Maytag stopped after lifting lid
Maytag washer (MAV6257AWW -- probably 20 years old) won't start again after lifting the lid to add additional clothes. Took the lid off; I can work the lid switch (can hear it click) and am assuming that's the problem. Anything I can do to be certain? We're leaving on for a cruise tomorrow -- driving to the airport in about 29 hours for a flight to Mia ... gotta fix this in record time in the morning (9:35 pm here -- I'd do it now if I could find a part). Are there any good diagrams that would help me replace it (assuming that's it). Any way to by-pass the lid switch to finish this "load"? Gladly deal with it when we return; but there's stuff in there "she needs". Thanks in advance.

Thanks, but it's out ... it was pretty easy to access and remove. I'll get a replacement in the AM... hope that's it. Seems right.
