Lid won't lock. Just clicks but never locks or starts. Found piece of clothing wrapped around lid latch and then stopped working.
With a piece of clothing wrapped around the lid latch and the latch assembly now not working, you will want to replace the latch as the internal gears seem to have been damaged.
How can you tell if the lid lock is bad?
To test the lid lock you will need to access the wiring diagram in the console of the unit and run the Lid lock test on page 9. If the lid lock test fails then you will need to check the lid lock mechanism for obstruction or binding. Repair that as necessary. Unplug the washer remove the console to access the main control board. Visually check that the J15 connector is inserted all the way into the main control. If the visual check passes then remove the connector from J15 main control board. With an ohmmeter, verify the lid lock resistance values across the following J15 connector pins:
Lock switch solenoid Resistance should be between 85-155 ohms measured between pins 1 and 3 of J15 connector
Lock switch If locked should be 0 ohms resistance and if unlocked should show open circuit measured between the J15 pin 3 to 4.
Lid switch Lid closed should read 0 ohms and lid open should show an open circuit from connector J15 pins 3 to 2.
