    Default Roper Washer suddenly stopped agitating

    I bought this used Roper washer (I don`t have the exact model right this moment - it`s an older direct-drive model, bout 5-10 years old) and it worked 100% fine since I bought it. No weird noises, no issues, no loose parts, everything worked peachy.

    Last night I started a load and realized I had forgotten to drop a pair of socks in. The washer had already started agitating but it was just a pair of socks, so I opened the lid and dropped them in.

    Closed the lid. Nothing. What? So I cranked the dial all the way around to the beginning of the cycle. Nothing. No buzz like the motor is even trying.
    Turned it off, set the load size to Medium (it was at small) and it starts filling. Alrighty then. Surely it will start after this?

    Nope. Fills to the right depth and nothing. Water stops, no engine hum, doesn`t start the cycle. Basically it`s acting exactly as though the lid had never been closed after I had opened it at the start of the wash cycle so I personally suspect the lid switch. I'm not really any sort of appliance expert (I've repaired game consoles, phones and PCs before but never anything like this) so I would like some input before I open one of these for the first time.

    Hi,

    so I personally suspect the lid switch
    Certainly sounds like something happened to the lid switch when the lid was opened and closed.

    I don`t have the exact model right this moment
    Some model# helps...
