Hi Is this your washer just point at the lid switch

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
Its the washer and when them lid is closed it looks like there is no way it makes contack with the safety switch so it will spin. I don't know where you want me to point?
Expert:  John replied 8 years ago.
point at the top on the right where you say you poked at the lid switch.Let me know if you found it

I have no idea what you want me to do. Point at the top on the right????
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
It looks like there is a hole on the right rear side of the washer(as you face the washer). There are two screws just below the hole. On the lid there is a plastic thing which goes into the hole on the washer which I think activates the switch telling the washing machine the lid is closed so go a head and spin.

What does replacing the moter have to do with the safety switch to let it spin? It does every thing but spin out. I do not accept your answer
