Dryer doesn't stop when door is opened and light does not work (new bulb)


see the next steps and proceed with common sense: God bless you
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. To determine if the lid switch has failed, watch the part testing video at the bottom of this page. 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

How to fix a Washing Machine if it doesn't Spin


If the washer seems to complete all of its cycles but doesn’t spin:
1) Be sure the load of clothes is not lopsided. If the tub becomes unbalanced, it may spin erratically or not at all. Open the lid and reposition the clothes. This automatically resets an off-balance shut-off switch. Then, just close the lid and retry.
2) Check the lid switch and the tab on the lid that strikes it. If the plastic tab is broken, the washer may halt during the spin cycle. If the switch doesn’t click when you press and release it, it’s probably broken. If you’re experienced at home repair, you can remove the switch, test it, and replace it if needed; otherwise, call an appliance repairperson.
3) The belt may be loose, worn, or broken. If you’re fairly handy, tighten or replace the belt; otherwise call a repairperson.
4) There may be a problem with the controls; if this is the case, call an appliance repairperson.

"OP" ERROR CODE


Take a look at this post, it’s for troubleshooting an OD alarm but you can follow the same troubleshooting path to see if you have a lid magnet out of position or a broken lead on the magnetic reed relay located in the left lid lock. The lid magnet operates the magnetic reed relay to signal the lid is closed/the lid is open. Try an external magnet on the left bumper and see if that clears the OP error code with the lid open. If it doesn’t I would try reseating the left lid lock plug (possible corrosion issues). If that doesn’t clear the OP alarm it would be time to pull the life lid lock out of the machine and inspect for a broken lead on the magnetic reed relay or other corrosion issues with the left lid lock. The left lid lock is in a location near the bleach dispenser. Links to the SM are in that post and a link for parts look up. Post back if you have questions

MY WASHER STOPS ITS CYCLE WHRN IT GETS TO SPIN,BUT IF I PRESS REAL ******* THE TOP THE TIMER KICKS BACK IN


Sounds like you have a lid switch problem. The machine thinks the lid is open and it is designed not to run with an open lid. Depending on the styl of whirpool washer you have there is two ways to fix it. First raise the lid of your washer. Do you see a pin on the underside of the lid and a hole in the top of the machine it would fit into? If you don't, try tightening the 4 phillips screws on the hinges on either side of the lid. If they get loose the hinge wont strike the lid switch. If you do see the pin and the hole I mentioned, you likely will actually have to replace your lid switch. If you have this style, send me back your model number and I will type you up a step by step replacement of it.
