I followed the instructions listed by others. I removed the screws that held the door on, and the screws on opposite side of door opening. Then I pulled the face piece towards me to remove it. I removed the bolts on either side that was holding the top on. Here is the part where I had to use my brain. The top would not lift, so I had to remove the cover piece for where the detergent goes. Once I got the top off I just unplugged the wires and plugged them into the new part, unscrewed the old part and installed the new one. I then put my washing machine back together and did some laundry. :)
