My washer stopped after filling with rinse water. I could not get it to drain so I bailed water. I had someone look at it and they said I needed a lid switch but it has not worked for a couple of years the I haven't had any trouble with it not washing, etc. it would just not stop when the lid was opened. He did some checking and then said that it was the timer then. I went ahead and ordered a lid switch, since I knew it didn't work properly, and also a timer. I replaced both parts but then I could get the washer to fill but then it wouldn't start washing. I turned the dial that selects which cycle to use, re: regular, hand wash, delicate, etc. to various places and could not get is to start. I got frustrated and slammed the lid and it started washing. Could there be a short in the new lid switch or the wiring harness? Does the ATC switch/temp or the water level selector have anything to do with the washer not starting after it fills? I pulled the cabinet off the washer and checked the pump and hoses to see if anything had gotten sucked into them when the washer drained but they were all clear. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.

Check for loose screws on the left side lid hinge. A lever on the hinge activates the lid switch. If that isn't the problem, it may be the water level pressure switch. Power for agitation is through that switch once proper water level is reached.

I checked the 4 little screws on my washer lid last night. They were a little lose so I tightened them. I put the water level on extra small just in case I had to bail water again. The washer started right off and ran the whole cycle without a hitch. I decided to put my old timer back on to see if it would work with it. IT DID!!! Thank you very much! I will be sending the new timer back. You all are wonderful! You have my business and I will recommend you to anyone else I know if they are ever having appliance problems!
