Well, you were correct about the lid switch being bad. Being plastic it had eventually separated. So I bought the part, put it in (took me quite a while because of the ordeal with the back panel) and sure enough, it worked. That is, until about halfway through a load when it died again, same deal as last time. It’s not the outlet or breaker, both are fine. Could the new lid switch just have up and died on me? I assume I installed it correctly, not much to it, and it worked for 10 minutes or so.
To be honest, I dread taking that back panel off and having to put it on again. Very poorly designed! I know, Whirlpool even though it’s got a Kenmore name on it.
