I have the same washer, WT-R801. Does the machine stop all together when the spin cycle arrives?, if so check the pump on the drain. Mine was burnt out. Its available for $61.00 delivered from Adelaide. Steve.

I don't know which switch lever you're talking about, but this is a common symptom of a lid switch malfunction. A lid switch is a very simple and inexpensive fix. The following link explains how to replace one:
In many cases a simple inspection of the lid switch is all it takes to fix it. It could be loose or not making proper contact. Check the mounting screws that hold the switch in place, first. If the screws are loose or missing, that may be all this required to get the switch to line up correctly with the lid strike (if equipped). NOTE: Some washers have a lid switch that is located under the washer rim near the left or right lid hinge. The lid strike is a small plastic piece that is physically mounted to the washer lid. The strike activates the switch through a slot as the lid closes. If the lid strike is broken or missing, this will also cause the same symptoms. If your washer has the other type of lid switch that I described, you can sometimes adjust the hinge rod that activates it by bending it slightly.
You can find replacement parts at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in the model number and you can usually locate what you need under the "Top and Cabinet" heading. The part number for the lid switch on the washer model you have this listed under is 3949247. It is listed as item number 11 and costs about $35. The lid strike will be listed as part number 358684 which is item number 20. It costs about $5. So, if both parts are required, you're looking at about $40 in repair costs if you do it yourself. A rather inexpensive fix, for what may appear to be a big problem.
I hope you find this information helpful. If you still have questions, please post back so I will be able to assist you further.
