Unplugged the washer and removed the two screws at the bottom corners of the control panel and identified the source-plug of the lid switch assembly. I followed the switch and found two metal clips along the way that I pried off with my fingers. The grounding wire was screwed to the frame behind the switch and a little tricky to get to, but with a wrench and some flexibility it came out easily, but don't drop that screw! I removed the old part, and installed the new assembly by attaching the ground wire again and pressing the metal clips back onto the frame. After fastening the control panel again, the washer tested fine and works like new.
