What is the washer lid switch screw sizes to hole the switch in place??
The screw is 1 1/8" long and is phillips head but we do not have the screw size.
I ordered and received a new lid switch part number AP310001. Using the same ohm meter as I was directed to use to determine if my old switch was defective, it appears that the new one is also defective. I want to determine if my test process is correct.
I set the meter to RX1, put the black test wire into the hole marked: -com and the red into the +V-(ohm symbol)-A hole. The switch connector has 3 wires. I touched the other end of the red and black wires to the outside 2 connector wire and got a reading of about 35. I understood that it should read "0"
Is the new switch defective? If not, where should I look next to see why my washer motor still doesn't work with the new switch installed?
The tub fills with water, but agitator and spin function do not work. Thanks!
Answer Hello Greg,
Set the test meter to the resistance setting RX1. Touch the leads together to make sure the meter reads Zero. Zero is another term for "continuity". When you are not touching the leads together it will read OL, (this means overload. In other words, too much resistance to give a reading [no continuity]). Now you are testing from black wire to black wire. It should read open until the switch is activated. When it is activated, it should read Zero again, (or the resistance of the meter leads. This will sometimes be .02, .03, etc...).
My machine will only fill in with water and won't do anything else.
Answer Hello Jabc. Based on the information you provided, you need to check and see if the lid switch 3949238 is bad and needs to be replaced on the unit. 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
My machine will not turn on, I get a clicking sound and lid locked keeps blinking.
Answer Hello Gloria. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the lock assembly is bad and will need to be replaced.
There is a hose coming out of the switch with the two black wires don't go any where. What is it for?
Answer Hello Jimmy. The grey tube is a protector for the wires on the lid switch 3949238 to hold them into the clip under the top of the washer.
When the lid is close the switch makes two black wires one, is that right?
Answer Hello Jimmy. Yes, with the lid closed the two black wires close the circuit of the unit.
Will this lid switch work with my kenmore model 110.22632100 ?
Answer Hello Carlos. Yes, based on the information you provided, it sounds like the lid switch 3949238 is bad and will need to be replaced in the unit. Hope this helps.
