Lid Locks- Fills for 2 seconds and stops


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer lid won't lock the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer door won't lock the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.
Main Control Board If the washer door won't unlock the problem might be the main control board. This is not common. Normally the problem is with the lock mechanism.

Locked Door


I got so made that i just ripped it open by pulling on the flimsy handle and it actually bent the spring thats under the decorative round door cover just enough that it now works perfect. The door cover feel off and i did break the underside of the handle but i was a ble to snap everything back on. The handle cover went back on too.
