Went to PartSelect with model number. Looked at other people's repairs, and PartSelect info (which said with the problems I had that it was likely a lid switch. Ordered it on 2 day shipping (got it a day earlier than I thought..since had ordered on a weekend) Took the back top casing off (5 screws in back) slid it out of way, without disconnecting anything. Took the lid off (there are spring clips about 2 inches in that need pried up in the space under the lid front) Put in a new plunger and located the switch. Got the old switch out, put the new one in (kind of tricky at first since there's a plastic kind of spring on the top back that holds it in place after putting the switch in the slots and pushing it gently back, so as not to crack that plastic spring). Put it back together. Turned it on. It's running right now. Took maybe 1/2 hour and saved me lots. I do heating and AC for a living, so it might take a very little longer for someone else...but it's a fairly easy repair. Fast shipping. No new washer now..like my wife had thought :-)
