Had to unattach the top control console from the cabinet by unscrewing two screws on either side on the back, tabs holding them down -- had to hold them as you unscrew and pull them out. Carefully loosen three tabs on either side holding the panel down by pushing it forward a bit; then snap out two clips holding the back panel to the cabinet using a flathead screwdriver to pry it up being sure to keep it from flying off. Unplug the cable and pull it out from underneath after pushing the side tab down that hold it in place. Carefully ull out the outer cabinet shell to get to the switch assembly clipped underneath the top. There were two clips keeping the cabling in place. Loosen the grounding screw holding the grounding wire from the switch housing. Loosen the two screws holding the switch housing in place.

I was so fortunate to find a video that educated me before I attempted the fix. I had to refer to it in putting things back together because I found I had ordered the wrong switch and had to wait for the correct part.

When I called for return information and to order the right part number, the Customer Rep was VERY nice and patient and I received the second order very promptly. Four days after I called, I now have the machine in great working condition -- spinning and draining like new!
