Lock won't release on washer

Please help. This brand new stacked washer/dryer was used for the first time. After the wash cycle, we waited the required 2-3 minutes for the lid to unlock, and one side never has. Is there a way to manually release the lock...or any other way to get our laundrey out? Thanks so much, Yvonne

Sometimes if you unplug it from the wall outlet for 5 minutes, then plug it back in and let it go through a fresh startup cycle then it refreshes and resets itself and may unlock switch.

SOURCE: Washer won't stop spinning

i am a recently retired appliance engineer of 20 years, if the fault is not right after he has called then write to the manager of the company, if he is sole operator then write to him, explaining it like you said above, ask that the engineer stay and watch till the very end of the cycle as thats where the fault is, if he has already worked on the machine fetch them back? alternatively just ask a different engineer who knows what he is on about, to me this sounds like a circuit board problem either the timer or main pcb module, i presume this is a computer control washer with a digital display, hope this has helped you at least as to where to start, thank you.

SOURCE: need new washer to stack on my dryer!

measure your dryer carefully and check with the dealer where you wish to purchase a machine, regarding
the stacking kit. It may work. They are general standard sized. Don't ry to gerry rig anything or you may have big problems. In your case I recommend using a well known SMALL appliance store that does theri own installations, so they will bring what they may need, but if yours works, they can still use it.Good Luck

SOURCE: I have a fridgaire ftf530fs1 washing machine,

This is usually caused by the door switch. These are fairly inexpensive and very easy to replace. First unplug your machine. To check you will need to remove the wire ring that holds the front door seal to the front panel. To do this go to the six o’clock position and you will see the spring of the wire clamp, grab this with a pair of needle nose pliers. Grab it right where it connects to the wire part of the clamp and pull it parallel to the front panel. This will stretch the spring so it can be pulled over the flange. Next carefully peal the door seal off of the flange. You do this with a sort of rolling motion towards the opening in the door. Next remove the screws that hold the door switch in place. Make sure you have one hand supporting the switch assembly while removing the screws. Now pull the whole assembly out the opening. Mark wires if you need to and then remove the wires. Now connect your ohmmeter to the 2 wire on the bottom you should have a reading of 1500 ohms no less than 1400ohms. If it is below the 1400 or more than 1700 replace the switch. To reassemble reverse the order of disassembly. Making sure the little arrow on the door seal lines uo with the mark on the front panel. The spring can be a little trick to get back on but grab in same position as removal and use the other hand to push it over and around the seal. Here is a tutorial to walk you thru http://appliancehelponline.com/washerdoorswitch.html . If it is within this range the main control board is at fault. Not inexpensive. You can enter your model # at www.appliancehelponline.com to view diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.

Washer Dryer Stacked Combo won't start and didn't drain properly.


Hello Joshua, thank you for your post!
From my understanding your Frigidaire laundry center is not starting and did not drain properly. It is possible that this could be a miscommunication within the laundry center and a reset may help clear that out for you. In order to reset your laundry center you would need to disconnect power from it for at least ten minutes. If that does not help your laundry center you may need to seek assistance from a professional technician for proper repairs. I hope this is helpful and if you should need further assistance please feel free to reconnect. -Matt

Brand new Frigidaire FFLG2022MWO Washer/Dryer Laundry Center. After a wash cycle is finished, the washer will start again after a few minutes. A truly never ending cycle. Please help.


Good Afternoon Mauricio, thank you for your question! Try resetting the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. Wait roughly ten minutes and turn on the appliance. Select a normal cycle and verify if the washer continues to run after ending cycle. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, your appliance could be experiencing a communication error with the control board, timer or could have a wiring failure. I would suggest contacting an experienced service technician to determine the precise cause.

Run the washer without a load in it. Open the lid when it goes to agitate and see if it is actually agitating by hold the lid switch down
with a small screwdriver or a pen. You may hear the grinding noise while it's agitating, just not as pronounced. You most likely just need the "motor coupling" on the unit.
Post back your results.

Tthe washing machine stops working after about 5 minutes of washing sometimes closing the lid a little hard seems to bring it back to the washing cycle. This has happened several times why is it happening?


it may be that the lid switch is going bad. raise the lid and look for a button that gets pressed in when the lid closes. if you can push in on the switch with a small screwdriver or butter knife and the machine runs, then that is your problem. closing the lid had sounds like a switch problem

Agitator starts at begining of cycle before washer is full


Please be carful as running the agitator without enough water will overheat and kick out the motor, however it should be ok when it resets itself.
Yes, the machine should stop agitating when you lift the lid so this too is part of the problem.
After looking at the print I can only suggest that the cam contacts in the timer ( contacts 12 and 14) that start the motor are burned and stuck together.

Washer is filled w/ water and has stopped power, what to look at first?


A washer that fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle and drain is commonly caused by a lid switch malfunction. The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

If the switch requires replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. Just use your model number as your search criteria. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Maytag stacked washer/dryer Model LS7804


OK it may be one of 2 things. I would check the lid switch first. On some maytags the have a lid switch that if it is not working properly it will not let the washer fill. If it will not fill the washer will not wash because the pressure switch did not activate the timer to wash. If the switch checks good you might have a bad timer. If you open the control panel you will find a tech sheet with the wiring diagram. I would follow the fill cycle and check the components. You might also check the water valve to make sure its ok too. But its very rear that both the hot and cold would go at the same time. Good luck!
