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!

We watched the repair video on the site twice and then were easily able to change out the lid switch assembly using a screwdriver and socket wrench. Prior to finding your site, we were searching new washers at a minimum of $700, so this saved us A LOT and was not time-consuming at all.

First, watch the video. Its dead on. Started to watch it a second time after the part arrived, but decided not to. Should have!!! Disassembly went just like the video...very smooth. Forgot a few steps on the re-assembly and had to do it over twice. If I'd re-watched the video I'd have been done in 20 minutes. Machine works great now. Thanks for your help and instructions. Saved me $450.00

washer would not start due to the failure of the switch

Had to remove the control panel and the back of the machine to get to the leads for the switch. Then installed the switch, but had to move the ground wite to the back of the machine because I could not get to the ground screw in the top of the machine. I just added it to an existing ground wire screwed to the back. Everything worked fine.

Washer would not empty

I watched the videos on the PartSelect website:- extremely helpful! My machine configuration was a little different from that in the video but this was not a problem. Both parts were very simple to remove and install. The only problem was refitting the unit consisting of the washer front, two sides and top. The video warns of the need to ensure that the two sides properly engage in the lugs on the base. Once I realized that I could look through the top (hold the lid open) to help with the repositioning, the task was simple. If I had noticed this earlier, the repairs would have taken less than 30 minutes.

Lid switch assembly stopped working

I unscrewed the two screws in the back of the machine on each side of the top. After gently lifting it up and taking a peek inside I saw two clamps holing the back to the washer, I used a flat head screw driver to work them loose and put them to the side. After removing the top, it exposed the switch connection where you plug in the end of the switch. pushing the body forward exposed the rest of the switch. using a philip head screw driver I unscrewed the two screws under the lip to release the switch from the washer body and used a small socket to unscrew the screw for the ground. Two clips hold the assembly underneath the inside of the top of the body they slide on so you can pry them off and then pinch the ends so they will hold again. after installing the assembly lower the body back down,reinstall clamps that hold back to washer body making sure the back slides under the control board top, reinstall screws and you're ready to wash again.

I must say I thought I was about to tackle something way over my ability. I went on your website and saw someone else's comments and instructions. WOW after that it was mush easier :) I knew as a female this could not be hard to do, so I went for it! I was able to complete the job in 2 hours (had a little trouble getting to the washer to work on it) I am now doing my wash YAHOO! Thank you so much for posting others experiences and instructions because it helped me to get the job done on my own.

Every time my wash got to the rinse or spin cycle it would stop running. I had to manually push the lid switch down and hold it in place to finish the load.

I followed the repair video to the tee! I took my tablet and placed it next to the washer and paused it in between steps long enough for me to do each step then started it again. Worked like a charm. I am 63 and did it all by myself with the help of your video. Had it done in under 30 minutes.
