SOURCE: washing machine will fill with water but then

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

When the washer fills but does not agitate or spin then you can check if the lid switch is fine. You can jump start the lid switch by connecting both the wires with each other or use the third wire to act as jumper between the two. After this if the problem is solved then replacing lid switch is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

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.

Locking mechanism


replace the lid lock ! its a safety measure. I would not recommend removing or bypassing lid lock. just replace it. without the lid lock it will work with lid open. good-day ! if you really what to bypass the lid lock. Find the wire that goes to the switch. Splice the wires together and the machine will think the lid is shut all the time. if you can not get top of washer off. just call an appliance center and give them the model and serial number. and they should be able to tell you. good-day !
