Unplug washer. Remove screws from the front control panel and tilt back. Switch is located on top right of washer when open. Trace back wires from switch to control panel and disconnect. Then remove wire harness form metal clips and unscrew switch from washer. Also carefully remove green ground wire from inside washer by tilting drum to right to give you more room. Use open end wrench to loosen grd screw and then turn by hand. You do not need to remove the top as described in other stories, but you may need to remove gold clips under control panel to release the back panel a little to reach in and remove connector and clips holding on wire harness. With good light, look through front crack separating washer front and top to view inside this description and procedure.
