Diagnosed using a screw driver pushing down on the lid switch. The machine would start if the switch was pushed farther than depressed by lid. Once the part arrived, removed the two screws securing old switch with a phillips screw driver. Then slipping my hand between the basket and the lid using a pocket screw driver to depress one side of electrical plug and my thumb on the other, unplugged from socket and removed from machine. Install the new switch assembly, correctly routed the harness and plugged connector into socket. Repair complete.
