I went through the diagnostic mode and had codes F7 E1 and F7 E7 but when you run the self test it will go for a little while and the lid lock light will start blinking and shut down. I replaced the lid lock and ran the auto and manual test, ran fine cleared the codes. Now couple days later same thing start it up to run a wash cycle will work for a couple minutes and the lid lock light starts to blink, it's still locked. have to unplug it to unlock an I get the same codes but no codes on the lock mech.

what are those codes for? Lid lock light blinking is normally a problem with the speed sensor/shift motor

F7 E1 is the basket speed sense fault-- it throws that code anytime the basket isn't moving (when it should be) for whatever reason. F7 E7 isn't even in the Job Aid. Are you sure about that code?

from job aid W10240504 Rev # B :ermm:
F7 E1 BASKET SPEED SENSOR FAULT
Fault is displayed when the main control cannot determine speed of basket, or speed changes too quickly.
• Locked rotor—check that basket, impeller, and motor can rotate freely.
• Check harness connections from main control to motor and shifter.
• See TEST #3a: Drive System–Shifter, page 13

F7 E7 MOTOR UNABLE TO REACH TARGET RPM
Fault is displayed when basket speed sensor detects that target RPM was not reached.
• Mechanical friction on drive mechanism or basket (clothing between basket and tub).
• Weak motor or run capacitor, or no connection to run capacitor.
• Load off balance. Clothing should be distributed evenly when loading.
• See TEST #3b: Drive System–Motor, page 14

I had one of these yesterday with the kenmore name with those codes and it turned out to be burnt wiring underneath the tub where the red wires do the loop, one of the zip ties were too tight and chafed through the wires
