First I unplugged the machine, then I took off the top (front loader) then I pried up the plastic clips that held the microcomputer in place onto the frame. I moved all the wiring off of wire clips and began unplugging each wire and plugging it into the new board, Matching place for place. after all wiring was transferred I put the wiring bck into the wire clips. Then I pushed the clips of the the new mc onto the frame where the other was. It slipped right into place. Then I put the top back on plugged the machine in and started washing. I am a 51 year old woman who is not mechanically inclined.
