We have to slam the lid down hard several times before the machine starts , is that a lid switch problem.
Yes, the lid switch would be the first thing to check but also check the hinge on the lid to see if it is loose and not making contact with the switch.
The washer will fill up with water but will not wash or agitate, rinse, or spin?
Answer Hello James. You will need to check the lid switch assembly and see if it is bad and needs to be replaced on the unit. 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
