Question: Does it matter which wire goes where on a light switch?

With a switch loop yes, it should. The hot wire should come down from the ceiling on the white wire and go back up on the black wire. Just think white down, black up. If you wired it the other way around, hot black down and hot white up, you have a problem.

Which wire is hot when both are same color?

In most modern fixtures the neutral wire will be white and the hot wire is red or black. In some types of fixtures, both wires will be the same color. In this case, the neutral wire is always identified by some means. In some cases, there will be small writing on the wiring case.

How do you know which wire is line or load?

Load Wire - Generally connected to the top half of your switch. If the wire is coming from the top of the switch box, it is likely your load wire. Line Wire - Generally connected to the bottom half of your switch. In some cases, line wires are marked with “line”, “pwr”, or a lightning bolt symbol.
