Flashing lid lock on Kenmore Washer
Here's another complaint about lid locks. You'd think with as many problems they have, they could engineer them better or just eliminate them!
I have a Kenmore 110.21102010 washer. Everything works normally until the basket tries to spin. Then the lid lock light starts flashing and the it sort of freezes up for about 4 minutes. The light goes out, I can press Pause/Start twice and it will continue with cycle until it comes to the next time it needs to spin. Same process. Doesn't affect filling, washing, or draining. Plus, when I restart it, it seems to do it's spin thing without freezing up. It's just when it comes to the next scheduled spin program.
Have tried to enter diagnostic code procedure as listed for other lid lock questions, but nothing. It won't go to the diagnostic program. Is this indicative of a failure in the control board? I'm guessing the problem is in either the control board or the lid lock mechinism itself. If you can't help me get to the diagnostic program, from these clues, which would you replace first?
