amana Lid lock ntw4630yq0
« on: April 07, 2013, 05:49:07 PM »
I have anamana ntw4630yq0 top load washer.  >:(

Its so computerized I just hate it.   >:( >:( >:(

First im not washing clothing, im washing herbs for medicinal use (Herbal tincture) so there is no danger im going to get killed,
please do help me if you can as I just spent $400 and drove over 100 miles (Mountain guy)

I remove the lid lock thinking I had it figured out and spliced it and now it wont do anything.

The lid lock is wrecked,  I just want to find the wiring so I can bypass the lid lock.

And im not washing clothing, so the top needs to be open so I can do my work.

Any one help?  I want to toss this thing in the dump.

I think the easiest way to do this is to remove the strike from the lid and plug it into the latch. The blue wire to the white wire is a closed lid switch.  But if you leave those wires connected, it will probably throw a code because the control will never sense an open lid. If you pop the top, you should find the tech sheet.  I can attach it, if it's not there.

I managed to get it working by making two groups of the wires and moving the red wire over when it starts then back when it locks.
I guess I will buy a 4 group switch or replace the broken lid switch.

Can you attach the data sheet?  I wonder if a   mortal like me will understand it.

Either way it works but its freaky,

Also I cant stand machines that are "Smart" or cars that are smart. 

Hay thanks!

I can only assume I cant just disable the computers and install a simple on and off switch for the agitator and also one for the pump?

  The back and forth agitation motion is not accomplished via the transmission, the power to the motor is constantly switched by the control board to repeatedly change motor rotor direction of rotation.
