Question about Washing Machines
My washing machine did this and I found that the lid switch had gone out. I bypassed it and keep out of it when it is spinning. You could do this yourself but it is a safety issue and if you have children around may not be a good idea. When you raise the lid look for a plastic piece on the lid that is inserted into the machine when you close the lid. As soon as you locate the actual switch (unplug machine from the power source) remove he two wires from the switch and tie them together. However, machine will run through all cycles even with the lid open. My Whirlpool washer has been running for 21 years. I bypassed the lid switch about 5 years ago.
