Okay, if you raise and lower the lid, do you hear the switch clicking?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

the lid is no longer attached, the washer is in parts or the cover has been pulled off, if you get what I men.

Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.
Okay, well the lid switch needs to close for anything to work. Is the lid switch still connected on the case? If so, raise and lower the lid, does it click?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

No the lid switch was disconnected when I took of the, I don't know what you call it,the covering of the washer. I did this in order to check the water level hose.


I assumed that was the problem, I guess not

Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.
Okay, can you test the lid switch for continuity, testing between the two gray wires with the lid in the closed position?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Kelly, I have pushed the cover back and connected the lid switch wire, there is on clicking bearing in mind that I have the load size meter out

Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.
Okay, can you test the lid switch with the meter?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I don't know ! do I unplug it again and test the terminal ?


It is still connected to the power

Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.
Unplug the lid switch connector and on the connector that is on the case, insert the two meter probes into the gray wires on the connectors. Turn the meter to the setting that says R x 1 and see if the needle moves or the display changes. Let me know what happens. The video below will help to test.

I tested the plugs I get a reading with brown and gray


No reading on green and gray

Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.
Okay, so the lid switch tests okay. Can you reinstall the pressure switch and then see if the machine will spin, please?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

That will take be a little time.


The machine does spin but there is no water hot or cold


I assume that to have it spin I will have to put it back to gether

Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.
