I replaced the lid switch in my Whirlpool Ultimate Care II (LSQ96659Q3). All went according to plan. No problem with the lid switch repair. However, when I tested it, the drum slammed to a stop instead of stopping smoothly. (Brakes were working fine before I started my futzing about).
Assuming I knocked something loose, I removed the control panel and loosened the back. At this point, I tested the brakes for the heck of it and they worked perfectly. Problem solved? I'm running a load now to make sure all is well when full of water.
My question is this:
Is there an electrical connection I may have loosened? Danger of a short, possibly? I did find that I had neglected to replace the brass(ish) connectors between the back and the top deck. That's the only thing I noticed awry. I did push the drum far to the left to get at the lid switch. Could I have pushed something out of alignment? Can anyone magically see into my machine and tell what I did?
Grasping at straws. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Even if its to say, step back and be proud of yourself.
