ok if the lid is in fact locked but the lid lock light is flashing that means that the control board does not recognize it as locked.

Which means you have a lid lock /latch switch that needs to be replaced.

I have seen on Google sometimes it is the actuator switch. Could that be?
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Some have replaced the lock switch and it does not fix the problem.
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Are you there?
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 9 months ago

not if the lid lock light is blinking.

I`m assuming you power it up and select a cycle and press start all it does is lock and then the lid lock light just blinks correct?

Customer reply replied 9 months ago
That is correct . I did enter it into diagnostic mode , but I could not understand the codes.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 9 months ago

what where the codes that you were getting?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Just blinking LED lights on the front panel. All 5 lights were blinking green, plus the lid locked was flashing red
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Please respond, if possible.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 9 months ago

ok all the lights blinking was NOT an error code .

After you had all the lights blinking you needed to press Start until the DONE light was lite then press Start again then you will get the error code or codes

Ok, Done flashes, then Sensing and Spin flash once together
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 9 months ago

ok that would be an F2 now you should have a second set of lights also.

Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Flashing Sensing and Spin, then one flash on Done, then back to Sensing and Spin... Plus lid locked is flashing the whole time.
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
F2 plus E1?
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 9 months ago

yes that would be correct.

And that error code is a One or more keys on the User Interface were actuated for 15 consecutive .

Are you able to press all of the buttons and have the light lite up above that button?

Customer reply replied 9 months ago
I give up... Just order the lid switch??
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 9 months ago

yes it could have been that you laid some thing on top of the unit and it was pressing a button .

The unit holds the codes in unless you unplug it for over 5 minutes.

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
is chat there?
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 8 months ago

Sorry I do not work on Sundays!

Ok so you had the original issue where the unit would not start just the lid lock light blinked!

You have now replaced the lid latch /lock switch ,and the unit now runs but it does not stop at the end of that cycle it starts the cycle all over again .

If this is not correct let me know!

And if it is correct the only thing that controls the on /off of the unit is the electronic control board.

Let`s first unplug the washer for over 5 minutes and then plug it back in and run the unit in any cycle to see if it still does this (never stopping issue) . let me know .
