I have a high efficiency washer and I am unable to start my washer because the lid lock keeps flashing and will not lock. What do I do. This wager is not a year old.


Check the door catch see if there is anything stopping closure.if that is okay try resetting the machine.most reset by switching of from the wall socket.then hold the start button in for at least five seconds whilst switching on from the power point.it sounds like the child lock is trying to activate.read the manual to see if you can set this to default.

Why does my lid lock keep flashing?


There is a right lid lock and a left lid lock which did you change? The left lid lock is a lock and the reed switch which tells the machine control the lid is closed and can start the cycle.

Aquasmart lid


Is the lid lock tang on lid broken.
2.9 Lid Lock
The Phase 7 Washer uses the same lid lock that is used on
the Phase 6 series 11 & 12 machines. The difference being is that the lid is now locked for the entire cycle. When the lid is locked the Lid Locked LED will illuminate. Once the spin
has completed, the lock will release and the lid can be
opened. To open the lid during the cycle the
START/PAUSE button must be pressed, the machine will
come to a halt, and the lid locked LED will extinguish.
If the lid is left open, the machine will be unable to lock the lid
and the cycle will be halted. The machine will play a tune
and the lid lock will flash until the lid is closed and START/PAUSE is pressed.
• If the lid-lock fails in the closed position, the locked lid can be forced upwards and out of the
lock. Note: This is the only time in which we would recommend doing this.
• If the harness is damaged, the complete lid lock assembly will need to be replaced.
If the power supply is cut during the spin cycle, the machine will keep the lid locked until the rotor has ceased to turn (3 to 10 secs). Only then will it release the lock. The motor is acting like a generator and allows the lock to stay energized under the bowls inertia.

The lock light flashes and the machine continues to try and lock even though it appears to be locked...stops filling Maytag neptune TL


Are you up for troubleshooting? I will try to keep it low tech.


Do both Lid locks remain locked (you can't open the lid ) and you just have the Locked LED is flashing?


I'm assuming if you hit the OFF key the machine will unlock is that correct?


If so I feel you have lost signaling thru the lid locks possible do to corrision. We would start on the Left Hand lid lock which would require removal and very carefully opening up the case halves of that lid lock.

Here is a pic of what we might find inside...... some corrision;

You have lost signaling thru the Left Hand lid Lock. The washer has not see the lid go closed thru the signaling with the magnetic reed relay in the Left Hand Lid Lock.


You could have a Lid Magnet out of position or severe corrosion. You can place a large magnet over the Left bumper like this and see if the OP error code clears;

See this post for troubleshooting the OP error code Left Hand Lid Lock Troubleshooting I go over OD error code troubleshooting but you troubleshoot the issue the same way for the OP error code.

If the Lid Magnet is not out of position you may have an open circuit thru the Magnetic Reed Relay as shown in the Pics of this link Left Hand Lid Lock Troubleshooting.

Whirpool washer type 111 will not spin


I wouldnt think so, Have you checked the lid switch? If it stops when it get to the spin cycke, you have either a bad lid switch or your missing the piece on the lid that pushes on the switch.
