Right part, works well. Freight was a little high in my opinion. Travel time slow, maybe time for a new horse and buggy. Thank you

The right part for my Kenmore series 80 washer
August 26, 2023

Fixed the issue of my Kenmore series 80 washer not advancing to rinse/spin cycle. Easy to replace, a little tricky putting washer back together. Glad I went with the OEM part and not a third party.

Replaced the lid switch of my Kenmore 80 Series washer. Switch works well and installing it myself saved at least 100.00.

This part fit perfectly
July 25, 2023

This lid switch fit perfectly and solved the no drain/no spin problem with the Kenmore Series 80 washer purchased in 2021. Was easy to install although getting the case back on the frame was a bit irksome.

The original switch looks exactly the same as the new one.

Not sure about how long lid switch should last
July 17, 2023

I had a repairman install the new lid switch. It has worked for two washings ,but I am not sure how long the lid switch will last. My complaint is that my previous lid switch lasted for 3 months and then broke. I always gently closed the lid and never slammed it. The repairman said that the plastic had broken. Perhaps Whirlpool could use better plastic or figure a way to have the lid switch last longer, like at least a year or more. Maybe use some metal parts where the plastic parts are most likely to break. A free installation of the new lid switch would have been welcomed after ny old lid switch had broken too soon,

easy as it gets
July 10, 2023

I needed a part for my clothes washer and there is not a Sears near me anymore, so I ordered the exact part I needed from Sears Parts direct. The web site even provided a video on how to install it.

Good equipment, poor shipping

Shipment was very long and not as promised. Part was easy to install and looked to be from the manufacturer.
