We began by tracing the original lid switch wires to the front dial in the top cabinet. Once the screws to the top cabinet were removed, we were able to trace the wires and find out how the other end fit in. Through trial and error, we found out that the front of the washer could be pulled forward and lowered. We were then able to access, remove and replace the entire assembly.

The lid switch had broken apart.

I ordered the part and it was delivered in 3 days! I viewed the video again and installed the lid switch. It was just that easy. It went exactly per the video! I will use PartSelect the next time I have an appliance problem. I figure I saved at least $100.00 and got it done in less time (shipping and all) than the repair people could get me in! Thanks PartSelect!

Basin fills with water, tub doesn't spin, nor does pump engage

The symptoms gave every indication that power wasn't getting to the washer, other than to the control panel. By reaching over the tub I could feel the switch and push it down. It didn't feel right. No "click" and the lever seemed to have too much travel. The unit was in a rental property and was full of water and tenant clothing. Taking the washer apart to further diagnose the problem had drawbacks so I ordered the switch with high confidence that that was the failed part. The repair was simple. Remove the screws that hold down the control panel and that hold the case to the frame. Rock the case forward and the switch is easily accessible.

I made my husband watch the video which gave him general idea of how to replace the lid switch. Our model is a bit different but basically the same and he didn't have any problems with the replacement. And it gave me a chance to clean underneath - yippee! Thank you so much - the website was very helpful!! I'd recommend it to anyone!!
