Question about Washing Machines
Washer will stop washing in mid cycle. Sometimes I can get it to start again by raising the lid and then dropping it down hard. However, it is getting more difficult to make this work. I heard this could be a fuse problem? Any thoughts? thanks.
Relace the lid swich ! it may sound simple but it can be a pain to get to , this should solve your problem though!

I had this same problem, it was the lid switch on the left side of the lid that was causing the problem. It seems to be designed to stop the washer if the load becomes too unbalanced. I ended up taking off the control panel and looking at the switch. The problem switch is a two part brass metal switch, the two parts are connected by a spring. It appears that the join at the spring started to work itself loose easier as I used the washer more. I ended up putting a twist tie around this join (through the square hole and around the part that descends vertically into the washer), and tightening it up well so that the two brass parts would stay connected and not release apart so easily. It seems to have worked well, I haven't had this problem re-appear at all.
The one thing that I am careful of now is the load balance of my washer. Since my 'repair' in effect bypassed the load imbalance mechanism of the washer, I am more careful of how much I put into the washer.
Other than this hiccup, I'm quite happy with this little washer and how well it has performed. Great value for the money!
