The job itself was easy in general. It took me a little longer because the ground screw was rusted and I had go figure out how to get it off. I used wd-40 and some serious thought LOL. I want to give credit to Repair Clinic on Youtube and some forums for help determining the problem and being able fix it.

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!

Unfortunately, I had started taking apart the washing machine before I got frustrated and found this video. I wasted sooo much time. When I found the PartSelect.com video, I followed the steps exactly and it was a breeze. I was done in 15 min, tops. Now I will always check PartSelect.com before making any appliance home repairs :) Being able to do this saved me a ton of money, as well. I love this site!

The hardest part was moving everything, once the cabinet was removed from the washer replacing the switch for the lid was easy. Good for another ten years...

washer would not drain and spin, timer would continue and sometimes load is too wet.

With no broke springs I thought that they might be weak so I ordered them but didn't install them as I found that the basket had a drag at one point of turning it, so I took it down to the clutch and found the nylon arm that released the brake had the small pins broken off. This would cause the brake to not release full enough that the eccentricity in it had a drag spot during the spin causing tremendous vibration. To disassemble I took the transmission off and the basket off and install new clutch assembly with the basket laying horizontal on a table. I did notice that the new clutch only had three pads on the band and the old one had six. I called you back with no satisfaction, but was given the phone # of the manufacturer and they confirmed that theirs had six pads but the part # checked out so I installed it. It now sits basically still during a cycle. I made and supervised the making of parts in a machine shop all my working carrier and I don't understand the weak link of the nylon pins milled / molded on a part that takes a lick from the actuator every cycle. It appears to me it was made to break, but it is about 20 years old. Thanks for your video help on the tube. Fred
