First, I unplugged the washing machine, then I removed the front panel from the machine by unscrewing the screws on top of the washer (4 or 5 screws).. then used the socket set to remove the control assy (the part needing replacement),..this came apart quite easily..there were only several pieces to unscrew...then I disconnected the few wires,..3 or 4, which look similar to computer wires due to the fact that it is really obvious where they plug in to, so there is no chance to make a mistake on the connection. Once they were unplugged, I pulled out the old part, which came out easily, then pushed in the new part & reconnected the wires & closed everything up again.
It was very easy...the machine works great again...saved a lot of money doing it myself. I don't consider myself "mechanically inclined", so if I did this easily, I think anyone will be able to do it..I was afraid that once I took things apart, that I wouldn't remember how to put everything back together in the correct order, but there were so few parts that there was really no chance for confusion.
