My 20 year old frigidaire stackable washer needed the lid switch replaced so it would trigger the spin cycle

My Repair & Advice
I unplugged the power source to the appliance. I unscrewed 2 screws and unplugged the lid switch.
I replaced the old switch with the new switch and screwed in the same 2 screws that held the old
switch in place and plugged the new lid switch back in under the lid. that's it . I plugged in the washer
and started a load of clothes. works just fine. NO HUGE REPAIR BILL. Gosh it makes me happy to
do such a simple repair to my old machine and for a very reasonable part price, my washer is running like new! thank you also for having such a user friendly web site.
p.s the time before the lid switch, I ordered a belt for the old washer from appliance pros and between the new belt and the lid switch the machine is spinning like a new washer. I'm a grandma who is delighted to be my own repair gal. such a savings!
