The video was really important to the ease of the repair. I shut off the water and electrical sources as directed. After disconnecting the timer/control assembly I disconnected the wiring connector between the main mechanism and the lid assembly. Next I released the clips that held the back of the washer to the "surround" that encases the main working parts of the washer. The surround was set aside for removal of the faulty switch. Next a careful cleaning of the entire washer removed years of dust,etc. The install of the new switch was the easiest part. The reassembly was not as easy as the disassembly had been. It was quite a trick to lift the surround back onto the frame and center it in the four pegs of the base. My wife got on the floor and directed me as to which way to move the surround. After a few tries it settled into place. I replaced the clips holding the back of the unit to the surround, connected the leads of the lid switch , Anchored the control unit to the base and after reconnecting the H2O and power lines, a successful test was performed.
