On each of the two front corners, insert a large slotted-screwdriver (or a stiff putty knife) in the crack between the top and the cabinet. Pry up -- the top should pop up.

Washer fills with water but then will not cycle through after filling tub


I looked up yur model. It is a fine washer. Your lid switch on this model don't allow for wsh or spin if the the lid is ope. Older models would let the washer wash but not spin. This switch here won't allow for wash or spin. How it works

My page on these

Note: this washer is a newer model and I have yet to come across one. I believe your problem to be the lid switch. It has 3 wires. 2 hot ones and another one attached to the frame. Jump them 2 live wires and see if she runs. If it works get a new switch and party on!
I am TheMobilian.

Let me know what ya find out, I am here to help.

Washer won't spin


whirlpool has a drive coupling under unit between the transmission and the motor shaft... should be able to lift unit up and tilt and look under unit usually white in color and has a black rubber bushing between this is designed to break in the event of a overload or binding.... if that is not it check your lid switch as it is designed to stop unit if lid is raised and if it has failed it will not allow motor or spin to operate either..... good luck to you

LG WASHER WON'T Power on


Hello. If the lid switch is defective, your washer may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.

The washer is stuck locked. When turned on it shows OP where the minutes are!! PLEASE HELP !!



Don’t force the lid open and break the lid locks.

Here is the Service Manual and parts look up;

FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

Use this procedure for releasing the washer top from the base;

Un plug the 120VAC power cord to the washer.

To raise the top of the machine. Insert a flat blade putty knife approximately 2.5” from the left and right sides of the washer top, depress the spring tabs securing machine top to the washer base. See page 33 of the SM for putty knife insertion point.


Here is the pic from page 33.c4f9327.jpg

This will get the clothes out.

With the washer top raised gently push to Left and Right lid lock latches to outside of the lid the unlock position.

You can now lower the washer top to the base.

Do you want to DIY the OP error code?

The OP error code could be caused by a Lid Magnet out of position. To do a quick check with the lid open power up the washer. Do you have the OP error code showing? If so take a large magnet and place it over the grey left lid bumper and see if the OP error code will clear the LED display. A Pic for reference;


If that doesn’t clear the OP error code we would need to do deeper troubleshooting. Are you up for that? Let me know……Rich

How do I remove the drum to Frigidaire GLER642AS3?


Unplug the dryer.
Use a putty knife to push back the top lid catches about 2 inches in from the right and left sides, where the top meets the cabinet front.
Raise the lid to the back of the machine.
Disconnect the wires to the door switch.
Remove 2 screws on the inside top corners of the front panel on the right and left sides.
Reach in under the drum and remove the drive belt from the motor and pulley.
Grasp the rear center of the drum and pull up. It may take a little force.
Remove the drum out the front of the cabinet.
