Our Oasis Washer was locking but not registering that it was locked last month, but with button pushing I could get it to work. Now when you hit the start button the digital reader says LID and the lid is not locked. Can we determine if the lid lock is borken or is it a sensor? And after we diagnosis, then what?
I have the same problem. A friend did too. My friend told me that this washer is a lemon - control panel costs over $600 - NEED TO BUY NEW MACHINE - would be cheaper in long run. Sears should have recalled this Lemon.

It means your lock latch on the lid is not functioning properly. We had the same issue, and it was because our lid would not lock, and you know you can't run a load without it locking itself. I pulled the part number off of our lid lock latch and replaced it. It works just fine now. Some of the older ones were built with a bad latch the tends to go out, so they changed the part a little and the new ones are supposed to last a very long time. Hope this helps.
1. Disconnect the electrical cord from the wall. 2. Move the washer forward about 12 inches. 3. Lift the lid and grasp the front of the washer top with both hands. 4. Place your knee on the front of the cabinet and pull the washer top forward and up.
The lid lock mechanism is secured to the bottom of the washer top with two screws. Remove those screws and the wiring will be exposed. Unplug the harness from the old mechanism and connect to the new one.
Secure the new mechanism to the washer top and let the top down.

Door unlock failure Excessive force on door lid is preventing lock bolt from retracting. Wash media buildup is preventing lock bolt from retracting. Machine/motor control cannot determine if door lid is in an unlocked state. See TEST #8, page 14
That is why the washer won't start. Replace the lid lock. It is there to stop anyone from putting their hands inside of washer when it ia agitating, by stopping power to the motor.DO NOT try ANY attempts to mmake it work!!!! Injury may result
