Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

This is a very common problem and it means that your lid switch has failed and will need to be ordered and replaced to fix the issue. Below is a link to a video that will show you how to take the outer shell of the washer off so that you can replace the lid switch assembly.

Can you give me a part number?
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 5 years ago.
I'll need the full model number first. It should be located on a tag under the lid near the hinges. It won't be on the lid itself but rather the top washer panel.
