Why is my well pump kicking off?


I'm a senior and need a LOT of input please! I have a submersible pump. Within the last 2 weeks the pressure control switch has started kicking off and not coming back on with out my manually having to go out to the wellhouse and reset it. Interestingly enough, it is only doing this (well at this time) when I use the washing machine or try to water my garden. Do you think it's a faulty pressure gauge, pump or tank? I am prepared for the worst case scenario … just hope for the sake of cost it doesn't come to that. I will probably try to do some of the work myself. Thank you all who respond.
