Unplug washer.Take off front panel by removing several screws. Lift up top after removing left and right side hold down bracket. Remove wax motor(brown item on left) The rotating latch will be free to remove and replace with new items. Don't forget to reattach spring. I found that my latch was not fully engaging with the teeth slightly misaligned. The locked light was on however there are two switches. One to control the lock light and one which enables the final spin to occur. After the items were changed unit ops normally. Also fast delivery (2 day) regular shipping!
