SOURCE: washer will not spin

I'm having a little trouble understanding the question because of the spelling, but this sounds like a typical lid switch not making contact either by the depressor on the lit itself or the switch is broken. try depressing the switch with a screwdriver and see what happens. The lid switch will be in a little slot in the top inside where the lid closes.

I will give you a few things to try that are non technical and let’s see if the Control Board will let you in Service Mode. If so we will try lock and unlock the washer in Service Mode.
The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.
Let enter Service Mode;
Enter the Service Mode by pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”

Board Output Test
While in Service Mode, pressing the Delicates key will begin the Board Output Test. This test turns on a
specified output after a key press. (Pressing the Delicates key again cancels the test.) All outputs
will be turned off after five (5) minutes.

Now Press the Colors / Jeans key this should lock the Left and Right Lid Locks….. did it?

If the lid locked now press the Extra Rinse Key and this should Unlock the Left and Right Lid Locks….. did it?


Let me know and we will go from there. I’m trying to get a feel for what Control Board functionality you have……Rich

Its normal for the machine to cycle the lock before starting its cycle. I'm assuming your machine is a bravos style.

SOURCE: want to disengage lid lock on maytag centennial

I had the same problem. The lid lock assembly is broken. If you are under warranty get it replaced. If not remove the top of the washer and take out the switch assembly. The 4 wires going in are Yellow, Red, White, and Blue. If you short the white and blue together, the washer thinks the lid is closed. If you short the red white and blue together the washer thinks the lid is closed and locked. The yellow is only there to activate the electromagnetic switch.
Disconnecting the switch assembly will not work.
The electromagnet locks the lid and it also unlocks the lid. It is not a matter of cutting the power to the magnet.
Installing 2 switches that connect the red white and blue is the best option if you want to remove the lock.
The first switch should connect the white and blue. (LID CLOSED)
The second should connect the red to the white/blue connection. (LID LOCKED)
After that the lid should work.
Please post a follow-up if this works for you.
GOOD LUCK

I have a Whirlpool Cbrio top load washer. it won't start it's cycle. Once it senses the load, the lock lid light flashes and it does nothing. can this be fixed?


I would say that the lock has failed. Either the lock itself or maybe the pin or latch that fits into it when you close the door may have cracked / broken. If the machine thinks the door / lid is still open, it wont let you start it.

Amana washer lid lock wont quit blinking


Your washer lid lock button is locked and lid was not put down before it locked, which is why the light is flashing. Therefore, push the "START" button until you see the lid lock button is off (Approx 3 seconds). Once it is off, then you can put the lid down and push the start button again, which will lock the lid into place. The washer will NOT drain or wash or spin unless the lid itself is in the locked position. If you were able to get the lid down and locked and it still doesn't work, then you need a technician to replace a wiring harness. However, you mentioned that the lid lock button was flashing, therefore, it stands to reason that your lid is NOT locked down.

Cae2743bq will not turn on all lights on and lid lock is lit up


Try this, worked for me! :)

New WHIRLPOOL Top Load Washer
Model #'s CAE2743BQ, CAE2763BQ
Cycle Selector Knob key dance: [CCW=Counter Clockwise and CW = Clockwise]
Start On "NORMAL"
1 step CCW (Left)
2 steps CW (Right, Right)
1 step CCW (Left)
1 step CW (Right)
Stay on "HEAVY DUTY"
(If unsuccessful LEDs will not flash, and you must return the selector to the Normal Cycle position and
wait 4-5 seconds before retrying. )

If you are successful in the process, all LEDs will be flashing
Toggle between HEAVY DUTY and NORMAL until ONLY the RINSE light is on, then press the
START button for about 30 seconds. Machine will then enter CALIBRATION mode for about 2 - 4
minutes. DO NOT RAISE THE LID

Wont start


If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these: 

No power
Lid switch
No power Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?

Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and 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.
