Removed control panel tilted it back out of the way.
Unplugged the lid switch, pushed in these side of the control switch to release it from the machine.
Unfastened the lid switch control screws at the rim of the washers opening.
Took socket wrench and removed the ground screw.
Reached to back of machine and found the loosened wires and fed them up and slipped them from behind the secure clamp from behind the washer.
Slide the plastic channel from the lid switch out of the side clamp of washer. Then slide the loose wires up over the side clamp, that released the lid switch.
New lid switch, slide it through the under lid and washer tub, then slip the plug end of wires over the top of side clamp, slide thru the clamp to back of washer.
Took the plugin wires and slide them down behind the clamp on the back of washer. Insert plug, thru the back of washer top until it slips into place.
Green ground wire with ground wire screw and fasten it back into place with socket wrench.
Screw the lid switch into place. Then plugged the lid switch at the control panel. Flip control panel back into place making sure it was screwed back into place.
Plugged washer in and it worked like a charm.
Biggest problem was the ground screw.
