I bought the manual and the switch. I found the manual to be rather generic version that caused problems from the start because the screws to remove the control panel were not in the location shown. Once I had the machine disassembled, removing and replacing the switch was a very simple task. I took time to clean inside the cabinet. That took an extra few minutes. If I had to do this job again today, it could be done in less than 30 minutes. Note: there was a sheet metal screw on the back of the cabinet, left side, near bottom This screw was also not noted in the manual and when I pulled the cabinet forward, the screw was torn out and the cabinet bent slightly. No major damage,
