The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

Raise the top of the machine. Insert a flat blade putty knife approximately 2.5” from the left and right sides of the washer top, depress the spring tabs securing machine top to the washer base. See page 33 of the SM for putty knife insertion point......Rich

Machine won't start, lights are all on and ready to wash


Hi,

If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these:

No power
Lid switch
No power Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?

Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.
Goodluck.

I have a frigidaire washing machine and it spins out just a small amout of water during the cycle, not a lot , have checked the pump and it works, just wondering if it could possibly be the lid lock


It would not agitate if it were the lid lock, just as agitation should stop when you open the lid during cycles. More likely it's something blocking the drain hose. Here is a link to an excellent online repair manual. Click on the picture of the wash machine, then go to chapter 2. Then have a look at Section 2-3.

yes it is a very easy repair actually
you will ned to remove the two screws on the corners of the contol either in front or right on the back corner
flip the control over
you will see two copper dogs and a wire plug

the lid switch is connected to the bottom of the top of the cabinet
you can order the part from www.sears.com
make sure you have the model number correct

My Whirlpool Cabrio top load washer won't start now but it first started by giving LD code when would wash only heavy items like full load of towels or bedding (all others ok). If I let it sit for awhile...


we ran into this problem with ours too. I swear, this washing machine is the biggest piece of junk I've ever bought.

We used to get the LD code at the beginning of each load of wash. We solved this by manually holding the lid down tight until the lock mechanism clicked in place. Once locked, it should stay that way for the duration of the wash cycle.

One day, it just stopped giving us locking problems.

Estate wash machine stops at rinse cycle


Okay...you may have a couple of issues going on with your washer. First of all the "ticking" noise you heard could have been the auger (the upper portion of the agitator) straining with stripped agitator dogs. The dogs act as a clutch mechanism to engage and turn the auger during agitation. If the dogs are worn, they will slip (especially with a heavy load such as towels). The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r823955-replacing_agitator_dogs

Now...a washer that fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle and drain is commonly caused by a lid switch malfunction. The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug.

Soe washer models have the lid switch located under the washer casing near one of the lid hinges. The switch is activated by a rod on the hinge and an acutator. To access the screws and switch, you will need to remove the operator console.

If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

If the switch requires replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. Just use your model number as your search criteria. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price.

NOTE: The "ticking" could also be something tapping against the inside of the washer casing. Loose wires or hoses have been known do this if hanging to close to the cabinet wall. The link I provided explains how to remove the washer casing in order to access the interior to inspect it.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance please post back and elaborate on your symptoms a bit more so that I may be able to assist you better. Please include your complete model number, so that I may be able to determine clearly how your washer is configured. I hope you find this information helpful.

Flashing F what is this


This is usually too much detergent or severely out of balance load. Unplug the washer, this will allow you to open the door to re-balance or eliminate very heavy items from the drum. Close door re-plug and restart machine. If this doesn't do the trick repeat the unplug and reset the dial to rinse/spin to clear excess detergent once finished restart normal wash cycle.
