Washer will not power on and lid is locked

Unplug it and wait a minute or two, the lid will release. Take out the clothes, plug it back in, put it in spin and close the lid. If it goes back to work, good. If not, check for repair clues.

Kenmore Elite Oasis HE Washer #27087. Doing a load of wash & wash & lock lid were flashing. Could not unlock lid & panel kept flashing. Unplugged cord for 30 minutes. When I plugged back in...

I would think the lid would unlock once you unplugged the machine. Check your owner's manual for any kind of "emergency reset" procedure. Perhaps the lock mechanism is jammed. Have you tried pressing on the lid or tapping it to see if that frees the lock?

I have a Oasis, model 110 270 826 02, serial #CT3270410, that I just had the touch pad ERC control part (8564392) replaced last week. Today when I went to use it, the DU comes up on the control panel...

The DU error code indicates that the control detects a problem with the washer door (lid) unlocking. In this situation, the failure is normally caused by a failed door lock assembly. I provided technical information on this failure in the first image below. You can use this information if necessary to verify a failed lid lock assembly. The control is apparently sending the voltage to the lid lock mechanism to unlock the door but is not sensing that the lid is unlocked. There is a chance that you have a wiring failure or a bad control board so it is best to thoroughly diagnose the failure if possible before replacing components. Be sure that you unplug the washer before accessing internal components. If you determine that you have a failed lid lock assembly, you can use the procedure shown in the second image below to replace this component.

My Kenmore Elite Oasis HE model number: 110.27072603 washing machine shows LID error code. It wont work at all.... went half way through cycle... help.

this washer has a lid switch problem...or possible main board failure, but lid does concentrate on the lid safety switch. If you remember when you open the lid it stops..well, its a safety feature and prevents tub from spinning with lid open...this one is more difficult to service if your not use to working on washers...try unplugging machine and leaving off for awhile...does the door lock? check switch for lid fault

Power comes on and all lights come on, but the washer will not start the wash cycle. After the start button is pushed the lid lock will not lock.

That is why the washer won't start. Replace the lid lock. It is there to stop anyone from putting their hands inside of washer when it ia agitating, by stopping power to the motor.DO NOT try ANY attempts to mmake it work!!!! Injury may result

Lid lock not on, and machine is not going through

On this washer, the dl code indicates a failed lid lock mechanism. Pressing pause/cancel should reset the controls.

You may have to unplug the unit for 20-30 minutes, then restore the power.

If that doesn't work, the only other solution would be to replace the door lock assembly.
