W10837741 Whirlpool Washer Lid Strike

100% Guaranteed genuine parts logo
The Top Load Washer Lid Strike attaches to the appliance's lid and helps communicate to the appliance that the door is closed and operation can begin. If your washer’s lid doesn’t close properly, or if the mounting tabs of the current piece are visibly broken, you can quickly and easily replace the faulty strike with this part. This strike is white in color and is specifically designed to be used with white appliances. Installing the latch will require basic hand tools, but no disassembly or prior repair experience. You must unplug the washer or shut off the house circuit breaker for the appliance before installing this part. Also make sure you turn off your hot and cold water supplies. Helpful Tip: We also recommend using affresh® Washing Machine Cleaner* (item W10501250) once a month to help reduce odor-causing residue that can build up in your washing machine's drain without proper care. *affresh® brand products are owned and distributed by Whirlpool Corporation.

Replacing a faulty lid strike on a Whirlpool washer (model W10837741) is a relatively simple task. It can be done with basic tools and minimal DIY skills. Follow these steps for a successful replacement:

2. Remove the old lid strike. Unscrew the two screws securing the lid strike in place.

3. Secure the new lid strike in the opening. Position the lid strike against the interior wall of the washer, so it covers the opening where the old lid strike was.

By following these steps, you should have successfully replaced the lid strike on your Whirlpool washer (model W10837741). With some basic DIY know-how and a few basic tools, you can easily replace your washer's lid switch for better performance and optimal functioning.
