I removed 3 of the 4 hinge screws. The fourth, I had to drill out. Rust had frozen it. I used 'liquid wrench', let set for about 2 hours before I used the drill. After, drilling out the screw, It was an easy job.

I recommend that the 3 pieces attached to the lid be installed prior to shipping. I almost ruined the door closed post trying to remove it from the old lid.
Had I damaged that, my washing maching would have been out of commission for another week awaiting delivery of that part.
