I was able to diagnose the problem because I saw the broken part hanging down, and after I called an appliance repair company and described the issue, I was quoted $280.00! I'm a newbie handi-woman, so I really appreciated the video that was posted on the web page along with the lid switch part information. I placed my laptop nearby, got my tools out and watched, paused and performed the steps. Make sure you leave yourself enough time to clean out underneath and around the washing machine after you remove the washing machine cabinet, because if you're a clean freak like me, after 16 years, a lot of muck had accumulated. The repair was easy enough, I probably had the most difficulty with lining up and reattaching the cabinet back to the washing machine body. Overall, a good do-it-yourself project, and I am thankful to for the awesome service and great repair video they had available.
