this repair was for a friend's washing machine; I only knew that the lid switch was the problem because I spent too much $ having my washing machine fixed one month earlier. Same make, similar model. Unplug, remove the 2 end caps on the control panel..they unsnap easily. remove the 2 long philips screws at each end of the control panel near the bottom corners. these hold the control panel down. the control panel will now tilt up out of the way. the lid switch connector is a 3 pin connector near the center rear of the machine housing. disconnect. using a flat screwdriver, unsnap the 2 gold-colored steel springs near each rear corner of the housing. these hold the rear of the unit to the 1-piece front housing. keep in mind where the small flat part of each spring is inserted. after removal of springs, the entire front housing will lift off. the lid switch is attached with 2 screws to the underside of this housing. striped wire is ground, and is attached to housing. removal is self explanatory, and installation is the same. re-assembly is the same in reverse. the front housing sits on 4 small tabs at the bottom of unit. snap springs into place once housing is aligned, re-connect 3 pin connector, tilt control panel down and screw in place, and replace end caps. good luck.

This was a snap! I looked online for what the cause might be then looked for directions on how to replace it. Found exactly what I wanted and followed directions. Piece of cake. Instead of telling you how to do it..search on line for replacing lid switch assembly. Saved big bucks doing it myself!

I watched the repair video- the link was sent to me by Parts Select when I ordered the new switch. I followed the instructions step-by-step and the entire process took about 30 min. even with my three-year-old "helping" and talking to me the entire time! Very easy!

I went to you tube, watched a video on how to remove the top of the washer. The install of the part was easy. Just unpluge the connecters, remove two screws. iT TOOK ABOUT 30 MINUTES. Easy, the best part was how fast the replacement part came, this company is great.

Following another tip from this blog, I unscrewed the assembly and let it dangle. Then I used screw nuts to attach the wires. Big tip: Cut off the wires right next to the old assembly and use the smallest wire nuts you can find. It's a little tight, but can be done. The grounding wire is not a factor. Took me 10 minutes. Thank you partselect!

Last time the washer had this problem, it was the lid switch. Jumped the connector to make sure that was the problem. Ordered new switch. Followed the directions on-line, but did not understand which screw to take out of the back panel of the washing machine. Turns out, did not need that step. Must have a different model than the one used in the demo. Everything else worked exactly like the repair demo.

Your video was very helpful, we watched twice before disassembling washer, it was difficult, because the space was small, we tried not to take water tubes out. Anyway finally we changed the switch, washer works fine now. Many thanks.

The washer would fill but not run.

I determined the problem from the Partselect website and ordered the switch. I received the switch and watched the repair video on the website. It seemed like a lot of disassembly at first for this but it was necessary and not at all difficult after watching the video. I completed the repair in about 30 minutes. I would like to add that by using the Partselect website, I have diagnosed and repaired a refrigerator (condenser fan & icemaker), and dishwasher (thermal fuse), all in the past 90 days. I am very satisfied with your service and have recommended you to many people so far. Thank You.
