I have a Whirlpool Cbrio top load washer. it won't start it's cycle. Once it senses the load, the lock lid light flashes and it does nothing. can this be fixed?

I would say that the lock has failed. Either the lock itself or maybe the pin or latch that fits into it when you close the door may have cracked / broken. If the machine thinks the door / lid is still open, it wont let you start it.

Washer doesnt drain

Suds Detection

Sd is displayed when the machine/motor control, by analyzing drag on the basket, detects a suds-lock condition, and is steady on while the control then runs a mini-clean out cycle. If the clean out cycle is unable to correct the over-sudsing problem, the cycle ends and Sd flashes in the display. This may signify:
Excessive detergent usage.
Basket cannot engage during drain step.
Mechanical friction on drive mechanism, not allowing basket to engage.

The lid lock is broken, can it be unhooked, machine will not engage with lid unlocked.

Following is the Whirlpool service manual for their Cabrio washer, basically the same as the Kenmore Oasis.

It has a troubleshooting section as well as diagrams and instructions concerning the Lid Lock.$FILE/8178583.pdf
