Have you tried to bend the rod on the door hinge to make it have better contact?
Yeah I bent the rod in several directions to help it contact the switch/lever better. That's how I got it to the point where it will work if you slam the lid down, before that it wouldn't work at all.
Basically I bent it back the way it was supposed to be as good as I can get it, but am not happy that I have to slam it down to use the washer

The other two questions were...How much would be the approximate cost of labor?
In your opinion, is it worth fixing the stackable washer dryer from 2003.
In your opinion, is it worth fixing it or buying a new washer and dryer?
Okay...thanks for your opinion. That's it!
Alright...belated response here
I dissembled the unit myself to see the root cause of the problem. When a significant force was applied to the lid it caused the spring and a screw to come out of alignment, causing the counter arm to come out of alignment.
I fixed the screw that was out of alignment...However there is a spring that is connected to the counter arm as well, that I need to reattach. I forgot the specific attachment point for the spring
Do you have a diagram?
is their a website you can direct me to for the diagram?
I fixed the control arm and spring. I figured out the spring went back in.
Now my questions is
Is the auto washer motor supposed to be oscillating back and forth?
The link above shows what I am talking about. The motor mount, part 38, appears to be on runners and is moving back and forth. Is this normal?
How much is it supposed to move?
I will give you a bonus for the extra questions tonight. I really appreciate your help and honesty.
For another bonus, I have a video of the tub during the spin cycle and the motor moving back and forth on the runners...can you tell me if anything is wrong
Let me look at it
There is nothing there, I don't have an account there.. you need to put it on you tube..
should the tub wobble like that during the spin cycle
What about this video..this appears to be the worst case scenario..I am washing a heavy rug
There is no rush to answering this additional video..you don't have to answer it right away in the morning or anything.
