Unscrewed two screws at rear of console/controls, flipped up the console on the hinges, unplugged the Molex connector to the console, released the locking clips, pulled the outer shell of the washer forward enough to expose the lid switch, unscrewed it and pulled it out of the retaining clips, then reversed to put everything back together.

I'm in computers and IT, so washing machine repair is a bit out of my general area of expertise. That said, the lid switch is a pretty easy repair and for the cost of a $20 part and a half hour of my time I no longer need to buy a $500 washing machine.
