I have done 2 loads with this washing machine and can't get a tech out for a week. The owner's manual states that the lid is open. It is not. I have turned of the breaker to the machine for 15 minutes. Same result.
Sounds like a defective lid switch,unfortunately the only thing that can be done is to replace the lid switch.the switch is wired into the main control board and if you mess with it,you could possibly void your warranty.best advise is to wait for service tech.sorry

I would say that the lock has failed. Either the lock itself or maybe the pin or latch that fits into it when you close the door may have cracked / broken. If the machine thinks the door / lid is still open, it wont let you start it.
you need to replace the lid lock. the latch probably broke in 2, and the broken part is whats keeping the lid closed. if you have clothes inside you can open the top by using a putty knife to release the front clips holding the top of the machine down. push each clip in and lift up. you will also be able to access the lid lock this way.

TEST #8 Door Lid Lock Perform the following checks if washer fails to lock (or unlock). 1. Perform Manual: Door Switch and Manual: Door Lid Lock tests. 2. Remove the console to access the machine/ motor control assembly. See Accessing & Removing the Electronic Assemblies. 3. Visually check that the P12 connector is inserted all the way into the machine/motor control. If visual check passes, go to step 4. If visual check fails, reconnect P4 and repeat step 1. 4. Check the lid lock motor winding and switches by removing P12 from the machine/ motor control and checking the resistance values....
