ISSUE: Lid Lock Error = Fabric Softener L.E.D. on and the Spin and Wash lights flashing; the technician orders a Lid Lock Assembly, but when he goes to install it he finds the Lid Switch (reed switch) wires broken and not a faulty Lid Lock.
1). If the Lid Switch wires are broken "after" a cycle has been started, it will actually give the Lid Lock Broken error; which is the Fabric Softener L.E.D. on and the Spin and Wash lights flashing and not the Lid Switch open error; this is not covered in the Service Manual, Tech Sheet, or GE Training presentation.
2). If the Lid Switch wire/circuit is broken “before” a cycle is started, it will act as stated and the cycle "status light" will flash indicating the lid is open.
NOTE: Don’t forget; if you do not clear the error codes the unit will not work.
