Customer Question
Pearl my whirlpool machine...

Pearl my whirlpool machine ( model LSN1000HQ0) will agitate but it won't spin or drain...please help!

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Model LSN1000HQ0 I would guess its about 15-15 yrs old.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I hope so

So this is a common failure for these Whirlpool top load washers as they get older. The problem is that your lid switch has failed. For safety reasons the timer will stop before it drains and spins and won't advance and won't run even if you advance the timer manually. The lid switch just needs to be replaced to resolve the issue so below is a link to the part as well as a video on how to replace the switch.
