Kenmore Washer Error Codes

Kenmore Washer Error Code lid

Kenmore washers are known for their reliability and efficiency in handling your laundry needs. However, like any other appliance, they can encounter issues from time to time. One common problem you might face is the Kenmore Washer Error Code “Lid.” In this article, we will explore what this error code means and how you can effectively address it to keep your Kenmore washer running smoothly.

The “Lid” error code typically indicates that the washer’s lid is not closed when you press the START button. This safety feature is designed to ensure that the lid is securely closed before the washer can start a cycle. The error message may also appear if you’ve attempted to start more than two wash cycles without opening the lid in between.

If you encounter the “Lid” error code on your Kenmore washer, here’s what you can do to resolve it:

  1. Check the Lid: The first and most straightforward step is to check the lid of the washer. Ensure that it is securely closed. If it’s open, gently close it and attempt to start the wash cycle again.
  2. Open and Close the Lid: Sometimes, simply opening and closing the lid can help reset the sensor that detects its position. After doing this, try starting the cycle again. If the error persists, move on to the next step.
  3. Inspect the Lid Lock/Switch Sensor: If the error code continues to appear, it may be a sign that the lid lock/switch sensor is not correctly sensing the lid’s opening and closing. In such cases, you may need to replace this component.
