Can anyone help me find out where I can purchase a replacement on/off switch for our Bosch WFK 2401 washing machine and tell me how I find out how to install it. The problem is that the switch will not stay on (it trips off immediately or after a short while). My wife has taken to jamming it in to keep it on (using a hair grip!), but I think this is risky in case the switch is tripping for a real reason. Mind you, the machine runs perfectly when the switch is held in.
