WHIRLPOOL 5 CYCLE/2 SPEED- MODEL # XXXXX ONCE WASH

WHIRLPOOL 5 CYCLE/2 SPEED- MODEL # XXXXX


ONCE WASH CYCLE IS COMPLETED, THE RINSE CYCLE DOES NOT BEGIN AND WATER IS LEFT IN WASHER.
I would check the lid switch, if it's broken, the washer will agitate, but no spin or drain.

Ok, there is a flat plastic object on the lid that fits into a slot on the washer. Is this, what you are referring too?

It's what the plastic tab pushes, it's held on by 2 screws.

I located it and It's broken. How do I make the repair?

You have to remove 1 screw on each side of the control panel, then disconnect the lid switch and remove the 2 gold clips one on each side, then the entire front of the cabinet lifts off, allowing access.
