hello, my washer machine just stopped working right after the rinse cycle and now won't do anything at all. Won't agitate or drain. think it might be the lid switch just going off what the simpler problems could be and after taking shell off and checking lid switch i noticed that it was pretty hard to get the harness off to disconnect it, and then when i did the middle receptacle was burnt up and disfigured now. i checked inside the switch and the metal connection in there was burnt up too. i just ordered a new switch and don't know what to do about the harness. might be able to connect new switch to it but worried same thing will happen again. what steps should i take? Thanks for the help

Mike for Model Number LSW9700PQ2

ANSWER Mike, If there's enough damage , you may have to replace the wiring harness 3957275, but if it's necessary, you can order the plasic connector housing [2172937], The pins (if necesary) and repair the harness wires as necessary. You're going to need to run a voltage check and make sure the line voltage doesn't drop below 108 VAC when the motor starts in the spin cycle, with a tub full of water. and check the connections at the timer and the motor, make sure there aren't any loose or corroded terminals.
