DIY Washing Machine Repair

I had that problem, too. I managed to take the top off and find the switch. It had come loose from its mounting once before; the tech idiot had taped it in place with plastic electrical tape, which eventually stretched, releasing the switch once again. So I dug out my nylon tie-wraps to fasten it back, and I haven't had any problems since.
The hardest part was working in a room not much larger than the washer and dryer.
Be brave, and don't forget to unplug the washer.
