most likely you need a lid switch for this, does this agitate at all? Part 1468this lid switch has a fuse in it when the fuse blows this means the lid switch is bad. check that. its located in the control panel up top. thanks Bryan

It doesn't agitate at all.
Thought a fuse on the house maybe blown at first but that was good.
I tested all cycles with the lid closed none worked except the light did turn on
the soak cycle.
When I go home I'll chk switch, can u specify which corner please?
Expert:  Bryan replied 7 years ago.
ok take the screws out along the top of the control panel and tip the controls forward. you will see the switch in the middle.

Expert:  Bryan replied 7 years ago.
did you just change the fuse? when these fuses bolw it means the whole lid switch is bad and needs to be replaced, let me know thanks Bryan
