if indeed this is your model number, you ll need to remove the 2 screws across teh bottom of the front of unit, the front panel will then "slide downward" and releas from the unit and acessthe lkid switch from underthere , never had to "drill ann switch" usually unscrews and is replaced as an assembly

Amana washer lid lock wont quit blinking


Your washer lid lock button is locked and lid was not put down before it locked, which is why the light is flashing. Therefore, push the "START" button until you see the lid lock button is off (Approx 3 seconds). Once it is off, then you can put the lid down and push the start button again, which will lock the lid into place. The washer will NOT drain or wash or spin unless the lid itself is in the locked position. If you were able to get the lid down and locked and it still doesn't work, then you need a technician to replace a wiring harness. However, you mentioned that the lid lock button was flashing, therefore, it stands to reason that your lid is NOT locked down.

Lid lock broken can I overide?


Washer not starting Cycle:
I would have to slam the washer lid before the washer recognized the lid was shut.
What I did to fix:
1. Ref the link below for Schematics
http://blog.kennyluong.com/Tricking-A-Maytag-Bravos-Washer/
2. Looking at the Lid Lock section of the Schematic:
Place a jumper between pins 2 and 3 of J15
This engages the 1st switch (Lid Lock) so, I don't have to slam the lid anymore
3. Since my Lock switch (2nd switch), which is engaged with a magnetic, is working, my work is done.
If you find that your machine is still not starting the cycle, you will need to
replace the Lid Lock mechanism or ref the above link for temp bypass.

Affinity frigidare front load washer won't start. It beeps with message flashing (DR)


Hello zabbster - Typically the DR or DO error code indicates that the door switch is not closed. Make sure that the door lock is completely closed. If the door is closed, make sure the door latch is not broken. If the latch is broken, you may possibly need to replace the door lock switch.

Frigidaire Stackable model #FEX831CSO door won't open


Unplug the machine and where the lid is latched you can push a piece of wire wire in the same hole it latches through. The wire will bottom out after in the hole about a inch. Push it slightly farther and try raising lid as your pushing. All the lock is is a metal tab that pushes up and down. After time the enclosure it's attached to splits and makes it fail but it can be opened with whatever goes farther in that hole then the latch itself.

Frigidare washer will not go into spin mode


Does it click when closing the lid ? Sometimes , the lid switch arm , will work inserting something into it , but not with the lid closed . Try checking it using the lid itself . Occasionally , the arm wears to where it has to be pushed farther down to work so the actuator on the lid cannot push it far enough down . Have to replace the lid switch for it to work properly or bypass the lid switch from under the console .

Washer wont spin


check the lid switch,it is prob. a magnetic kind,for some reason lint wraps up on it and pulls the wires,it can be bypassed only for time to check its operation,
Do Not leave switch bypassed as this is a safety issue.
