I would start by checking the lid switch.

How?
(Don't know if this makes a difference: The unit had started and filled, then stopped.)

Thanx

The lid switch assembly is located inside the console. It consists of two micro switches and a fuse. You can do a continuity check on each component. If any of the three is bad, it is generally recommended that you replace the entire assembly.

Used a Continuity Tester:
- fuse indicated continuity both manual inspection and via tester
- black microswitch showed continuity red-black with lid down, and none when lid was open
- white microswitch showed continuity yellow-red, but not yellow-white and not white-red. Lid position made no difference.

Please do your magic and translate the above. I don't know if all terminal points tested should have shown continuity, or these results show the white microswitch is bad?

What next? (gonna run out of cean clothes real soon :-)

Thanx a 'load'.

I realized that I posted this thread in the General Talk, not in the Washer Repair. If it should be relocated, please free to do so. Sorry about that.
