Look for an obstruction at the hinges, the junction of the lid to the main body which will not allow the door to open further. Please use a good lighting and look behind the door flap with the lid up, get help to have the lid held up and it could indicate the reduced play.

Washer fills up with water but does not start to wash/agitate


if you don't hear the motor running you have a bad lid switch,if you do hear the motor but no agitation you have a broken motor coupling.
most likely you have a broken lid switch,close the lid,then open it around 6 inches,close it and open it a few times,as you do this if you don't hear a clicking sound the switch is bad,part number 8054980 and it's around 25 dollars.

watch this video, when you click on it look down on the left side it will say replacing new style,click on it and it will show you your model.it will show you how to make sure it's the lid switch but if you don't hear any clicking when you open and close the lid the switch is bad,also if the lid is pushed in from putting the laundry basket on top of it open the lid and wack the center of the lid to pop it back up,i've done this before when the lid is dented in and this fixes the problem,the arm that's connected to the lid doesn't hit the switch correctly with the lid dented in but usually the switch is bad and needs to be replaced.

watch the first part of this video and it will show you how to open the top console,this is different from your lid switch this is just to get you into the top so you can change the switch.good luck,if you need anymore help let me know and i hope this helps you out

Unfortunately not much
You can take it to the shop but they will charge you outrages price
Try banging it softly against the bottom part of your palm where the bone is
Hope that helps

The fault is a back light problem, it could be the power connection to the inverter, because you can see a dim video image.
If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

Have a kenmore elite washing machine which i purchased in 2005. The machine will stop in mid cycle and will start again when the door (top load) is opened and shut again. Could this be a problem with the...


what cycle does it happen in?close the lid and open it a few times,does it make a clicking sound,if it does i would say the switch is good,also you can do this,next time it happens open the lid carefully without banging the machine so you don't disturb anything,get a screw driver and stick it in the hole and see if it runs, if it does i'd say it's the switch,but i've seen this before right before it goes into the spin cycles,the clutch doesn't fall in the tranny. and when the lid is opened and closed the clutch falls.keep an eye on it and see where on the timer this happens,make a mark and see if it does it in the same spot,depending on how hard you close the lid it could be the switch,the timer sticking,i've tapped the timer when something like this happens and it sometimes starts or the clutch in the tranny,when you close the lid did you ever notice if you heard a clunking sound and then it starts to spin..also if you open the top console,unplug the lid switch and stick a jumper wire in the two outside holes of the part you unplug,the lid switch is closest to the right side clip and it's a white connector, you can bypass the switch to check it, all it is is a safety so the machine won't run with the lid open or instead of doing that you can stick a screw driver into the hole and let the machine run like that if you think it's the switch,let me know what you find.

Hi, the charcoal in my grill goes out after about 45 minutes


Somtimes using a charcoal grill can be tricky...are your charcoal briquetts fully lit and ashed over before yo start cooking...if so..the next trick is to get a good "draw" so the grill operates properly...you have to get air in the grill thru the botom vent and out te grill thru the lid vent at just the right rate to get a nice stream of smoke thru the lid vent without flaming up under the food.You have to make sure that you have the bottom vent partially opened to allow air to flow thru...remember air in thru the bottom and out thru the top....also try to use a good quality charcoal such as "Kingsford" because they burn longer than any I've ever used....It's a trial and error thing.....PS....don't try to relight by squirting starter fluid...This is very dangerous.... hope this was helpful..
