I was looking for a repairman when I found your excellent website. Even with the advice from your share the stories it took almost an hour to get the control panel off the top of the machine. There were 2 sets of 2 screws and when I finally realized what sliding the panel forward toward the front of the machine meant it came right off. When I first replaced the lid switch (easy once the control panel was open) the machine still wouldn't cycle. My choice was replace the timer, call a repairman or buy a new machine. Replacing the timer was easy with the control panel already open but I had to buy a 1/4 and 3/16 hex nut driver to remove the timer. The whole repair including parts, shipping and tools cost $110. Without your diagrams and parts list I never would have had the guts to try this repair. Thanks.
