Default Grey Wire for Lid Switch Melted
Brand: Whirlpool   Age: Less than 1 year   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


So I believe that my lid switch shorted out and I found the end of the gray wire melted and hanging disconnected from where it was hooked up in the bottom of the washer. I look all over the bottom of the washer and could figure out where it was hooked up at orginally so I could hook it back up after I replace the switch. Does anyone know where the gray wire connects to.

Thanks!!

Hi.

Provide the model number of the washer and also where the gray wire connected on the other end?

Simon.

Model Number is LSQ9659LG1.

The gray wire is connected to a connector which plugs into the lid switch.

Thanks

Hi.

The other end of the gray wire is connected to the timer contact GY.

Simon, this gray wire doesn't run to the control planel area where the timer is, it runs to the very bottom of the washer with the wiring harness. This is why I am so confused about where it plugs in at, because it seems to plug up somewhere at the bottom. I attached a photo showing the wire.

Thanks for your help!

Go to Radio Shack or an auto parts store and ask them for a Molex plug pin removal tool.

Hi, Mark.

Sorry, looked at the wrong diagram. The gray wire from the lid switch goes to the motor plug. Unfortunately it's not marked at the diagram, so check witch contact is missing at the plug.

Thank you.

Simon.
