Why the lid locking led is blinking after lock the lid and stay standby with out working ?


The unit will not operate in this condition until the lid lock signals a locked condition. The controller is signaling that it believes the lid is not locked. Assuming the lid is actually locked, then this might occur because of a bad wiring connection (check the lid lock switch assembly and the cabling at the controller) or a bad lid lock switch/sensor.

My washer sensor turns on and then the lid light starts flashing and the washer will not turn on. What is wrong with it?


What is the model number listed on the unit?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)

MFC8860DN SAY'S SCANNER LOCKED?? WHAT'S THE FIX??


Hello my friend.If you open the scanners door under the document cover is one switch that locks and unlocks the scanner.Move it to the position that shows that is unlocked.If this doesnt work it means the scanner lamp is in the park position and is stuck. You need to lean the printer away from the sheet feed side and bump it on the side. This should fix it. If it doesn't turn off the power and remove the two screws that hold the scanner lid on. Then remove the other 6 screws located under the lid on the left side while the lid is hanging from lid open sensor cable . After removing the base screws you can set the lid on the scanner again while you lift the scanner bed exposing the scan lamp mechanism. Push it a few inches in the machine and close the lid. You can do a test by powering the unit on and hold the lid open sensor button located on the bottom left of the lid. The system should initialize and bring the scan lamp back to the proper position. Turn off replace all screws and your done. If it doesn't work the first time push the scanner lamp more into the scanning area and repeat until works.

I just replaced the door lock because the door would not lock and now the machine will not work.


It doesn't work at all 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.

Lid lock will not lock.Getting "dl" error.


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.

First time I turned the power on the machine said "Warning system error S0001"


The cause is the lock lever of scanner unit is locked. Lift the scanner lid and unlock the scanner unit with the switch located under the lid on the left side.

Fails to lock


Joe,

You are going to have to replace that left lid lock, Left Lid Lock. You don’t need to replace the right just unplug. Here is what is happen. The left lid lock and right lid lock “Lid is Locked” signaling are in parallel going back to the control board that is why you need to pull the plug on the right lid lock after replacing the left lid lock. The lid locks are designed to latch into the lid only a small amount with them broken off the mechanism over shoots and a signaling slide switch contact signals the control board the lid is not locked “FL” code.

The left lid lock assembly is the important one with its dual signaling function, Reed relay and lid magnet to signal the lid is closed and the “Lid Is Locked” signaling. If you don’t replace the right lid lock (I would not) tape up the plug and try to secure the wiring harness to prevent the wires from chafing. I think you have the manual and Sears Parts direct info from my previous post but just in case; The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.
