My washer will run through the washing cycle and have a short

This answer was rated:

My washer will run through the washing cycle and have a short pause before the draining and spinning part and then there is a click as if the entire cycle is finished and then it coes nothing more. If I manually move the cycle forward to rinse it will start the water flowing to fill for rinse but the wash water is still there. Can you help?

Hi Bryan, Thank you for the suggestion that the problem with my washer might be the lid switch. I do not have a tester to test its continuity right now. I need to get one before I can verify to you that this is the problem with my washer. I will check back into this site when I have an answer to this. Marion.

Okay Marion, thanks and let me know if you need more help.best wishes, Bryan

It might be the two-terminal lid switch. I did not have a multmeter to test it with to find out if this was the problem. I have purchased a multimeter and now I need to know how to get the part out of the washer to test it. My husband is currently away on holiday and will be back this next weekend but if I try to do this myself before then I will need some guidance through the procedure of removal of part for testing. Until I have tested this part I will not know if you have given me the right solution or not. I have watched the video which showed how to test the lid switch and now need help with getting the switch out to be tested. If you can help me with that in the evening Monday or Tuesday this week I would appreciate that. Otherwise I will have to wait for my husband to get back and find time to do it next week. Please email me to let me know if you can help me with this. Thank you. Marion.

okay heres a video on how to remove the cabinet to get to the lid switch. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFsvLiuTniU this will help you.
