I'm doubtful that it's the lid switch. In fairness, I forgot to mention that there was also water leaking - about a quart or so, not a flood. Could it be a transmission part?

Expert:  John replied 1 year ago.
The water pump could be leaking , tip the washer back and look at the pump its just under the front of the washer.
To make sure its not the lid switch try by passing the switch to see if that works please .
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

No leak from the pump. Everything looks fine underneath. How do I bypass the switch?

Expert:  John replied 1 year ago.
You will see a screw at each front corner on the console , remove the two screws and lift the console from the front and flip it to the back, the lid switch connects at the top from the timer , disconnect the plastic connector and join the two outside wires together this will bypass the switch.
as far as the leak if its not from the pump check the water valve at the rear right side of washer .
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Somehow, everything we have tested is now working. There is just one other issue - no mater where I set the Hot/Cold water setting, all I get is hot water. Any thoughts?

Expert:  John replied 1 year ago.
The hoses could be reversed at the hot and cold water taps.
try reversing the two hoses see if that does the trick .
