I have a Tecra M2 S630 and was able to fix my left hinge by removing it and drilling out the rivet and replacing it with a 6-32x1/4 inch machine screw and a nut. Total cost was $4 for a package of nuts and screws from Radio Shack.

Hello Thor,

Could you please post a picture of your laptop lid joints( Hinges ) so i can have a look at the problem and accordingly suggest a solution? Most of Toshiba's Lid Problems are due to damaged Hinges or Cracked Lid Covers near the Hinges

Washer just stopped during the wash cycle. Water still in tub. Opened it and closed lid...washer came back on. I opened it again to see if it was moving (it was) and closed lid again. It came back on and...


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description your bang-on... it sounds like a lid switch problem.

...unless the actuator on the lid is broke, if so there`s the problem.

Make sure the switch is being held in place via the two screws along the side, if they are loose tighten them, if it is broken, it will need to be replaced.

Here`s a helpful link for changing it out,

The switch in the lid is so loose the tab will not operate it... How do I take it apart to tighten?


Open the lid, the screws that hold it are in the lip of the washer. 2 phillips screws. You should be able to hold the switch and tighten the screws without removing tha cabinet. I found a marvelous video that shows how to replace the switch HERE

How do you open the dryer to fix the belt


First before you you raise the top, open the cover on the back by the motor and let the belt loose from the motor pulley unless the belt has broken. If it has go to the lid. Slide a thin flat blade under the front of the lid and feel for the two clips several inches in from the corners. Push straight in on a clip while pulling up on the lid at the front edge and it will release the lid at that point. Do the other clip. Lift the lid. Three are usually two screws, one on each side holding the front tight. With the screws removed, pry out by each of the push clips on the side. The front should be come loose. Swing it away slightly paying attention to the wires to the door switch. Slide the new belt over the drum and work it to where it ran in the past. Put the front back on and snap the lid down. When putting the front on guide the front panel and the drum together at the felt seal. Open the panel on the back near the motor. Reach in and spring the belt tightener over and put the belt around the motor pulley. Let the spring tightener tighten the belt. Put the cover back on.

Washer Doesn't move from cycle to cycle


this washer has a problem with the lid hinge screws coming loose. check the left hand hinge and you will find the screws loose.
this cause the lid switch to not engage and then nothing will happen until it thinks the lid is closed.
try to tighten the screws and listen to see if the switch "clicks" when you open and close the lid.
that should fix it until the screws come loose again.

My Hotpoint washer dryer WD865 moves around the room making loud noises when on a fast spin? The internal drum seems more loose than normal?


I had the same problem. You can open the top lid (2 screws at the back and then lift) The weight which is on top is secured by three bolts, all three of them were loose so weight was going from one side to another which made a terrible noise. Tightened the bolts and noise was gone!
Dryer still not working though.....

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.

Kenmore washer just stopped


Open and close lid, listen for 'clicking' sound. If no 'clicking' sound, check/replace lid switch. Also try tightening the lid hinge screws on the left side. if these screws come loose, the machine will not operate
