I read other peoples repair advice and did what they suggested.I suggest after taking screws out of control panel and exposing metal clips that connect back panel to cabinet,to remove clips and slide cabinet into an open space ,(utility room, kitchen ,or what ever may be the case)and then you will have room to install lid switch. after switchassembly is installed return cabinet to frame and slide back into place and re-install clips to back panel. then reinstall control panel and you should be ready to go.

Help other customers find the most helpful instructions.
