Recently developed a leak in my washer. Removed the cabinet to determine leak location / not sure if hoses or pump .
Turned out to be pump. While I had the cabinet off I jumpered the lid switch to drain the washer / DOH.
I'm not certain / did not have my old man glasses on + I'm color blind / great combination for electrical trouble shooting hey ! / Not blind just don't see some shades of green + reds normal. Good with electronics at least historically ! Anyway at this point the timer would not activate the pump + motor to drain the washer.
Question is IF I did short the lid switch to ground Is the timer that sensitive that I fried it or is there a fused circuit to save my poor behind?
I have the tech sheet showing how to test the pins on the switch , have not pulled yet to do so / just thought I would get a proffesional opinion as to if I'm a dunce or not ! Is there an easy way to test that switches functionality / is that even a word ??? will have to look in Funk + Wagnells ?
Anyway thank you in advance for your assistance,
