How to access the lid switch on my Whirlpool washer?

Found this video that pretty much answered my question. However, I also had to take a flat blade screwdriver and straighten the bent tabs that the cabinet edge locks in place over. They got bent somehow in all my wrestling with the cabinet before I watched the video. Here's the video link: youtube.com/watch?v=MFsvLiuTniU

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.

How to access lid switch on top loading Kenmore washer?

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The top of the washer is not designed to come off for servicing. The washer cabinet is designed to come off the base for servicing. To remove the cabinet;

disconnect the power cord from the power source

and then remove the screw located at the bottom of each control panel end cap. Slide the control panel towards the front of the washer and lift it up and hinge it over the rear panel. Disconnect the lid switch harness connector from the top of the washer. Place the tip of a flat blade screw driver in the first valley closest to you and then pry the handle towards the back of the washer to pop and release the two gold colored cabinet clips. Tilt the washer cabinet towards the front and walk it out so you can access the lid switch under the top. I added an image with the procedure below.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Thank you for submitting your question. The top does not need to be removed from the washer cabinet in order to replace the lid switch. I have provided information below to help you.

Disconnect the 3 wire lid switch harness connector from the main top.

Unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power.

Remove the two plastic end caps on each side of the console.

NOTE

: Some models do not have removable end caps.

Remove the screws on each side of the console that secure it to the top panel.

NOTE

: Some models do not have screws. If not, release the clips on each side using a putty knife.

Pull the console forward and hinge it up and back over the top of the back panel of the washer.

Release the clip on each side of the cabinet that secures it to the back panel (see image).

Pull the cabinet forward to access the lid switch wire harness. Unplug the wire harness.

Pull the cabinet off of the washer. You now have access to remove and replace the lid switch.

Replace the switch and reverse the procedure for reassembly. I Hope this information is helpful. If you need further assistance please reply back to this thread below with detailed information that is needed. Thank you for choosing Manage My Life.com .

How do I access the lid switch ITW4300SQ2 Inglis Residential washer

Thank you for your question.

 

I am sorry you are having a problem with

Inglis washer model

ITW4300SQ2

.

I will be happy to assist you with replacing the lid switch. First, unplug the washer from the wall outlet. Then remove the two screws in the back of the console. These screws are in the end cap and secure the console. The first image below shows the location of the screws. Once the screws are removed, pull the console forward and flip it back. The lid switch is located on the left side. The second image shows how to remove it. You can order the

lid switch part number 8318084 for the

Inglis washer model

ITW4300SQ2

from this link.

I also recommend checking the lid hinge screws. If they are loose, the hinge will not activate the lid switch.

 

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician.

 

Here is a link for the website:

 

Sears Home Services.

 

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

 

If you cannot see the images, I suspect you are viewing this question on our partsdirect site. If this is the case, I recommend pasting the following address in your browser. It will take you to the site to see the images.

I have included a set of illustrated instructions (See images below). These should step you through the process of accessing your lid switch. Make sure the screws that attach the hinges to the lid are tight, if not the lid switch may not get made when the lid is closed.

I have included a link that you may use for parts purchases; please click the following

Sears Parts Direct



If you require further assistance please resubmit your question with more details. I will be looking forward to helping you again in the near future.

To replace the lid switch on this washer you will first have to remove the cabinet. The instructions for removing the cabinet are in the image below.

Remember to unplug the power cord first so no voltage is present.

The image below has the instructions for removing the outer cabinet.

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.

How do I access the lid switch on my washer in order to replace it?

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.
