I have a roper washer and the lid lock light started blinking and wouldn't complete cycle. I purchased a new lock mechanism and the new mech won't allow the lid to close
JA: What's the make and model of your washing machine? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

If you replaced the lid lock but its still not locking or working properly then the lock circuit on the main board has failed so the board will have to be replaced pretty common with those models. The replacement board is listed below:

you can likely find one cheaper on ebay or amazon, if you want to shop around for a better price just visit those sites and enter the part number in the search on those sites.
