This website was such a big help. I just followed the directions of the other prople who answered. I was able to do this even though I am not that mechanically inclined. The toughest part was removing the two metal clips that hold the back to the top. I needed a screwdriver to lift these out, but after this the repair was a simple matter of following the old switch line along the inside top of the washer body, removing the ground wire (a bit tricky because you have to lean the unit foward while trying to remove a screw that hangs down at the same time). and screwing in the new unit. Thanks to everyone who posted comments before. You were real life savers (and saved me hundreds of dollars in repair costs or replacement fees!!!!!!!). Thanks again!
