I am new to posting so please forgive any forum faux pas.  Started a wash, the washer filled and the wife thinks it was agitating.  She lifted the lid and since then the washer wont spin, drain, or buy me flowers anymore, but the dryer works.  Should I try and replace the lid switch assembly?  If so, what's the likelihood of that actually fixing it?  I don't want to get in over my head and would be happy pay a professional rip-off artist to fix it instead. Thanks.

If the lid switch is faulty, then the chances that replacing it would fix your problem is about 99.9%

As to your initial question, we "professional rip-off artists" would test the lid switch and replace it only if it is the source of your problem.

btw let me get this straight.. You come to a site ran by and supported by techs, seek free advice from said techs, ask these same such techs to forgive any faux pas you may or may not make, then in short order, intimate that techs are professional rip-off artists? If I summed this up correctly, wouldn't you agree that's either ballsy, highly insensitive, verging on complete and utter ignorance or all of the above?

I guess all of the above.  I meant to say that in the unlikely event that the tech I call charges me 5x what they should, after assuming correctly that I am ignorant, it would be better than my putting troops on the ground with no clear exit strategy.  While I am handy (recently replaced the control panel on my microwave, which was fairly simple and saved me $400) I also tend to forget that some problems are better left to professionals.  I have a multimeter but the washer is filled with water and in a closet.  Before I siphon out the water, pull it out and take it apart I was hoping for some assurance that it should be a slam dunk.  Not having my washer working for 2+ weeks because of a cavalier attitude might cost me more in the form of a divorce.  Call a tech?

Too bad I can't like Brother Durham's post more than once! Well said!
