How do I bypass damaged lid lock switch for a temporary test?
For model number 100.20022012
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.

I installed a new lid lock and the washer won't start,won't let water in and the lid lock button stays red all the time.What can i do?
For model number WTW5640XW0
Hi Rhonda, Thank you for your question. You may have a faulty lid switch. I would check it with a multimeter to see if it is working correctly. Also, try unplugging the washer for 10 minutes and this may reset the washer and clear the flashing light. If this does not work, press and hold the cycle signla button for 20 seconds and this should reset the washer and clear the flashing light. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

When I push the start button on my washer the sensing light comes on, then the lid lock lights up. The lid lock light is blinking and making a clicking noise and not latching. The washer will not start. Can you help?
Hello Kristy, Thanks for your question. This may be due to a defective lid lock/latch assembly. You could try testing the part with a multimeter to see if it has electrical continuity, and if it does not show continuity, replace it. I hope this helps.

My washer will fill, agitate and drain but will not spin. The lid lock light flashes when it tries to advance to spin. Initially it would spin occasionally while in a wash cycle but now not at all. During test mode it would spin without a problem, however it has stopped during test mode as well. The lid will lock during the lid lock test. I replaced the shift actuator but it did not resolve the problem. I am getting error codes f7e1 and f7e7. Can you help?
For model number WTW4800BQ1
Hello Melanie, Thanks for your question. The lid latch assembly is the most common reason why this issue would occur, and explains that error code. You may want to test the part with a multimeter and replace it if it shows no continuity. I hope this helps.

Will this part fix the following problem: I push the start button, it sounds like the lid latches, the fill light comes on and then there is a pause. The latch then unlatches but fill light stays on?
For model number WTW4800XQ1
Hello Fay, Thanks for your question. We would advise testing the machine in diagnostic mode to see if any error codes may help, but there are a few common parts we can recommend in this situation. The lid latch assembly should be tested with a multimeter to see if it has continuity. Replace it if it does not show continuity. You may also want to examine the shift actuator and agitator cogs to see if anything is damaged to prevent the machine from spinning. Look at the drive belt for any signs of damage as well. I hope this helps.

    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.

    Washer wouldn't start - Flashing Lid Light
    I checked out the reviews and the recommendation of these "professionals", replaced the part easy enough when it came in. However, it didn't solve the problem. Got an actual professional to come in and see what the problem was, and they determined that gear oil was being leaked and it wasn't worth replacing.

    Tried to get a refund and return the part. Was told absolutely not. The money back guarantee is a lie.

    Washer would go into the cycle to rinse dry.
    Replacing the part was fairly easy. However it did not resolve the problem. The spin cycle did not activate,leaving my washer full of water. We ordered another Maytag Washer. Hopefully this one doesn't break down for a long time.
