Question about Estate TAWX700JQ Top Load Washer
Our estate washing machine stops filling then if you open the lid and shut it a few times it'll start back up then stops again now it won't go at all
This problem is commonly attributed to a lid switch malfunction. If the model number you have this listed under is correct, the lid switch is mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If your washer is not configured in this manner, please post back with your COMPLETE model number (located along the tub rim under the lid) so I can confirm how your washer IS configured.
If you determine that your lid switch is broken, the following link will give you the necessary steps to replace it: http://www.fixya.com/support/r397101-replacing_lid_switch You can order a replacement switch on line at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look for item 9 under the "Top and Cabinet" heading. The lid strike is listed as item 20. NOTE: Another thing that can cause lid switch malfunctions, is the lid being bowed. This can occur from placing heavy items (such as detergent bottles and clothes baskets) on top of the washer. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know before you rate the solution. I hope this helps you.
