Have you tried turning the dial a few times for a start. The lid sensor may have had a piece snapped off. Try using a screwdriver to manually set the sensor to work. You could also take off the outer panel and check the wiring for the switch. Let me know how this goes

Hi,

This is a top loading washing machine. Initially, you may want to check the lid/cover ans see if it does not seat properly. There is a switch that has to be engaged when the cover is fully/correctly closed. If not, the switch will lit the warning light as you see it and prevent any further action from the machine.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    Appreciate the post back.

    To fully determine whether the switch is defective or not, a continuity tester is required as well as access/removal of the said switch. This page would show you general idea of lid switches, while here would be an illustration of a generic approach to gaining access to lid switch of a top loading washer.

    Another indicator would be a solid clicking sound if the switch engages but technically the continuity test would be best.

    A quick & dirty check if it is really the switch or not (and in the absence of a continuity tester) is simply (but temporarily) jumping / shorting the wires (two) that goes to the lid switch. The lid switch is a safety feature hence doing this procedures calls for knowledge of basic electrical circuitry and related safe practices when working with electrically powered devices.

Wtw4950xwo.Why does lid lock light keep flashing, especially at final drain and spin?


You have a vertical modular washer. And it keeps flashing because there was an error detected by the control board. Is it washing your clothes properly? Or is it leaving your clothes wet when cycle is completed?

Why does my lid lock keep flashing?


There is a right lid lock and a left lid lock which did you change? The left lid lock is a lock and the reed switch which tells the machine control the lid is closed and can start the cycle.

How many wires go into the lid switch?
If there's only two wires, short or connect them together and wrap the connection with electrical tape.
Then put the timer/programmer on the spin cycle and try if the water drains out and the machine goes to the spin phase.
If this works, then you have a defective lid switch/ lid locker

Washer door will NOT unlock. Just bought it!


Most front loaders come with a timed delay lid lockers which usually disengage after 2 to 3 minutes after the cycle is done.
If the lid locker still does not disengage after 5 minutes ( make sure there's no more water inside ), call your service center, it should be still under warranty since you just bought it

Says lid and won't work


Check the lid switch... sometimes if something heavy or someone sits on the lid, it can tweak it just enough so the lid switch loses contact and will keep the machine from turning on. You can sometimes bend the lid back. Check the lid switch by sticking a credit card between the lid and the switch with the lid closed... does that solve it? let me know.. KEN
