Hello and thankyou for using this service!

I am sorry to hear about the problem you are having with your washer

Let's work together to find out what is wrong :)

It sounds like you have a bad lid lock. There is a test procedure you can run on the machine if you want to try that first. If you have not found the service booklet for your machine, it is located on the inside of the front of the washer. If you lift the top up on the machine, (watch video) it is taped to the inside on the left side. Inside you will find the test procedure to try if you do not want to just replace the lid lock.
