Whirlpool cabrio washer, I try to start a load by pushing the start button, the lid lock clicks shut like normal but then the light starts blinking and the washer wont run.


If it's the lid locking light that's flashing, then the Lid Latch assembly needs to be replaced. It's latching, but the switch inside it isn't working and doesn't recognize that it's latched.
They have the part and a video on how to fix it at this parts company.

I have a Whirlpool Cbrio top load washer. it won't start it's cycle. Once it senses the load, the lock lid light flashes and it does nothing. can this be fixed?


I would say that the lock has failed. Either the lock itself or maybe the pin or latch that fits into it when you close the door may have cracked / broken. If the machine thinks the door / lid is still open, it wont let you start it.

Lid will not lock, Washer will not start: I press


There might be the issue of the lock as the control board tries to send signal to close the lock but it can not. This is common issue with the lock more than the control board.
