I have a Kenmore washer. It has a new lid lock switch. It holds the lid there but there is still some play. Does not pull the lid tight. Could you tell me the problem? Thanks
Answer Hello Anthony,
If the lid lock assembly is properly installed and the hinge screws are tight, there is probably not an issue since the lid lock is not designed to prevent the lid from moving. Its' only purpose is to prevent the lid from being opened.
My washer door will not unlock.
Answer Hello Jamie. Unplug the unit for about 30 minutes and then reapply power and see if the unit unlocks. If not, then either the control board or the lock assembly is bad. If you hear it trying to unlock, but does not, replace the lock assembly. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.
