Another issue is that any wiring diagram or schematic is subject to copyright so no one should be publishing them on the Internet anyway. As far as I know there are no official repair manuals and schematics for UK washing machines and other appliances readily available.

These switches are costly and wear out easily. Presented here is a washing machine motor controller for single phase motors of washing machines that efficiently replaces its mechanical equivalent.
