Couldn't bring up the model but would love to see the lid switch assembly. I think I may know what the problem is. Can you post a photo?
Oh is that the lid switch that shuts off the washer when the lid is lifted? If so, I can take a picture of that. I did remove the lid assembly because I replaced the water inlet hose.
The washing machine is at my parent's house so I can take some pics in a few days. Is there something in particular I should look for when taking the pics??
As for not finding the model #, this model, #142 is fairly old. It was built in 1957 or 1956 but in the past, I was able to cross-reference the parts when I replaced the motor and water inlet valve. For instance, the water inlet valve is a 3-solenoid valve and apparently the Eaton equivalent is CW-26. But it's getting harder and harder to find parts....
