We had a wash load running in rinse cycle and the washer stopped working. The power is on but nothing happens when the start button is pressed.
Unplugged power and pressed the start button for 5 sec as suggested in different thread, still same issue

Appreciate any help
Thanks

There were some suggestion that there can be lid switch failure. Where can I find the lid switch on the washer? When I close the washer, I don't hear any other sound other that the door closing. When I press start it does make a sound as if something is locking, but doesn't start

Hi,

Does the door actually lock? Can you open the door after you hear that sound like its locking being made?

Here's the door switch for your model:

Here's the video that shows you how to replace it:

Hi Jake, Thanks for responding. I was not able to open the door once I hear the locking sound.
