Most washing machines have a safety switch on the lid. If that switch has been broken or a wire fell off then closing the lid does not close a safety circuit and will not allow the machine to enter the spin cycle.

1st make sure the switch is getting depressed when the lid is closed. I am not familiar with your exact machine. On my Whirlpool I can take a screw driver and push the switch in while the lid is open and get the spin cycle to occur. Be careful to not have anything in the machine and keep all hands and any item you might be wearing away from the drum so it does not get caught in the spinning with the lid open. The location of the switch will very, but on mine it was on the right side, on the lip of the opening. There was a **** in the sheet metal in which a flat piece prong slid through when the lid was closed. Let me know if you need a picture and I can post a link to what it looks like on my machine.

2nd if that does not work then you may need to remove the switch and verify it is working. Unplug the washing machine from the electrical outlet. Place an Ohm Meter/Continuity tester across the switch electrical contacts. Activate the switch and you should be able to see that the switch opens/closes its electrical contacts. If it does not, replace the switch with a new one.

You can easily find replacement switches off the internet or your local appliance parts store. You will need the make and model # of your washer when ordering the part. I would check several places. I have found prices very greatly. I would expect the part to be less than $20.

Hope that helps.

User manuals for: Hoover soft wave model number HSWD 126-80 and Servis washing machine Caress 1000A, model no: M3101A If someone could help that would be great :-)

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount.
You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct ;-0)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Servis Caress 1500 A - seemed problem wet cothes Tested on prog14 slow spin water just trickles in from back but no spin Similar on other spin cycles

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I'm sorry but your posting is a little confusing to me. If I understand you correctly the water is just trickling in? Water shouldn't run in on any spin program as spinning is to get rid of the water out of the clothes. Water should only feed in during the pre-wash, wash and rinse cycles and be removed after each of those by the drain motor ;-0)
So- I will address a poor water filling problem in the hope that that is what your washer is suffering from- (if it isn't please 'reply' back to this posting, Thanks!)
If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call and a check that it isn't the control PCB ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

How do you remoce the start switch on a servis caress M2010?

It's probably a broken lid switch.. There's probably an ovular hole under the lid on the right side. Here's a helpful link to access it.

Servis m6160w logic 1600 tripping rcd

many servis have an induction motor but later models have a brush motor.
worn brushes will not cause an earth fault. suspect part of the motor windings are down to earth. also possible you have a leak in the tub or door gasket so that on spin, water is thrown onto an electrical item

Servis 1200A caress washing machine trips electric

A wiring harness may be loose and the vibration has worn through the insulation. Put it on the side and take a look for loose wires and rubbing.
