I watched the video. Not as easy to hand start the screws ,as shown, in the new hinges (I replaced both) I used a drill with a phillips bit to pre start the screws with the hinge in a vise. It then had threads cut, which made it possible to hand start, and I finished with the drill/bit to tighten up.

Broken hinge on the lid

Exactly like the video told me to! Seriously, I watched once when I ordered the parts, watched it again just before I started the job, and played each step as I completed that step. It simply could not have been easier. Without the video, I doubt I could have located and released the latches on the top of the washer, but seeing not only where he put the knife but the motion he used to spring them made that step so much easier than I thought it would be. With your help, I only paid a quarter of what the repairman wanted to make this simple fix -- Thank you!

I followed the instructions on your video - it was very helpful! I would have never figured out how to take the top off without the video instructions. I released the top latches using the putty knife, removed the broken lid hinge & pin and installed the new ones.

Don't get unhinged by this easy repair. Easily ordered on line and got the part in two days. The only hard part was the screw was inside up under the washer body and not visible. I had to use an "s" shaped screw driver to take out and put in one screw due to the small work space.

The repair went smoothly with no issues or problems. The video link sent with the receipt made all the difference in the world. I watched the video on my iPad as I was doing the repair. Also locating the parts I needed on the part select website could not have been simpler.

Ordered two new hinge pins as well as hinges. (Did not want to have to deal with it again so chose a full change out.) Watched a U-Tube video that described how to change out the hinges. The trick is find out how to lift the top panel on the washer to access the screws that anchor the hinges. Use a putty knife and slide it into the space between the top panel and the front panel. Got the job done today in an hour or so. Chose to also wipe out the top of the wash tub at the same time so it took a bit longer. Works fine now. Just like new.
