Machine fills up with water will not go through cycle. Is lid switch bad?
Answer Hello Steve, You will need to test the lid switch and see if it is bad and needs to be replaced on the unit. If it is bad, it can prevent the unit from running and spinning. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
