How do you install a new latch in this paticular washer. Part number AP5263307
To install the new latch you will need to raise the main top. To do this you will release a spring clip on either side of the front between the main top and the front panel. You will also need to raise the console which you will use a flat blade on either side under the endcaps to release the spring clip. Lift the console. Disconnect the wiring of the latch and take the screws out of the old latch that are holding it in place. Install in reverse.
lid lock LED flashes as error code. Also had F7 E1 basket speed sensor fault and F7 E7 unable to reach target rpm fault. Cleared these and F7 E1 returned along with flashing lid lock LED. Replaced lid latch no change.
will bad shifter/speed sensor set lid latch code or is control board bad?
There is a check that you will want to do. Tilt the unit back and pull the cover off from the pulley. Check for the screw holding the pulley on is tight. If the screw or nut us loose then you will want to tighten back up but you will want to use loctite to help keep it in place. In the case where this happens the unit will still agitate but will have problems spinning.
Lid lock light flashing door seems to lock then unlocks will not spin now does it on all cycles.
Answer Hello Jim. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the latch W10404050 is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
I tried to start my washer I turned it on and the lid light and sensor light came on. The sensor started to sound then the lid light went out and the sensor light stayed on the washer stopped. That's all it does, I unplugged the washer for an hour thinking the timing was off and replugged it back in and tried to start the washer again same thing happened. Do you think it could be the lid switch that's not working? Please help me
Answer Hello Julia,
Did or do you not have any error/fail codes ? Check for a loose connection or loose wire terminal in the J15 connector of the wire harness, this is the lid switch / lock circuit to the control. There are other possibilities, and your best bet would be to use the tech data sheet, and conduct the diagnostics, automatic and manual test modes so you have a better idea of what the control is seeing or not seeing.
