everything went just like the video showed. Just be careful with the cable clips. Ours were rusty and we needed to squeeze the end to make it stay on the edge of the lip.

Used partselect.com once before to purchase washer/dryer parts. I 100% believe in their "how-to" videos...they give you all the confidence you need to do these intimidating repairs. My husband hates projects like this, and I have found it pretty satisfying to not only fix, but diagnose problems using this website. Not that I wish for more repairs with my appliances, but it is only a matter of time before something breaks down again...and I assure you I will be back!

I watched the video. EXCELLENT description of how to replace Washer Lid Switch. I wrote down the directions, and followed them. Did almost the whole repair by myself. My husband helped remove the ground wire screw (RUSTED) and replaced it. He also helped me put the cabinet back on. (That was the hardest part) Just ran my first load, and it worked! I'm happy!!!
