SOURCE: LTF2140ES0 washer just beeps three times, wont start

Frigidaire engineers are so smart they programmed it to beep 3 times for door lock problem, draining problem and other problems in the internal electronics and didn't bother to give the users specific info to read off the machine.

SOURCE: have a maytag bravos quiet

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
Ld means long drain and is displayed when it takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out the water to a point where the pressure switch resets. To solve this problem make sure that the drain filter pump assembly located inside the bottom front panel is clean and after cleaning if the error returns then the pressure switch needs to be tested and if bad then it needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

SOURCE: want to disengage lid lock on maytag centennial

I had the same problem. The lid lock assembly is broken. If you are under warranty get it replaced. If not remove the top of the washer and take out the switch assembly. The 4 wires going in are Yellow, Red, White, and Blue. If you short the white and blue together, the washer thinks the lid is closed. If you short the red white and blue together the washer thinks the lid is closed and locked. The yellow is only there to activate the electromagnetic switch.
Disconnecting the switch assembly will not work.
The electromagnet locks the lid and it also unlocks the lid. It is not a matter of cutting the power to the magnet.
Installing 2 switches that connect the red white and blue is the best option if you want to remove the lock.
The first switch should connect the white and blue. (LID CLOSED)
The second should connect the red to the white/blue connection. (LID LOCKED)
After that the lid should work.
Please post a follow-up if this works for you.
GOOD LUCK

Ge washer whre5550k2ww control lights come on but nothing else

This might be a problem with actual switch in lid. Washing machine will NOW WORK, if the switch in lid is not working. It is there for safety, so small child will not reach in when machine is in use and get injured. Machine is designed to only work if machine is closed and switch under lids is working.

Whirlpool High Capacity washer, start cycle , it fills with water then no agitation, and no spinning.

next time send the model number,open the lid,look on the right side and there should be a hole in the top,that's the lid switch,it's used so the washer won't run if the lid is open for safety reasons,set it to spin and with a screw driver push down on the plastic piece in the hole,if nothing happens push in and release,do this a few times,if you don't hear a clicking sound when you push up and down the switch is bad or close the lid and open it an inch,close it and open it a few times,no clicking sound the switch is bad.
