Lid lock quit working, replaced lid lock assembly, worked several days and quit working again. what could cause this.
Answer Appliance doctor,
The most likely cause for the lid lock failing in short time would be either the door lock latch jamming when the lock is locking or a faulty control board.
I push start and after the machine senses the load the lid lock light flashes. The lid is locked and the cycle stops and the light is continuously blinking. It will not do anything past this point.
This issue sounds like it would be caused by a lid latch assembly. 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.
