Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to helping you! Does it fill on wash at all, hot or cold? Any humming noise when it should be filling? Do you have a meter to test voltage with?

Expert:  Kelly replied 3 years ago.
Okay, and if you put it on spin, the tub will spin?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I have not tried it on spin and at the moment the washer is in parts.

have taken it apart to test the water level (load size) part

Expert:  Kelly replied 3 years ago.
Okay, if you raise and lower the lid, do you hear the switch clicking?
Customer: replied 3 years 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 3 years 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 3 years 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 3 years 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 3 years 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 3 years ago.
Okay, can you test the lid switch with the meter?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

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

It is still connected to the power

Expert:  Kelly replied 3 years 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.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Not very good with computers also.

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

No reading on green and gray

Expert:  Kelly replied 3 years 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 3 years 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 3 years ago.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
