first I shifted thebasket to the side and removed the two screws holding the lid switch on,
then shifted the basket to the back and reached under top and unplugged the old switch, shifted the basket back to the side and
then pulled the wires out of the plastic tubing holding them out of the way.
pressed the new wires into the plastic tubing and then shifted the basket to the back to reach in to plug in the new switch. Then shifted the basket to the side to position the new switch and put the two screws into the new switch.
Since the new switch has an extra wire (green ground wire with a ring terminal on it)
i had to reach in and remove the screw for the ground wire and place the new wire on with the wire located there. Aground wire runs from the lower half of the washer to the cover and is held on with a screw. Both ground wires go on the same screw.
Quick and easy
