Product Description

The lid switch is a part of the washing machine that is found mounted to the underside of the cabinet top panel. This genuine OEM part is also known as a washer lid switch, a lid switch assembly, or a lid switch assembly with leads. The purpose of this switch is to inform the washer when the lid is closed, so that it can start the wash cycle. If the switch is not functioning properly, it can result in the washer not starting, it not advancing through the cycles, the tub not draining, or it pumping but not spinning. The plastic can become brittle with time, so aggressive movements like slamming the washer lid, or the vibrating of an unbalanced load, can cause the lid switch to break. If you are experiencing these problems, you can use a multimeter to check the lid switch for continuity.

The lid switch on our washer was broken.
I followed the instructions on the online video by loosening the control panel and disconnecting the electrical connector. Then I removed the cabinet the lid switch and wiring harness. After that I installed the new switch and wiring harness, put the cabinet back on, reconnected the wiring harness to the control panel wires, put the cabin et back on and repositioned the control panel. The only extra instructions I could have used was for removing and reinstalling the cabinet. Other than that everything went smoothly!

Washer quit working in the middle of a cycle. No draining, no spinning absolutely nothing.
My husband did the work, I was not there. But I was glad for the reviews on this website. By NOT assuming it was the timer, we made the right part purchase. And he knew right away it was the switch when he pulled it out, because it was split apart. Sorry I can't give you instructions, but I hope this will be helpful to others.
