One of the most common issues is the the washer won't spin. Unfortunately there are many parts to check that could potentially be the reason for this issue: The lid switch is faulty and its preventing the washer from spinning. The motor coupling is faulty, its job is to protect the motor and transmission but it can fail with time due to wear. Drive belt is probably the most common reason for a not spinning washer. The clutch, basket drive and transmission play important roles too!

Lid Switch Assembly: This prevents the washer from spinning when the lid is open. A multimeter must be used to determine that there in continuity in the unit and replaced accordingly.
Motor Coupling: The motor coupling connects the washer motor to the transmission. An overloaded washer could cause the coupling to break. Over time the coupling can also fail due to regular usage. If the coupling is broken it must be replaced with a new part.

It isn't wise to attempt a bypass as there is generally more than a switch in a lid lock - it is often quite a complex component, often incorporating a timer. In the modern computerised washer, if the computer doesn't "see" what it is programmed to see it can cause problems. Far better to replace the faulty lid lock.

F04 E04 means low power voltage to dryer - check both sides of AC receptacle for 110 to 120VAC on each side to ground - check breaker panel for tripped or bad 220VAC breaker. Only one side may be suppling voltage to dryer.
