Question about Washing Machines
Stopped with 9 minutes left in cycle. Lid locks and unlocks, can set for new cycle, sensing mechanism comes on. But nothing. I'm not sure, but I may have heard a very, very faint motor niose this morning.

Unplug the washer first. How to open the service lid. Latches are approx 4" in from corners in front (where the little crack is below the lid) insert a putty knife, pushing in on the latches and pull up as it gives. Hold onto the side you've released and pop the oter side and lift up.
Now you will be able to see the lid lock; center front from underneath. Use a 1/4" nutdriver and remove the latch.
Now as far as I know, pn:8563937 was replaced with: W10059230 Bought mine from www.midwestapplianceparts.com.
Install is simple; 3 screws (1/4") behind the back panel will allow you to access the plug. Just feed the old one out and the new one in.

It appears your lid switch/door latch has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question
