Answer Hello Larry, It sounds like you have a bad lid switch. This part should take care of your problem. Thanks.

I have a GE washer that will drain the tub on alternating washes. The 1st load will be okay but on the following load I have to wring out the clothes as they are saturated with water. I checked the lines for obstructions and found none. When the water is being pumped out of the tub there is a strong flow of water, but unfortunately I don't check the 2nd load, assuming it will be okay. Also do you need a special tool to remove the belt as I am planning to replace the current 1 in the next few days. Thank-You
The issue may not be a clogged drain or drain pump. The issue could be the unit getting off balance on certain loads or something causing the tub to not spin at full speed. If the unit does not spin at full speed then the clothes will be very wet when they come out. You will want to check the motor to make sure that there are no error codes flashing on the inverter of the motor. The tech sheet will have information about the error codes if there are any. Also check the suspension rods to make sure that they are good and properly positioned. For the belt there are no special tools required to replace it.
my washer fills with water and then doesn't advance and I can hear a humming noise. would this be the lid switch
With the unit humming it sounds like the motor would be running therefore eliminating the lid switch. The most likely cause for the issue will be a bad motor coupler. The part number is 285753A.
Need to replace wires for lid switch. Roper RTW4340SQ0. What is the part number?
Answer Hello! The harness that connects to the lid switch is part number 3958082. If you are needing the green ground wire on the lid switch itself you'll need to order the lid switch 8318084. Thanks!
My lid does not lock. It makes the noise like it is going to lock but does not. The lock light blinks and so does the sensor light, but nothing happens.
With the door lock making the locking noise but not locking, you will want to make sure that the lid is not warped and if the lid checks ok then most likely the lock assembly is faulty and would need to be replaced.
What is the wire called the plugs into the lid switch mine is bad?
Whirlpool Washing Machine / Washer Lid Switch part number is 8318084.

Machine fills up with water will not go through cycle. Is lid switch bad?
Answer Hello Steve, You will need to test the lid switch and see if it is bad and needs to be replaced on the unit. If it is bad, it can prevent the unit from running and spinning. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Ok replacing lid switch AP3180933 - I also need wire harness that plugs into lid switch. Can you help please? Email me also. Thanks.

I have a minor question. I'm replacing the lid switch on my Maytag bMTW5770TQ0. I watched the video on the whirlpool washer and understand the process. The problem I have is my machine does not disassemble the same way as the Whirlpool.
Can you help?
Answer Hello David. You control panel has two clips under the front corners. You will release those with a flat blade putty knife and flip the control panel back to access the switch like the video shows. Then it will work the same way on replacing the switch.
I just replaced the the lid switch and when I select a wash cycle nothing happens, but if i turn it to rinse or spin it works. It just doesn't want to start from the beginning of any selected cycle.
Answer J Ray, The place to start is the water temperature switch 8577786, and check the wiring harness routed between the temperature switch and the delay control timer 8576472, mounted on the back of the regular timer. If the printed circuit board inside the temperature swith has a failure, it can disrupt the timer sequence, as well as not allow the washer to fill and agitate in the wash cycle.
