Finally removed the lid switch. It rained over this weekend and water does get into the latch assembly on these. Seen it.
The model number was under the lid and the lid was locked so I had to remove 2 screws and wiggle the latch free from the strike. The model number is WTW4800XQ1.

The old number to the latch is W10238287. The new number is W10404050.

The new lid switch came just now and I opened it. It comes with 2 Bezels, a white and a gray one. Instructions are simple use either the white or the gray bezel and discard the old one. The new switch is spring loaded and moves easily the old one did not move at all. The new part even has a new snap in dohickey to make it easy to install. Hope to get er installed tomorrow.

I put the new switch on and the washer won't say nothing. No lights and it is locked. Must have a bad control too. Piece of crap!

I predict their is gonna be a lot of money made on warranty work on this piece of crap. The reason being when you close the lid it locks and if the lid switch is bad like this one was then you cannot get your clothes out of the washer.  That right there is frustrating enough to get someone to break the control trying to get that dude to open.

Sadly the owner does not want to spend any more money on this machine at present. I don't know that much about em to guarantee him a successful repair under the circumstances. Does anybody out there in Al Gores internet land have a clue as to what my next move should be? I installed the new locking lid switch and it locks when the lid is closed. I washed and dried the clothes that were in the machine. They apparently belong to a teenage male, basketball shorts etc. The washer had 3 cups of soap in the bottom of the tub for half a load of clothes. It came out of a group home so as of this moment it is up in the air as to whether the owner wants to spend more money on this machine. Already paid $40 for a lid switch we had to special order.

I do no warranty work ,just C.O.D .Was doing find in my business for years.Now its like i,am dead in the water .In yellow pages 25 Years.I just don,t no whats going on out there.No calls all week.I live new jersey.Maybe the end of my business has come.All these front load washer and top load H.E washer are out there and you are right.There are either made like junk or have been redesign over again after they find thats a bad design.Work on about all major appliance.I do try to stay away from the front loaders . Even though i have one.Don,t no want to do .58 years old . too old and stuck working for myself to work for someone and maybe to old for them to hire me.Just thought i needed to get this of my chest. Maybe someone else out there is in my boat too.
