Learn how your appliance is supposed to operate so you can determine if it is malfunctioning.
The parts required depend on the type of switch installed in your washer. If you have an older machine, a 2-terminal microswitch is enclosed inside an actuator paddle. If your machine uses the old style microswitch, just it can be replaced. If your machine uses the newer style gray plastic switch assembly (Figure 5), it has to be replaced as a whole.
