You will need to replace the part on the lid. This piece pushes on the lid switch letting the machine know the lid is closed. You can by pass this until you are able to get the piece by pushing a screw driver into the hole where the part from the lid went. Be sure not to push it in to hard, if you do you will have to replace the switch also. Be sure to replace the part from lid because this is a safety switch to keep hands and arms out of the machine while it's running.

My washing eco save 6kgs automatic WF-S65007PPD Shows lid open sign after 2 or 3 cycles of working and than stops , i have closed the lid properly but still same the spin and wash inducators are blinking


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
There is likely to be a problem with either the lid solenoid/lock or the 'lid closed' sensor. Both require a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

This is probably a lid cover open protection. Check to see if there is a magnet on the cover, positioned almost to centre (slightly to the right) at edge of the cover. There is some sort of plastic catch to house the magnet. If it is not there, place a magnet at the corresponding area on the washer where the plastic catch will touch when the lid cover close.

This might be Lid cover open protection. There is a small magnet at the edge of the lid cover, housed in some sort of a catch.
If the plastic housing cracked, the magnet might have dropped into the washing drum. To overcome this, place a magnet on the position where the plastic catch will contact the washer when the lid is close.

I have the same problem. I do not think this has a micro switch to activate the wash cycle or spin. I have looked carefully.

I have a gut feeling that this works on a sensor similar to that of a sonic car alarm. It may have gone out of sync and needs to be retuned.

I have tried to find the software but it is not commercially available.
