Your lid switch has failed, can you get me the full model number? I will get the information for you, thanks, Bryan
where is the model number?
Okay after some research I think this is it, I think the 5 is in S this is the closest model I can come up with, TAWS800JQ1 at any rate I think about it now this is the lint switch, these are plastic and they break, there is a post on the lid the goes through a hole in the top of the washer that's with the lid switch is, actually you could do a little test, take a pencil put this in spin and make sure the knobs pulled out on the timer and try pushing the switch down with the pencil see if it starts spinning at all, sometimes this which will break in will be hanging down to far for the post on the lid to hit it, but even if it doesn't start the lid switch is still the problem it's just broke inside, you can order this at the blue link I'm providing, http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Lid-Switch-Assembly/547225?modelNumber=TAWS800JQ1 the best way to replace this is to remove the cabinet which is simpler than it sounds, this link will take you to a video that shows you how to do this, once you have the cabinet off you can get the lid switch out and put the new one in because it comes right off with the cabinet so you can display the cabinet down remove the switch and put the new one in, thanks and well wishes, Bryan
