The lid latch is used on top load machines to lock the lid in place while the unit is running.

Failure Symptoms: When the lid latch fails the unit may not be able to fill, wash, drain, or spin.

How to Test: Use a multi-meter to test the latch for electrical continuity. If there is no continuity, replace the switch.

*Continuity is the presence of a complete path for current flow. A continuity test is a quick check to see if a circuit is open or closed. Only a closed, complete circuit (one that is switched ON) has continuity.

*Continuity testing should be attempted only when voltage is NOT present in the circuit being tested. Always unplug the device or turn off the main circuit breaker before attempting a continuity test. Ensure that all capacitors are safely discharged.

    This place is a low income person's Savior. Their prices are Considerably lower then competitors and service/delivery was great!! Was exactly what I ordered and identical to competitors product. Unfortunately didn't solve the issue with my machine however nothing to do with product I ordered, obviously wasn't the problem of cheap and easy fix I had hoped for. So search continues!! But will definitely order any future parts from Thrifty Appliance!! And definitely would recommend them to others.

  • Worked Great
