How To: Repair a wash machine lid switch

Repair a wash machine lid switch

This Home and Garden video tutorial shows how to repair a wash machine lid switch. This video is on a GE Prodigy machine. Looking inside the machine under the switch, she finds that two wires are broken. Take a screwdriver and press down the clip of the switch from underneath. One end will come out. Then, pull out the switch. After that it is very simple. Cut off a bit of the plastic coating from the ends of the wires, connect them to the switch and put some electrical tape around them. Now you need to put the switch back in place, start the machine and check it out. You must unplug the machine before you undertake any repair on it. That applies to all electrical appliances.
