It would not harm the washer to leave it jumped out but it could pose a problem for unattended children. I had to take momma to the hospital by the way. Just now got back. They gave her an epidural to relieve a pinched nerve. Sorry I couldn't get right back to ya. At least you can do some clothes. Just keep the children and any braindead folk away from the washer till you change that lid switch.
May the hinges of our friendship
never grow rusty.
