We need to determine if you have a magnetic switch or a manual switch.
1. Do you see a finger-like object, or tab, sticking out from the underside of your lid and a hole in the body of the washer where that tab should insert to connect with the switch? If so:
1. insure the tab is there, not broken off or shortened, and that it has something within the small hold to connect with, a lever of some sort. Try sticking a screwdriver in the hole and starting your washer to start operation. If it works, you may need to replace the tab.
2. If you have a magnetic switch, you won't see a hole, but you should see a white, rectangular magnet case tucked under the inside of the door. When you close the door, you should hear a slight "click". If you don't, you may have a bad lid switch to replace. Or,
3. Insure your door is straight and not twisted, bent or warped and is allowing the door to properly sit on the switch. One common thing that happens is that something heavy has been set on the lid and it has popped inward, leaving it somewhat concave in the middle, raising the edges of the lid and not allowing the switch to connect. Simply push or tap the middle of the door from the inside and pop it back into shape. This should give the lid a bit of a hump on the outside and bring the edges and the switch parts down and together.
For further trouble-shooting, I'm going to need the make and model number. The make should be located on the console or top. The model number will be located on the inside of the lid or on the back of the unit

SOURCE: Hello, My Yamaha YZF600 motorcycle wont start.

Hi there jfdnet! Yeah if you hear the relay operating and the starter is getting no juies then you need to replace the realy. First i would check you see if you get power to the starter. Use a light tester to check the hot wire on the starter and if you do have power the starter is bad. If you have power going to the relay but not going to the starter then the relay needs to be replaced. It is always good to use a light tester of multimeter to back track from the problem to find the source. Example: You turn the ign. switch but the starter wont turn, start with the tester at the stater them back track up to the ign. switch. Eventually you will find where the power hits a "brick wall" of a faulty part. I hope that this helps you out. Post any more questions you may have.

Amana washer lid lock wont quit blinking


Your washer lid lock button is locked and lid was not put down before it locked, which is why the light is flashing. Therefore, push the "START" button until you see the lid lock button is off (Approx 3 seconds). Once it is off, then you can put the lid down and push the start button again, which will lock the lid into place. The washer will NOT drain or wash or spin unless the lid itself is in the locked position. If you were able to get the lid down and locked and it still doesn't work, then you need a technician to replace a wiring harness. However, you mentioned that the lid lock button was flashing, therefore, it stands to reason that your lid is NOT locked down.

Doesn't spin during spin cycle


What happens over time is the lid gets a little bent from use , reason it wont start unless lid is put down is because there is a lid switch that is called a safety switch, you might have to bend down lid some or this: Ok, first check under the lid, there is a peg that goes into the top edge of the washer. That is a switch. The idea between this is that it is a safety feature for mostly kids, so that when the washer is on that high speed spin cycle, that a child does not open up lid and stick there arm or hand in and have it injured. Most washer are designed so that the washer will only spin when the washing machine lid is down. So, of course you have it down, but sometimes the lid might have got a little bent or warped. So first try with lid down pushing down on lid while on spin cycle. If still wont spin, most likely it is that switch that that peg goes into, if you take a knife or flat head screw driver, with lid up on spin cycle and push into that hole with the knife or flat head screw driver and do not here a click when pushing it and releasing it, then you need to replace that switch, it is pretty cheep, normally under 20 bucks and a appliance store and when picking up the part they can tell you exactly how to replace it yourself, it is pretty easy and only takes a few minutes.

Machine fills up with water, goes through the agitate cycle then stops and wont go into next cycle


Your Lid latch switch is most likely broken, you will need to replace it, you can not bi pass this switch. you can order it from your closest appliance distributor.
Unplug or turn off breaker to washer.
Replace by removing front panel, should be 2 screws at the bottom of washer.
Slide and depress lid latch down to release.
unhook wires and reinstall the same.

Washer wont start


If the machine fills with water normally but then just sits there, you might have a bad lid switch - that's the safety interlock that won't let the machine start unless the lid is closed. Check the switch and also make sure the lid engages it when you put the lid down. Of course there could also be a problem with the motor, but first check that switch.

Disk won't spin


My sons playstation 2 went to browser and after reading the only one solution of putting a cup on top of it, we did try that but we found that the problem was the silver piece had moved, so after we moved the silver piece toward the middle toward where the disk goes, then closed it, and put a little pressure on top and you could feel it turning , then we opened it back up, the silver part had moved back again, but the playstation started back working then without any pressure.. so my suggestion is move the silver part close to where the disk goes.and it will move itself back....It sure worked for us..I was beginning to think money down the drain for this playstation 2....thank God it worked so maybe it will work for you...
