Elite Oasis Washer Door Lock Question
« on: September 17, 2012, 01:54:57 PM »
Kenmore Elite Oasis HT Model 110.28087700

I am trying to understand just how this machine knows if the lid is closed or not.
I have been told it is done through the Door Lock Module but what I have not been able
to find out is just how the it does it. Is there a switch somewhere else like on something attached
to the lid itself?

I am asking this question because I got the Door Lock Fail code (well that and I could see the tab was physically broken) so I replaced
the Door Lock PN W10059230 but I am now getting a LID code. I am now wondering if there is a switch I am missing somewhere else
or if there is another part of the locking mechanism I am physically missing. I have gone over every connection and verified it was all done correctly.

Sometimes you have to put it thru diagnostics to get the code to clear.

I have done all the diagnostic test and cleared codes and all. What I am getting is the LID code.

What I am trying to find out is just how does the machine know that the lid is not closed.

I have looked all around the lid and the lid hinges and can not find any switches or wires leading to a switch. So what tells the machine the lid is closed?

I have replaced that part already. What I have not been able to find out is how does the machine know that the lid is or is not closed. I have taken the old door lock mechanism apart and could not see any way for it to know if the door is closed or not. I could see how it determines if the latch is extended into to the locked position or not. I can also see how it knows it is not able to lock because is blocking the lock tab but when it comes to determining the door position itself i can't see anything.
