Hi, when done agitating it does not drain, model # XXXXX XXXXX type is 111
Expert:  Bryan replied 8 years ago.
ok I think you definately need lid switch then.on your lid you will see a peg that goes through a hole in top of machine this peg hits a switch that tells the machine to go to drain and spin ( its a safety so kids cant stick hands in spinning machine) try putting the washer in spin and push down on this switch (gray down in hole) and see if it starts to drain and spin.sometimes these switches break where there connected to machine and fall down so peg cant reach it. let me know Bryan
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
We did that, but it still doesn't work.
Expert:  Bryan replied 8 years ago.
you need to replace lid switch.even if you pushed it down doesnt mean its not bad. do you have wire nuts? you can jump switch out and if it runs you will know for sure. let me know Bryan
