What is happening when it should be spinning?
Does it drain?
The flashing spin light means the lid lock was not recognized, so since you replaced it then the only 2 explanations left are a broken wire between it and the board or a bad board. So, check the wires and connections and you will know what to do next based on the result. I doubt you got a bad switch since the problem remains the same.
No, the motor would not run at all then. My answer is unchanged.
This washer does not use a magnet to actuate the latch because the lock mechanism locks it closed.
It is not recognizing the lid lock actions.
Buy the part from a place that allows returns like repairclinic.com. Sometimes something that should be 100% accurate is not for a variety of reasons- that is simply the way appliances can be. If everything were so easy then everyone would be fixing appliances.
There was nothing snide here, just a general remark that you obviously took the wrong way.
It's the electronic control board which is behind the slanted panel between the washer and dryer. It is the ONLY board on this.
That is the lid switch and you can easily test it by seeing if the circuit opens and closes as you lift the lid. The lid lock is the part you replaced.
That is the lid switch and I have hardly ever seen them fail.
part# ***** ***** WH12X10334 and you will NOT need it because the washer would not agitate if it were not working.
I will be away for a while, but I believe you now have the answers to everything you needed, so I would appreciate a rating for the help as that is the only way I get paid here. thanks
Don't replace anything until you have tested as I suggested and made sure that the part is indeed no good.
Did you see if you had continuity between the wiring to lid lock and to the control board?
