The lid switch is a crappy design on these washers.
If it was me I would use a putty knife between the top and front to get the front panel off the washer . I would then get the top off by removing the screws holding it down. Then I couls access the quick disconnect on the washers lid switch assembly. I would check the switch for continuity or simply jump out and bypass it altogether. For testing purposes only mind ye! Lest ye recieve a visit from the Ralph Nader police.

sound like the contact points on the timer are probebly dirty or arched to where they are not making good contact. you can take and clean them with a piece of emery cloth if you are mechanically inclined and can take the timer apart. Also there's a set of contacts down by the motor ti check too.

SOURCE: am trying to replace the belt on a hotpoint aquarius wf240 washing machine. I have removed the 2 bolts which appear to hold the motor in place ( 1 bolt on each side). However the motor still will not
Hi. The motor is non adjustable on this washer. Tilt washer forward, get someone to hold it steady, and put belt round motor pulley first, then slip belt on drum pulley, and slowly turn drum by hand, feeding the belt on as you turn drum, be careful not to trap fingers, as it is very tight, this is normal, as the belt is a stretch type, this is the reason the motor is non adjustable. Please rate my advice. Thanks.

SOURCE: Belt fitting on a Hotpoint WMA46
These belts are difficult to fit.
They appear to be too small, but they are in fact a stretch belt, so their is no adjustment provided on the motor itself.
The best way to do it is remove the back panel as you have done, remove the top cover also.
The with someone's assistance, tilt the washer away from you at the rear, getting someone to hold it for you.
Put the belt round the motor pulley first, and start feeding it round the drum pulley, slowing turning the pulley as you do so, the further you get it round, the tighter it will become.
Just keep going, and the belt will go on, watch you don't trap your fingers in the process. If it slips off, then start again.
Please rate my solution.
