Broken switch on top loader

The gray colored switched fell off (it appears to be intact and not broken). Is it possible and or hard to put back on? It has one spring in the middle.
On a side note: The clothes are still in the washer and they have been sitting in water for more than a day. What should I do?

Why my car wont go into gaer when i start it

Many of these require that you apply brake n order to put it into gear. Fuse probably is in circuit for brake pedal to let control unit know you have foot on brake. It is likely that the in-line fuse holder has broken (quite common) and thus the fuse fell out. Remove any under dash panels as needed to be able to see into this area, and you should find a wire with a part of broken fuse holder attached. Find the two ends and splice in a new fuse holder and fuse=fixed!

Phillips PET 706 portable DVD player. Won't play DVD's.

1. The pin, right side in the back of the dvd-tray-lid, which triggers the switch on the motherboard of the dvd player is broken.

2. Not impossible, but unlikely: the proper switch on the motherboard is broken, corroded or just full of dust and does not close the circuit.

Solution to 1.: you need a new lid with intact pin, or glue an improvised pin on place of the broken one.

Solution to 2.: take the whole player apart (not difficult at all), while not disconnecting any cables, so you can now test the trigger switch (momentary switch) manually and see if something happens (on screen appears loading)
ATTENTION: BEFORE pressing the SWITCH: cover the laser lens with a piece of paper - do not look into it - it can damage your eyes!!!
If nothing happens by manually triggering, try to spray some electronic cleaner (fat and oil free) into that switch, while pressing it continously. If still nothing happens, disconnect battery, DC, de-solder that switch and look at or any other electronic parts dealer to get a MOMENTARY switch with exact identical dimensions, etc.
Solder it in, everything should be perfect now.
Good Luck

Model 110.82873120 won't spin on spin cycle

Check to make sure your lid switch is functioning. On your washer, the lid switch is located on the right hand side under the washer casing. As you lift the lid and close it, you should hear the switch clicking. If not, the switch may be broken, it may have come loose and is not making contact with the lid actuator, or the actuator itself may be broken. You can view a drawing of your lid swtich at Just look under the "Top and Cabinet" heading for item 11. The actuator (item 12) is what actually makes contact with the switch and toggles the push button. Make sure it is intact.

If the switch toggles, a resistance check with the power removed will tell you if the switch is still good. You should get 0 ohms with the push button closed (switch pushed in) and an open with the switch open (switch out). I'm trying to rule out the possibility of a bad timer by having you check the switch and actuator first. This is usually the more common fail item on top loaders experiencing a no spin problem. If you need to access the switch, you will need to remove the exterior case, by performing the steps outlined in the following link:

Your configuration may differ slightly from these instructions, but the assembly/disassembly of the washer casing should be the same. If you have any questions, or if your symptoms differ from what I have described here, please let me know so that I may assist you better. I hope this helps you.

Broken battery compartment door switch

The switch is a micro switch that is depressed(and not sad :)) by a plastic tag moulded on the battery cover. Once the cover is moved into position and closed, the tag presses on the micro switch closing the switch and thus removing the error message. As with any switch, a switch is simply open or closed, Open = high resistance or O/L, while closed = 0 ohms reistance. You can use a small wire to overcome the switch by soldering the wire to both tags of the switch so it is permenantly 0 ohms. This will send a message to the microprocessor that cover is closed and camera ready for use. Hope this helps.
