The hardest part was deciding how the get the top cover lifted. My 7 year old son, who is in the cub scouts, wanted to give the repair work a try. I helped him unsnap the two lid clips and the switch connector. My son unscrewed the old switch and installed the new switch. We then had to vacuum up the enormous amount of lint, paper, and misplaced socks that were behind the washer and dryer so that Mom would be happy.
