SOURCE: lid lock stays on and constant beep on excellence washing machine

I am having the same issue and hope someone can post a solution. I have found a work around though. Mine does it when it is on a 'Regular' wash cycle, I found that if I put it on Permanent Press it works fine.

SOURCE: Lid lock light beeping continuously and flashing

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

SOURCE: Simpson ezi sensor 8.0 kg won't spin lid lock flashes and alarms

Did you fix this, Leila Bell?
Also having this problem with Simpson EZI sensor 802 model washing machine. This type of error message (flashing lid lock plus beeping) is not in the manual. I suspected blockage (a sock?) so checked connection of drain hose with bottom of machine, but nothing there. May try taking the back off and looking into the pump.
Better if someone has an easier approach.

SOURCE: hi i have a simpson

We had the same problem. Electrolux repairman came last week and replaced the lid switch parts with a new designed part. Told me the original part was subject to recall because of a problem with the design, was getting wet and stopping the maching operating correctly, and causing shocks. Ring Electrolux, should be covered under the two year warranty (but because the fault was there when the machine was bought, shouldn't matter even if warranty period had expired)

My machine stops after the rinse cycle, the Lid Locked sensor constantly beeps and it won't advance to spin.


Sounds like the filter might be clogged up.. Not sure what model you have. The filter is usually located on the right front bottom corner. Twist counterclockwise to open and clean ...just replace reverse manner.. Hope that helps..

Have the lid lock adjusted and always check that the bowl load is balanced. What you have is the machine is reading the lid as open and the spin will not occur until the lid lock reads closed.

Simpson eziset 750 t/l stops at first rinse with lid lock led flashing and alarming!


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
There is likely to be a problem with either the lid solenoid/lock or the 'lid closed' sensor. Both require a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(
Good luck,

Simpson ezi sensor 8.0 kg won't spin lid lock flashes and alarms


Hi
To solve the beeping and lid lock light flashing and the machine not doing a spin dry. Do the following.
I have a SIMPSON EZI SENSOR 8Kg top loader. This is what I did.
WARNING HIGH VOLTAGE. switch the power off and unplug the machine.
DO NOT do this if you are not familiar with working with high voltages.

To get access to the lid lock switch,
1. Remove 2 screws at the rear of the washer.
2. Remove 2 screws at the front of the machine located under the lid and covered by small round plastic plugs.
The top cover can now be raised gently from the front.
3. Remove the 2 screws that hold the lid switch.
4. Remove the clear plastic cover from the lid switch.
5. DANGER HIGH VOLTAGE ( Verify that power is off)
6. Find 2 blue wires these go to a magnetic reed switch (25mm long 3mm Diameter).
Cut the blue wires and discard the reed switch. insulate the ends of the blue wires and push them back into the track in different directions so there is no possibility that they can make contact with each other.
7. Find 2 white wires these go to a set of contacts that are mechanically closed by the solenoid.
8. Pull out the contacts and the 2 white wires.
9. Cut the white wires at the contacts, strip 5mm of plastic off the wires and twist them together, The wires will have corrosion, clean them with sand paper, they must make good contact. I recommend that you solder them together.
10. Insulate them and push them back into the track.
11.Reassemble starting with fitting the clear plastic cover.
Your good to go BUT BUT BUT,

WARNING
The Lid safety protecting during the spin dry cycle will no longer function,
So don't do this if you need the safety of the lid closed during the spin cycle.





Remove 2 screws at the back of the machine
