Fixed my MIL's washing machine - price = free
« on: July 20, 2013, 08:15:13 AM »
The lid switch on my MIL's washing machine stopped working.  A quick You Tube search and I found a way to bypass the switch.

If she decides she wants the switch replaced in the future, I've already learned how to do that.

I did the bypass on mine as well, but the actual part and fix was so easy, I went ahead and fixed it proper. It's handy to be able to stop the cycle by leaving the lid open, and I presume somehow safer.

This is my plan next time we visit.  It failed our last day there, so bypass was the only option.
