First, reverse the washer and dryer plugs in the outlet.
If that works, then the outlet needs changed.
The light switch is hot wired to the light circuit. Which means, if the machine is plugged in, the light will work.
1.The cord is bad, and needs replaced.
2. The light switch, which also runs the circuit to the motor is bad.
To access the switch, remove the lint filter, remove the 2 screws under it, then with a screw driver, pry up the top lid, one side at a time.
Lift the lid, but do not go above vertical. You will see the switch, and how to remove it.
You will need a VOM meter to test these items.
As well, make sure the machine is unplugged.
The following clip, at the beginning will get you started if you have to access the switch.
