Question and Answers

Q:

my old lid switch 3949247 on my whirlpool LSB6400KQ1 won't unplug - what is holding it plugged in? is there some kind of "catch" on the plug? I don't see one.

A:

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

There is a tab on the front of the harness connection that you have to release. Here is a video that demonstrates replacing the lid switch 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.

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 .

Q:

What would it cost to repair my Whirlpool washer that doesn't spin?

A:

Your symptom indicates a broken safety lid switch. The lid switch must close a contact when the lid is shut or it will not run at all in the drain and spin cycles. The washer is designed so that the motor will stop running if the lid is opened while it's draining or spinning for safety concerns.

The estimated cost of repair would be $150.00
