I think there are other issues....the servo actuator works but the cable is slack and only moves the lever a few milimeters. The thing agitates in short bursts instead of spinning. If I move the lever a bit more then something engages and it starts to spin but the motor is only running in short bursts and not a proper spin cycle..

I think the problem is in the lid switch assembly. The part number for the switch is(###) ###-#### ***** the price is $38.19.

The website is fine from my U.S. location.

Lid switch seems to be OK...I have placed an object in there to close the circuit......enables me to see what is going on with the rest of it.

From the photo of the actuator cover I see, it looks like you're able to disassemble it, and check the switch cams for proper function. If you need to replace them, they're also available at

I have disconnected the actuator from the lever and the chassis but it is still connected to the circuit. when the timer gets to "spin" the actuator winds the cable in 20mm. It has plenty of torque....
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
but as I said earlier, the cable is slack when installed and only gives about 5mm of actuation on lever.

If I move it further with tyre lever the bowl starts to spin but main motor is intermittent for entire spin cycle on timer.

it could be the motor control unit as you said but It seems odd that actuator cable is loose at the same time.
