The repair on this model did not require disconnecting the water supply or drain hoses as suggested in the video presentation because it didn't have to be tipped over. Just unscrew and tip over the control panel and remove the cabinet. The lid switch and water pump are then easily accessible. The lid switch was clearly broken by visual inspection. In a model this old replacing the pump at this cost is advisable, especially since it is easy accessible. Easy job. Machine now works fine.
