You will first have to remove the top panel where the switch is housed. To do that, you will have to unfasten the screws that keep it in place. Once the panel has been removed, you will then have to first examine the design with which the switch is set in place. If it is simply screwed to the body, you can unwind the screws and take it out. If it is held in place with holders, you will have to exert a bit of pressure and then pull it out. After you have removed the switch, see back of it where the wires are connected to analyze the fault and then repair it. Please make sure that the machine is not connected to the electrical power supply.

Sharp automatic washing machine model ess 139 cannot spin


How To Fix A Washing Machine That Is Not Spinning or Draining
Sometimes the computer will send fault codes to the motor because of:
1. An electrical spike
2. A load imbalance
3. A fault in the computer module itself To perform the Master Reset, carefully unplug the washing machine from the power outlet and leave it unplugged for one minute. After one minute is up, plug the washer cord back into the wall. Next, open and close the door of the washing machine 6 times within 12 seconds to send a "reset" signal to all the components. (This is a common fix that many appliance repair mechanics use - it works on about 50% of all washing machines.)If that did not solve the problem then it may be the "Lid Switch". Top loading washing machines that have a faulty lid switch will not turn the agitator and the spin cycle will not start. However on some washing machine models it will still agitate but not spin. To properly check this you must remove the lid switch. (The lid switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame.) The proper procedure for removing the switch will vary by different washing machine models Water Level Control / Pressure Switch". This is usually always the defective part when your washing machine pumps the water out but will not spin and also whenthe water overflows on your washer. You can check this yourself by removing the 4 screws that hold the control panel in place. Once removed you will see the Water Level Control Valve. To identify it look for the part with the small plastic tube attached to it. Once identified, pull the plastic hose off the water level switch and blow air into it. If the tube is clogged with soapy residue, then you can try forcing vinegar down the tube and in the switch itself by using a turkey baster as this will dissolve the soapy residue. If the switch is visibly cracked or burned you will need to replace it

My washer isnt adgertating what do i need to do to fix it?


If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. To determine if the lid switch has failed, watch the part testing video at the bottom of this page.

Washing machine starts then stopps after a few minutes if you push on the door and hold it the machine will start again but once the door is released it stops machine is a front loader .


Safety switch on the door itself is possibly bad. This isn't an easy fix due to the location of the switch. Good Luck hope this helped some
