Question about Kenmore 27032
Please help me figure out how to work around the "lid-lock" on this machine! I need to open the lid during the agitation cycle to add dye solution, anti-allergen rinse and to make sure the fabric in the machine isn't getting tangled up during the cycle. I tried calling Sears but was told that technicians have a "code" to do this but it is "secret" and I can't have it. If I want to open the lid during operation for self-repair diagnosis--too bad. I have to pay Sears techs to do it... Please help.
Mk, there is two ways to work around the lid. The lid lock works by magnet. If you have a large magnet laying around you can fool the mechanism and run the washer without it locking. You will have to find the spot near the center front and experiment until you get the right spot. The second way is to lift the whole top assy. About 3 or 4 inches in from each end where the top seperates from the bottom there will be a clip that you can push in on and lift the whole top. Now these clips are real strong so you need a good putty knife. Pull up on the top as you are pushing in. This way you can add your stuff while doing a normal wash. The codes are for diagnosis, testing different functions of the machine, it wouldn't do you any good for what you are trying to do. Catriver..post back
