Is this the same as the door strike/ interlock assembly?
For model number 11092588210
PartSelect logo
Hi Selena, great question! They are two separate parts that function together, this is the lid switch assembly. The door strike for this model, which activates the switch, is known as a lid switch actuator assembly. Part number 350733 is compatible with the model number you provided. I hope this helps!

The washing machine would not spin the water out.
After seeing information on the lid switch being one of the main causes, I manually wiggled the switch up and down to find a spot it would start to spin. 1. Remove two screws on the control panel 2. Flip Control panel back 3. Remove two clips under control panel 4. Unplug lid switch 5. Tilt Washing machine shell forward and unlatch the front bottom edge from the frame 6. Remove ground wire screw with 7 MM socket and remove to screws holding switch on shell with Phillips screwdriver 7. Remove wire harness from clips 8. Attach new wire harness to clips 9. Insert screws to hold switch to shell with phillips screwdriver and attach ground wire with 7 MM socket 10. Latch front bottom edge of shell onto frame and tilt back, making sure back bottom corners go onto pins on bottom 11. Reinstall two clips 12. Flip control panel back up and install two screws Took about 15 - 20 minutes to complete, may have taken longer to remove the switch from package than to change.

Lid Switch Case was Broken and would not hold screws. Not draining or spinning.
I watched a youtube video made by the site on how to replace the lid switch assembly. It showed you exactly how to do this repair. Without watching the video, it would probably have stumped me. After watching the video a couple of times, it was really pretty easy to do. The timer on our washer also needed replacing. I followed the instructions by Joe from Covington, GA. That repair was really easy. Thanks, Joe, for the easy to follow, complete instructions.

Lid Switch Damaged
I first removed the damaged switch remains. Installed the new lid switch in it's place. Cut and stripped the two wires about 6 inches from the switch, on both old and new. And slipped on the shrink tubing and soldered the control wires to the new switch wires,heated the shrink tubing, slipped the hard plasic covering over the connections and secured the wiring back in place. It seemed to me that this method was easier and quicker than hooking up the plug. Less work involved to achieve the same result. . . Wife says the washer now works just perfectly. ------Also I might add that the delivery via ups was extremly quick. Thank you.

The lid switch failed.
Got on-line to look for Whirlpool parts using model number and serial number of washing machine. Located the part and ordered it. Received in 2 days. After reading the comments of how others replaced the same part I was able to do the repair.

Weak spin cycle, not draining water at all
Had to unattach the top control console from the cabinet by unscrewing two screws on either side on the back, tabs holding them down -- had to hold them as you unscrew and pull them out. Carefully loosen three tabs on either side holding the panel down by pushing it forward a bit; then snap out two clips holding the back panel to the cabinet using a flathead screwdriver to pry it up being sure to keep it from flying off. Unplug the cable and pull it out from underneath after pushing the side tab down that hold it in place. Carefully ull out the outer cabinet shell to get to the switch assembly clipped underneath the top. There were two clips keeping the cabling in place. Loosen the grounding screw holding the grounding wire from the switch housing. Loosen the two screws holding the switch housing in place.

I was so fortunate to find a video that educated me before I attempted the fix. I had to refer to it in putting things back together because I found I had ordered the wrong switch and had to wait for the correct part.

When I called for return information and to order the right part number, the Customer Rep was VERY nice and patient and I received the second order very promptly. Four days after I called, I now have the machine in great working condition -- spinning and draining like new!

Lid Switch failed
I didn't think this would be particularly difficult but it was easier than I expected.

UNPLUG THE MACHINE

Remove the two screws (one on the right , one on the left) That allows the control panel to swing up.

Lift the panel up.
There is a plastic wiring connector that is secured in the top of the washer housing. Press the sides of the top of the connector and remove the top connector. (The bottom part of the connector will still be secured to the housing)

There will be two clamps one on the right side under the control panel, and one on the right.
Use a screwdriver to pop out these clamps. This is where I used the washcloth to place between the screwdriver and the washing machine body to avoid scratching the surface.

Once you pop out these clamps, the housing is free from the tub frame.
Twist the housing just a little and tilt it forward. IT will just slide off the frame.
You can now take the housing wherever you want to more easily get to the switch. It is mounted in the housing.
Take a good look at the way the switch is mounted and the wiring tube is secured because you will need to at least have an idea how to put it back into place.

There will be two clips that hold the wiring tube in place. One on the side and one on the top. Use a screwdriver (and the washcloth if necessary) to loosen and remove the clips.

There are two screws that hold the switch to the housing. Remove these and keep the screws. You will need them to attach the new switch.

Now the only thing keeping you from removing the switch is the connector which you saw earlier before removing the housing. Squeeze the sides of the clip and free it from the housing.

Mount the new switch into the housing and route the wiring. You may have to use a small pair of pliers to squeeze the clips back together to hold the wiring tube to the housing.
Attach the green ground wire to the housing frame just like the one you removed to get the wring tube off the housing.

Push the connector end through the hole designed for it until it snaps into place.

Replacing the Housing back on the frame:
Let the housing all the way down, and slide the front lip of the housing UNDER the front brace of the tub frame.
Carefully let the housing lower onto the side rails (the housing will go on TOP of the side rails).
You may have to gently twist the housing to let it fall into the proper place.
Take the clips and secure the housing back to the tub frame.
These just POP back into place with applied pressure.
Re-connect the lid switch to the control panel wiring connector.
Swing the control panel back down into place and replace the screws on the left and right sides.

PLUG IN THE MACHINE

Viola!! You are ready to perform your favorite laundry task.(Yeah RIGHT!!) Or just yell "HONEY the washing machine is ready for you." Anyway, after the swelling in your eyes go down you will see that your washer is ready to use.

This took me about 40 minutes but some of that time was spent understanding just what to do. With these instructions, you may be able to do it in 30 minutes.

I hope this helps you. Kudos to the Whirlpool Engineers who made this machine easy to work on. This is the 3rd repair I have done on mine. (Rebuilt the agitator drive and replaced the timer) For 18 years of use.. that ain't bad. I think it is good for another 5 years at least. Total cost for this repair: Part=$37, Shipping=$7, Time spent=40 minutes. Not bad considering a serviceman is going to charge $90 labor for the first hour plus parts.
