Fuse in washer blows every time lid is opened. Washer works fine after fuse is replaced until lid is opened again. Which part(s) would you recommend?

Tami for model number LAT8434AAE

Hi Tami, Thank you for your inquiry. It is not the fuse that is causing the issue. The fuse is connected to the lid switch which, in turn, tells the washer whether the lid is open or closed. The switch is designed to intentionally blow the fuse if it is not working properly so that the washer won't run with the lid open. One of the contacts in the switch may be stuck or malfunctioning.It is the lid switch. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Washing machine does not respond to control as normal. When you pull the control to start filling and setting time/cycle, nothing happens. No water starts flowing to fill cylinder, etc. Circuit breaker is fine, and dryer works. Lid switch appears to be fine, but hard to verify when machine isn't responding. Thanks in advance for your help.

Kenneth for model number LA5591XPW4

Hi Kenneth, Thank you for your inquiry. I would suggest testing your water inlet valve with a multi-meter to see if that part is malfunctioning. I hope this helps. Good luck with your repair.

My washer will fill but doesn't agitate spin or drain. I have checked the switch assembly in the control panel with ohm meter and have continuity in fuse, lid check switch. The lid switch makes a clicking sound and seems to start and stop timer. The timer ticks though out cycle and then stops at end of cycle with no action. The motor never engages or spins or hums or anything. What do you think is wrong and where should i start troubleshooting?

John for model number LAT9304AAE

Hi John, Thank you for your inquiry. Your appliance does have another lid switch and a lid check switch. I would suggest checking both of those parts as well. It seems like it is likely a lid switch issue although if all of those parts check out alright, it may be your timer that is the issue. Good luck with your repair.


I'm not sure what is the problem: The machine turns on, and will do what it is set to do, but will not move to the next job. It sat with the water in it until i moved it to drain, then sat until i moved the dial to spin, then spun until i forced it to fill...then spun again until i moved it a little further. the site says that it is the door switch, but i am not certain. can you help?

Wendy for model number A310

Hi Wendy, Thank you for your question. I would suggest testing your door switch but also testing the timer of your appliance. You should be able to test both parts with a multi-meter. Good luck with your repair.
