I'm having a little trouble understanding the question because of the spelling, but this sounds like a typical lid switch not making contact either by the depressor on the lit itself or the switch is broken. try depressing the switch with a screwdriver and see what happens. The lid switch will be in a little slot in the top inside where the lid closes.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU 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!!!!

Sounds like the lid switch is malfunctioning. The contacts in the switch may be dirty or rusted. Push down on your switch button and listen for the little click, if it still has a little click to it, spray a little WD40 on it while repeatidly pushing it down several times. Reply back to this post and let me know how you made out.

The 3rd, 4th and the spin (8th) LEDs (from left to right) lit indicates fault code 49
which means the motor controller module detected a fault in the cold
water proportional valve. Raise the console up and make sure the wire
connection between the cold water proportional valve is intact. Reseat
the connection several times to ensure a snug fit connection. Replace
the valve if the connection is intact and snug fit.
