Newbie here so I hope I'm posting in the right forum. I'm having some trouble with my washing machine. I have to slam the lid very hard several times to get it to turn on. Once it starts, it works just fine, but I have to put something heavy on top of the lid to keep it from turning off. Bad lid switch? I know it will get damaged if I keep slamming it, but I don't want to call a repairman if it is something simple. Anyone else has had this problem? Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Btw, my washing machine is a Maytag.
