HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED A LID SWITCH, LID SWITCH ASSEMBLY, OR BOTH?
Answer Cari, The more common indicators of a faulty lid switch 8318084 on your style washer is, the machine will fill and wash, but won't drain and spin. In your case you also want to check and make sure the lid hinge on the left side, is not loose, or the plastic sleeve is not worn out or damaged. The left side hinge activates the lid switch lever, if it's loose or out of alignment it may not activate the switch properly.
Switch went out on my washer I would like to know where would the switch be located at?
The lid switch is located under the main top of the unit. To replace the lid switch you will remove the 2 screws securing the control panel, which will be located on the back. Once removed roll the control panel from the bottom front up. There will be 2 clips that you will use a flat blade screw driver to pop out and pull the cabinet off the unit. This will allow access to the lid switch which is locate at the rear of the main top.
Washer will not fill with water however the spin cycle works just fine.
Answer Hello Melissa. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the switch W10248240 needs to be replaced on the unit.
This lid switch is located on top of the washer unit, under the control panel, not inside the cabinet, like most models. When I attempted to remove the old lid switch, the clip snapped and broke off. When I attempted to insert the new lid switch, that clip snapped and broke off, as well. I cannot find video-based instructions on how to do this more delicately! I have ordered another part, but really don't want to break this next one. Any help is appreciated.
Answer Hello Sue,
There are no definitive directions for the replacement of the switch. Once you have figured out the parts' vulnerability, it becomes easier to be gentle with it during its' installation. The main thing to remember is to change the part out with the lid opened so the arm from the lid hinge isn't in the switch, causing it to bind during its' removal and re-installation.
