its called a lid lock; I'm a senior citizen; is it something easy to replace?
Expert:  Ezekiel replied 1 year ago.

actually you will need a technician as the top panel of the machine and the panel behind the controls must be removed to access the harness to disconnect the wire harness and screws along the way

Hello and thanks for using this service! If you are a JA Member I would like to personally thank you and welcome you back! I am Appliance Guru an extremely experienced tech on the site and I try to get to as many customers as I can.

Secondly, I do not know your skill level so please try and let me know if I am going beyond your knowledge or comfort zone thanks! I strive for a 5 star rating from everyone especially our JA members.

Answer:

If the door lock broke you may just need the actuator tab which is an easy replacement not the door lock itself, would you like the part number for that and try to fix that? You can also try to hold the START button down for 3 secs to reset the unit. Try that first as that would be an easy push button repair before calling a tech out.

All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am paid anything through the site and that will also get you a DIRECT LINK emailed to you to get back to me!.....tips are greatly appreciated so thank you very much for using this service. If you have any other questions just post back to me here anytime!

Expert:  Ezekiel replied 1 year ago.

Hi there,

I was just touching base with you because I have not heard back from you and the question is still open and unrated, I am not credited anything until a good star rating is supplied thank you.
