Repair Skill Level:

The lid switch is used on top load machines to tell if the lid is opened or closed.

Failure Symptoms: When the lid switch fails the unit may not be able to fill, wash, drain, or spin.

How to Test: Use a multi-meter to test the switch for electrical continuity. If there is no continuity replace the switch.

*Continuity is the presence of a complete path for current flow. A continuity test is a quick check to see if a circuit is open or closed. Only a closed, complete circuit (one that is switched ON) has continuity.

*Continuity testing should be attempted only when voltage is NOT present in the circuit being tested. Always unplug the device or turn off the main circuit breaker before attempting a continuity test. Ensure that all capacitors are safely discharged.

    If your washing machine stops mid-cycle, the most common reason is this part has gone bad.
