Default Looking for a Kenmore lid switch

I have an older Kenmore All in One stacked washer/dryer unit. The lid switch for the washer is bad, and I am looking for a replacement. The label plate is worn, and I cannot make out one of the numbers, but from what I can read the model number is 417?89670800, with the ? replacing the unreadable number. There also appears to be a manufacture date of 1/88 on the plate, so the unit appears to be nearly 20 years old.

I would like to repair the unit if possible, as it still works well, but I am having trouble finding a replacement part without the complete model number. If anyone could help with the model, or part, number, I would appreciate it.

Is this it?

I think the '?' is a '.'

Sometimes a light sanding with emery cloth will make serial numbers show up better. It works especially well on air conditioner compressors where the numbers are all rusted up.

Have you tried looking at in the parts section? Sometimes you can find parts for older machines there. The usually have op, service & parts manuals/diagrams there too...

Also... sometimes they have been known to hide important paperwork that would ID the machine on the machine itself in some location that only service personnel would find.

I did check, and I couldn't find anything. The link that ToolGuy posted looks similar, but not quite the same.

I did find a tech sheet in a envelope inside the unit. The part number on the sheet was 144179-000, but I couldn't find that number referenced on either. The tech sheet had system schematics, but did not refer to the model number of the washer/dryer at all.
