Unplug unit from power outlet and then detatch both hot and cold washer hoses. Remove all small bolts from back side of header panel with either a small socket or screw driver type nut driver. Carefully, pry off panel and press downward (bending downward) while lifting header panel upward to access control board( use a wedge to keep space open for access). Mark each wire connections (or write down each wire description) before unplugging from back of control board. Remove two top bolts securing control board to face plate. Important;"transfer junction connector from old unit to new unit and install new control panel". Lower control unit into lower tabs before securing the two bolts. Reinstall all necessary wires and press rear plate back into place. Make sure top and sides are aligned within the holes found on the backing plate and replace the small bolts ensuring the back panels are properly aligned and flush with the header panel. Reinstall the hot and cold hoses and plug in the washer. The control panel will reset itself after the power is restored. Start and test all selector buttons for each operation. All set from this point. Good Luck.
