Is this a older model whirlpool..Like a regular traditional topload. and you unscrewed the 2 screws holding the lid switch. If so, you need to unscrew the top councel. 2 screws on the back of the councel at the corners. unscrew, then flip top councel over. then youll see some clips holding the back panel to the whole cabnet. unclip the, with a flat head screwdriver and then the whole cabnet should come off..lift it a little and pull towrds you and you switch should be hanging under the cabnet somewhere if you look under the cabnet..like i said if this is the traditional top load washers....i would need a model number tho to see...but if it is jus put it back together how you took it apart and make sure you dont kink the clear hose when you put the cabnet back into place. Make sure the cabnet seats right on the frame at the bottom..hopefully this helps...

Locked out of trunk 2000 cadillac eldorado release button not working i removed lock on trunk still cant get in trunk


Pressing the rear compartment lid release switch provides an input signal to the instrument cluster. The instrument cluster sends a Class 2 serial data message to the body control module (PZM). The PZM grounds connector C6 of the rear compartment lid release solenoid through CKT 1344 (LT BLU) if the following conditions are present:
?€¢
The transaxle is in the PARK position.


?€¢
The valet lockout switch is closed.

Power is supplied through the following components to the now-grounded CKT 1344 (LT BLU):
?€¢
The RADIO/PHONE fuse


?€¢
CKT 40 (ORN)


?€¢
The coil of the rear compartment lid release relay
The relay coil energizes and closes the relay contacts.
Power is supplied from the CONVENIENCE fuse through the following components:
?€¢
CKT 2040 (ORN)


?€¢
The now-closed relay contacts


?€¢
CKT 56 (BLK/WHT)


?€¢
The rear compartment lid release solenoid
The solenoid energizes and the rear compartment lid latch assembly releases the rear compartment lid.

Htc wildfire s touch screen randomly selecting things


I solved the problem!
Description of the problem: my touchscreen went crazy (it selected random thins, especially in the bottom region of the screen) quite often and every time i had to lock/unlock the phone in order to fix it... but after 30 sec the problem went back!
Solution: remove the back lid cover, the battery and the sd card; unscrew the 5 screws and remove the second plastic lid; behind the battery slot you'll see three metal flap: when I opened my phone one of them wasn't in contact with the card! I fixed it and I cleaned these three contact with alcohol! Now my Wildfire S works fine!

Lid lock indicator flashes and washer will not spin


The lid lock switch is defective and tthough the lid is closed the contact is not short . This connection must be establised as the safety feature when lid is opened to stop the motor from rotating.
So remove the lid switch which is fixed on the hinges section and a possible contact spray can rectify the switch contact. If not replace and set for the washer to spin.

The F30 error code will flash when the dispenser motor cannot be driven to its proper position.



Door Unlock Error

A Door Unlock Error occurs if the door cannot be unlocked.
It will try to unlock the door 6 times before displaying the error.


Door Lock Mechanism broken.
Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly for foreign objects
Check Wire Harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)
Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure


If it is a cabrio:
dU flashes if the following conditions occur:
Excessive force on door lid is preventing lock bolt from retracting.

TEST #8 Door Lid Lock
Perform the following checks if washer fails to lock (or unlock).
1. Perform Manual: Door Switch and Manual: Door Lid Lock tests.
2. Remove the console to access the machine/ motor control assembly. See Accessing & Removing the Electronic Assemblies.
3. Visually check that the P12 connector is inserted all the way into the machine/motor control. If visual check passes, go to step 4. If visual check fails, reconnect P4 and repeat step 1.
4. Check the lid lock motor winding and switches by removing P12 from the machine/ motor control and checking the
resistance values....



Component/Resistance Unlocked/Resistance Locked/Contacts Measured/Contacts Measured:


Motor Winding/35 ±5 O/35 ±5 O/P12-2/P12-3/
Lock Switch - Home/0 O/Open Circuit/P12-1/P12-4
Lock Switch - Lock/Open Circuit/0 O/P12-1/P12-7
Lock Switch - Lid/Lid Closed = 0 OLid Open = Open Circuit/Lid Closed = 0 O Lid Open = Open Circuit/P12-1/P12-5




If resistance values are good, go to step 5. If switch measurements do not match the values shown in the table for unlocked (or locked) conditions, a problem
exists in the door lid lock. Replace the door lid lock.
5. If the Manual: Door Switch or Manual: Door Lid Lock in step 1 failed, then the machine/motor control has failed: Unplug washer or disconnect power.
Replace machine/motor control assembly. Perform the Manual: Door Switch and Manual: Door Lid Lock in step 1 to verify repair.

Heading towards the front right on the engine by the water pump belt spin, leading to the 3 very thick tubing (sitting on top). The header tank lid open. Then disconnect the lowest of the three tubes, but assume a prior trough. Cooling water can expire. Then unscrew the lid, which was connected just deducted this hose. If two Sechskantaschrauben SW10. Among them sits the thermostat, pull them.

Washer stopped working - dryer ok


I checked the electrical schematic and the only thing that made sense was the lid check switch. Opened the top of the washer, checked the switch and it was not working. It is the switch shown below. The red button was not up therefore it is broken.
Just to make sure I bypaased the switch with a jumper and made the washer work.

You can order the lid switch online at partselect.com, the part number is PS60679 and it costs $10.38 plus shipping.

Here is someone else's experience with the same switch.

Well the washer died and would not turn on in the middle of a wash cycle. Absolutely dead. I disconnected it from power and opened up the front panel on which all the control switches and knobs are mounted. This is removed by unscrewing 4 screws at the top of the washer.

Checked the fuse, and found blown. Replaced the fuse, closed the panel and plugged it in. Still not working. Checked the Check switches and found the Check Switch really limp. Checked with Digital Multimeter and found no continuity at either position. Unscrewed the check switch. Removal and re inspection with DMM of the check switch confirmed it was bad. Opened up the check switch and found contacts were blown.

Installed a new check switch making sure all the connecting wires go in the right places. The wiring diagram in the washer was very helpful in doing so since u dont want these wires reversed. Adjusted the plunger which operates the check switches when the lid is opened to make sure it is not over or under operating the switches. This is done by loosening the bolt holding down the check switch assembly and slidint the whole assembly forwards or backwards till the plunger has just enough push on the switches. This is done to avoid the plunger from exerting excessive pressure on the check switch and the safety switch in lid open or lid closed position. (both switches are operated by the same plunger according to the lid position)

Closed panel cover and plugged the washer in. There u go, it was alive again!
