Piece of lid broke off


Sand the area on bottom of piece along with areas surrounding the broken piece. Get another small piece of plastic that is large enough to cover the broken piece and adjacent areas and apply the glue to that using a good epoxy for adhesion. Let it set up and it will hold - trust me.

How to fix a Washing Machine if it doesn't Spin


If the washer seems to complete all of its cycles but doesn’t spin:
1) Be sure the load of clothes is not lopsided. If the tub becomes unbalanced, it may spin erratically or not at all. Open the lid and reposition the clothes. This automatically resets an off-balance shut-off switch. Then, just close the lid and retry.
2) Check the lid switch and the tab on the lid that strikes it. If the plastic tab is broken, the washer may halt during the spin cycle. If the switch doesn’t click when you press and release it, it’s probably broken. If you’re experienced at home repair, you can remove the switch, test it, and replace it if needed; otherwise, call an appliance repairperson.
3) The belt may be loose, worn, or broken. If you’re fairly handy, tighten or replace the belt; otherwise call a repairperson.
4) There may be a problem with the controls; if this is the case, call an appliance repairperson.

How to fix a Washing Machine if it Doesn?t Agitate


If your washer fills with water but doesn’t agitate, the problem is likely to be a faulty lid switch, a broken belt, or a problem with the motor. (Note: Direct-drive washing machines do not have belts.)

1) Check the spin cycle. If this works, the motor is operating and the belt is not broken. If it doesn’t, the belt may be loose or broken. If you’re fairly handy, tighten or replace the belt; otherwise call an appliance repairperson.
2) Check the lid switch and the tab on the lid that strikes it. If the plastic tab is broken, the washer may halt during certain cycles. Press and release the switch. If it doesn’t click each time you do this, it’s probably broken. If you’re experienced at home repair, you can remove the switch, test it, and replace it if needed; otherwise, call an appliance repairperson.
3) There may be a problem with the controls, or the agitator solenoid may be broken. Call a repairperson.

Need to close the bridge cover on 3530c


The bridge cover is the part directly below the lcd screen that connects the finisher to the actual copier. There is a plastic tab that, when the lid is closed, comes in contact with a switch that detects if the cover is open or closed. I suggest you look for that tab and trace to manually depress that switch that is connects with when the lid is shut, you can find out if the tab is misaligned or if the switch is askew or broken.

Mine wont spin


Your problem is more likely a broken lid switch. To test for this, lift the washer cover and look for a small hole in the washer top where the cover was. Push a toothpick gently into the hole and press the piece of plastic you see in the hole downward and listen for a soft clicking sound. If you don't hear a click or the plastic tab is not in the hole replace the lid switch.

Unplug the washer. Check the actuator on the lid that operates the lid switch to see if broken. Open the console of the washer. After removing the screws, the console will lift up and hinge back. Disconnect the plug going to the lid switch. Picture. Check the lid switch [lid closed] with an ohm meter from the wire plug-in leading to the switch. If no continuity, replace the lid switch. You will need to remove the cabinet to replace the switch. There are only a couple screws holding the lid switch assembly and a ground wire connection to the cabinet. Reassemble the washer and test the operation.

Unplug washer, remove the two console screws and tilt console back, remove cabinet clips, unlock lid switch block and then remove the cabinet. Remove the lid switch mounting screws, disconnect ground wire and remove lid switch assembly. Compare old switch to the new one. If the plastic sleeve of the new switch is longer, break off at the score mark. Pull wire partially out of sleeve before shortening sleeve. If the sleeve had to be shortened, the wires must be looped to take up the excess wire. Use supplied wire tie from the new kit. Install new switch assembly. New lid switch

Pay VERY close attention to assembling case back onto base so that sides engage tabs in base.

WILLNOT SPIN OR AGGITATE/IT WILL DRAIN


Just because the rubber part of the coupler isn't shreded doesn't mean that the plastic parts are not broke... There are three stems that protrude from the plastic parts of the drive coupler,and mesh with the rubber section of the coupler... the stems may be broke off... If you smell rubber burning then I would say almost 99% of the time it's a bad drive coupler...If the coupler is not broke and the rubber section is alright then you have a bad transmission... Most likely the main drive gear is bad... Since you said that you can spin the tub by hand, indicates that the brake system is alright, and nothing is caught between the inner and outer tubs... You can rule out a lid switch problem, cause the washer would agitate even with a broken lid switch, but it would not spin..since the machine make any kind of different sound when you run it Like a high pitch squeal or grinding noise?
check the lid switch see if it's not broke... wasn't the lid switch, but I got to thinking it will agitate at the first part of the wash cycle, but when it goes into the slower speed wash, if your lid switch is broke, then it won't agitate or spin...
