I have ordered the part already-but unclear how a the lid lock could be stopping it from finishing the cycle or draining properly?
Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today
Michael is correct in his diagnoses, the reason which I gather you really don't understand is if the lid locks (or even just one) fail or work intermittently the washer will not spin. (its a safety ) on some machines they don't have the lock but they have a lid switch which when you lift the lid stops the spin. same basically here. if the lock is not working it wont spin. this is so someone cant get their hand caught when its spinning (especially children) hope this helps explain why it doesn't spin with a bad switch.
Hi Bryan, thank you for your response and for drilling down on the lid lock malfunction & tying to the spin function. It was most perplexing that we weren't getting unbalanced load error or drain failure error. I am hopeful this lid lock resolves the issue, as it is getting rather tiresome draining a washer full of water while trouble shooting. You were more detailed than Michael in your explanation which was helpful.
Now, I don't see the smiley face option under your answer-just under Michael's. Where do I rate you for the payment?
