Won't start when cover closed

your lid safety switch is shot,you need to remove 2 side control panel covers that pop off,then remove 2 screws that are under here, then control panel will separate from top to let you unplug lid switch connection to the control panel,then open the top cover by popping clips inward on the 2 front corners with a putty knife or something flat like this between the top and front covers,then raise top up and lean back against the wall there you can access this switch to replace it,this switch is designed to shut off unit if lid is raised during spin cycle for your safety

Occasionally trunk lid won't lock on my a8 2006. When closing the lid is lifted a little on right hand side before falling into place. Even if I turn the central locking on the lid OFF it will open...

The locking mechanism either needs replacing or cleaning and lubricating but more often than not it's likely the striker pin needs readjusting to bring the lid fully shut.

Dryer will not start ,just a hum.

you either have a bad motor or something stuck in the blower the door remove the 4 screws to the left and right then take the front panel off. draw a picture or take a picture before you work on it so you remember how things go back together.
next to the upper left and right you will see 2 5/16 screws remove them and the lid should come up you can lean against the wall. try pushing the start button and turning the drum by hand will it start by doing this? and if you do not feel comfortable doing this just turn the drum without power and then push start to see if it was just bound up by something. try this then let me know. if you have to bump start it then you need a motor. if you get it turning and you hear that it just doesnt sound right then you may have something in the blower wheel.

If this is a top load model, the back panel does not come off. The whole case comes off. But your problem is either the motor coupler has broken (inexpensive fix), or the transmission gave out. More than likely it is the motor coupler. Disconnect the hoses, unplug it, and pull it away from the wall about 3 feet. To remove the case, you take 2 screws out of the control panel, slide it forward about a half inch or so and it will flip up on hinges. There are 2 clips to remove holding the case on. Unplug the lid switch, then the clips, and the case will lean forward and come right off. flip the control panel back in place and lean the machine against the wall, or lay it on it's back (better). 2 clips hold the pump on, remove them, then unplug the motor wires, then remove the 2 screws holding the motor clips on. Then remove the clips. The motor will all but fall off. You will see the motor coupler. More than likely the pins have broken, or one half has split in 2 pieces.

It does not stand up straight

the plastic locking mechanism to keep it upright is broken. It can be fixed, but not sure it is worth fixing. I know its a pain to lean it up against the wall all the time, but the cost for replacing the part is not worth the expense in my opinion. Good luck!

Top load washer spin cycle not working sound but no action

There's a good chance that it's something as simple as the drive belt having come off.

Disconnect the power and pull the machine away from the wall a bit then tip it back a little (judge "a bit" and "a little" so the top of the machine leans against the wall without risk of it falling in either direction) and have a little peek underneath without putting your head in harm's way.

If the belt is off, you're best to replace it with a new one. Prop the front of the machine up with something secure before you try to manhandle the new belt into position.
