So on Thanksgiving Thursday, my washing machine stopped starting. Well, you know it would run water in but then just sit there. I knew my lid switch was getting worn out-I had to press hard on the lid in just the right place to make it work...but now it was a goner.
So I Googled, "How to fix washing machine lid switch" and it seems this is a common problem. And that almost all brands of top loaders-especially those who have an almost vintage age-use the same switch set up. I chose a few youtube videos to see how they took the thing apart.
So the part came today!It was almost just like the original, except it had a longer cord protector piece of plastic covering-I had to cut that off-see it has a slit all the way down the hard plastic so I pulled out the wires and chopped that excess plastic off. Now it will fit around the corner of the washer.
There! All cleaned up and re assembled! And a test batch ready to go....
