Easily removed four screws holding the front door panel on, then accessed the two 1/4 in. hex head screws holding the old switch with the 1/4 in. nut driver.
The electrical terminals are pull off/push on and then I re-assembled the new switch to it's mounting bracket. Re-assemble the door face, fixed!!!!
