Whirlpool Washer Lid Switch (3949247)

Thursday, December 7th, 2006

This Whirlpool lid switch is very commonly used in Whirlpool made washers. The point of the lid switch is for the tub to stop spinning when the washer lid is opened. It’s a safety precaution just in case someone decides to stick their hand inside the washer while the tub is spinning. Checking the lid switch for continuity would tell you if it’s bad. You could do that by using an ohmmeter. If it shows no ohms, you most likely need a new lid switch.

Whirlpool Washer Inlet Water Valve (285805)

Wednesday, December 6th, 2006

If you’re getting no or little water inside your Whirlpool washer, it probably has something to do with the inlet water valve. Checking the solenoid coils for continuity could tell you if they’re bad. To check continuity, you would need an ohmmeter. If the meter shows 0 ohms, the coils are bad. This two solenoid water valve is the most commonly used in Whirlpool washers.
