I removed the screws behind the top unit of the washer and flipped back the top to expose the wiring. I disconnected the wiring from the old lid switch. I tilted back the outer shell of the washer and moved it back off of the wash basin part. I removed the wiring from the harness along the underside of the shell and unscrewed the screws holding the broken switch in place. I installed the new switch in its place and ran the wiring through the harness. I put the shell back on the base and reattached the power clip. I closed the top unit and reattached the screws in the back and the washer was back and working.
