Well I'm an idiot. They did say there was a fast wash, but it specified that it was for extra rinses to help people with detergent allergy etc., but did not give a time for the cycle. They should have said it was the short wash for everyone. I tried it, and it was fine. Thanks anyway. If I ever have a real problem, I'll be back.

SOURCE: Lid lock light beeping continuously and flashing

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question!!!!

Ihad the same problem. I cleaned out the blocked inlet to the pump and it now works fine. It would not pump out so would not start to spin until empty.

The lights are flashing but the machine is not starting


Model number would help. Sounds like lid is open or lid closed switch is faulty so control board thinks it is open.

Simpson ezi 950 9.5 will not empty, rinse, spin dry.


That sounds like the pump is jammed. Have you checked for hair slides or similar? Once the pump is free to operate, your Simpson should resume normal service.

Lid light beeping and flashing on our 6kg simpson swt605 ezi sensor and won't spin. Any ideas???


Thank you for your advice non3. We have an old Simpson SWT605 that had a similar issue. In our case the lid lock was working but the spin cycle wouldn't start. I followed your advice to take off the lid and have a look at the lid sensor. It turned out that the one of the contacts for the two white wires you mentioned had broken off so when the mechanical pin was coming out no contact was actually made.

I followed your advice and it is currently working (without the lid safety lock) but it will give us a few weeks to decide whether we get it fixed or just get a new unit.

I have a 5.5kg Simpson Ezi Sensor SWT552 Washing Machine. The lid locked light keeps flashing and the machine keeps beeping during the spin cycle - even though the lid it down properly. Could you please...


yes the safty door latch switch is eather loose or going bad. somewhere on your door there is a small sensor or switch that tells the washer the door is closed and its ok to spin, these washers put out alot of force when spinning and thats why the sensor is there it would be dangerous without them. when the washer goes in spin cycle there is more vibration than any other cycle. and thats whats making the sensor or switch wiggle and its getting an intermedate signal. it probily needs replaced these can commonly go bad due to wear buy slamming the door on the washer.. i hope this helps

There is a magnet in/under the lid on the left hand side inside a plastic housing. I also got a second hand machine in which the magnet had totally broken down due to corrosion. You can test if this is the problem by placing a magnet where this magnet would be positioned when lid closed. Replace magnet

Simpson ezi sensor 8.0 kg won't spin lid lock flashes and alarms


Hi
To solve the beeping and lid lock light flashing and the machine not doing a spin dry. Do the following.
I have a SIMPSON EZI SENSOR 8Kg top loader. This is what I did.
WARNING HIGH VOLTAGE. switch the power off and unplug the machine.
DO NOT do this if you are not familiar with working with high voltages.

To get access to the lid lock switch,
1. Remove 2 screws at the rear of the washer.
2. Remove 2 screws at the front of the machine located under the lid and covered by small round plastic plugs.
The top cover can now be raised gently from the front.
3. Remove the 2 screws that hold the lid switch.
4. Remove the clear plastic cover from the lid switch.
5. DANGER HIGH VOLTAGE ( Verify that power is off)
6. Find 2 blue wires these go to a magnetic reed switch (25mm long 3mm Diameter).
Cut the blue wires and discard the reed switch. insulate the ends of the blue wires and push them back into the track in different directions so there is no possibility that they can make contact with each other.
7. Find 2 white wires these go to a set of contacts that are mechanically closed by the solenoid.
8. Pull out the contacts and the 2 white wires.
9. Cut the white wires at the contacts, strip 5mm of plastic off the wires and twist them together, The wires will have corrosion, clean them with sand paper, they must make good contact. I recommend that you solder them together.
10. Insulate them and push them back into the track.
11.Reassemble starting with fitting the clear plastic cover.
Your good to go BUT BUT BUT,

WARNING
The Lid safety protecting during the spin dry cycle will no longer function,
So don't do this if you need the safety of the lid closed during the spin cycle.





Remove 2 screws at the back of the machine

Hi, my simpson eziset 550 washing machine wont start, I press power on then the start button and beeping alarm starts with the three water temp lights flashng, this has happened intermitantly in the past...


5 beeps with the 3 temp lights flashing means lids not closed. or lid switch not working

i just fixed this problem. the magnet in the lid had come loose. I undid the two screws on the side of the lid put the magnet back where it should sit then i poured candle wax over it to hold it in place and working fine now.
