My washer red light keeps flashing and the door lid will not close and lock.
Answer Hello Willie. It sounds like the lock assembly W10404050 is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
My Kenmore washer will not do anything, no lights no sounds no nothing. Checked the power outlet, it has 120v.If the lid lock switch goes bad would I get the symptoms im getting now. need help. thanks
You will want to access the control board in the control panel and check for voltage at the power cord at the control board. If there is 120 vac at this point then the control board is most likely the cause for the failure. The part number of the control board is W10480184.
What is the part # for the lid lock on a MVWC200BW0?
Answer Hello Bassfisher. The latch assembly for your model is part# W10404050
Put in new control panel and started to calibrate it and the washer started filling with water and wouldn't do anything else.
It sounds like the calibration cycle may have been interrupted or there is another issue with the unit. You will want to try to put through another calibration and if it does the same thing then check the door switch to make sure that it is working properly.
I've replaced the lid lock assembly but the lid still does not lock.
Answer Hello Fred,
If replacing the lid lock assembly does not get it going, the control W10393444 will be the issue.
I have a whirlpool washer, when started is senses then the lid lock light flashes and it stops the process then after about ten mins it starts filling with water like it should. then it stops on the spin cycle and wont do anything. so i push the start button and the lid locks then the lid lock light flashes and you can hear the drain pump kick on and drain, but it will not spin and the lid lock light continues to flash and nothing happens.What is the problem?
This issue sounds like it could be caused by a faulty latch assembly. Even if the door latches the unit is not see that it is and this could be a faulty enable switch in the latch. The best option would be to put the unit into a diagnostic mode per the tech sheet located in the control panel. Look for any stored error codes that would tell what may be causing the issue and follow the steps for testing that part, which would also be on the tech sheet.
