    Is the machine an FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW? Can you explain ""The lid doesn?t stay on"" Do you mean the lid locks won't operate and lock the lid? If you can provide a bit more detail I will try to help.

You probably need to replace the lid switch. if you are mechanically inclined or know someone who is, you could bypass the switch and connect the wires to see if the machine will fill and agitate etc.

Wont start, no error codes, what could be the problem?


I would check the lid switch.
These switches are normally made of plastic, and are made really cheaply, and break often.
When they break the washer will no longer start.
Have someone raise the lid and check it out.
God bless your efforts.

My door will not stay shut to play a game what is wrong.my ps2 door was not opening so we thought we fixed it but now it wont stay shut . all lights are on just wont stay shut to even read/play any games...


the tray doesnt stay in. does your ps2 sit on its side where the tray is sideways, or is it straight up? i think you should try rotating it to a point where it should stay shut.

Chest freezer lid


Vacuum is caused by contraction of air. If your temperatures are being maintained the difference in how easily the lid opens and closes is not a point to worry about. If the lid wont shut after it is opened you do have a problem. If the lid is staying open at one corner try, with the lid open give it a slight twist pulling on the corner that is not closing fully. This action should spring the lid back to its original sealing position.

Have to slam the lid


The same thing happened here. It turned out to be the lid switch. It can be accessed by taking off the back plate (behind the controls) by unscrewing three screws and two screw bolts -simple.

I removed the lid switch and tested it with an ohm meter - instructions are on this site. You should have continuity across machine-motor, as well as across machine -line. (These are labeled on the switch).

If you don't have a meter and you still want to see if that's the problem, after you have removed the lid switch, short the machine and line connectors, (you'll see these labeled on the lid switch so you'll be able to figure out which wires go with what) as well as shorting the machine and motor connectors. Both of these need to be shorted. That bypasses the switch and will activate the motor and controls.

That's what I did to confirm that it was all a "lid switch " problem. I ordered a lid switch from this site for $24.95 for the repair, and will use the "shorting process" to do a couple of loads of wash as I wait three days to get the switch. Good luck.
