I bought this for a compatible Whirpool washing machine. Installation was incredibly easy and consists of only 3 screws (two in the body and a ground screw) after removing the case (also not hard). The cables comes in a "sheath to keep them from getting in the way. Only issue is, when you remove the current switch, make sure you save the 3 factory screws you remove. This does not come with any screws with which to replace them. They all look pretty standard and a trip to Home Depot could probably make up for any lost ones...but save yourself some trouble and keep track of them, especially if you remove the old piece prior to ordering this one.

If your washer is refusing to rinse and spin and drain, it's a very good chance this part is the issue and it obviously take a beating over the years with constantly getting flipped (how many times has your lid slammed down hard on accident). Don't hire a repair man....there are even vids on youtube if you can't figure it out, but it really is very easy to DIY. Whole thing took me about 45 minutes and cost $12. Repair man would have been easily $100+

Part was exactly as needed. Easy to install, and saved us a considerable amount of money by doing it ourselves. Very satisfied.

Excellent replace for my broken switch, easy replacement washer now works perfectly. Would highly recommend if your washer is not going through to the spin cycle.

This item can be used for almost any unit (if you're handy). If it's not a perfect fit, you can typically modify it enough to work.

I installed this product over a month ago and my washer has been working with no issues. This replacement part was a perfect fit. Make sure you get the right part number for your washer before you go ahead and buy.

The product was an exact replacement for the defective OEM switch. Very good value compared to other sources for the same item. It arrived earlier then expected. Very happy with item.

Our Whirlpool clothes washer, which is maybe five or six years old, stopped draining. Various articles on the web stated that there was about a two-thirds chance that a broken switch was the reason. It could also have been a bad pump (much more expensive) or just something stuck in the drain line (a bit of a pain to find and remove).

You can test to see if the electrical connection with the switch is good, but we didn't have a tester. To the touch the switch part that is activated by closing the lid seemed broken, and the part was so cheap with free shipping that we took a chance and just ordered it.

Buying and installing it ourselves saved us at least $125 in appliance service fees. We carefully followed a YouTube video on how to take off the old part from our washer and replace it with this new one. I wouldn't say it was a snap, and it took us probably an hour and a half in total -- watching and rewatching the how-to video, pushing back the top control panel and removing the "skin" or cover of the washer (fairly easy), installing it (easy, though you've got to move the washer cover and lay it down) and then (the hardest part) getting everything back together and setting the washer back properly on its base. Our washer is not exactly new so there was some rust on the bottom of the base, which made getting the cover seated properly took several tries. Now that we've done it once, we could do it a lot faster and easier the next time, if we ever have to do it again.

We plugged in the power cord, turned the Whirlpool on, and presto, it worked perfectly.

Anybody with a couple of basic tools and an hour or so could probably replace this part. I would say that two people working together makes the job much easier. My spouse and I worked on it together on a Saturday morning.

Delivery from the vendor was within the time frame promised, but don't expect the same kind of two-day rapid delivery that you get on orders fulfilled directly by Amazon. I think delivery took about a week. The part itself is a bargain.

When the dryer quit working I figured I would have to shell out hundreds (a thousand) for a new washer. Did a Google search for "washer stops during wash cycle and will not spin and will not pump water out". Read a couple of pages that suggested that it was likely this switch. I opened the washer lid and used a screwdriver to press down the switch and noted that the lever was not functioning properly. Watched on YouTube a video on how to take my dryer apart and how to replace the switch. I was ready to order the switch from an appliance supplier for thirty some odd dollars, when I decided to see if it was available on Amazon. Was I ever glad. With my Prime membership I had the part in two days at a fraction of the price with free shipping. Installation was a breeze following the instructions on YouTube.

My only misgiving: that I am not married and therefore there was no one there to impress when the washer came back to life.
