I got the new timer & installed it...still not spinning until I open the lid. Any plan B?
When you open the lid, or when you open and then close the lid?
I think AJ was thinking it started spinning after you open and then closed the lid again as was I when I first read your post.
If in fact the washer starts spinning when you open the lid, so it's spinning with the lid open then you have a bad lid switch.
