Washer will fill and agitate the load but will not drain the water. There is no humm lkike the motor is trying to start, the timer will not advance at this point. I tried all of the other wash cycles same problem. I bailed the water from the washer and still will not start the motor.

If it fills and agitates but goes dead for drain and spin likely broke your lid switch.....

I hope you are correct as this seems to be lower cost fix than I expected. Any suggestions as to how to get at the lid switch? Is it on the left or the right side? I have the back loose but it is connected to a large bundle of wires and things. It looks like a major operation to remove the back panel.....

Do not remove the rear panel, it cannot be removed, take the case of from the front like this shows then test your lid switch to see if it is broken..

WOW! That was right on the mark. The screw brackets both had broken off. I hope the reassembly goes as smoothly, the new switch is on order. I can't imagine what h--- I would have gone through without the help of this web site and your information.

Many thanks,

Mike Ryan

Not only that, those new style gray switches are just garbage to start with, (a Whirlpool redesign of a part that hardly ever had a problem to one that is constantly breaking).

I will not every use one of those new style switches when I run into a broken lid switch. I carry a stock of the old style lever/bracket/switches and replace with this old setup and never see a problem with them again, except maybe the random case of the low price Cherry Switch going out sometimes which is than only a $5-$7 part to replace next time.

This whole business with the lid switches started about 4 years ago, I started getting a spate of these breaking around the screw holes, all on in-warranty machines. Official "answer" from Whirlpool was that there had been contamination of the plastic during production, and there was a revised part number (it had a "guard" fitted under the lever). I agree with Willie on this, the old "Cherry" switches very rarely fail, I don't think I ever replaced one on a belt drive and maybe the occasional one on a direct.
