Does you washer attempt to fill with water or is it totally dead. If it doesn't fill then you may have a bad inlet water valve. If you are on hot wash---switch to cold wash. if it starts to fill its the valve. If it fills and then goes dead, it could be several thing including the lid switch. A model number will help us help you.

My ge spacemakermodelwslp1100d0ww reads lo when i try to start it


Hello Tina,
The LO code means lid open so the washer thinks the lid is open and wont agitate/spin with the lid open. What to check and see if the lid switch which is basically a magnet is good firstly check on the lid for the magnet to be in place,with the lid open the magnet will be in the upper left corner (ya can check it by seeing if a paper clip or similar item sticks to the magnet) if it seems ok next check where it would fit to when the lid is closed which would be on the top in the front left corner and check and see if that area seems intact and not cracked. If ya find the magnet or the area on the top to be in good shape the lid switch would need to be replaced . The part number for that switch is WH12X10104 the exact name for it is the REED SWITCH and it could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at;searspartsdirect.comapdepot.compartselect.comapwagner.comrepairclinic.com
I hope i have been able to help ya fix your washer,GENE

Dosen't spin, dosen't fill water


your lid switch is a magnetic switch. make sure you have the magnet attached at the lid. if you do still the switch may be bad. question : did the washer fill with the lid open?. if it not then that would be an indication the switch bad. let me know

good luck to you.

My Lid on my washer displays open when I close it and won't start if lid is open... please help.


your lid switch is not working or may be jammed try opening the top of the back of the washer make sure the lid switch is working im not sure if the mtw range uses switch or magnetic recognision with switch there is a small lid switch that clicks when the lid is slightly lifted with magnetic it makes no noise however they can both be bypassed by cutting the switch wires normaly black and red running along the right side of the control board (making sure power plug is not plugged in) stripping the two wires and joing them together

this should work

Whirlpool stack washer will fill but will not progress to rest of cycle


It sounds like the lid switch is not making contact. It is a magnet located on the lid so that when you close the lid, the magnet pulls the switch closed. Make sure the magnet is still on the lid. If you washer lid will not stay open on most models, the magnet is gone because this is the same magnet that pulls the lid switch closed. If you can find where it goes, find a strong magnet and place it on the top inside rim where the lid goes when closed. Turn the machine on, let fill with water. Once this is complete and the machine should start. Take the magnet and move it around the rim until the unit starts running. If you can't get it to run, most likely the switch it's self is bad. I think you will find the magnet on the lid is gone and the machine will start running once you pass a magnet over the place where it goes. If so you will need to replace the part.

GE Profile wont spin,why?


Hello, your problem is going to be with the lids switch, in this machine it is going to be a magnetic contact. You can confirm this my pulling the front panel off and accessing the wiring to the lids switch, If you have electrical knowledge bypass the lid switch using a wire nut and run the machine. If all is ok make sure you replace the lid switch since it is there for a reason. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!!! Thanks for using Fix-ya. A high rating would be appreciated for your free question :)
