Thanks for your answer. It is a washer/dryer combination. The lid switch assembly is an older one, brown box (the button appears to be stuck), red and white actuator (the part the lid should strike is broken off). I tried taping the button down to see if it would work but it hasn't yet. I don't have any way to get romex, can I strip any other type of wire, telephone, etc., to make a jumper? Do I use the wires that are going into the switch itself, or the ones in the front of the washer that are in plastic to put together? There are two areas, one in the front and in the back of the washer where the wires are in plastic. Still need to get it to drain somehow. Thanks again.
