First I removed the three torx screws holding the control panel in place. Once the electrical connections were accessible, I removed the electrical connections (2) and one small water hose from the control panel. Next, at my workbench, I removed the control assembly from the panel (three or four nutdriver type screws, and pried off the control knobs with a small screwdriver). I then removed the model selector electrical connector from that old control assembly and installed it onto the new. Next, I installed the control assembly onto the panel, replaced the control knobs, reconnected the electrical connectors and hose, and reinstalled the control panel. Tested machine, and it was working perfectly. Thanks again!
