I was able to install only removing the 2 back screws off the control panel and by tilling that back. The control panel is on hinges so only 2 screws and pull forward and flip up. I didn’t removing anything else.

I hardest part was removing and reinstalling the ground wires. I have long fingers and just tilted the washer drum to the one side to reach in with pliers to remove and reinstall the ground wire screw. If you don’t have long fingers this might be a bit harder to do.
