genuine OEM replacement part for your washing machine. The lid lock keeps your washer lid closed during the washing cycle.

Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
the machine was spinning after a load was done,
any electrical device unplug the power cord. I followed the instructions the best I could understand them. but once the part was removed I took pics from my cell phone of how the wiring ran, and also what other connections I had to undo. all connections were made, connected the hot n cold hoses, plugged into the washer no beeps or sounds as before opened the hot n cold water valves, and the tub was being filled with water. could not turn on the washer, no lights or beeps... so I gave up I spent too much time on this machine and money too, hope to get an RMA for the Lid Switch assembly

The machine stopped working completely! My wife went on YouTube,and learned that it could be the motherboard or the door latch. We changed both, and the washer would only fill but did not drain, and spin! We called a serviceman, and he had to program the service board,but said that the new door mech
We changed the circuit board once, and the door latch mechanism twice because we ordered a faulty part. Then we had to hire a service man to program the circuit board, and to inform us that the door latch mechanism was faulty.

Water would not empty from washer and lid switch kept clicking
The most important item I learned is the original lid switch is no longer available. It has been replaced with the entire Lid Switch Assembly. I read the new switch is magnetic versus the old which was mechanical. The kit comes with everything you will need (switch, wiring harness, lid lock bezel and instructions). I found the written instructions to not be the easiest to follow. However, I found someone had done a YouTube video on the replacement which made the repair easy (under 15 minutes). Although I did the repair by myself, a second person would be handy to hold the washer cover and controls while changing the wiring harness. When testing the new switch, remember to test during the Spin cycle.

The lid switch which signals that the washer door is closed malfunctioned. Even with the lid closed the washer would not spin because the washer was detecting the lid as open because of the faulty switch
The replacement part looked absolutely nothing like the defective part. The old part was easily accessible and was easily unplugged from the wiring harness. I assume when the new part came, I would just plug it into the wiring harness, snap some of the trim pieces in place and be done. 5 minutes. But no. The replacement part was completely different and came with its own wiring harness and length
of wire which had to be installed. The installation of the wiring harness was extremely complicated which involved popping off the control panel of the washer, prying up the top and disconnecting some other pieces to complete the install. There should have been a clear warning on the replacement part, that it was completely different and likely too difficult for a non-professional repair man.

The washing machine appeared stuck in the spin cycle
I watched a video on a few times that PartSelect sent me about how to make the switch from the broken lock set to the new one. And it really went just as the video showed. So far things are working.

Installation instructions came with the parts, which were very helpful.
There are two lid clips on the front side of the top and a narrow blade putty knife works great to release the clips. There are 4, 1/4 in hex head screws in the back area of the top, two on each side. Two are in the console and two are under the console.
Pay attention to the orange pressure switch hose, when lifting the Console, can pull this hose off, this hose can be pulled off easily. The lid/lock switch is easy to remove, once the Bezel is removed, then slide the switch to the left it will release. Remove and unplug the harness. The new lid/lock switch clips back in the same manner it was removed. Important! When the new switch arrives it may not look like the old one.

When a GE washer lid keeps locking, unlocking, or clicking, the problem could be anything from a faulty lid lock or some component. Clicking locks often signify a snapped plastic component or insecure lid attachment. Replacing the lid lock, latch, or harness may solve the problem. The Lid Lock Striker PartSelect Number PS11729471. The LID SWITCH ASSEMBLY PartSelect Number PS16554755 or LID LOCK HARNESS PartSelect Number PS11759139. We hope this helps.
