The Part Select on-line video is excellent! All I did differently was lay the washer casing face down on an old bedspread so I didn't have to get down on my knees when replacing the lid switch.

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!!!

With the instructional video they provided it's amazing how simple this repair was. Two screwdrivers, phillips and flat head, 5/16 nut driver and in about 20 min.I had the part replaced and the washer back together.

my lid switch has been broken for years, I had a clamp on it and it would spin even with the lid open. no problem really, in fact now I forget to close the lid and - duhhhh-- it dosen't spin.

I watched a repair video, and did as told, except we put it back together wrong the first time and couldn't level it. the front of the cabinet wasn't "hooked " on the base on one side. Back-tracked and all went well the next time. Better than paying a repair bill.

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.

Followed the video provided from the website. It was pretty easy to understand. First removed two screws that hold the control knobs, flipped that back, removed the retaining clips that hold the top and back to the machine base. Disconnected the old lid switch, move the casing out, remove the two screws that hold the switch up, disconnect the ground wire. then basically in reverse to put it back together. The video provided was very helpful and the repair went quickly! hope to get another 10 years out of this machine.

I followed the instructions on the video. One difference with the Kenmore model is that the screws were in front instead of the rear of the machine. Still had to pull the machine out to get to the rear to replace the valve. All went smoothly and the unit works like new. Now it takes less then half the time to do laundry. Great parts and timely delivery. Excellent instructional video and instructions. You folks are the best. Thank you.

Cold water filled very slowly

Looked at the instructions on PartSelect - they were very accurate even though my model was slightly different than the one in the video. Took the screws off the top 2 sides, removed the 4 off the back. Then tilted the top part towards the rear of the machine. The next part was really described well - "tilt the cover of the machine back" - I did but I was glad that my son was holding the rear panel because you really disengage the cover from the rear panel and it is a little flimsy. Ater that, the removal of the old part and install of the new was very simple. I did mark the hot water hose so I knew which outlet to put it on. Once I put it back together and tightened down the hoses, it worked like new. GREAT instructions from PartSelect. THANK YOU!
