There is a water level switch on the machine. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with this specific machine, but if you will open the rear panel you should find it easily. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch (easy to do it). Another direction to be checked is the water inlet valve (my recommendation is to start with it, and if it will not solve your problem to move to the level switch )- maybe it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. You can easyly open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before starting working on it!!!!!

I had the same problem, take the easy rout first and check for obstructions in your venting. Mine was clogged and it shut itself down (to protect itself?)

I was about to order a new lid switch assembly, but I decided to try one more thing. I disconnected the wires from the check switch and cleaned the connections - there was a layer of oxidation. The machine started right up after I reconnected the wires and plugged it back in.

You can check the lid switches (they are paired) the following way:
1) take off the front and top washer housing panels.
2) look for the wire bundle coming off the lid switch and find the plastic pull apart connector.
3) undo the connector.
4) take an Ohm meter and check the resistance when the lid is closed: a) orange and black wires should complete a circuit, orange and pink should also complete a cicruit, all other pairs shold be "open".
5) check the resistance when the lid is open: orange and white should make a circuit, but no other pairs.
6) replace the defective switch, or replace the complete unit.
7) check the 250V 1A fuse in the left front, replace it if it has blown.
