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.

The repair on this model did not require disconnecting the water supply or drain hoses as suggested in the video presentation because it didn't have to be tipped over. Just unscrew and tip over the control panel and remove the cabinet. The lid switch and water pump are then easily accessible. The lid switch was clearly broken by visual inspection. In a model this old replacing the pump at this cost is advisable, especially since it is easy accessible. Easy job. Machine now works fine.

the pump would not start after wash cycle. timer would not advance

Washer would not drain - cause:failed lid switch

Followed the excellent instructions and video.to replace the lid switch. As noted in some of the comments, a few people experienced difficulty in reinstalling the main enclosure so it would lock in place. I did too. Instructions to reverse the dis-assembly are precisely correct, ..key is to center then slide the front of the enclosure into place while enclosure is slightly tipped toward the front, then let the enclosure rotate back in place. Finally figuring out to follow the directions exactly was the most time consuming aspect of the job. BTW, found did not need to remove the hoses since could do the whole job essentially in place. Great diagnostic, great installation instructions. Still can''t figure out why switch needed to be shipped in such a big box.

The machine won't drain, won't continue the cicle.

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

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.
