Hi Zach,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

The first thing I recommend checking is the drain pump and drain hoses for clogs or restrictions. Here is a video that demonstrates gaining access to the drain pump on a washer similar to yours; Video . Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts. The washer in this video may not look exactly like yours but the procedure is basically the same. Make sure the drain pump is not blocked or seized up.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website; Sears Home Services .

Here is a link that you may use to view the parts list diagram or purchase any parts needed for your appliance; Sears Parts Direct .

I hope this is helpful. Check the things I have covered here and if I may be of further assistance please reply to this post.

Q:

Why won't my Whirlpool washer operate in the spin and drain cycle?

A:

The lid switch (key#11) is likely broken preventing the motor from operating when it's in the drain and spin cycles. The lid switch is located underneath the top. In order to access and replace the lid switch, the washer cabinet will have to be removed.

  1. Disconnect the power cord from the power source.
  2. Remove each screw located behind the control panel end caps.
  3. Slide the control panel towards the front and lift and hinge it over the rear panel.
  4. Disconnect the 3 wire lid switch harness connector from the top.
  5. Pop the two gold colored cabinet clips off (key#6). See image below.
  6. Tilt the cabinet towards you and slide it away from the washer.
  7. Remove the two screws securing the lid switch to the top and remove the harness.
  8. Reverse the procedure to install the new lid switch.
  9. Reverse the steps above. See "Reassembly notes" in the image below.

The part number of the lid switch is #3949247. I added a link to Sears Parts Direct with the Lid Switch looked up for you. Click on "Switch" to open link.
