I tried that but it didn't work.You can hear what sonds like a timer but nothing else .It doesn't drain or rinse or spin but ut will agitate.
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
i believe your lid switch is bad. the machine does agitate right? do you anything about how to jump switch to test ?let me know thanks Bryan
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
No I don't but am willing to try.
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
ok . is there two screws on top holding your control panel down? there should be one on each side of machine near bottom of control.? Bryan
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
I had to go to bed last night has to get up early. lift cover where you controls are after taking out screws.you never said whether you found screws or not. did you? you may have end caps that need to be removed to access screws or they may be in back on bottom.when you get it up you will see a plug with three wires take a piece of wire and strip it back about 3/8 " and put one in each side of plug thats the two outside wires. the center one is a ground . put machine in spin and see if it starts. unplug machine before putting wire in and tape to keep them from touching any metal. let me know if it does. thanks Bryan
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
do you still need my help with this? did you try jumping lid switch ? let me know Bryan
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I ended up bypassins the switch all together and it works now.Thank you very much
