  1. My guy wants 180 to replace to lid lock… Said the problem was the lock from draining the water completely

  2. The newest replacement (Jan 2019 for me) does NOT have the mounting screws at 1:35. The white bezel is attached to the black plastic lock mechanism. You slide old lock, bezel and all, to the left and it comes out in one piece. Reverse that for putting in the new lock until it clicks into place.

    Also, my replacement lock came already in the LOCKED position, witch i figured out when i tried to shut the lid after completing installation. I kinda poked my finger in the and got the new lock to unclick.

    Overall, great video, it made this repair very easy.

  3. My washer is 2 years old and changed this lid lock twice. This whirlpool washer is a total headache and waste of money and your time.

  4. Well, this repair didn't work for my similar situation. I checked underneath the washer to check if the belt was broken but it is intact. I'm not sure where else to go with this :o(

    UPDATE: This was not my problem. After further research it was determined that the SHIFT ACTUATOR was faulty. I replaced that and the washer is back up and running. Hopefully this helps anyone out.

  5. Woo Hoo!!! Just fixed my Amanda Washer by myself. Lid Lock Switch. And I'm a Female, 69.
    Thanks to your
    YouTube Video. I bought the part $57.00 at An Appliance Parts Store. And I used a 1/4 "
    Nut Driver on my Black and Decker Drill. I plugged the washer in the wall after I installed the
    Part, but the light was still flashing, unplugged it 2 more times, and even
    turned off and on, the circuit breaker. That seemed to "reset" it. Thank you!!!
