lm0494 :

hi thanks for choosing tihs service, does your washer have autosense for the fill?

Customer :

yes it does...if you mean I can set it to decide the load size. ( but it does not work on any of the settings - small, medium, large, or auto)

Customer :

hopefully I can do something to get it going....I have 5 young children and live in a remote area

lm0494 :

if you put it on large and try to hit start what does it do

Customer :

it beeps and the lights flash

lm0494 :

is it full of water?

Customer :

no....I had just put towels in to wash....it was working fine last evening....it would not start this morning

lm0494 :

sounds like possibly a bad lid switch

lm0494 :

but there is nothing you can do without replacing the switch

Customer :

so can I do anything

lm0494 :

if your good with wiring you could bypass it

lm0494 :

but this eliminates the saftey so if its in a spin cycle it wont stop by lifting lid can be dangerous

Customer :

so I guess I have to wait until I can get it serviced ( obviously they are closed today)

Customer :

I cannot wire things LOL

lm0494 :

oh ya thats the only way to bypass it, the new one will have to be wired

Customer :

the lid clicks when we open it up....

lm0494 :

its either lid switch or the motor

Customer :

great...guess I wait until service opens tomorrow ( they only come to my area once a week)

lm0494 :

wow sorry to hear

Customer :

thanks

lm0494 :

unfornately does sound broken no reset will work

Customer :

this washer is just over a year old....glad we got the extended warranty....we have had more trouble with it....Happy New Year

lm0494 :
