Question:

How do I bypass damaged lid lock switch for a temporary test?

Ronald for model number 100.20022012
Answer:

Hi Ronald, Thank you for your question. First and foremost disconnect your water and the power from your appliance before starting. Locate where your switch actually fits on to your appliance and place a magnet between them. Now there will be a magnetic connection between the lid switch and solenoid. After you do that, put the lid of the washer back on and turn on the appliance. If the appliance turns off, disconnect power once more and reposition the magnet. Caution. If you are at all uncomfortable with doing something like this, I would strongly suggest contacting a repair technician to come and help you. I hope this helps. Good luck with your repair.

Defective lid latch - cabrio washer

The instructions that came with the part were worthless. Essentially, unplug, put in new part, plug it back in. I spent a considerable amount of time on the internet and finally found a video showing how to open the top. Unlike other models, it is held down by clamps in the back rather than clips in the front. Once finding this information the installation was simple. Remove the clamps and the back of the console, slide the top forward and lift, remove and replace the lock and reassemble. You don't even have to remove the hoses.
