Re: Washer will not start

It sounds like the lid switch may be bad or have come loose. Open the lid and there should be a thing on the underside that pokes into the washer when you close it. At the place where it pokes into the washer you should see the top of the lid switch and it should be flush with the washer body. Stick a screwdriver into that hole to push down the switch and it should click. Pull the screwdriver out and it should click again. If it does click then close the lid slowly and listen closely near the switch to see if you still hear the clicking.

If you don't hear the clicking, then you will have to change the lid switch (usually costs about 30-50 dollars) or just bypass it. If you do bypass it, be careful. It will still spin even with the lid open and can be dangerous.
