Not having an Illustrated Parts List or Assembly Drawing made it pretty much a trial and error disassembly & re-assembly.
I was finally able to determine the only way to install the switch was to remove the outer shell of the washing machine.
The replacement switch itself was very easy to install after I flipped the outer shell onto it's face and was able to gain access.
The outer shell is a little tricky to remove & flip over but once you remove the retaining springs on the top surface i.e. after removing the top control panel and the rear access panel, it becomes a lot easier.
Disassembly sequence should probably be; remove rear access panel, release top control panel (don't bother to unhook electrical connections), release outer shell retaining springs on top surface , then flip outer shell onto it's face.
