First, let me say that the parts arrived really fast,--thnaks for the great service!

First I removed the screws inside the door edges. This releases the front door panels allowing access to the detergent cup parts. Then I removed the old cam return spring, the old cam (and the old spring underneath the cam) and the old bi-metal switch. The instructions were pretty clear on how to install the new style return spring and new cam. Then I installed the new bi-metal switch.

Really, the hardest part of the whole repair is getting the door panels back in the proper place so that the screw holes are aligned. That probably took longer than the rest of the repair job.

The new parts have the detergent cup working like new again. Very satisfying repair!
