1. Disconnect the electrical cord from the wall.
2. Move the washer forward about 12 inches.
3. Lift the lid and grasp the front of the washer top with both hands.
4. Place your knee on the front of the cabinet and pull the washer top forward and up.

The lid lock mechanism is secured to the bottom of the washer top with two screws. Remove those screws and the wiring will be exposed. Unplug the harness from the old mechanism and connect to the new one.

Secure the new mechanism to the washer top and let the top down.

My washer is locked won't open


Will Not Unlock
• Press off. The motor control is not responding if it
takes 4 minutes to unlock. The motor control is
either bad or disconnected.
• Unplug and reconnect power cord. Wait 20 seconds
for machine to unlock.
• Check lid locked switch circuit. Circuit should be
closed at machine control.
• Check for loose electrical connections at lid lock and
at machine control board.
• Push lid closed to make sure nothing from inside is
pressing against it which may keep it from unlocking.
• If necessary, remove clothes by disconnecting power

to washer, and open top cover with a putty knife.Here is the part to order.

The load finished on my whirlpool cabrio washer (topload) but the machine won't unlock the lid?


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.

The machine suddenly stop working right after finishing water had filled (the next action should start its washing cycle). Then there is no response, just as electricity is disconnected from it. Thank...


try opening the lid a couple of inches and close it down a few times,do you hear a clicking sound?if not the lid switch is bad.on the right side of the lid you should see a piece of plastic connected to the lid that fits into a hole in the top of the washer,this hits the lid switch,stick a pen or something in the hole and see if the washer works,send the model number and i'll tell you what switch you have on your washer,the model number is on the back wall of the opening where you put the clothes into the washer or to the left of the lid switch.if your lid opens strait up and backwards the number is directly under the lid when it's in the open position

Clothes look drab after washing them.


Is the machine new or old? How long has this been a problem? Has this been occuring slowly or has it started suddenly? Before you give blame to the machine, I suggest you wash your clothes at a laundromat or a friend/relative washing machine to see the results you get. Also, the detergent could be partially at fault especially if you use too little or too much (too much will cause a film to build-up on the clothes that cannot be washed away enough durung rinse). IF AFTER TRYING THESE SUGGESTIONS YOU STILL HAVE THE PROBLEM, open the lid while your Maytag is washing to see if the water level is sufficient and to see if the aggitator is moving; note- you may have to open quickly and check very fast to see if there is aggitation movement because some models stop the washing if you open lid (all models stop the rinse/spin action if you open lid.Goodluck, Macgivor

My hoover galaxy washing machine stops when clothes are not balanced properly.i have to even out the clothes then start the machine.if the clothes are balanced it finishes its cycle.if not the machine...


Hi

It is normal for the drum to sway excessively and hit the balance switch if the load is not evenly distributed around the drum or if you have excess cloths.

Once the balance switch is trigerred, you can reset by openning and closing the door. It is a safety mechanism which stops the spin cycle if the drum sways excessively.

If this tends to happen often, then you need to make sure the machine is properly balanced and not leaning too much to the back.

Also the drum suspension rods do tend to wear out over time and loose their firmness, causing the drum to sway excessively. You can check this by opening the lid. Pushing down and from side to side onto the agitator, and seeing if their is a firm bound on the drum. Also making sure the drum returns to centre position. If the suspension springs feel loose and wayward, then they will need replacement.

Regards
Ash

GE Front Loader Washer - Not washing


It sound like a lid switch issue. If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. Look that the switch is not broken or loose. If all is fine, you should replace the switch. Good luck!
