How to access the lid switch on my Whirlpool washer?
by Manage My Life 
June 27th, 2009

Note: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing the washer

.

The lid switch (key#9) is activated by the left hand lid hinge which is accessible once the console (key#39) has been placed in the service position. Remove the two screws securing the console to the rear panel. Slide the console forwards about 1/4 inch and then lift it up and hinge it over the rear panel. You will see the lid switch in the left corner. You will likely need to bend the arm of the hinge so that it will energize the lid switch. I added a couple of new images below. If you need to remove the cabinet, pop the two (2) gold colored cabinet clips off (key#6) securing the cabinet to the rear panel. Tilt the cabinet forward and off.

If you have any trouble viewing the images, please call the Manage My Home Member Services Team at 1-800-803-6775, between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Central Time. They will be more than happy to help you.

In order to get to the lid switch the console will need to be lifted up. First

disconnect the electrical power

to the washer. Slide a putty knife between the top of the cabinet & the bottom of the end cap to release the spring clips. Do this on each side. Lift up & swing back the complete console assembly. You will see the lid switch on the left hand side.

First, disconnect the power cord from the power source

.

Remove the end cap trim (key#8&15) by pulling the top of the trim up enough clear the console and pivot the top of the trim towards you and off.

Repeat the same step to remove the other end cap trim.

Remove the screw at the bottom of the end caps which was hidden by the end cap trim.

I added three (3) images in order to reference the parts and key numbers.

To access the lid switch (key#11) the washer cabinet will need to be removed.

First, disconnect the power cord from the power source

.

The console (key#26) will need to be placed in the service position by removing two (2) screws, one (1) screw located at the bottom of the left hand end cap (key#7) and one (1) screw located at the bottom of the right hand end cap (key#10).

In order to access the two (2) screws hidden under the left hand end cap trim (key#8) and under the right hand end cap trim (key#11)the two (2) end cap trim pieces will need to be removed.

To remove the trim, place you finger behind the trim at the very top and bend it up enough to clear the console and then hinge it towards the front and off.

Remove the hidden screw under each end cap trim. Slide the console forwards about 1/4 inch and the raise it upwards and hinge it over the rear panel.

Disconnect the 3 wire lid switch harness plug located on the top. Pop the two (2) cabinet clips (key#6) off.

Place the tip of a flat tipped screw driver down into the first valley and then push the handle end to the rear of the washer to pop off the cabinet clips.

Open the lid and grab the opening and tilt the top of the washer cabinet forwards just a few degrees and then walk it backwards and off.

The lid switch mounted under the main top is now accessible to remove and replace.

Reverse the procedure to re-assemble the washer.

In order to access the lid switch, you will need to remove the cabinet first. Pull off both console end caps & remove the screws securing the console to the top of the washer, one on each side. Pull forward & upwards & flip the console up to the resting position. Unplug the 3 wire plastic connector that goes down through the top panel. Use a flat blade screwdriver to pry up the 2 large steel clamps securing the rear panel to the top panel. You should now be able to left the back of the cabinet & pull the complete cabinet off the frame of the washer. You will now have access to the lid switch for replacement. Be sure when you reassemble the cabinet the locking tabs on the base rails lock into the guide slots of the cabinet.
