We took off the back of the control panel, pulled the electric plug, pulled the button off of the front, and removed the push-to-start switch contained in a clear plastic box. We slipped off the three electric wires by hand. We found the part on the website, compared it to the photos given. A few days later we replaced the mailed part reversing the above. Very easy and cheaper than buying it at the local appliance store which it had to order it anyway.
