I watched a youtube clip from the Repair Man to see how to change out the control panel. It was not identical to the Maytag model I had but close. I unscrewed all of the inside panel screws , located a few hidden screws for the Panel and successfully removed it by detaching it form the washer door and separating the flex cable from the controller board assembly. Did the reverse to install. The only difficulty I had was wondering if the flex cable was properly seated in the connector. The ribbon cable is a little flimsy to push into the firm connector housing.Worked like a champ after that
