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.

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

No power to rear diff lock on 80 series landcruiser


The rear locker will only operate when the centre diff lock is engaged (amber light on dash) and your speed is below approx. 5mph.

If the rear locker indicator does not illuminate, check the 10-amp "Gauge" fuse in the internal fuse panel.

If the light flashes but doesn't become steady, this is probably a siezed / jammed rear locker. On soft ground, repeatedly turn the locker on and off while driving in gentle circles to see if that frees it up. Also, tapping the actuator while an assistant operates the locker can help free it up.

Why do may Dell inspiron 6000 allways lock when i close the computer. And when i open again i have to restart the coumputer. And the locker light signal with the 9numbe comes on .


Go to the control panel > power Options......Unselect Hibernation, and change the setting for what the laptop does when the lid closes. By default, when you close the lid, the computer will go into sleep mode. This is one of the worse things Windows ever put into practice. Nothing but torment and trouble follows sleep mode. Change the setting to "do nothing" and make sure everything else does not say sleep or hibernate.

4wd light on and locker switch flashing


Sounds like the drivetrain is in a bind, this happens a lot when the truck is not used in 4wd very often but this should fix it. On a small incline with no traffic turn locker switch to 2wd and let truck slowly coast backward while in neutral and turning the steering slightly from side to side. You will hear and feel a thump when your front driveshaft disengauges and your 2wd light comes on.
