If the lid lock light is flashing that means that when the lid is locked the electronic control board is not sensing that the lid is locked.

I recommend replacing the lid latch /lock assembly.

This is my first time using JustAnswer. Are there any other reasons the LidLock light would flash that would NOT indicate the Lid Lock has failed?
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 year ago

it is either the lid latch /lock switch or the lid lock circuit with in the electronic control board .

but the lid lock is what gets wear and tear from opening and closing all the time

Can it be bypassed to verify the failure of the part?
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 year ago

no it can not the lid latch assembly does more then one thing at a time and you would need to bypass several things at once to test the unit.

And i do not even recommend the by passing for experienced techs .

No go. Same happens.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 year ago

Replaced. Same issue happening.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The lid is physically locking, and was before, but the light still flashes.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Ran a diagnostic... f2e1 f7e1 f0e2 f5e1, then it flashes all 5 lights twice. Where the f number is ***** one when the sensing light blinks and the E number is ***** the sensing light doesn't blink.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 year ago

ok so if you have now replaced the lid switch and the lid lock light is flashing you have to have a faulty electronic control board with in the lid lock circuit.

Where it is not sensing that the lid is locked.

Because the blinking lid locked light is telling us the control is not seeing the lid as locked .
