I diagnosed the problem using the symptom list on the web site. The real give-away was that I could get the washer to start draining and spinning by poking my pinky finger into the hole on the right side to activate the bad lid switch (and keeping it there until the washer was completely drained). Once we got the new switch, we just followed the directions on the video. It was very straightforward. We saved at least $110 (The part plus shipping cost only $40. Sears had said they would charge $150 just to come over and look at the washer).
