i have a Centennial model #mvwc200xwo and the lid lock will not stop blinking i have replaced the lid lock and sensing unit and the sensing now workes but all the lock does is tick
Appliance Technician: Appliance Tech Larry, Home Appliance tech replied 5 years ago
why relist, we went over all this and the new lid switch is bad, replace it at no charge, i have gotten new parts a lot of times that was bad when i got them, the only other thing would be the control board but i would replace the switch before the board, the board cost about $130 and its part number W10296058 so is there anything else i can help with today
